    I have said for almost 30 years that coaching is a two step process. First, you want people to look in the mirror. #2, you want people to take action on #1 yet very few people do number one arbitrarily on their own. That's why we need to coach our people to first establish a foundation of self-awareness which will lead to accelerated talent development. Self-awareness is difficult for people. Self-awareness causes people to look in the mirror and look at themselves. Let me save you the suspense you will have many employees who don't even own mirrors. The power of coaching and the specific use of questions will help open up that door to each and every one of your employees. It's time to open the self-awareness door!
