Coaching employees is like solving a Rubik's cube. Each Rubik's cube is solved differently, you need to use a different combination of steps, algorithms, and processes to get the end result. However, to start solving the cube, you need to get the base cross. This is the first thing you aim to do when you start solving a Rubik's cube, solve for the base cross, once you have the cross, you can figure out how to solve the rest of the cube. The fundamental attributes are this cross. Once an employee has a good handle on these fundamental attributes, you can coach them in all the skill and performance areas that they need to improve upon.
