Welcome to this weeks COACHd on Friday.
A few months ago, I took the plunge and invested in the WBECS program (World Business Executive Coaching Summit). To be honest this has grown into a bit of a monster – and the learning experiences from it are immense.
Recently, Senka Holzer, gave a talk about wellbeing in high performing teams. She explained that as individuals we have some basic psychological needs.
- To feel self directed
- Feeling competent and
- Feeling connected
She went on to explain about how we glean our core values and how these interact with acquired values (think impact of working in a corporate, precedence from family and friends as well as national values).
The interesting nugget though was when we start defining performance. We understand from Gallweys Inner Game work that Performance = Potential less Interference. The dissonance between our core values and our acquired values can cause dissonance and therefore interference.
Taking this on another level – when working with a corporate leader – sure – we need to help them with their behaviour and strategic challenges, but with this increased awareness and challenge in a changing organisation, the leader should also be empowering other areas (such as HR through talent acquisition and retention).
The next COCOACHING will be running in person in the centre of Birmingham on Monday 26th September at 11:30. We will do some walking coaching – and I will provide a framework / brief for this. This will run until 13:30. Specific details will be sent to those that register, and due to logistics – this cocoaching will be limited to 12 people. Book on here.
So, to this weeks reads – I do hope that you enjoy.
Oh, and have a great bank holiday weekend if you are based in the UK.
