I wanted to share another reminder that this blog will soon move to a new location. I'm changing from the U of M UThink blog service to Google's Blogger. This will make it easier for me to update and add new entries to my blog.
The new blog will be called Coaching Buttons: Jim Hall's blog, and references "coaching buttons", or coaching of the moment where I take an available opportunity to do a brief coaching conversation with someone. For example, a manager might find him/herself early for a meeting, only one staff member is there, giving the manager a short time for a "coaching button". Never waste an opportunity for coaching, however brief. The "coaching button" might only cover one question without an opportunity for follow-up questions to delve deeper - but if you can find frequent opportunities for several "buttons", I find it can be helpful.
I'll share the URL for the new blog next week. Don't forget to update your bookmarks or RSS reader.
