Why Performance Conversations Get Sidetracked, And What To Do About It

Ever try to bring up some constructive feedback, only to have it sidetracked? “I don’t have a good enough computer,” “My accounts aren’t as good as everyone else’s,” or “You think I’m bad at that? You should see how bad this other person is!”

These grievances are “real,” but getting sidetracked by them doesn’t do anyone any favors.

That’s why I sat down with Tim Sackett to talk about why coaching conversations get sidetracked, and how to refocus things.

Even the most experienced managers can get sidetracked, so take Tim’s tips and apply them to your own coaching conversations!
