Coaching Values : How do you know what your values are?

Coaching Values : How do you know what your values are? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

‘How do I know what my values are?’ As my client asked this question there was a note of desperation in his voice. ‘I mean I used to think that passion was one of my values but is it really? Do values change over time? What happens if my values conflict with each other?’ he continued. These were questions I had not heard in my coaching for some time and I was thrown back to a valuable exercise I had learnt in the early days of my coach training thirteen years ago.

Why It’s Important To Embrace Failure

Why It’s Important To Embrace Failure | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Once you’ve embraced failure, you no longer fear it. I am not sure where I heard this adage but it’s stuck with me for quite some time.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”

For Better Decision Making, Look at Facts — Not Data

For Better Decision Making, Look at Facts — Not Data | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Managers today similarly crave facts. The potential positives of working from objective facts are enticing. It’s expected that improved performance follows from basing decisions on facts, whether in traditionally heuristics-based industries such as healthcare or in causally imprecise contexts such as business strategy. But our world is awash in data, and data is not the same thing as facts. Facts are much harder to come by than data. While data seems to promise objectivity, instead it requires analysis — which is replete with subjective interpretation. Assuredly, having data is a necessary step toward making objective decisions. Yet the objectivity of data is a myth. Modern analytical methods afford creative and flexible uses of data that can support multiple perspectives and competing analyses about the same data sets.
