There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong.  You might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t.  Sure the sun stops shining sometimes, and you may get a huge thunderstorm or two, but eventually the sun will come out to shine.

Are You a Micro or a Macro? - Business 2 Community

Are You a Micro or a Macro? - Business 2 Community | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

My wife and I have a love-hate relationship. We love each other dearly and agree on most of the big stuff: rules for child rearing; education is a must; you give your best effort every time; and you open your presents Christmas morning and not Christmas Eve (I have no idea where she is on the designated hitter, it just never comes up).

 

But when it comes to laundry, that’s where we part company.



David Hain's insight:

Micros and macros can get along – so long as they don’t try and do laundry together!

Coaching: It’s Not Master Mind

Coaching: It’s Not Master Mind | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Too often those starting out on their journey to develop coaching skills to add to their management and leadership repertoire, seem to be playing a game similar to Master Mind. They ask questions that are designed to eliminate possibilities or root causes.

David Hain's insight:

Ask better questions rather than trying always to find answers!

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, November 16, 2013 10:04 AM

That's important... coaching is to open up (or digging for)  more possiblities, alternatives than the opposite... and Voltaire also was right ("already the ancient Greeks" or oh, pardon, the ancient French know that...) - the original seems to be a little bit different but basically exactly the same: 

 

It is easier to judge the mind of a man by his questions rather his answers. – and the original in French: Il est encore plus facile de juger de l'esprit d'un homme par ses questions que par ses réponses....

I had a black dog, his name was depression

"At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery. 

In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the "black dog of depression"."
