January 2022 — First Coaching Tip of 2022

by Coaching Out of the Box®

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 itWritten 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!

December 2021 - "Happy All-The-Days?"

by Coaching Out of the Box®

With the holiday season upon us, it is time to give pause and reflect, what’s in a name? Answer: Everything.

Last week, I watched a commercial for a very large box retailer gladly tout, “Happy All-The-Days!” (pronounce it like Mary Poppins’ friend Bert might, with a terrible Cockney accent). Today in the grocery store, someone said, “Happy Day of Thanks”. Did they mean Thanksgiving?

My niece is a teacher in a local elementary school where they have removed specific holidays entirely from being discussed and celebrated. They removed Halloween and Thanksgiving in favor of “Fall Festivities”. They also removed Christmas (December 25), Chanukah (begins November 28), Diwali (November 4), and Kwanzaa (begins December 26) in favor of “Winter Holidays”.

Has there been a rash of recent holiday name changes that I am unaware of? Written by Patricia A. Lee, ACC for Coaching Out of the Box® Read More...

November 2021 — A Case for Coaching in a World Interrupted

by Coaching Out of the Box®

A Case for Coaching in a World Interrupted

In the context of leadership, coaching can be used as an approach to communicating and interacting where leaders act as partners with their team members, listen actively, and ask questions vs. telling employees what to do and how to do it. In learning a “coach approach” leaders are equipped with a new way of viewing the capacity and capabilities of the individuals they are there to support. From this new “lens” leaders are then better equipped to tap into the resourcefulness of their people. This serves to fuel employee engagement as individuals and teams are empowered to stretch beyond their comfort zones and leverage their strengths.

Coaching also gives rise to ongoing, meaningful, and reciprocal exchanges between leaders and their teams that foster trust, psychological safety, and where individual goals can be aligned with organizational goals. Written by Joanne, Peck, PCC for Coaching Out of the Box® Read More...
