TWIL – Ep.1

I’m starting to write This Week I Learn (TWIL) in the spirit of continuous improvement. I hope it helps me remember how far I go and get feedback on my thought; even better, it allows you not to be trapped on similar mistakes.

As a #coach, I just realized we often face the unideal situation. Some of our co-workers left the company, and I need to keep the team engaged and continue to run the business.

This week I learn that just supporting the team in this condition with just literally saying “come on guys,” “what can I help,” etc., sounds/feels useless. We need to change our uniform from a coach to an enabler: “so, what should I do?” “how to make this happen?” etc.

It’s a different spirit.

I know there will be a judgment: “No, as a coach, you have to make your team able to do the task by themself (self-organized).”

Yes, I know it. But I think the most important thing, in the beginning, is to fulfill the team’s needs first. Along the way, then we can start to delegate the task one by one.

Just my thought, do you have any other better idea?
