Get a Coach to Achieve a Personal Breakthrough this Year

WCW, OneExcellentCoach

An excellent coach will help you:

  • Clarify your real goals
  • Identify a plan that will work
  • Follow-through on your “good” intentions
  • Give you honest and helpful feedback that will inspire you
  • Raise your game to another level
  • Believe in you even when you don’t
  • Push you to achieve only what you dreamed about in the past

Do you need a coach, take this quick assessment:

  1. Are you getting pressure to achieve better results from your boss?
  2. Do you desire a promotion and a higher income?
  3. Do you know your team can do better but they are under-achieving?
  4. Do you need to improve your leadership skills based on others feedback?
  5. Do you want to recapture your excitement for your career and ramp it up?
  6. Do you know you can be a better leader but you just aren’t getting the help you need?
  7. Are you committed to being more effective and want to improve your confidence and competence?

If you answered YES to one or more of these questions, coaching can help you get where you NEED or WANT to go-FASTER? WHY NOT […]

How to Motivated the “Unmotivated”

WCW, unmotivated

The first time that we met, John walked into the room with a scowl on his face. His eyes glittered with anger. I wondered, how do you motivate this guy? He sat down as if ready to pounce.  I’ve lived with teenagers so I don’t scare easily.  I shook his hand, made small talk and began to ask a few low key questions. Over a series of meetings we developed a rapport and trust. (Early in my career I did educational coaching and training.)

John told me he was considered a “tough guy”. His family had a history of trouble with the law. His older brother created a bad reputation for all of them. John was targeted early on by authorities. They felt he was unmotivated. Teachers cornered him and roughed him up on the first day of high school to warn him about bad behavior.  The local police chased him on the street. In John’s word’s, “I showed them that their worst nightmare about me was true.”  […]

How to Be a Good Boss and Achieve Your Goals

WCW, WantYourTeamtoImprove

Think of the worst supervisor or boss you ever had. Chances are someone comes immediately to mind. Why do you consider this person “the worst?” How did he or she act? How did this bad boss’s approach affect your attitude and work effort? Did this person influ­ence you to do your best?

Now, think of a situation where you had the best boss ever. (It’s harder to identify a boss who shines, isn’t it?) What was this person like, and what did he or she do differently? How did this person affect you and your work effort?

WCW, AreYouAGoodBossorBadBoss

Did you want to do a better job for the best boss versus worst boss? Of course! Regrettably, it’s far more likely that the majority of our work life has been spent reporting to bad bosses. Bad bosses continue to dom­inate the landscape of corporate America today. Despite the research on effective leadership and companies’ profit and loss statements, bad bosses are […]

Why Coaching is the “Secret Sauce” of Leadership

WCW, CoachingSecretSauce

“On Raglan Road” by Van Morrison and the Chieftains has these lines about hidden, subtle ideas:

I gave her gifts of the mind,
I gave her the secret signs,
That’s known to the artists who have known
The true gods of sound and stone.  

With the rapid pace of life and change in the modern world, there isn’t time for not revealing any secrets today. Too many managers fail unnecessarily. I hope they all succeed. While there are other important leadership skills, the lack of coaching is one of the main reasons for leadership derailment. Poor leaders don’t seem to care. I have seen too many managers in too many companies short circuit their results, careers and employees’ potential because of this. Coaching is not an inborn trait. It’s about learning a process and applying all the emotional intelligence skillsrequired for good relationships. If you are a manager or you want to be a manager you can […]

Leadership & Management – A Duet for Success


Great duets produce superior results. You’ve probably wondered at some point in your career…what’s the difference between leading and managing? Some managers lead…other leaders manage. If you label yourself one, does that mean you can’t do the other? Do they really differ? These are all questions that make sense, ought to be asked and at the end of the day, matter if you’re a manager.

Which is more important in an organization, leadership, or management?  Peter Drucker suggested that, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”  While consultants and writers have discussed this issue at length, there doesn’t seem to be a clear answer. Leadership and management do not encompass the same skills—what is the difference and is it important? The best way to describe the difference is that managers get people to do things and leaders get people to want to do things.

If we bucket these two things together, […]

12 Difficulties that Define a Manager’s Destiny

WCW, TrueTest

Management problems are like a tsunami that never ends. Everyday I hear about it from managers at all levels. Successful managers learn to absorb the issues as nourishment, to build a high performance team. Others become swamped, panicked, and succumb to a never ending nightmare. Believe it or not, a manager’s destiny is a choice. Here are twelve of the most persistent problems managers face and a few ideas on what to do.

Getting everything done

With budget cutbacks, Sue now manages one hundred people in her nursing department at a hospital in a major city. Her anxiety grows from the avalanche of multiple issues and responsibilities. With no help coming in the near future, her solution in a difficult situation has been to empower the team to make decisions and focus on the highest priority problems. Her dilemma showcases the troubles of many managers. They are overwhelmed with things to do and not enough time or people to get it all done effectively.

Managers are paid to move the […]

The Art and Science of Exemplary Coaching

You can’t be a great manager if you aren’t a good coach. Unfortunately, coaching is a lost skill. If you walk the halls of the corporate world, you won’t hear or see much coaching for two reasons.

  • Managers seem too be extremely busy.
  • Managers are in too many meetings.

Do you want to distinguish your results as a manager? Do you want to accelerate your success as a leader? Then pay attention and learn here; if not, just stay right where you are. Maybe for the rest of your career.

Coaching Works!

Coaching makes a huge difference on the bottom-line. A study by the Personnel Management Association compared training alone to coaching and training found that training alone increased productivity by 22.4%. Training plus coaching increased productivity by 88%! Another found a return on investment of coaching to be 529%. The evidence shows that exemplary coaching produces excellent results. Watch this leadership training video and get more details, and sding article, The Art and Science of Exemplary Coaching.
