The field of coaching is like an iceberg. There’s the part we see, the day-to-day practices and methods that we as coaches use every day. But under the surface of those practices, there’s a connected, hidden world.
When employees show up to work, do the minimum, assume no responsibility and then collect their paycheck it’s a waste for the individual and for the organization. In order to fully capitalize on the talents and abilities of people, you need to invest in them and find ways to make them happy.
Learn what matters most to them, what they enjoy doing, and what frustrates them from reaching their full potential.
It’s fashionable to be mentored and to be coached at the moment, and with good reason. Everything in business is achieved through people and the more you can do to improve performance, the faster you can remove inefficiency and make progress.
As a manager in the public sector, I was immediately given ten days of training. In the practical management of resources and people, training provides a solid grounding in the tools and best practice techniques of management.

In this rush for optimal performance and strategy execution, it is easy to lose sight of the important stuff and to know where to focus our efforts. If we haste too much and are constantly in a rush, mistakes are made and long-term opportunities lost. In the middle of stressful situations, we tend to forget that we can actually increase our speed dramatically if we first slow down a bit.
The power of conscious vulnerability is a popular topic in personal development. Many people don’t realize it’s also an effective business-building strategy. Are you allowing yourself to be vulnerable in your role as a coach and entrepreneur? If not, you are missing an opportunity to access a powerful business-building tool.
We often think that if we had more choices, it would be easier to change our lives. In fact, we do have plenty of choices, but we don’t change. What we really need in our lives to make a positive change are fewer choices.
Admit Your Mistakes And Accept The Consequences We all make mistakes, but we don’t all own up to them. We may even try to hide them. Often we try to avoid the consequences. But admitting our mistakes and accepting the consequences will lead us to our greater self. I’m not perfect and neither are you....
What makes a strong coach? The list is long, and the ability to help a client remain focused on her movement forward is high on the list.
