Several people have asked me recently - how do you know you are coaching and not just having a conversation or giving someone advice?
So I thought I'd share this list of Coaching Indicators. Enjoy!
The Tuesday Reading for this week is “The Best Way for New Leaders to Build Trust,” as essay by Jim Dougherty. Dougherty is a veteran software CEO and entrepreneur and now is a senior lecturer at MIT’s Sloan School of Management. In the essay, he relates some of his experiences as CEO of Intralinks, an internet services company that provides secure web based electronic deal rooms.
Today’s Tuesday Reading, “6 Management Lessons from Visionary Women Leaders,” is from the pen of Lydia Dishman, a business journalist covering innovation, entrepreneurship and style, and appeared recently in FastCompany.
Peter Senge has written that After Action Reviews (AAR), the subject of today’s Tuesday Reading, are “one of the most successful organizational learning methods yet devised.”
Today’s Tuesday Reading is “Opening Gifts.” This essay’s author is Roger Schwarz, CEO of Roger Schwartz and Associates and it recently appeared in his blog.
Schwarz begins by noting that we receive a lot of intangible gifts from those we work with. They are often not always wrapped in lovely wrapping paper with beautiful bows. And, whether nicely presented of not, too often we dismiss them without a second thought or any curiosity.
"We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude."
- What are you not paying attention to and how can you start?
- What little things does your family do?
- What do the people that you work with do well?
- What would it be like without these people?
"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."
