Thirty more things to bring to coaching

talkI recently posted an article listing 30 things that people often bring to coaching with me. It is a handout that I use with students on a course that I help run in the Summer but is based on my experience with the executives that I regularly coach.

Well, it has proven to be one of the most viewed articles that I have placed on LinkedIn, and so I thought I’d add the further thirty items from the other side of the handout!

I hope that they will be of interest.

  1. Building my external network
  2. Deadling with (difficult) individuals
  3. Developing my industry presence
  4. Doing research and preparing reports
  5. Engaging an audience
  6. Feeling uncomfortable about something
  7. Getting to know key influencers
  8. Giving something back
  9. Having more impact (world, industry, organisation)
  10. How do I work with a PA?
  11. How to make new friends
  12. I don’t do what I want to do
  13. I don’t really know how to delegate
  14. I know something won’t work but
  15. I’m changing; but my partner isn’t
  16. I’m sceptical of…
  17. I’ve had this feedback
  18. Life work balance
  19. Managing tasks more effectively
  20. My boss is a bully
  21. My family and other animals
  22. My health is suffering
  23. Raising my profile internally
  24. Someone says that I’m a bully
  25. Thinking strategically
  26. Time management as task management
  27. What does this initiative mean?
  28. What’s the next big idea?
  29. Where do I take my organisation?
  30. Widening my knowledge of the organisation

Naturally, there is no particular order to them!

  1. Being effective vs. Being efficient
    Effectiveness is doing the things that get you closer to your goals. Efficiency is performing a given task in the most economical manner possible.
    Being efficient without regards to effectiveness is the default mode of the universe
