Strategic Communication Strategies #1: Ask Individuals for Their Input
- What would you do first if you became the owner of this business?
- What do I need to know about your work that I may not know?
- What do you need to know about the business that you don’t already know?
- What seems to work well here?
- What doesn’t work so well?
- What opportunities do you see that we’re really not exploiting?
- What problems do you see ahead that we’re not discussing?
- What do customers/members say to you about our product or service?
Strategic Communication Strategies #2: Get Feedback from Colleagues and Leadership about Team Members
Clients have asked me to conduct 360 interviews with individuals who they want to promote or who need professional development. Below you will find a few key questions which will reveal how others see the team member. Once I interview from 5-10 key individuals I create a report to share with the coaching client. I make sure that he or she will not know who responded and always look for patterns.
1. What are the strengths of _____?
2. What 3 things does_____ need to do to make a promotion?
3. What does ____ need to stop, continue and change?
I have many more revealing questions which I share with the coaching client. If you decide to do this make sure that the person who conducts the interviews is trustworthy. Feel free to contact me to find out how I can help you interview your employee’s leaders, colleagues, and clients. I create a report and share this with the employee. I always spin the information that all the information is helpful. I discuss how we ALL have blind spots if the client tells me that he or she does not agree or trust the people who I interview.
I want to hear from you!
