MVP: 5-minute coaching can help you tell whether someone is learning or drowning
If I’m learning to swim, give me feedback.
If I’m drowning, throw me a life preserver!
The same holds true for those we serve, but it can be hard to tell the difference between learning and drowning, especially with people who are new their jobs.
Is the new teacher trying to figure out how to align activities with learning standards, or is he just throwing out activities because he is overwhelmed with all the facets of the job?
It can be hard to tell just by watching, which is why being present is so important.
5-minute coaching session?
In that five-minute conversation, you will know whether they are drowning or learning to swim.
