Simulate a coaching interview in a role play (you being the coachee), provide feedback, and encourage your candidate to practise personal development issues.
Try and find out with your candidate which aspects of coaching he would like to develop. Write down a number of goals and action points.
Ask your candidate to think about the question what stops him from coaching other people. Where is his resistance coming from? Ask the candidate to coach someone on an ‘easy’ issue and review what happens.
Discuss with the candidate what the organization’s goals are and how they affect his daily routine. Discuss whether he can learn or develop things in order to help achieving these goals.
