My Leadership Coaching Philosophy
Assume positive intent
Most people want to do “the right thing.” As a coach, I hear the innermost thoughts and feelings of people who seek my counsel. As a result, I now firmly believe most people operate from a desire to do something positive, even if it may not always appear that way. We are better able to understand each other if we recognize that the root cause of bad behavior is usually a disconnect between method and objective.
Be Fully Human™
All of us, from the head honcho to the new person on the first day of the job, have emotions, imperfections, a personal life and a professional life. The most effective leaders understand that we can never – nor should we – fully divorce our professional lives from the rest of who we are. Those leaders inspire both by example and by weaving that informed judgment into the fabric of their organizations.
"I am because we are"
“I am because we are” is a South African philosophy called Ubuntu (pronounced “oo BOON too”). A Westerner organizes a race among a group of South African kids and is surprised when the kids all hold hands and run together. He asks, “Hey, what’s going on? Who won the race?” The kids answer, “We all won. Because if one of us loses, we all lose.” The most effective organizations operate on this principle.
Own your value
Each of us has a unique combination of personality, temperament, talents, and skills. Owning Your Power means identifying what those attributes are, and then deploying them to benefit an organization that needs and values those particular attributes. Like an orchestra conductor who brings out the best in each player, a great leader understands how to bring out the best in each individual in the organization. That way, every individual can own their value.
