The Use of Incentives and Rewards for Coachees
Tito Rafael Hidalgo Barcia, Strategy Consultant, Ecuador, Member
I understand and agree that employees must not get a reward for professional activities we have been hired for in the first place.
I am sure you will agree that we humans are complicated from the core, and yes, we do need and like incentives and/or rewards but remember, as I said before: we humans are complicated, so if we get some extra reward for our effort, most probably we expect the same or more and more every time.
My experience is that we must be careful in selecting the type of incentive we give to our coachee(s). So I agree with Greg Johson, a good start would be the benefit of Dialogue and/or guiding the coachee to reward themselves for such achievement. This is my humble opinion.
