    A common theme that emerges with many of my coaching clients is that they would like more feedback. They would like to know if they are doing a good job and are on track with what is expected of them. Further, if they are not meeting the expectations, they would like to know what they need to do differently.

    I encourage my clients to “coach up” by being proactive and ask for feedback.

    Here is a simple feedback tool that works for many situations:

    Ask: What should I start doing, stop doing and continue to do?

    Another variation is: What should I do more of, less of and continue to do?

    These simple questions can help you get specific feedback and information that can help you stay on top of your game.

    Try this tool and give me your feedback on how it worked for you.
