A Courage Coach Asks

Join me when I present “Courage—An INside Job!”to the International Coaching Federation Colorado May 11, 2017

A Courage Coach asks: “What kind of work/life represents your passion?” Then the coach:

  • Leads people to live in “breakthrough thinking”—visible changes in human behavior.
  • Designs goals to get us out of the intent that keep them in their existing skill-set (instead of being able to think, plan and act from what will produce a breakthrough).
  • Creates a vision based on a new future. Breakthrough goals are the key to the coaching relationship.
  • Understands the process of dialogue, where dialogue is a conversation in which there is a free flow of meaning in a group and diverse views and perspectives are encouraged.
  • Understands distinctions in communication styles. Incorporates the five linguistic speech acts.
  • Integrates assessment tools to appreciate “what makes you tick,” how to “manage-up” in the workplace, how to listen better, or to move through change.
  • Accentuates the strengths to “step up to the next courage level” based on the Ancient Chinese Proverb: “He who hesitates before each step spend his life on one leg.” (a coach does not focus or deal with psychological therapy or emotional pathologies like a therapist).
