Why Hiring a Business Coach is TOTALLY Worth the Money

Why Hiring a Business Coach is TOTALLY Worth the Money | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
I recently started doing business coaching with one of my personal heroes, Pamela Slim. I used to read Pam's blog, Escape from Cubicle Nation, back in 2009 when I was trying to start freelancing and was stuck in a cubicle all day and wasn't sure how to take the leap from the corporate world to solo-preneurship. I didn't have any local role models; I didn't know anyone in my own city who did what I wanted to do for a living. So I lived vicariously through Internet heroes like Pamela Slim, who showed me the possibilities of a magical world of people on the Internet, working from home on their own terms while wearing pajamas, and making a good living at it. That's all I wanted, early on - I just wanted to work from home and be with my family. I had modest goals and simple needs. Over the years, I've gone … Continue reading →

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work

Without Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness Doesn’t Work | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

We believe that by focusing on mindfulness-as-corporate-fad, leaders run the risk of missing other opportunities to develop their critical emotional skills. Instead, executives would be better served by deliberately assessing and improving their full range of emotional intelligence capabilities. Some of that work may well involve mindfulness training and practice, but it can also include formal EQ assessment and coaching. Other tools and approaches include role-playing, modeling other leaders you admire, and rehearsing in your mind how you might handle emotional situations differently. By understanding that the mechanism behind mindfulness is the improvement of broader emotional intelligence competencies, leaders can more intentionally work on all of the areas that will have the strongest impact on their leadership.

How to Rediscover Your Inspiration at Work

How to Rediscover Your Inspiration at Work | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Inspiration can be frustratingly fleeting and difficult to recover when lost. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a job you love, it’s common to go through lengthy periods where you need to dig deep to feel excited about your work. 


Psychologists Todd Thrash and Andrew Elliot have been studying inspiration for decades. They’ve identified three elements that occur when we’re inspired: we see new possibilities, we’re receptive to an outside influence, and we feel energized and motivated. Fortunately, inspiration is not a static state of mind but a process that we can cultivate. While we can’t force ourselves to be inspired, we can create an environment that’s conducive to inspiration. Here’s what I’ve seen work for my clients.

Comfort Zones: Are Your Clients Too Comfortable, Or Not Comfortable Enough? 

Comfort Zones: Are Your Clients Too Comfortable, Or Not Comfortable Enough?  | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
A big part of our work as coaches is to stretch our clients out of their comfort zones, away from their usual thought patterns and activities. So, a good exercise to do early on with clients is to explore where they sit in their comfort zone. I do this by asking my clients to show me where they are on their “Comfort Continuum.”

Coaching is more than asking questions – Aspire-CS | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Asking, not telling, is an admirable way to lead others, and is an important skill for coaching. Yet as someone who teaches leaders to coach others, just asking questions isn’t enough to really coach people. You want them to set a goal and take ownership of their actions and results; simply asking questions isn’t enough for that. What else is there? Start here:

How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed

How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded -- the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."

Younger and Older Executives Need Different Things from Coaching

Younger and Older Executives Need Different Things from Coaching | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
The former tend to want rules; the latter, insights.
Ariana Amorim's insight:
A research by Lois Tamirand Laura Finfer explored the relationship between the age of an executive and the coaching process or coaching outcomes. Their goal was to identify how executives in their thirties might differ from older executives when they receive the specialized attention of executive coaching.
They analyzed 72 executive-coaching engagements to evaluate the relationship of age to 4 variables: Responsiveness, Self-reflection, Nondefensiveness, and Degree of Change. 
Results indicate that the age group 30 to 39 was significantly lower on Self-reflection and Degree of Change compared with executives in the 40 to 49 and 50 to 59 age groups. In light of these findings, they recommend two approaches for those who manage, mentor, or coach younger executives to help them reach their full potential.
