Hi from Sybil!
I really enjoy your coaching tips! Speaking of tips..... I am a waitress and
I am campaigning for my Be Kind To Food Servers Month to be nationally recognized through Congress. Congressman Steve Cohen is helping me with the Bill. I am also a stand-up comedienne and I have a healthy coffee business and a Juice-superfoods business. I recruit distributors and customers and I can see how your coaching techniques can help me. Read my blog please! Please be my friend. I am happy I found you on FohBoh!

Some of my beliefs on coaching:
1. It needs to be shoulder to shoulder.
2. Do not forget the "Tell, Show, Do, Validate" method.
3. Praise and then give feedback.
Someone on this page mentioned "Smile". It is my firm belief that you cannot train or coach someone to smile. This is something you need to hire. You can train talent, but things like being high energy or smiling is what you need to look for in a prospective candidate.
Coaching above all needs a lot of "patience" - Do you have it?

I believe that coaching can also mean mentoring as well as training. Does anyone have any good websites that would involve train the trainer information. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out.

Hello all.
I'd love to share my insights, visions, opportunities and outlook for change, in this group. Being a lead trainer in my restaurant, as well as trainer at the corporate level, I feel I'd be able to contribute some coaching ideas.

When I need to "coach" or change a behavior, I always start with a compliment, then on to the problem. Jimmy your pies look good today, but I have noticed that your thin crust pies aren't quite as good as the hand tossed. Is there something I can help you with? What I have noticed is your sauce line is much too thick on the thin crust and that usually makes a very messy pizza.....etc.etc

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
