Coaching the Poor Communicator

Let’s talk about a common yet very important coaching challenge – coaching the poor communicator. Of course, communication can be written or verbal and many points in this newsletter can apply to both but, for now, we are narrowing our focus down to interpersonal verbal communication.

When information is exchanged there must be a balance between giving and receiving. When communication works, there is a connection between the individuals involved. This gives us clues as to where we might focus when working with a poor communicator.

Are they able to give and receive information effectively and in doing so make a positive connection? If not, where is the breakdown occurring? What is getting in the way and preventing them from being a good communicator?

Join us for our upcoming webinar as we deepen the discussion on Coaching the Poor Communicator. Details below.

Free Webinar? Yes, please!

In this webinar, we will discuss strategies on how to identify and break down the barriers standing in the way for a poor communicator to become an effective and efficient communicator moving forward.

Join us on Wednesday, April 21 at 11 am Pacific / 2 pm Eastern!

We, as coaches, need to help our coachees identify the barriers getting in the way of good communication. Once we understand the reasons for poor communication, we need to help them break down the barriers and start building a path that will lead to clear, open, honest and productive communication.

Your success as a coach in this process will be based on your ability to not only ask excellent questions, but to ask them in a manner that is open, unattached and judgment-free. Asking not only the appropriate question, but in the appropriate way, is very important to the learning, living and communications process, especially for someone who is challenged by emotional barriers.

3 Key Tips on Coaching the Uncoachable

The idea that some people are uncoachable goes against my grain – I like to think everyone can be coached – if we just take the right approach. I’ll admit that there are some individuals that are very difficult to coach. And I guess I must accept that there may be a few who really are uncoachable because they don’t see or believe there is any need to change.

You may run across individuals that seem to be uncoachable at many different levels within an organization but you are more likely to find them at the top. These individuals typically have a lot of experience, they have made it to the top on their own, doing things their way. So, their thinking is often - why would they need to be coached? Or, they think it is everyone else who needs to change and others who could use coaching – not them.

But let’s be real – some get to the top based more on politics and charisma than performance and competence. Now, I am not saying that they don’t make contributions to their organizations but it is HOW they got there and HOW they interact with others that is the issue. Because of their approach or style, they often end up creating a toxic environment. Short-term they may be achieving their goals but long-term these same characteristics can end up derailing them. If you haven’t run into an uncoachable yet, you will find that uncoachables at the top of an organization often exhibit greed, arrogance, reckless risk-taking and other detrimental characteristics. Every top executive can benefit from coaching but not everyone sees it that way.

When it comes to coaching these uncoachables you need to flip the script. Rather than focus on their strengths it is more important to focus on what could potentially derail them and negatively impact their organization and their career.

Join us for our upcoming webinar to learn 3 key tips on coaching the uncoachable. Details below.

You find yourself in a position to coach the uncoachable. Now what?

When it comes to coaching these uncoachables you need to flip the script. Rather than focus on their strengths it is more important to focus on what could potentially derail them and negatively impact their organization and their career.

In this webinar, we will discuss three key tips to keep in mind when you are ready to coach an uncoachable, and how to implement them into your coaching:

  • Understanding their motivations, goals and personality and work with these not against them
  • Helping the coachee to see potential issues that could end up derailing their upward trajectory. This might involve gaining insight into WHY their approach has worked so far but then taking a long-term view to see how this approach could turn into a liability for them and their organization
  • Helping the coachee to discover how they can remain authentic but add new approaches, thinking and tools to achieve their goals that won’t become a liability

December 2020 Newsletter

by Coaching Out of the Box

What's in this newsletter? Check out a coaching demo, a few of our upcoming programs, how to strengthen your coaching muscle and more!

 

The Power of Coaching during a Pandemic

What if EVERYONE had coaching skills! Even after over 20 years of being in coaching I am still moved, humbled, and reminded of the power of coaching.

I want to draw your attention to a recent coaching demo that happened during the Live Coaching Sessions webinar held in November. This coaching demo is an example of not only outstanding coaching but also so relevant to this time we are all going through. As you watch the coaching unfold, I hope you, like me, will be reminded of the power, value, and impact of coaching, plus feel supported in your own coaching development.

Special thanks and acknowledgement go out to our wonderful willing and open coachee, Darlene, as well as to two of our excellent Coach-Facilitators, Sinive Seely, PCC, for the great display of coaching, and Rosa Edinga, PCC, for facilitating the debrief.

As we near the end of 2020, I am wishing you and yours a safe and healthy holiday season.

Warmly,

Alison Hendren
CEO and Founder
