Every Manager Needs to Practice Two Types of Coaching

Calendar-Driven Coaching

Increasing the number of scheduled discussions will positively impact both employee performance and the perception of your effectiveness as a manager. But to have a high payoff, these scheduled sessions need to be more than a quick “How’s it going?” chat.

Event-Driven Coaching

Another kind of coaching session is not sparked by a date on the calendar; it arises spontaneously after some specific incident or activity.
