Beyond 360s: Deep Dive Coaching

2019-01-08T22:17:00+00:00

Typically, the best executive coaches are perceptive, somewhat intuitive and subtly tenacious. They are direct, great at building a rapport, and are astute listeners. Coaches should be adept at zeroing in on key themes and needs of their leader clients. However, some fail to use effective assessments or may use tools haphazardly. Many executive coaches [...]

Do You Have an Internal Career GPS? Many Veterans & College Students Lack Sense of Direction

2019-01-08T22:16:14+00:00

Not everyone is hardwired to know what they want to do in life. While many people are gifted with an embedded homing signal to chase their dream career or life quest, many remain confused throughout their life about what education or career choices are best for them. We identify what causes this career direction confidence [...]

Timing can be more important than we like to think it is in our lives. We have all experienced the best laid plans destroyed instantaneously by events outside of our control. On the other hand, most of us have also had unexpected luck or a sudden turn of events bless us when we least expected [...]

New Book Offers Solutions to Put an End to Google’s Gender Workplace Issues

2019-01-08T22:13:51+00:00

The Google gender dispute resulting in the firing of a software engineer this week who expressed his opposition for some of the company’s diversity and inclusion policies is unfortunate. Based on our research, detailed in my new book Fresh Insights to END the Glass Ceiling (set to release on August 29, 2017), it appears that both the [...]

Are You a “Rule Breaker?”

2019-01-08T23:17:08+00:00

Do you often resist rules or procedures? Do you welcome opportunities to break the status quo and to create or build new stuff? Are you a change agent, or at times, a wrecking ball? Do you have stories you could share about times you rejected authority that might surprise others? Do you enjoy being a prankster? If so, you [...]

2019-01-08T21:59:51+00:00

This is part 3 of a 3 part series, "Improving Your Leader Voice." In our executive coaching, assessment and leadership development practice, the number one developmental need for most executives and leaders is to enhance their “Leader Voice.”  This series is intended to help leaders (and coaches) discern the nature of their gaps and so that [...]

New Year’s Idea: Consider Taking a “Time Out” for You

2019-01-08T22:12:31+00:00

I cannot tell you how many leaders say to me, after the initial coaching debrief of their CDR 3-D Assessment results, “I wish I had done this 20 (or 30) years ago.” We are beginning another New Year – so isn’t it time you take a “time out” for you?  Why wait any longer?  Have [...]

Response to “The Five Faces of a False Advocate”

2019-01-08T22:10:11+00:00

I read your article on the False Advocate dimension with great interest, and agree entirely with your amplification of this crucial dimension, and its relevance in contemporary organisational life. I’m sure you are already aware of this, but I certainly found it fascinating to learn that Passive Aggressiveness has now been excluded as a personality [...]

The Five Faces of a “False Advocate”

2019-01-08T22:09:17+00:00

Of the eleven inherent leader Risks that we measure, False Advocate is the toughest for people to deal with or openly acknowledge. In fact, I continue to have executive coaches tell me that they think that this term is too harsh and overly negative. I agree it is not a complimentary, endearing, or a neutral [...]
