How to record coaching sessions shown by man with headset using a laptop

Nervous about recording your coaching sessions for certification? Worrying how you get consent from your clients, or what technology to use? Or perhaps you’re even wondering why bother? Read on and Kerryn will explain all…

Until you’ve listened to a recording of yourself coach, you can’t begin to imagine the learning that comes from just that process.

Mostly, listening to your own session recordings builds your own awareness around what you already know. Awareness in itself, as we know from coaching our clients, can be enough to create change. However, if you then get a mentor to listen to Read More…

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…

Group and Team Coaching shown by woman in front of table of people doing an exercise

Group and Team Coaching are two related sub-disciplines of the coaching profession. These modalities offer coaches an opportunity to expand their services and support to a wider cross-section of individuals. This article explores several ways coaches may wish to consider adding group and team coaching to their mix.

Many coaches today create their own group coaching programs for the public. When I started offering group coaching more than a decade ago, one of my first series of programs was the “Your Balanced Life”™ series. As a former global leader I was passionate at that time about work-life balance issues. What Read More…

Dr. Albrecht's 5 Types of Fears - What We're Really Afraid Of...

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?

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…
