Episode 14: Coaching is About Investing in Relationships

In this week’s episode of the Working with SMEs podcast, we talk about the importance of supporting a training program with coaching and mentoring. Co-host Nathan Eckel talks about the investment of the years of relational equity that go into a strong coaching relationship.

“The caliber of the benefit comes out of the caliber of the relationship,” Nathan says.

One of the best ways to leverage your training dollars is to put a coaching or mentoring program in place to support your efforts with personal relationships. The time and cost to the company requires that the people who are mentors are incentivized to make sure those relationships are supported.

And if you invest the 14 minutes to listen, you will find out that we manage to work in a mention of The Jetsons and Spacely Sprockets.
