Recently, I was conducting a workshop and one of my participants was an ex-bartender. She never hesitated to participate or offer her thoughts or converse with people or dare I say, role play. She's quick on her feet and really listens well during the workshop. I asked her where those skill sets came from. She said, I bartended for 15 years. As I thought about her response, I thought what a wonderful experience to be able to wa...

You often hear the concept that feedback is a gift, and it truly is yet we cannot use that approach as some reactive way to facilitate a positive relationship with feedback when so often it is perceived as negative. A positive cadence of feedback structured by the recipient is the secret sauce. There is such a simple concept called WIIFT, what is in it for them.

Recently I was teaching this concept to a bunch of individual contribut...

I think we have it wrong when it comes to developing leaders within our organizations. If leaders make up let's say 15% of the organization and we have 85% of the organization who needs to receive that leadership we need to cultivate the mindset and the reception of that 85% so the 15% can be heard and accepted. 

 

People go through high school and college never attending classes on how to seek and accept feedback thoughtfully an...

The triangle of coaching is a very simple concept yet there are some unique attributes of each stage we encourage organizations to adopt. One of the most fundamental mistakes I think organizations make is we spend so much money on a top-down approach specifically teaching leaders how to lead their employees. When you think about a traditional organization of let's say 100 or 1000 people typically about 80% of the people are emp...

Feedback is a very tough subject for people. It is our contention here at Progress Coaching people dismiss or accept feedback based on their agreement germane to the feedback. What most people don't understand is feedback is not a literal thing yet it is also morphed in perception. When somebody provides an employee feedback such as you are coming off negative and the employees first responses no I'm not. They are taking it...

There are so many views on feedback and how people should perceive feedback. I saw a post that created different viewpoints from feedback as a gift to other viewpoints where people felt feedback was not a gift. I think the one thing that we often miss when it comes to feedback is that feedback is a choice to provide, and it is also a choice to accept.

 

First, let us talk about the value of providing feedback. I go back over 38 years...

    If you or your co-workers or employees are tiered and fatigued doing nothing to counter those things will results in continuous fatigue. If some is tired going up a flight of stairs we typically say lets stop and rest concerned for the person. In reality the person needs to workout more so those stairs are not as difficult. We have to create counter measures to fatigue!

    Many leaders continue to struggle with the thought of having coaching or even conversations virtually. The challenge is we must change our mindset their coaching is not something that is geographic quite frankly coaching virtually at times can have tremendous advantages. Virtual work is NOT the cause of fatigue, rather how we handle working virtually is our opportunity to fight fatigue.

    I was speaking with one of our clients that we...

    Magnetic Coaching: Part One

     

    When you think about the effects of a magnet, it really has two effects. It either pulls things in or it repels them or pushes them away. Aren't people the same way? Think about a person that you met, that you were introduced to by a friend. Didn't you have an immediate impression of like, or dislike of that person? Now let us add some further context with a little bit of humor. Would it not be f...
