Coaching The Uncoachable? | Young Upstarts

Coaching The Uncoachable? | Young Upstarts | Coaching | Scoop.it
Politics aside, recent behavior by a certain inhabitant of the White House got me thinking about the topic of coaching the uncoachable: the know-it-all, the egomaniac and the alpha male or female. We’ve all worked for, or with, individuals like this.

I decided to do some research on this topic and made the following request to my LinkedIn International Coach Federation industry group. “I’m looking for tips on coaching the un-coachable, the egomaniac, or know-it-all. All comments welcome.”

I received over 190 responses, so I suspect I hit a nerve.

3 Ways Knowing Your Personality Type Can Help You With Your Career

3 Ways Knowing Your Personality Type Can Help You With Your Career | Coaching | Scoop.it

I’m accustomed to handling clients who are at a crossroads in their lives and are looking for change—after all, I’m a career coach. So this usually involves guiding clients through some pretty heavy soul-searching to help them find the sort of truly fulfilling work that we all deserve.

This also means many of my clients are in an indecisive state at the outset—that’s to be expected. But I don’t think I’ve had a more indecisive client than Kevin. When I asked Kevin what sort of career he truly wanted to pursue, he blanked. I asked him what he enjoys doing and what he’s really good at, and he could never seem to articulate a direct answer.

From Balance to Integration, the Role of the Coach

From Balance to Integration, the Role of the Coach | Coaching | Scoop.it

If the balance between private and professional life is no longer of interest to us, what then is the contemporary approach we should consider? As much as possible, life and work should complement each other, should be sparked by the same passion, by the same values. Life and work should be congruous. The key is not a tactic then but a holistic vision. The solution is not, then, knowing how to prioritize but how to combine pleasure with raison d’être, essence and activity, fulfillment and professional endeavor. In this way, development at work, at home, in the midst of one’s community and within one’s most intimate self becomes accessible and lasting. (...) What is the role of a coach in this context?

Learning new skills can be awkward and uncomfortable. Think back to the first time you interviewed for a job or spoke in front of a group. It’s possible you made some mistakes, but in the long run you grew and developed.

And if you were lucky enough to have someone supporting and partnering with you—someone coaching you through the experience—chances are that support really helped.

In today’s workplace, business leaders are encouraged to coach their direct reports. To do this, leaders must develop a coaching mindset—a mindset that looks for the potential in others.  Here are four ways to get started.

What Obama’s last year in office teaches us about resilience

What Obama’s last year in office teaches us about resilience | Coaching | Scoop.it
Obama’s shortcomings as president inevitably get the most news coverage. We’re in a business, after all, that will never post the headline “Plane lands safely.” But in this period of national difficulty, it’s good to remember not just Obama’s setbacks but also the side of him that demonstrates what resilience looks like. These moments remind us of America’s exceptional character, even in its current, ugly paralysis.

How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed

How to stay calm when you know you'll be stressed | Coaching | Scoop.it
You're not at your best when you're stressed. In fact, your brain has evolved over millennia to release cortisol in stressful situations, inhibiting rational, logical thinking but potentially helping you survive, say, being attacked by a lion. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin thinks there's a way to avoid making critical mistakes in stressful situations, when your thinking becomes clouded -- the pre-mortem. "We all are going to fail now and then," he says. "The idea is to think ahead to what those failures might be."

Emerging World's curator insight, November 17, 2015 2:16 AM

Research has shown that developing a growth mindset is beneficial in a variety of contexts, from education to the workplace to interpersonal relationships to sports to health. It leads people to take on challenges they can learn from, to find more effective ways to improve, to persevere in the face of setbacks, and to make greater progress, all of which we need to further cultivate in education.
