Subtly coaching, leading and mentoring

  • Instead of outright telling someone you’re going to lead, coach or mentor them, be subtler:
  • Instead of “I’ll tell you how we’re going to execute”, try “How do you think we should execute?”
  • Instead of “Let me coach you how to do that”, try “Can you explain what makes you do that way?”
  • Instead of “I will mentor you”, try “I would love to compare how you do things to how I do them.”
