Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes | Sports Ethics Wooten-J | Scoop.it
By Douglas Riddle There are countless executive coaches I would never hire for myself, no matter how wise, insightful, dynamic or experienced. Admittedly, I’m a hard guy to please, so what I require might not be a good guide for others.

John Michel's curator insight, April 8, 2013 8:25 PM

As you may have noticed, there’s been an explosion of information in recent years on neuroscience and how the brain handles change – and it’s fueling an interest in mindfulness. If you are a coach or are searching for one to boost your performance, remember this rule: mindful coaching is better coaching. And mindfulness practices have shown benefits for clients in health, decision-making and leadership.

Stephen Basden's comment, September 12, 2013 8:41 PM
I learned how coaching isn't just a sports term. This is a term used in the job setting daily and a good coach isn't only necessary for a good sports team but also a good business.
The characteristics that the author gave were very interesting. An open mind, non-reactivity, and permissive attention are all necessities for a good coach.
I selected this article because I really want to know what it takes to be the best coach I can be. I am always open to new pieces of literature that can help improve my coaching abilities.
This information will help me reach my dream goal of being a professional basketball coach. Knowing the variety of characteristics that it takes to be a good successful coach will be very helpful as I begin my journey of my coaching career.
Blair Kettle's curator insight, October 15, 2013 5:48 PM

Expanding on the growing neuroscience evidence that mindfulness can aid in the beneficial reshaping of the mind Douglas Riddle argues that a new type of executive coach is needed.

 

“The coaches who expand my mind, emotions and performance come to the coaching relationship from a place of inner calm. They have quiet minds. They are not beguiled by fancy techniques or elegant coaching models. They are midwives for the narrow, messy emergence into a larger world – and they rely on habits of mindfulness to accomplish that.”

 

For those unfamiliar with mindfulness, Dr. John Kabat-Zinn, Professor Emeritus of Medicine at University of Massachusetts Medical School, has developed Mindfulness Meditation into a scientifically and medically accepted approach to stress reduction that has gained wide acceptance. But the idea that mindfulness techniques can help for other practical purposes is gaining ground. Old habits don’t have to die hard after all.

 

Dr. Norman Doidge, a Canadian Psychiatrist, does an excellent job at explaining the scientific understanding of brain plasticity in his book The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science.

The Power of Combining Coaching with a Framework for Teaching

The Power of Combining Coaching with a Framework for Teaching | Sports Ethics Wooten-J | Scoop.it

Like many of us committed to public education, I'm constantly searching for what's working and what can be replicated. This year I've discovered two essential ingredients for any successful school system to be effective. Think of these ingredients as the yeast and flour of any kind of bread -- obvious and essential -- and they must be used in combination with each other. I'll name these two staples as "The Destination" and "The Road Map."
