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: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
