Coaching is training or development in which a person called a “coach” supports a learner in achieving a specific personal or professional goal. The learner is sometimes called a “coachee”. Occasionally, “coaching” may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on competence specifics, as opposed to general overall development.

Some coaches use a style in which they ask questions and offer opportunities to challenge the learner to find his or her own answers. This helps the learner find answers and new ways of being based on their own values, preferences and perspectives.

Families have stories. Even corporations have stories. However, the focus of your work this month will be on your story. Click here for the full article.

Overcoming Blocks to Success

This month we are going to focus on the first roadblock- misalignments. Misalignments include; assumptions we are making about what is possible, attitudes and beliefs we have, biases we hold, convictions we have developed, and unexamined perceptions of self, others and the world. Misalignments can be also be viewed as incongruence in the ways that we think or ways that we behave which are out of sync with what we really want. For example, if you want to change a behavior but keep doing what you have always done, that is a misalignment. Click here for the full article.
