    Coaching 101: Do Your Employees Come To You To Help You?

    One of the greatest tests we can perform is to ask ourselves as leaders the following question: "do my employees come to me offering to help for the betterment of the team and the organization arbitrarily"?

    This seems like such a simple question but I think it's a great litmus test for all of us. As a teacher and facilitator of the art of coaching I often ask myself if I practice what I preach and I must be honest. Often I do but quite frankly often I do not. Recently I was having conversation with one of my employees and about two days later she reached out to me on a weekend and asked if I needed help with a particular project the company was working on. I told her not to worry about it it was the weekend and to enjoy your weekend. An hour later the work was sent to me completed. I thought to myself this is a really good representation that I do practice what I preach but was also a great reminder I probably need to do it more!
