Listening Skills for Coaches

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 09:28:13 -0500

Listening is probably the first coaching skill that any prospective coach or manager learns, and yet it is often the one that is least used, even by competent coaches, as it becomes buried under an avalanche of more sophisticated tools and techniques. The reason for this is perhaps that most of us like to do rather than observe; from the time we are small children playing party games, we want it to be 'our turn'. Using the coaching techniques of asking questions, repeating words back or even suggesting our own solutions, is sometimes easier than concentrating hard on what another person has to say, without any interruption. The power of giving someone 'a good listening to' cannot be underestimated. In fact, many people will coach themselves more effectively when allowed to talk unhindered.

5 Competencies of Agile Leadership

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 13:27:27 -0500

True experts and so-called experts alike have written volumes about what separates great leaders from mediocre ones. In my experience working with some of the most successful global companies, I've discovered it really comes down to agility, or how well a leader is able to balance many choices and challenges simultaneously. Agile flexible leadership is the ability to keep a company running smoothly by successfully navigating efficient and reliable processes, people, and innovation.
