How LEADERS use their COACH for REFLECTION & REFLECTIVE LEARNING!!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-gvmjd-d891cf

Reflection ….  is a way of learning from the events within our own lives.   You see, unless we learn from what happens in our life through the process of reflection, we’re just repeating the year one of our work experience into 15 or 20 or whatever.    It’s only if each day, month, year is filled with gaining new insights and understanding, then only, the number of years of experience have value. Else, it’s just a number. 

So, Reflection or Critical reflection (I’m using the terms synonymously today) allows You – the leader and your executive coach – to learn together through a conversation….

Real examples from our practice are shared in this episode to show you how this actually works… This is a must listen for any manager or senior leader!!

SELF CARE!! A critical skill for success as COACHES and LEADERS!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ra867-d743f3

One of the most satisfying aspects of being a coach is the opportunity to contribute in the success of our client’s achieving the goals that they set for themselves; It is certainly a privilege to be part of their life and journey.

And when I use the term coaches I include executive coaches, life coaches, and leaders or managers as internal coaches.

Now, just imagine that we’ve helped one client through his or her difficult phase, and then another client, and as a coach we do this day after day, month after month, year after year.

In addition to this, we also have to manage the reality of our own life with its ups and downs. As humans we too struggle with managing family, schedules, difficult relationships, stressful life situations…You get the picture?

Not only are we dealing with our own life and its associated challenges, but we’re continually receiving the negative energy from our clients.

We are setting ourselves up for compassion fatigue.

So what is compassion fatigue?  And, how can it impact you as a Coach or a Leader?  And, what do you need to do about it??    This episode is critical for your success as a COACH and as a LEADER…

When all your client wants is to be ‘HAPPY’!! What a COACH needs to know about being happy!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-5qphz-d6ee6e

As coaches, we work with many clients who come to us with the agenda that they just want to be ‘happy’!!   I’ve had my client say to me “All I want is to be happy!!  Is that a very big expectation to have?  Why can’t I just be happy?  Everyone else around me is happy…

Now this seems to be a simple thing that we as coaches can do to support our client.. to be happy..

But, this can be deceptive because it’s like sticking a band-aid on a wound that is infected from within… The appearance is one of action and healing, but there’s a lot of pus inside. So, when a client comes to you with ‘wanting to be happy’, know that there’s something deeper at play here….
