MI Coaching is of course a big part of what we do here at JSAT, and this is because we believe in it so much. It also happens to be one of the key drivers for effective implementation of any new skill within an organization. So we get just a tad excited about this subject!
When it comes to selecting staff to develop MI skills, there are two camps of thought. In one camp, all staff are required or “voluntold” to be trained and held to the same standard, creating an “all systems go” culture in which everyone experiences the new learning. In the other camp, the belief is that training and learning MI should be voluntary.
