  • Think of Directive Feedback you could give someone, and a Positive Reinforcement message you could give someone else. These messages should be about something realistic, even if they are not for something that is happening (or has happened). To prepare you to practice the skill of giving these types of messages, complete the worksheet on page 13 in the Participant Workbook.
  • Think of an expectation you need to give someone (or could or would like to give someone). As much as possible, it should be actual (realistic), and involved (requiring more than a sentence or two to explain). To prepare you to practice the skill of giving clear expectations, complete the worksheet on page 16 in the Participant Workbook.
  • Use the Action Plan on page 24 in the PW and write down two specific actions you will take to remember and apply what you learned. The actions should be related to the content and have a date for when you will complete them.
  • Think of an area of performance improvement or development you recognize in someone you supervise. Complete either the Coaching for Performance Improvement or Coaching for Development worksheet based on which type of coaching you choose.
