Coaching in Assessment Conversations (2)

Experience self (ES) versus Remembrance self (RS)

Possible positions in a evaluation conversation:

ES (manager-coach) & ES (employee-client)
ES (manager-coach) &
RS (employee-client)
RS (manager-coach) & ES (employee-client)
RS (manager-coach) & RS (employee-client)

A good secquence


quite similar to GROW model.

The manager-coach must stick with his ES!

In search of curiosity

Curiosity (from Latin curiosus "careful, diligent, curious,"
akin to cura "care") is an emotion related to
natural inquisitive behavior such as
, investigation, and learning,
evident by observation in human and many animal species.

The need of evaluating emerges from the need of
change something you
and the employee are stuck in –
he is unable to explore by himself.

You do listening and questioning, but is a false approach if

you know the answers when you put the question!

You can not investigate, and to learn from, to move forward:

something you are unable to be curious about!

A manager-coach’s very feature

in evaluating an employee

has to be curiosity i.e.

being in a state of
Awareness, Consciousness, and Tru
st -
toward the other, and toward him self -
for Performance, Learning, and Enjoyment,

both the
manager, and the employee.

Evaluating is about language – verbal and nonverbal

Problem - ?

Empowerment - ?

Emotional loaded - ?

Coaching is about language too.

ROI is about…


(Kevin Roberts, CEO Saatchi&Saatchi)


in assessment conversations increases

responsibility and mobility

for both manager and employee.

Coaching in Assessment Conversations (1)

Conferinta "Coaching 12", Bucuresti, 23 mai

Asking is changing
“A fundamental limit on the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, such as position x and momentum p, can be simultaneously known.
(Uncertainty Principle)

Evaluation session is grounded in
asking questions:
Gathering/sending information
Building/maintaining relationship
Awaking creativity/Solving problems
Resolving conflicts/Making decisions
Staying on the track/Initiating action
Managing individual change

Questions are the most influential and creative aspect
of speaking and listening.
How to develop a systematic way of questioning:
Thinking about
“Only new questions
can call for new answers.”
(M.C. Goldberg)

Assessment conversation
Look who’s talking too
There are internal conversations both verbal and nonverbal, and the questions asking inside
program our thoughts, feeling and actions
in site/sight.
Daniel Kahneman on the difference betweenexperience selves (ES) and remembrance selves (RS).

The ES lives its life continuesly, it has moments of experience – one aftter the other. (..)The RS defines a story - the story the memory delivers for us, and is also true that we make up changes, significant moments and endings, endings are very very important. (..)”

When asking a question are you as a manager-coachexperiencing your living-in-the present self oryou are preparing a story for your remembrance self?!
When answering a question is the employee-client experiencing the living-in-the-present selfor he is preparing a story for her/his remembrance self?
