Just arriving at ICF Converge, for 2.5 days of cutting-edge educational sessions and thought-provoking exchanges with peers. Time to step back to better step up. Time to get support and challenge.
Some weeks feel a little bit “straighter” and more focused. Projects are advancing, decisions made and implemented, meetings fruitful and constructive. And there are these others (many) weeks feeling disorganised, chaotic, with too many meetings back-to-back, not enough time to stop & think, decisions beeing postponed, interruptions beeing particularly frequent. In those weeks, you feel less in control and lacking impact.
It’s mid-week today, how does this week feel sofar? What can you do to ensure key priorities are adressed? To what do you need to say NO, to what do you need to express a stronger YES, so that Friday will feel like you’ve made a difference?
Where do you spend most of your time in?
And what do you need to do to
– move out of your comfort zone?
– increase your comfort in the change zone? What is your support network?
My understanding of my role as facilitator and executive coach is to support the leadership Teams I work with to have the conversations they wouldn’t have otherwise, starting by creating a safe place for them. This article gives you some tips on how you can do this when your facilitator /team coach isn’t there.
How do you think your next Leadership Team meeting would go if you also include the following questions:
– What do you think I need to know?
– Where are you struggling?
– What are you proud of?
Enjoy the safe place!
How much GREAT work have you done this week?
Sometimes small things can be great work for the real difference they make.
Enjoy the video as a call to positively challenge yourself!
