4 Simple Communication Rules

trust handshake, 2 men   From success guru, Stephen Covey:

   1. See the problem from the other point of view. Really seek to understand and to give expression to the needs and concerns of the other party as well as or better than they can themselves.

   2. Identify the key issues and concerns (not positions) involved.

3. Determine what results would constitute a fully acceptable solution.

4. Identify possible new options to achieve those results.

 

My wildest radio interview yet!

Media-globe

I’ve done a lot of radio over many years but have never had a host who was literally raging from the political Far Right. Still, we agreed it’s time for transformation – not just the left or the right of the same old box. A new box – a new paradigm.

Our link with Universal Evolution

man on top of world

This quote provides often-overlooked context for whatever you’re working on:

“Everything that has ever happened in the history of the universe is the prelude to each of our lives. Everything that has happened from the beginning of time has become the platform from which we launch our lives.

We are the heirs of the long evolution of Spirit. Each of us is the latest unfolding of the event of Creation. Our bodies are composed of the material that was shaped in the Big Bang. And so, too, our spirits. The loving goodness of the universe breathes us and breathes through us, giving us life and consciousness, and the capacity to recognize and love others.”

– Rabbi Michael Lerner

5 Ways to Get the Most from Executive Coaching Programs

glasses on laptopHere’s how to best capitalize on executive coaching programs:

  1. Make sure that you screen for the best match between your organization and the gazillion executive coaching companies in the marketplace.
  2. Make sure you’re discerning between great marketing and truly transformational coaching.
  3. Make sure the executive coaching consultant is relying on metrics that matter. If s/he isn’t measuring culture and consciousness development along with tangible achievements, you aren’t getting an accurate picture of your executive coaching results. And, if they aren’t measuring those things, you’re not likely progressing adequately in those domains and that’s a waste of executive coaching fees.
  4. Make sure you have plenty of soak time for integrating the takeaways from executive leadership development.
  5. Make sure that either personal executive consulting or executive leadership programs are addressing the yin and the yang of executive leadership development, i.e. the hard and the soft data, core competencies and culture, as well as the continuum between bottom line financial health and contribution to greater good.
