Consistency is key
Mark's biggest piece of coaching advice: be consistent. Never leave your reps guessing what's coming next (or wondering what just happened). Here are some other quick tips straight from the horse's mouth:
Share questions ahead of time, so reps have time to reflect and prepare responses.
- Track questions, meeting notes and action plans online and share with individual reps, so goals remain top of mind and everyone's held accountable to anything agreed upon in the 1:1.
- Make sure questions are clear and straightforward, with a mix of observation, reflection, and application questions.
- Celebrate every win.
