Rounding

krishna_arjunThis relates to the previous post I wrote about Performance Reviews. Here’s a way managers can get started on coaching their direct reports regularly as suggested by Kris Dunn. The practice is called rounding. I heard about it at the HCS Certification course I attended from a HR leader at a healthcare organization in Northern California who adapted this practice from nursing.

Rounding is a weekly 10 minute check-in meeting that a manager has with their direct report in which they ask the following 5 questions:

  1. Who should I recognize in our team?
  2. What’s working well?
  3. What can be improved?
  4. Do you have the tools, equipment and resources to do your job?
  5. How can I help you?

I thought it was a clever adaptation. I found the the length and format attractive. I think it would increase the likelihood of managers talking to their direct reports to get that dialogue started which is the basis of coaching.

Your thoughts?
