Effective Group Coaching 101: The 5 Key Skills Any Group Coach Needs! | By Jennifer Britton

Group Coaching - 4 people sat down having a discussion

Group coaching is continuing to take root in many different forms these days. From group coaching processes that are part of a leadership development initiative, to public groups bringing together individuals with a common focus, group coaching is an "intimate conversation space".  In today's world group coaching provides an important space for conversation, dialogue and reflection for small groups of individuals. The synergistic experience of being part of a peer learning process is at the heart of the group coaching experience, which is grounded in the individual goals of each participant and, where applicable, the collective goals of the group.

We live in a society that rewards us for achievement, qualifications, status and success. Many people work themselves extremely hard to get there - ignoring what their bodies and minds are telling them.

Your Vision of the Future: Realize Just What IS Possible! | By Guest Author Ben Dooley

The-Future

I was watching a movie a couple weeks ago that took place in the future - you know with the flying cars and moving sidewalks and all that incredible technology. And I found it so amazing that as viewers we simply go along with it. We don't spend our time watching the movie speculating, "Wait a minute. How can they possibly do this?"

When we watch a Star Trek movie or TV show we don't try to figure out the technological process of development and discovery that leads to the invention of the "transporter" machine or "phasers". And anti-gravity? Forget Read More...

Do You Secretly Procrastinate? Plus How to Procrastinate Healthily (in 5 Easy Steps!)

deadline

Procrastination is not the "black or white" issue I had previously thought; it's not that we are either a "procrastinator" or a "doer" - we can be both. You see, I recently discovered (after 10 years of personal development and coaching) that I was a secret procrastinator. I say secret because I HAD NO IDEA I regularly procrastinated.

Instead I considered myself a "do-er", someone who can be relied upon to do what they say they will. In the last 10 years alone I've moved country, changed careers, built a successful business from scratch, moved again to a small island, built a Read More...

Here Are 13 Ways To Boost Your Coaching Relationships!

Coaching Relationships shown by happy man and woman shaking hands

The best coaching comes not from the coach with the most advanced coaching skills, but from the best coaching relationships. For a client to show who they really are - being vulnerable enough to trust you their hopes, fears and what they dream of - they must feel safe with you. They need to relate to you and trust you, they need to feel that you support them without judgement and see the best in them - not matter what.

What are the benefits of strong coaching relationships? Well, when you have strong coaching relationships, your clients will achieve Read More...

Types of Fears represented by a tarantula spider

Whilst some of our fears are basic survival and pain-avoidance, many fears - as we know - are literally in the mind (how many of you are creeped out by the picture of the spider?). And while there are lots of articles out there which list our fears and phobias, it's hard to find a good article that helps us chunk up those fears into useful categories. If we were to group fears together - to try and understand the TYPES of fears we have, what would that look like?

Well, recently I found that a favourite thinker of mine, Read More...

12 Leadership Qualities, Using Coaching to Develop Leadership, Tools to Help You!

animalMH900403330-sq

I've noticed an increase in the requests for Leadership Tools over the last 18 months or so. With a challenging economy for so many businesses, more transparency via social media and the internet (disgruntled customers and employees make their thoughts and experiences public!), and more and more reports that prove leadership qualities are good for the bottom line - organizations want leaders!

But what's interesting is that when I ask what leadership tools people are looking for, or what they want help with - I'm getting a big fat zero. Businesses want leaders, leaders want coaches, and coaches want tools Read More...
