Marshal Goldsmith’s 6 Question Process - - Coaching for Leaders

My friend Ed Nottingham at FedEx points us to a great 6 minute video by executive coach and best selling author Marshal Goldsmith where he outlines his "6 Question Process".

Goldsmith's Six Question Process is designed to help team leaders give team members useful feedback in a coaching relationship. 

Every two or three months the team leader has a one-on-one dialogue with each direct report.

The six questions:

  1. Where are we going?
  2. Where are you going?
  3. What do you think  you're doing well?
  4. If you were the coach for you, what suggestions for improvement would you have?
  5. How can I help?
  6. What suggestions do you have for me to be a better manager?

Learn how to be the ultimate team leader in the Leader As Coach Fast Track Program

I really appreciated receiving the 6 question plan from a friend. As a private school administrator, I find direct and immediate application of the material to our teacher evaluation process. Excellent, relational and effective!
