The Transformative Power of Building a Coaching Habit

Have you ever attended a training session and felt enlightened but found yourself back to your old ways soon after?

Why is it so challenging to implement changes, particularly when TRANSITIONING FROM GIVING ADVICE TO ASKING QUESTIONS?

The struggle is real. The comfort of giving advice, with its immediate sense of contribution and control, often overshadows the slower, more uncertain process of asking questions. Yet, embracing this shift is crucial for breaking free from the vicious cycles that plague workplaces: overdependence, overwhelm, and disconnection.

Building a coaching habit promises a way out. It fosters self-sufficiency within your team, enhances focus on impactful work, and reconnects everyone with the meaningful aspects of their roles. Imagine a workplace where autonomy, mastery, and purpose are not just buzzwords but the foundation of your team’s culture.

But how do we make this shift? The key lies in understanding our habits. Our actions are less a product of conscious decisions and more the result of subconscious patterns. To create a new habit, start by making a vow not for personal gain but for the benefit of others. Identify what triggers your old habit, define your new behaviour in simple, specific terms, and commit to practising deeply. And when you falter, have a plan to get back on track.

Here’s a practical example to illustrate:

  • When this happens: After I’ve asked a question…
  • Instead of: Adding another question, driven by curiosity…
  • I will: Ask just one question and wait patiently for the answer.

This micro-habit, simple yet powerful, embodies the essence of effective coaching. It encourages listening, fosters deeper understanding, and empowers others to find solutions.

Are you ready to challenge the status quo and lead by empowering? Start small, stay consistent, and watch as this new habit transforms your leadership style and your team’s dynamic. 

Love. Simone
