    1. Ask your managers coaching questions to ensure that coaching is being used throughout the organization. An example of a good coaching the manager question would be: who are you coaching right now that you the most proud of and what are you doing specifically to facilitate the positive change?
    2. As managers to complete a weekly summary of who they are coaching, what they are coaching to, what's working and what has been the most challenging.
    3. When coaching managers to coach, one of the things that can easily occur is very vague and ambiguous type language such as, I've been coaching my group for a few months now on a particular topic. This seems very trite but what we want to hear are the specific things that they are observing and actually doing to facilitate a positive change. The best way to do this is to as a 'what' question followed by the word 'specifically'.
