Great advice on sustaining coaching

I got some great advice via the HR Toolbox

"We find that our leaders are always pressed for time and tend to let coaching fall through the cracks unless they are being regularly "coached to coach." We take several approaches to address this:

- Field-based trainers meet with the leaders they support once a month to specifically discuss coaching. They focus on what's working, what's not working and individual opportunities.

- We encourage senior leaders (directors) to host quarterly coaching roundtables with their managers. This provides a forum to share best practices and to reinforce key coaching principles.

- We have an on-line site for leaders that focuses on coaching tips and tools. This site is constantly refreshed with new content. "
