Coaching: turn insight into action

What do women really get out of executive coaching? Beyond my own clients’ experiences, I’m always on the lookout for good research on the effectiveness of what I do. (“Does it really work?” “How?”) When PhD candidate Deborah Galuk conducted her dissertation research (“Executive Coaching: What is the experience like for executive women?,” University of […]

Coaching reminders

A weekly digest of the coaching reminders I shared online this week: “Perfectionism” is an excuse, not an explanation. Stop asking for permission. Stop trying to remember everything. Start creating checklists. Know the difference between fear and discomfort. Know the difference between “ready” and “prepared.” What you give your attention gets your attention. (Want to […]

Coaching reminders

 A weekly digest of the coaching reminders I shared online this week: Commit to the process; detach from the outcome. If it’s not an overwhelming “yes,” then it’s a “no.” Don’t let yourself get seduced by the small stuff. Every time you say “yes” to someone else’s priority, you say “no” to your own priorities. […]

Olympic-sized detachment

Was ice dancer Charlie White thinking about the gold medal when he was out on the ice in Sochi? No, he told an interviewer, all he focuses on is putting in a performance he can be proud of. So why are you worrying about getting a publisher while you’re writing your book? Or worrying about […]

A weekly digest of the coaching reminders I shared online this week: Ninety-nine percent of the time, it’s NOT personal. She who remains professional wins.

What is coaching, anyway?

I love this description of coaching from Janet Harvey, president of the International Coach Federation: “In coaching you are seen as a whole, capable, and creative person.

My coaching couch

The divan came to me in 1996, the year I spent as a visiting professor in New York City. It was also the year of my first writer’s block. Okay, I told myself, if you don’t feel like writing, don’t. Just don’t, and let’s see what happens. What happened was the divan, among other things. […]

‘What should I do?’

It’s a familiar question for a coach: “What should I do?” As a coach, it’s not my purpose to give advice.  It’s my purpose to help my clients learn how to make confident decisions and take effective action. So, when I hear this question, I respond in kind, by asking three questions. Try them when […]

How to interview a coach

How do you know if a particular coach is the right fit for you? After doing your due diligence about credentials, experience, specialization, and testimonials, you want to have what I call a “meet-and-greet” conversation. Recently I experienced a really effective – even exemplary – interview by a prospective client. She put me through my […]
