Coaching to Shift Corporate Consciousness ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Imagine if we could encourage our clients and their organizations to invest in evolving their consciousness?

To disrupt their habitual short term “stimulus-response” ways of operating in order to seriously connect with and redefine what value really means in the eyes of customers and potential users?

To find new ways of connecting people in organizations with their products or services that could really make their lives better, connect them to a broader community and to something bigger than themselves?

Wouldn’t the world be a better place for it?

How Teams can Profit from Band Experiences ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
How can teams and their leaders profit from music?

How can bands inspire their audience?

How can rhythm, sound and atmosphere play into success?

What remains after the band performance on the way home for the listeners?

I spend Thursday evenings at the modern Jazz school in Munich among others to find out the secrets behind those questions, to explore what is hidden behind rhythm and to examine what can be used and transferred to teams in the business world.
I want to introduce five concrete exercises from the band workshop that can be used by leaders and teams during daily business routines to raise customer’s enthusiasm.

People Won’t Grow If You Think They Can’t Change

People Won’t Grow If You Think They Can’t Change | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked hard to improve a valuable skill and made real progress, only to have your development go unnoticed by the people who told you that you needed to improve? Perhaps this led you to look for a new job. Or maybe you’re a manager who’s been disappointed by poor performance and concluded that your low-performing employees are simply over-entitled? So you gave up on trying to help them improve and vented your frustration with colleagues behind closed doors.

Both of these commonplace experiences point to problems caused by a fixed mindset, in which we find it hard to believe that people can change. In the first scenario, an employee is judged as having low potential—and this assessment blinds leaders to the progress he’s made. In the second, the manager’s conviction that her employees will never change makes her less likely to engage in leadership behaviors that support development. The bottom line in both cases is that employees are less likely to reach their potential.

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, April 24, 10:32 PM
Don't be blocked by your past experiences or other peoples' opinions or prejudices. You have the team and its your role to enable them. Give the person a target and the means, and organize the support to get there. With a real chance to make a difference, contribute to the common project goals and improve their skills they may very well succeed and surprise you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 2:32 PM
Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

Give it Up (Greater Good in Action)

Give it Up (Greater Good in Action) | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

A trick to bring yourself lasting happiness.


Research suggests that one of the biggest challenges to lasting happiness is our great capacity for adaptation: We tend to get used to the things that bring us pleasure in life, and before long, their positive effects wear off. We no longer enjoy them in the way we once did. However, research has identified a way to sustain these little pleasures over time: by temporarily giving them up. That can lead us to enjoy and savor that activity more once we resume it—and the ability to savor the small pleasures in life is a key to happiness. This practice guides you through the process of abstaining from a pleasurable activity for a week as a way to heighten your appreciation of it. Over time, the goal is not only to derive more pleasure from this activity but to recognize how we take lots of pleasures for granted and to try to savor them more.

7 Leadership Lessons From the Coach Who Mentored Steve Jobs, Eric Schmidt, and Jeff Bezos

7 Leadership Lessons From the Coach Who Mentored Steve Jobs, Eric Schmidt, and Jeff Bezos | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

And then there was Bill Campbell, who died of cancer on Monday at 75. He was one of the most influential figures in Silicon Valley, yet was outside the norm in just about every way. Even though he was CEO of Intuit and was chairman of its board until his death, "Coach," as everyone called him, could not write a line of code. He grew up in the Rust Belt of Pennsylvania and attended Columbia only because his father knew the football coach there and he wanted to play. He got a degree in education and headed into a career as a college football coach. But somewhere along the way he took a left turn and wound up at Apple (where, among other things, he kept the company from chickening out and canceling its famous "1984" Super Bowl ad).

 

His death is a sad, sad loss. But we can all still benefit from his wisdom.

1. Care about people more than anything

Most Silicon Valley titans are familiar figures. They make commencement speeches that rack up millions of views on YouTube, get profiled by business websites such as this one, and have irreverent movies made about their lives.
