It’s lonely being “the only”

 

How we define ourselves is shaped by our beliefs and values and ultimately drives what we think, say and do.  These internal narratives that stream through our minds are influenced by our experiences throughout our lifetime; the way we relate to the world around us. From the relationships we have, the choices we make as well as how others interact and engage, these powerful stories remain with us, every day.

Our world is more interconnected than ever before, and the importance of embracing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in the workplace – and in life – cannot be overstated. Immediately the teachings of Napoleon Hill, Zig Ziggler, and Tony Robbins come to mind, extending beyond success principles to embrace the significance of fostering a diverse and inclusive environment. In this reflection, we will explore each of the DEIB principles from a coaching perspective, and how they can drive individual and organizational growth.

The First Coaching Tip for 2023

Be Positive is Healthier.
Here is a little challenge from your coach. Make 2023 the year of positive health.
Take the P-Pill twice a day.

The P-Pill stimulates you to consciously, purposely even, seek to get the medicinal benefits of observing the positive in every moment you are in. Right now! and every now!

You already know positive thoughts change your body chemistry. So why not manufacture the drug for yourself? Set an intention to observe the tangible positive things that actually occur in as many moments as you can each day. Consciously note what is positive, what is working, and what is real. Like right now. Of all the things that are happening around you and to you, what is good about this moment you and I have together?

It Takes Two to Tango

Lessons In Coaching From 3 Common Mistakes Made When Dancing Tango

The intention of this post is to invite you to consider the synchronous nature of your coaching through the use of a dance metaphor.

The Tango is a dance influenced by African, South American, and European cultures and is characterized as being based on a syncopated rhythm that allows for much improvisation and full expression. To watch a couple, dance the Tango in a synchronous way can be an immersive experience; watching the dancers float across the floor effortlessly, perfectly synchronized, connected, and fully expressing. They share equal power in the movements even though one partner is leading. It can be so moving when the dancers are in sync. When the dancers are out of sync or “off” in their partnering of the dance, the experience for the observer can be choppy, disconnecting, and in some way uninspiring.

January 2022 — First Coaching Tip of 2022

image

Welcome to 2022

If lockdown, vaccinations, and social distancing, were no longer terms you used in 2022; What would you be talking about? What would you be thinking about?

2022 and your coach are inviting you to start exploring these two questions.

At first, resist looking for definitive answers, rather, see the trends or directions of your answers. Observe the themes of your thoughts and feelings. Is there a repetitive pattern? Are you starting to hear your dreams, hopes, and desires creep back in? Are you being drawn towards more responsibility, new or deeper relationships, balance, or love?

The secret to 2022, a six-year, is to Accept what is and build on it. Written by Merv Rogers, MCC, Chief Coaching Officer for Coaching Out of the Box® Read More…

 

A note from our CEO and Founder, Alison Hendren, MCC:

Welcome to 2022! This past year has seen no shortage of challenges, uncertainty, and change and now we are out of the gate and hurtling into 2022. In 2021 I found myself asking what I consider a hall of fame coaching question “What is the opportunity in this”? That question also supported our growth as the demand for coaching education continued both for those wanting to obtain a credential and for those wanting to add to their work and life toolkit. Our wonderful participants also surfaced an “opportunity” to make it as easy as possible for them to learn by developing “Porto” our new online learning platform plus cool digital materials too.

As 2022 unfolds here is what I encourage you to do and that is this, “Fully respond to what is coming at you”. AND may lots of good things come at you for 2022!
