    2. Relate these issues to the impact on the person, the team, the department, the company and the client.
  3. Name the Behavior: Looking and Listening
    1. Define how behaviors are demonstrated using a simple process of SEE– HEAR–SAY.
    2. What did you see them do? (Visual Behavior)
    3. What did you hear? (The tone of voice)
    4. What did they say? (Language -­‐ choice of words).

  4. Coaching Language – Target the Conversation You Want to Have
    1. Follow a NDC format:
      1. Name the behavior – specific description of see-­‐hear-­‐say
      2. Describe the impact – what was the reaction/response/consequence
      3. Coach the change – ask first, then tell how they could change it
    2. This makes it a very direct exchange that is easily employed and coached.
    3. Clearly articulate the Impact of the behavior needing to be coached.
    4. What was the result of this person’s actions on them; the other person; the team; the company values and ultimately the client.
