Scott – I recently had a store become available, and I had four Operators ask for this location. So this model gave me a very effective process to go through and almost interview them to help them understand. It’s not just something that I can say “yes, you’re qualified” or “no, you’re not qualified.” It’s just given me a great process so that when we get through,repparttar two of us feel good aboutrepparttar 148860 outcome orrepparttar 148861 decision that’s been made.

Q – What isrepparttar 148862 one thing that you would tell workshop participants before sending them outrepparttar 148863 door?

Phil – I would say that they don’t need to hide this. They should openly userepparttar 148864 Coaching Skills Model. Apply it to every situation you can. I think you can be real open with this, whether it is for performance improvement or starting a project, or whatever.

Scott – They need to seek out every opportunity they can to userepparttar 148865 model. And more importantly, userepparttar 148866 individual behaviors or skills associated with that model. Use it in as many opportunities as you can. It’s just like a muscle, you know you’ve got to use it or lose it. It is probablyrepparttar 148867 most powerful tool of influence that I’ve found, and it’s just because ofrepparttar 148868 questions that I ask. First, it comes across that I really care, and second, I’m asking very insightful questions that are important torepparttar 148869 issue and I’m not providing all ofrepparttar 148870 answers. When I ask those questions, it either engages them emotionally or intellectually. It’s like you grab their heat or their head. It invokes emotion or thought. When you sit down and take somebody through that process, it’s just a very healthy process to follow and it just gets powerful results.

Q – It sounds like you’re telling me that effective Coaching Skills is not just something you do, it’s something you become?

Scott – Yes. That isrepparttar 148871 deal. You know, I have a very strong desire to become good at what we understand is coaching (skills). I kind of equate it with focusing on results and focusing onrepparttar 148872 relationship. We all want to get results, but I never want to get results atrepparttar 148873 expense of sacrificingrepparttar 148874 relationship. But if I spend all my energy onrepparttar 148875 relationship and not focus on results, we’ll berepparttar 148876 best friends inrepparttar 148877 world, but neither one of us will be very effective. Both are important inrepparttar 148878 process.
