Instructive words on ICF competencies - on the track of a forum... | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
The other day “en jetant un coup d”oeil” into one of my favorite forum-generating LinkedIn group, I’ve found a forum topic (started by Marianna Lead, MCC (Master Certified Coach), PhD, Provider of ICF-Approved Coach Training & Mentoring @ Goal Imagery Institute, ICF Credentialing…
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

For our everyday work but also for getting the ICF certificate about our coach competencies, one of the sources we can turn to are the ICF coach competencies (http://www.coachfederation.org/icfcredentials/core-competencies/ ; ). I have found an interesting "addendum" to this in a comment "buried" in a LinkedIn forum topic... I have found it so useful that I decided to share this excerpt from the forum.... hope you are finding it also useful....:-)))

Funny You Should Ask!

Funny You Should Ask! | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
From kids to kilos, do you carry the heaviest load? And I don't mean your body weight!
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

(One of the) story teller queen, Lisa Bloom is raising the question whether are we enough ready to ask for help, info, etc. when it's needed? It's an adage that men are not asking for traffic information, rather they make circles around the blocks because the sole act of asking might be regarded by themselves as a clear sign of weakness... is it really so? What if we are ready to ask when appropriate when there is somebody around us who is an expert of the thing we are just fighting with? And what about to be ready to help or answer for others' asking in a way that they should not feel that "Jesus I'd better not asked him..."? Might be the tow go hand in hand: capability of asking for help and helping in an encouraging way... start to explore these new endless opportunities...

Work-Life balance is dead. As it should be

Work-Life balance is dead. As it should be | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Work-life balance is dead. Strong statement? Yes. Given that for most of the last few decades we have been fighting for the elusive balance. 8 hours office. 9 to 5. Compartmentalized personal and
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, interesting & important point, though it's not so clear-cut... in every generation there are those for whom work and life is harmonious because they love what they do... also, it's true that earlier generations were more conceding if that was not the case ("No problem, I will find my fun after work...") and here are - already in the workplaces - new generations who want also fun in the work as well... it's very nice and a good direction but are we really sure that all will also find this? If not then a perhaps different life-balance issue might emerge... we are not on an ideal world, it's good (and as youngsters, it was so e.g. for the baby-boomers too, think about the late '60s and the early '70s) to have ideals and try to make them happen but it's not too bad to think about those who will not find - after lots of searching - fun&work together and still they must survive... so, I would still not bury completely the work-life balance but the reminder is very OK...:-)))

Stop Your Firm’s Brain Drain – Convincing Innovators to Choose an Established Firm Over a Startup

Stop Your Firm’s Brain Drain – Convincing Innovators to Choose an Established Firm Over a Startup | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

There is an innovator brain drain going on. The drain is away from larger established firms, which desperately need more innovators, and toward startup firms, which are successfully recruiting a disproportionately high percentage of these prized innovators.

 


Via Peter Verschuere
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Yeah, startup is in... while 90% of them are failure... but it's a fun during... so, balance... I pretty believe in the balance and the clearing function of the market (even it's more lacklustre now)... he really good startup ideas will win and those "widows and orphans" who just joined the train for joining will (?) find their way back to the corporation...

 

Of course, there is a deeper push-pull factor dynamics than simply the hoarding attitude... there is something irresistible to be pulled toward "to be on your own boss" and there is a strong push factor from the corporates through their internal obscure dynamism, the sort of "Herr K. factor" (The castle - Franz Kafka)...

Ethics Isn't "Out There": It's Us And Our Choices

Ethics Isn't "Out There": It's Us And Our Choices | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Much attention is paid to the tactics of ethics – the ethics codes, compliance plans and such. We can easily begin to think that ethics is something we can see and touch. Something finite. Something written in stone. Something outside of ourselves.

But that’s not where ethics lives.

Ethics is personal. It’s about us and our choices and our decisions and our behaviour... it's not something buried in the ethical codes or compliance plans...

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 21, 2014 8:21 PM

Ethics is what we bring to the table and conversations that result. We respond in responsible ways. I was discussing this today about being a teacher. Pressed for time, teachers sometimes forget who they are, what they contribute to conversations, and the importance of setting an ethical example.

Da Vinci, Polymaths and the Art-Science of Innovating the Future | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Renaissance thinkers combined art and science in novel ways; the boundaries between the disciplines more fluid than they are today. It was from such voluminous expertise that the ideal of The Renaissance Man arose: an individual with many creative gifts who cultivated a wide range of scholarly interests.

INFORMATION+ENERGY+PARTICLES+DNA+BODY+UNIVERSES = 1 (the fundamental equation of the Universe ..., and she is ... "FREE OF CHARGE", cause her name is OBSERVABLE, PERCEPTIVE, AND PERCEPTIBLE REALITY)


... DNA, human body+soul+mind, universes, Universe ..., are ALL BELONGING TO THE SAME INTERCONNECTED REALITY, "ONENESS" ..., everything else separating this truth in small parts ..., are only minds illusions ..., and partial conceptualisation containing errors ..., and/or misunderstandings, and false believes.


Physicists are knowing that fact perfectly ..., mathematicians also ..., since more than 50 years ...


This truth has been firstly hidden since 2000 years, secondly transformed, and then denatured (to reverse the essence of meaning ..., until meaningless), by all political groupware having "political power and financial interests to act like this" to ensure political controls against others human beings.


This was the first step of collusion going right away ..., to globalisation of corruption, this is why we are free to get back the right to make a civil break through ..., nobody could fight against a worldwide CIVIL AND PACIFICAL BREAK ...


The first corruption hidden by people ..., are themselves ..., by denying themselves human nature and divine existence.

Do We Need A Revolution In Management?

Do We Need A Revolution In Management? | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

“Do we need a revolution?” ask Clayton Christensen and Derek van Bever in the June 2014 Harvard Business Review (HBR). “The orthodoxies governing finance are so entrenched that we almost need a modern-day Martin Luther to articulate the need for change.”

 

When “the world’s most influential business thinker” calls for a revolution, maybe we should pay attention. The “revolution”, says the article, would have three parts. (1) “New ways to assess investments in innovation… (2) We should no longer husband capital. It is abundant and cheap… and (3) …new tools for managing the resources that are scarce and costly.”


One immediate question: is the needed revolution about acquiring new tools or new management mindsets? New tools applied with existing mindsets risk leading to more of the same. In fact, could applying new mindsets to the existing tools go a long way to the revolution that the HBR article is talking about?

Quite often, what passes as reform, including management and leadership, is simply shuffling deck chairs around. We need something that reconstructs management and leadership, rather than heaping the latest fad onto what is not working.
