“Coaches don’t practice with the team and leave them during the game when it really counts, and neither do good empathic leaders. They are there to provide support, guidance, understanding, and motivation through every step of the way.”  

The above quote by Rae Shanahan, Chief Strategy Officer for Businessolver, perhaps best summarizes a vital takeaway from my interview with Carm Moceri, Principal, Certified Executive Coach of Healthcare Alignment Solutions, in Episode 4 of the CHVW Podcast.

As you will discover, through his vast leadership and coaching experiences, Carm builds a compelling case for why and how leaders serving as a “Performance Coach” (versus a manager) might better support, engage, and develop their employees. 

Here is a look at the critical questions and Performance Coaching approaches we explored:

  • Why Performance Coaching?: What is Performance Coaching, and what are the benefits of coaching versus managing employees?
  • Training Leaders as Coaches: Why should organizations train leaders (at all levels) in Performance Coaching?
  • Coaching vs. Mentoring vs. Advising: How are they different, and when might a leader use one vs. the other or engage an integrated approach?
  • “Coaching Up”: When might a leader engage in “Coaching Up,” and with whom?
  • Active/Appreciative Inquiry: How and when might leaders effectively use “Appreciative Inquiry” in coaching conversations with their employees?
  • Garnering Feedback in Coaching Sessions: Why is it essential to ask for feedback, and when is the best time to ask?

Whether you are a leader, employee, executive or wellness coach, this episode offers tactical insights to support your role and amplify your performance.
