Hey Coaches, please don’t over complicate coaching!

  Coaching is a wonderful way of supporting others. It’s meant to be an impactful and rewarding experience. I’ve seen many articles, chapters and papers giving their own specific descriptions of what coaching is. There often seems to be a tendency to over explain or over complicate, especially on process and method rather than impact. … Continue reading

Leaders: Are you getting the most from Social Media?

My Passle post explores the question of if and how leaders are reviewing what they are doing (or could be doing) on social media. Continue reading

For the curious observer

The sign isn’t there today. However, the coffee, the tea, the sugar, the fresh milk, the cups and the urn of boiling water are. They all sit neatly on a trolley. It’s the same most Saturdays.

How are you social as a leader… on Social Media?

I’m really interested in how leaders on social media and especially Twitter “show up”.

In my last post, I shared my thinking on how you show up is … Continue reading

A Discouraged Man

A man down on earth needs our help. Splendid! Is he sick? No. Worse. He’s discouraged. Even if you’re not familiar with “It’s a Wonderful Life” that short dialogue is so evocative. It speaks to something deeply relevant in our lives – the need for others to lift us up when we need it the most, even … Continue reading
