Who are you coaching?

Are you the manager of a new learner . . .

Or an expert . . . Source: Nathan Rogers,

We must adjust our management style to meet our direct reports where they are right now, and adjust our parenting style to meet our children where they are right now.

It can be difficult to switch gears, but it is imperative if we are to maintain a quality relationship. The first step: recognize where the direct report (or child) is in the continuum from new learner to expert. Don't know? Ask where they perceive they stand now.
