    Rachel, your comment suggest you watched it more than once. How come, are you a glutton for punishment?!

    Glad you enjoy it anyway 🙂 Check out our others in similar vein.

    Hello Michael. Great video. So funny! You are the new John Cleese. I will use it in some of my courses with your permission. Thank you!

    Thanks Farnoosh. How do you know I was acting?! There are plenty more where that one came from – check out my channel for another version where Spencer coaches me (and is way nastier!). We are planning to do How NOT to Present next, and How NOT to be Interviewed. Watch this space!

    Brilliant Michael. You are not just a great coach and workshop leader. You are also an actor (you’ve been holding back on us ;))! Well-done. Very well-done! Please, more of these videos….!

    just viewed your brilliant video on “how not to do a coaching session”.

    Could I use it for a “not for profit” training program on coaching.

    Please could you also send me a copy of the 20 errors,would be very useful for discussion.

    Any other suggestion or material which would add value to the program (2 days) would be most welcome.

    Thanks and regards

    Hello Mark,
    First of all, congratulations on your “worst practice” video on coaching… I loved the way you managed never to allow the “shy coachee” to say anything! I will be facilitating a course next week on coaching and I would like your permission to use your video..Also, could you please send me the “20 what not to do” you mentioned (I would like to see how it compares to my list…)
    Best regards, Maria Eiisa Mueller

    Hi – As a trainer I would also like to use this video as a ‘What not to do” video. You say there are at least 20 errors or more. I wrote a list but wonder if you could share your 20 ‘things not to do’ with us to make it a more effective learning tool. Appreciate your help – I really enjoyed it and will use it next week – 23 / 24 Oct 2012. Sue

    Dear Mikebrown007,

    I would like to use your video for a presentation I am deliverying for my company on “grow yourself”. This film is very good and hope you could allow me to use that for my team. We have around 60 people who will be at the presentation.

    Many thanks for your consideration and help.

    thanks for the comment, Melodie. Yes, painful to watch, and painful to film! we improvise these things entirely, so it felt quite real. I did not know I could be such a !@#$%^!!!

    Excellent example of what *not* to do, and how *not* to do it!

    Painful to watch (in a good way!).

    Scary because it’s very easy to relate to….who hasn’t had a performance review like this?
    Ugh!

    Thanks for sharing and getting us to see what it should *not* be like!
