4 Lifehacks From Ancient Philosophers That Will Make You Happier

4 Lifehacks From Ancient Philosophers That Will Make You Happier | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Science and ancient philosophers agree on a number of ways for boosting happiness and living a better life. Here's what you can learn from great thinkers.

 

1) “What’s The Worst That Could Happen?”

“Negative Visualization” is one of the main tools of Stoicism.
Really thinking about just how awful things can be often has the ironic effect of making you realize they’re not that bad.

 

2) “As If”
The Stoics valued tranquility and thought being angry was a waste of time. But what should you do when your blood boils?
Force a smile. Soften your voice. Seneca thought if you act calm, you will become calm.

 

3) Make It A Treat
We want everything and we want it yesterday.
The Stoics, on the other hand, used to deliberately walk around on cold days without a coat. Or skip meals to become hungry. Why?
Denying yourself something makes you appreciate the things you take for granted.

 

4) It’s Okay To Stumble
Does Stoicism seem hard? Don’t want to think about how awful things can be right now? Don’t want to give up your ice cream for a day?
They knew that too. What did Epictetus tell his students after he taught them these Stoic lifehacks?
He told them what to do when they screw up — because we all do.
Forgive yourself.

For our clients, working with a coach involves a commitment of time, money and energy – and for some it also takes a great deal of courage. A good client enrollment process should leave your client feeling they’ve made a wise choice hiring a coach and that YOU were the right choice.

So when your clients sign-up with you, how do you make your clients feel good about their decision? What do they have to show for it when they sign up? What’s your client enrollment process?

The Major Pitfalls For A New Coach ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Yes, the coaching journey is very exciting and tempting for new coaches on the block, but it’s also easy to be trapped by the old behaviors or beliefs coaches used to have as a human prior to becoming a coach (still a human, though). Knowing the pitfalls is a must-have for new coaches to start and remain successfully on the coaching career path.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

Avoid these common pitfalls:

Give advice

Talk too much

Inflexibility (tied to a script and not being flexible to the need of the coachee)

Undermine the potential of coachee

Fail to build trust

International Coach Federation: Time management for the coach

International Coach Federation: Time management for the coach | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

One of the key areas of concern that will often raise a question to existing coaches is that of time management.
I will cover this in a number of ways today that I hope you find useful and that you can start to apply to your own practice and client work.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

From the article: "I see that at times clients will want to share what is on their mind and want to off load and talk. This is useful but at times can also create a question mark for you as the coach. When do you start to coach them and bring them back on track?"

This is just one of the questions this article raises. A truly pertinent post.

"The ways and means by which we can assist the coaching process are many and various. Even though some of the approaches can be more effective than others, in this brief article, the aim is to introduce a simple 4-quadrant grid framework that can help considerably in every coaching discussion. Like all useful models or frameworks, the situational coaching style approach is not intended to be a panacea. We all know that coaching can be extremely complex and often involves a wide variety of factors that can make the coaching experience more or less successful. This approach is therefore just “one more tool in the toolbox”.

3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize - The Coaching Tools Company Blog

3 Types of Successes People Rarely Stop to Recognize  - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Here are 3 types of successes people rarely stop to recognize:

 

1) Concrete steps taken towards larger goals. 

 

2) Successes of PERSONAL value, but not necessarily recognized by others. 

 

3) Our failures AND mistakes. Overcoming failures and mistakes MUST be celebrated.  If we have failed – it is because we risked and it is only by risking that we make changes in our lives. Plus, when we reject our mistakes and failures we also reject a part of ourselves.

 

Suggestion: Set up a session to help your client celebrate their success – and honour themselves. And not only are you celebrating, you’re reframing success and failure, and building their self-esteem too!

Coaching Tools 101 - The GROW Model as the ULTIMATE Coaching Tool, Questions and Why it Always Works! | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

There are many, many different coaching models out there but I still haven’t found anything that beats the GROW model for simplicity, effectiveness and results. If you embrace the GROW model – your clients will love you and you’ll never lose track in a coaching session again.

So, you probably use the GROW model (or T-GROW) without even realizing it:

T – Topic (Session Topic)G – Goal (Session Goal)R – Reality (Where they are and what’s going on for them)O – Options (Ideas and brainstorming – what they COULD do to move forwards)W – Will Do (Their actions – what they WILL do to move forwards)

Free Self Determination Workbook

Self determination goes by many names in the mental health field…”client as expert”, “person centered”, “strength’s based”, and maybe least commonly as “solution focused”. However, the solution focused approach IS person centered, strengths based, and one of the main tenets is the client is the expert.

 

The resources presented in this article are from the University of Illinois’ Center on Mental Health Services Research and Policy.

Have you ever thought of yourself as a coach? Have you ever been in a relationship where you advised or encouraged someone? Are in a position to help others learn and grow stronger for the challenges of life and work? Many people are professional coaches - business coaches, executive coaches, life coaches, etc. Plus, a lot of "regular" people fit this description — managers, co-workers, mentors, consultants, trainers, parents, teachers, friends, family, athletic coaches, and counselors.  

Most of the posts on this blog have to do with behavior patterns I call PERSONAL STRENGTHS. In various posts, I've described more than 40 of them. Here are eight personal strengths I believe play the biggest role in making coaches strong for what they have to do...

Relationship and Marriage Advice | The Gottman Relationship Blog: The Workplace: The Delicate Art of Giving Feedback

Relationship and Marriage Advice | The Gottman Relationship Blog: The Workplace: The Delicate Art of Giving Feedback | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Today on The Gottman Relationship Blog, we would like to share an article referencing Dr. Gottman's research that was recently published in the Harvard Business Review. We feel that, given our current The Workplace blog series, it is imperative that you read it! Though Pozen’s intended audience is one of business managers, his advice is applicable to any employer or employee. After all, our bosses are not the only ones who provide us with feedback. Feedback is constantly being exchanged (directly, indirectly, verbally, nonverbally, officially, and casually) between everyone in the workplace.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

The article is: The Delicate Art of Giving Feedback by Robert C. Pozen

Harvard Business Review

 

"Dr. Gottman’s groundbreaking research with couples has allowed us at The Gottman Institute to apply his work to a much broader spectrum of human relationships. His findings can teach us a great deal about building and maintaining healthy connections with our families, friends, and even coworkers!
In the next three weeks, we will cover an area in which relationship dynamics can dictate your degree of professional and financial success, and even determine whether or not your career dreams are fulfilled. Without further ado, we bring you Dr. Gottman on The Workplace!"

The Manager as Idea Coach

The Manager as Idea Coach | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

The root of the word "manager" comes from the same root as the words "manipulate" or "maneuver", meaning to "adapt or change something to suit one's purpose". Although these words may carry a pejorative meaning for some of us, there is nothing inherently wrong with them. Indeed, into each life a little manipulation and maneuvering must fall. (...)

However, there is another kind of manipulation and maneuvering that is a problem - when managers use their position to bend subordinates to their will. While short-term gains may result, in the end the heart is taken out of people. Your staff may become good soldiers, but they will lose something far more important in the process - their ability to think for themselves. General George Patton said it best, "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."
