Brian Souza is the CEO and founder of Productivity Drivers Inc and author of the NYT bestselling book, “The Weekly Coaching Conversation.” Today – not surprisingly – Brian and I have a wide ranging conversation about coaching! We get into research Brian has done which found that there is a direct correlation between the quantity and quality of coaching that an individual receives and their level of performance improvement. No surprise there. But it’s probably also no surprise that 44% of employees report never having received any constructive coaching or developmental feedback. We dig into where the big disconnects are between expectations and reality when it comes to coaching. We also dive into Brian’s Weekly coaching conversation framework. And how to prepare yourself to be a great coach.
