Today we are at G in the Leadership A-z. Whether we are talking about gumption, gains, guidance, or grace, the team leader's role requires a number of hats to be worn.
In focusing on what your team needs support in, one of the most beneficial uses of time can be spent in goal setting, collectively and individually.
Many past blog posts have focused on different frameworks - the SMART-E goal framework (Teams365 #101) and the importance of writing them down (#Teams365 #103).
Goals are the central focus of any coaching conversation. You can refer back to the summer series of posts on coaching skills for leaders here (#Teams365 #191 to #Teams 365 #197), More than a decade ago John Whitmore introduced his GROW Coaching Model, which starts with GOALS - Where are you now? Where do you want to go?
As you consider some of your final 1-1s of the year, how can you support you team members in a tighter focus around GOALS, possibly using the GROW Model?
