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
