Featured interviews include-
#1 What I've learned about non-conformists?...
People may perceive this ‘species’ as rebellious, defiant, stubborn, contrary or fractious. On a personal note, holding that dissenting voice can often leave me feeling alone, different and harshly judged.
#2 What I’ve learned about the pressure to be perfect?…
Instead of turning out a well thought out piece of work, we are more likely to make mistakes, which in turn get criticized, creating more fear, shame, blame, feelings of inadequacy, less focus, more chance of mistakes and so the cycle repeats.
#3 What I've learned about Coach Matching?...
Is the current coach matching process a help or a hindrance?
I have always been struck by the way that coaching sponsors and coachees, frequently scan the profile of potential coaches; looking for someone who has had a similar industry experience, hoping to hire a coach that then understands their context, making them somehow more credible...
I think quite differently about this matter...
I am concerned that searching for a coach who has 'been there done that', may actually highlight a need for mentoring rather than coaching.
In addition, that coach may unconsciously be placed in the role of 'expert' and unless they are very self-aware and can manage their own responses, (which not all coaches are), they may be tempted to share their experiences or advise their client, instead of staying fully present, curious and objective. These qualities enable the coach to facilitate the client to find their own solutions; through asking powerful q's, that enable the coachee to do their best thinking, apply their freshest insights and make the necessary changes to maximise their success.
As a coach, coachee or coaching sponsor-What are your thoughts?
