Welcome to The Leadership Coach 2019. This is where we meet to exchange ideas on what makes leadership at all levels in an organisation really work.
Since this is a BLOG, my Guest Authors and I post articles and you comment or ask questions. That way we all learn something and make a daily progress on that big leadership transition journey.
Does that sound worthwhile? Does it seem like something you would like to be part of? Good news. To get behind this home page and to really get involved just sign up today. It’s FREE to subscribe. There’s lots going on inside. See you soon.
Being Curious is one of my Quick Coaching Tools. They are exactly what
the title suggests. Short snippets of coaching tips, tools and ideas for you to
use on a just-in-time basis. Use them as an update and to refresh your coaching
practice and professionalism. You could call it coaching in a hurry!
One of the greatest things about working in learning is the boundless
curiosity of those around you; unfortunately it can also be one of the worst
things about our profession too. We are, far too often, enamoured with the
latest shiny thing and, as such, open to the accusation that we’re “fluffy”
rather than commercial.
Yet our role in business is simple: to make it better. Our
job is to improve the quality of our people and make the organisation better at
what it does. As Sergei would say “simples”…
I coached someone today who has a personally very important
speech to deliver and wanted to get it as right as possible.
As I listened to him speak I was struck by the demonstration of leadership that he was embodying in both what he said and how he said it. For me, it also was a brilliant example of how to solve the strategy/execution conundrum that is the source of so much leadership scholarship.
