ABSTRACT
The article highlights the seven steps of spot-coaching. The first step is to deliver open-ended questions to get people thinking about and owning their problem. One is advised to resist their request of having one solve the problem for them. One can show the people the steps and watch them do those steps by themselves. Other steps include suggesting one to see to it that the people understand the process and expressing confidence in their abilities.
