    We spend billions on leadership development, but what about the other side, the people receiving leadership and in this case coaching? What if we taught people how to receive feedback? What if we taught them skills to improve their "coaching reception" skills. This could include how to:

    • Seek and receive feedback.
    • How an employee could go about motivating himself or herself.
    • Understand why they own their attitude and what they can do to improve it.
    • Engage and participate as a willing employee.

    We've trained employees to understand one fundamental thing and that's when leaders call them into their offices it's going to be bad news; therefore, employees have been conditioned to receive constructive feedback on a continuous basis. The bosses office comes with preconceived notions of what's going to occur which quite frankly we've conditioned as leaders and is not fair to employees. What if we made an effort as collective management teams inside organizations to pursue leveraging each and every employee strengths while teaching them how to seek and receive feedback? What if we taught employees specific skill sets associated with owning and developing positive attitudes? If we did these two things wouldn't it make the delivery and the reception of coaching more successful?

    What if we trained employees to become more coach-able? What if we assessed employees on their coach-ability to provide managers insight how to coach them? Well, you can now do both! SEE BELOW
