Rehearsing different perspectives (in their shoes)

Problems. Whenever we have one and are perhaps feeling a little stuck when it comes to finding a solution, it occurs to me that it’s often because we only look at it through our own eyes. There is of course always another perspective. In fact, there can be several.

Acting as if…

If we want to be great at something, we learn to do it, right? As the nation’s favourite Meerkat, Aleksandr would say – ‘simples’. Or is it really that straight forward? What if our brain tells us otherwise and the all-consuming doubt starts to creep in? ‘I’m not sure I can do it’. ‘That’s not me’. ‘It’s too difficult’.

Learning patterns (of behaviour)

“If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got."  

It’s one of those quotes you may have heard at some time or another, perhaps as a piece of advice when you’ve been stuck in a quandary. Attributed to Albert Einstein, it does make sense and pretty much states the obvious. Or does it?

Conflict… useful or not?

Oh, yes it is …Oh, no it isn’t …

Well, it would be remiss of me not to allude to the season’s most anticipated lines … wouldn’t it? 

Oh, yes it would …Oh, no it wouldn’t …, etc!

A Top Time Management Tip

If you had a pound for every time you said to yourself, 'If only there were more hours in the day', would you be a millionaire?

I've met many people for whom time, time and time again is an ever present issue. Rather than accept that there are only 24hours in a day, the temptation is often to resist this all important fact and grow increasingly despairing about the amount of work to be done and the lack of time in which to do it.

However, as Carl Jung once said, 'What you resist persists.'

This may well be an opportune moment to step back, take stock and reflect on a new approach.

An approach to coaching questions

When we train as coaches, we learn various coaching models that, at the start of our coaching act as a useful guide for us to walk the change journey with our clients. As I reflect back on the early days of my coaching, over a decade ago, I notice that I was perhaps too rigid in my interpretation of how to employ those models and structures. What I pay attention to these days is my client, and only them, noticing not what they tell me, just how they do it.
