    coaching blog - coaching skills for managers continued...
    I thought I would continue with some blogs on coaching for managers. If anything it will help you consider/reflect on what you do compared to what you think you do. Where could you change? Coaching sessions need to be valued; they need to be prepared for and not just ad hoc. There has to be time given to prepare and...
  2. coaching blog - how clever you need to be with questioning

    coaching blog - how clever you need to be with questioning
    What do you do when a coachee is sitting in front of you with their view on the world where you may see a different view in the way they are talking. How do you question this? Should you drive the direction? Questioning is key to a good coaching session; how do you guide and get the coachee to think...

    coaching blog - those words “hurry up”
    When my mum used the words “Hurry up” to me, then the words “Get ready for school hurry up hurry up” Little did she know what patterns this would set up in me. Hurry up is just one of the five Kahler drivers but I relate very well to this one as I see it in everything that I do...

    coaching blog - are you coachable?
    I recently had a bit of a lightbulb moment when I heard someone say that they ask their people if they are coachable? I noticed in myself that I stopped for a second to think about what I had just heard. I was amazed that someone would even ask their people if they thought they were coachable? And get them...
  5. coaching blog - when was the last time you reflected on your role at work?

    coaching blog - when was the last time you reflected on your role at work?
    A fantastic question for everyone to think about. When was the last time you reflected on your working day? If you are brutally honest with yourself, I suspect not very often. I do hear the word  ‘rarely’ a lot when I am coaching, the most common word I hear from coachees when I ask this question. Why is this? Are we...
  6. coaching blog - shift that paradigm

    coaching blog - shift that paradigm
    How often have you reflected on your way of looking at the world?  When you change paradigms, you are changing how you think about something. Have you ever reflected in how you view the world and how often someone changes your view of the world? Or maybe not? If not, why? Are you so judgemental in your decisions you choose...

    coaching blog - get comfortable with being uncomfortable
    If you want to make progress or significant changes in life, then get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I feel this is linked with stepping out of your comfort zone because being uncomfortable is good for you; it can help you develop in life. My background taught me that it was important to be slightly nervous before controlling aircraft, it is the...
  8. coaching blog - are you still actively moving forward with your resolutions?

    coaching blog - are you still actively moving forward with your resolutions?
    Four weeks on from the New Year, how many of you are sticking with the changes you have decided to do.  If so how have you done it? Have you been making notes, maybe reviewing for 5 mins at the end of the day and then have you been looking at those changes at the end of the week? Has this...
  9. coaching blog - why managers need coaching skills

    coaching blog - why managers need coaching skills
    I felt I wanted to write a blog on why it is essential that managers need coaching skills to encourage their staff.  First of all, I continuously hear managers tell me how they coach their staff and then witness quite the opposite. The problem is people don’t fully understand what coaching skills are.  Furthermore, they don't understand the boundaries between coaching...
  10. coaching blog - what would make a huge difference in your life if you went to work on it

    coaching blog - what would make a huge difference in your life if you went to work on it
    Have you ever thought to yourself what do I want to change, really change, then actually address it? The biggest failure with a lot of people is holding yourself back, this then means never really working in an area you want to change, just accepting things as they are. Sometimes little changes make significant progress over time rather than one...
