Coach has given me some food for thought, as it relates to my own coaching style at work with fellow employees and family at home. I’m able to have a more direct line of communication with my family and co-workers, even if I don’t answer their questions right away. Coach has helped me understand that I do not need to respond immediately to statements or questions from fellow co-workers. I’m allowed to take the time to respond their questions, which in turn offers more time for me to think about how I will answer the question. I no longer have to “shoot from the hip” on everything. By taking a moment to respond or make statements, it usually improves the outcome in the long term, not just in the moment.
