The Blame Game

The basis of blame is called the Fundamental Attribution Theory. This theory describes the error involved in attributing blame and is a valuable asset for a leader’s knowledge base. The basic concept involves blaming mistakes that others make on their personality or individual qualities and the mistakes that we make are blamed on the situation. We give ourselves the benefit of the doubt but not others. This automatic reaction is human nature and the most seasoned and educated of us make this error in judgment.

The best of us recognize our false attribution as it occurs and make proper adjustments in order to be fair to others and to the situation at hand. Understanding that we make this critical mistake is important for leaders because they are solely responsible for influencing the actions and behaviors of their followers.  If the leaders insist on the continuation of this mistake then their team will follow their lead and create a culture of blame.

People make mistakes – some more than others – sometimes mistakes are the fault of individual qualities and other times it’s the situation that creates the error. We need to treat people how we would like to be treated – the blame game creates mistrust and dysfunction within teams. Leaders need to be able to decipher the difference between mistakes that are caused by the situation or individual qualities in order to be effective leaders.

Participative Management and Leadership Success

The most influential concept of successful management is Participative management: Respecting people builds trust which fuels innovation, not institutions that advocate for coercive management. Those who are coercive will either evolve their management style or face extreme loss and eventual failure.

Leadership success is judged on the six following variables:

  • Individual achievement
  • Team or Organizational Achievement
  • Employee Satisfaction Ratings
  • Succession Planning – Leadership Replacement
  • Strength of Organization before, During, &      After
  • Finally, LEGACY: World Influence, How Leaders      are Remembered

 

Successful leadership will acquire the majority of the stated above variables and the ultimate judges will be those who followed.

Leadership Matters

The main prerequisite for leadership is for the aspiring individual to be motivated to be a leader.  A lack of motivation to handle the enormous task of leadership will certainly end in failure. The second prerequisite for leadership is for the leader to have followers.  Without followers there is no leadership. Leadership is relational – Leadership is psychological – Leadership leverages power appropriately – Leadership is an ART.  Effective leadership greatly improves all business processes at all levels. Strong leadership provides product differentiation.

Servant leadership builds trust within the organization.  Today’s leadership requirement has turned the hierarchical pyramid upside down. Influence, providing vision, fulfilling needs for acknowledgement, and creating meaningful work for employees is mandatory of current successful leadership. The pay differential for leaders vs. mid-level employees is vast and these higher salaries create higher expectations.  Technology has created a world where work never stops and providing leadership around the ever-changing organizational variables is integral.

Leadership has changed forever and soft skills such as relationship building, collaboration, and change management are the key metrics for producing success.  This statement is uncomfortable for most leaders because it clashes with their leadership experience. The previous statement is not a blanket statement for the leadership of yesterday, but rather, a harbinger of the leadership of our current future. Soft skill leadership will provide a competitive advantage and competing companies will rush to leverage the art of true leadership.  As the environment changes so does leadership practices in order to be financially solvent. The ultimate goal of all business is to make a profit which starts and ends with successful leadership.

Strategy Framework for Leadership Coaching

The phrase “strategy” has been marginalized since its inception, but the ever evolving business environment increasingly benefits from quality strategy which could be the difference between success and organizational failure.

Leadership is the life blood of all organizations and a strategy to maintain a consistent leadership base of seven years is optimal for success.  Leadership teams need to selectively abandon past processes and replace areas of need with new creations that power future production. Leadership teams need to have a constantly evolving five-year plan because the external landscape is constantly changing and is difficult to predict.

Strategy needs to consistently evolve because it possesses a half-life from the moment of implementation. Additional limits to strategy include imitation and commoditization which reduces value and effectiveness.

The future is rapidly changing and the yearly complexities of business are constantly morphing through ever-expanding world crisis.  Growth is associated with complexities and globalization has increased expectations to levels that are unmanageable without proper strategy and leadership.

Tomorrow’s dilemma will make today look and feel like the 1850s.

We Are All Leaders

We are all leaders. Leadership is about influence. Leadership begins with the self and a valuable component of strong leadership is love. We specialize in leading ourselves and make choices to positively influence our present and future. To love anyone else we need to start with loving ourselves and to lead anyone else we need to begin by leading ourselves.

This challenge is bigger than first perceived and many people fail to make it past the starting gate because of initial poor choices that lead to social debt. Playing catch up mode in life prevents compounding growth of success from happening, but success is not unreachable if we start pushing the 200 ton bus today.  The goal is to have something to show for life when it is all said and done.

Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is an important theory that outlines the progression of successful development. Briefly, we need basic needs such as food and water, and will strive to satisfy these needs at any cost.  Poverty creates violence and we would all become animalistic if cast to the lower level of the hierarchy.  Safety needs are next followed by the need to be liked by others or some would call it the need for love.  This is the level most of us attempt to fulfill and fall short because of choices or faulty intentions.

Strong leadership ability depends on satisfying this need and this need is fulfilled initially by loving ourselves. The following two levels are where history takes place and greatness is achieved. The need to be respected by others and the need to be accomplished are the fuel of higher level goals.  When Rocky reaches the top step we all feel his energy and identify with his determination because it is human nature to want to reach that top step. Leadership starts within us and providing others with positive influence is a priceless gift that transfers throughout generations.

Changing the Way the World Works

The economy is still struggling and the job market has been less than inviting.  Prospective employees are staying on the sidelines and the employee selection process is less than effective.  People are hired for all the wrong reasons and talented individuals find themselves on the outside looking in because they fail to prepare in an uniformed expectation.  The selection process needs to improve in order to take advantage of the skilled labor that the U.S. has to offer. More and more college graduates are underemployed and underutilized because they fail to meet the specific requirements of the organizational gatekeeper.

Potential employees are asked to jump through more hoops today than ever before because companies are cautious of hiring the wrong person who will not “fit” into the company culture.  An ill-advised hire can cost an organization tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue.  The work environment of today is a paradox for both potential employees and hiring managers because there is more pressure to perform and produce than ever before.  The knowledge economy has raised the bar on production speed and the high price of the stock market reflects this reality.

Professional executive career coaching mediates the pain involved in making critical decisions around hiring and reduces the pressure to produce because a properly coached individual is a better choice for employment than a uncoached individual.  The coaching process provides critical insight for the potential employee concerning their knowledge, skills, and behaviors and how they relate to current job market.  A professional career coach co-develops a job strategy with the client to maximize opportunities and raise awareness concerning the interview expectations.  “Work today as we know it has changed forever with the continuing advancement in technology and the widespread competition of globalization” says Keith Miller, President of the Million Dollar Coaching Company.

Becoming a Coaching Client (Coachee)

The needed mindset of a successful coachee relies on 5 factors:

1. Openness to new experience.

2. Commitment to self-work.

3. Deep thinking for resolution.

4. Ability to deal with moments of discomfort.

5. A strong motivation to become more successful.

Becoming a first time coaching client is a new experience that from a distance can be intimidating and seem to be an uncomfortable venture that is less than desirable.

The coaching experience is quite the opposite and clients who have taken this venture usually retain a coach to assist their development concerning multiple issues throughout life.

The coaching engagement begins with a consultation between coach and potential client to understand situations, concerns, desires, goals, and to answer specific questions. Furthermore, the ground rules (i.e. meeting times, confidentiality, etc.) for the coaching engagement are discussed and agreed upon.

Following the initial consultation, a customized engagement is created for each individual coaching client with a focus on actionable goals, strategy creation, and actualizing achievement.

Not all coaching is created equal and finding the ideal coach who fits with your mission and life values is essential for enhanced overall success.

The coach-coachee relationship is a partnership that has a joint agreement to reach desired outcomes or goals. The coachee is required to commit to the hard work needed to implement and sustain positive change in life.

The coachee controls the information within the coaching relationship and the coach drives the pace and directional focus which is in the best interest of the coachee.

Trust and confidentiality is achieved and maintained by the coach throughout the engagement to enable the coachee to obtain a deeper understand of self, situation, and process that limit or enhance performance.

Coaching is about raising awareness and maximizing strengths within situations that maximize results and overall satisfaction. Avoiding problems and acknowledging behaviors are silent or lesser known enhancements that provide substantial benefits in most future situations.

Corporate Coaching and 360 Assessment – Internet Business

Corporate Coaching and 360 Assessment

Boost The Potential Of Your People

Corporate mentoring can unleash the business's probable to the hilt. Government teaching basically is aware of how to drive the best buttons to deliver to life or improve the abilities of people with your company and the company itself. Obvious and not so obvious roadblocks should be managed and completed away using the help of skilled executive coaches.

There are quite a few types of mentoring, but corporate coaching is not so simple. Government coaches weight train business leaders in a deeply motivational and inspirational manner, so which these folks, very, could encourage and motivate the people helming their company. How is corporate mentoring unique from personal teaching?

Personal Coaching And Corporate Coaching

Personal teaching concentrates on the individual, such as the CEO, the Senior Supervisor of the Series Supervisor. Large enterprise coaching, as a other hand, teaches company leaders to maximize themselves and the crew's potential and productivity. Nonetheless, business leaders are coached to be not overly forceful on their people. Executive mentoring is generally performed to overwhelming of executives in an company. The impact of the weight lifting nevertheless sends a shockwave on to the full business. Such a mentoring extends its effects from the few to the entire company.

If you are preparing to make use of corporate coaching for the organization, you will be informed of the various types of how they are conducted. The typical and the very best use way of coaching executives is in workshops and seminars. These are one time extremely billed coaching sessions. Workshops and seminars are good if your manufacturer is putting into action a new cover or defining a new goal. Listed below, key fighters in the business are taught on suggests of maximizing the outcome of the subordinates and therefore ensuring that ambitions are supported. It is ideal that a couple of individuals are educated at once because there is adequate opportunity for individuals present to talk up through the session.

Coaching In Regular Intervals

After that there are intervals or the regularity of the teaching calls. This is crucial as normal boosters in particular if your team's motivation is acquiring weedy. 360 assessment sessions can probably be made quarterly or half- yearly. Whatever the claim, mentoring for your company leaders should be very carefully planned out, like once the company are drawing up milestone policies. The most successful coaching for executives by far is an increasing month-to-month sessions with at minimum 6 weeks commitment.

Life Coaching – Past, Present, and Future

If you have been searching the internet for something, you will usually end up with a life coach site popping up in your results at some point. Life Coaching has evolved over the years and continues to change and grow – but what is life coaching, how do you choose a life coach, and what should you be aware of?

Life Coaching Past:
Life Coaching really emerged, noticeably, about 10 years ago. Most life coaching was advertised as Executive Coaching or Leadership Coaching and they were usually hired by corporations for staff or individual training. With the onset of in-house corporate training teams, the need for Executive Coaches diminished and many sought other areas to continue coaching in. Since then, there are now life coaches that coach in every area of life you can think of and then some. Many life coaches specialize in one or two main life areas but many still coach in multiple life areas. Originally, life coaches were people who had some kind of previous work experience before going into coaching. Most Executive Coaches came out of the corporate business world and as an Executive Coach or Leadership Coach, were able to make great incomes. Many of these past Executive Coaches also have become Client Attraction or Marketing Coaches in today's climate and their services are provided to corporations still but mostly to small or solo businesses or individuals.

Life Coaching Now:
Now life coaching is common, easy to find and is for businesses and individuals and can be called just about anything. Today, there are many life coach training schools but there are huge disparities between the qualities of education students receive from school to school. In fact, there are no required educational standards that a life coach school must follow/provide and there is no regulation of the life coach industry. Anyone can call themselves a Life Coach and open a practice – buyer beware becomes a very serious phrase to remember. There are now a couple of professional organizations, such as the International Coaching Federation, which as a professional membership organization, is working diligently to establish coaching standards, life coach school standards and looking at types of regulations that could benefit the industry and consumers.

There are now between 10,000 and 20,000 life coaches that are providing services to customers. There are an increasing number of people pursuing becoming a life coach. Many people want to help others but many think they can earn a tremendous amount of money while being able to work at home in their pjs, part-time. If only it was that easy. Today's world of having a web based business and all it entails has become very complicated and it isn't as cheap in start-up costs either. Most life coaches are earning much less than $20,000 a year because they don't have enough clients. Many coaches fail because you have to be a person who can structure their own time while working from home. When you work in a business, it provides structure that you work within. At home, there is no structure except what a person creates and it is all too easy to not be structured. Marketing has become a huge part of daily life for life coaches, much more than ever before and many have taken marketing to an incredible level of hard selling. Those 'coaches' providing marketing or small business start-up coaching have created a huge income based industry but it has also gained tremendous competition over the last few years.

Niche Is In:
Niche in life coaching is the current theme – this means that a life coach 'specializes' in one or a few areas only. There are many life coaches though who still would be considered general life coaches and offer a much broader range of coaching services. The market is pushing life coaches to have specific niche's quite hard and explain that the public prefers 'specialists' and are willing to pay more for them. It is rather like the medical profession, you have generalists, generalists with a smaller focus, specialists with a broad focus and specialists with very specific focus topics. So, everyone entering coaching is told to have a niche; it could be life coaching, client attraction, marketing, public relations, Christian, organization, health, financial and many, many more areas that 'coaching' is being offered in.

Buyer Beware:
Throughout my research, I was totally amazed at how few life coaches will post their prices but also, and perhaps even more importantly, they do not post their educational or work experience! I don't know about you, but I'm not really interested in sharing my dreams and goals with someone unless they are qualified and that means having work, life and educational experience in their 'niche' or coaching areas. I've asked many other coaches, and some of them are very well known and successful, and been told that education and experience are not important! So, I guess from that, if someone worked at the local animal shelter and didn't graduate from high school, they are just as well qualified to provide life coaching services as everyone else. NOT in my book. We check out loads of information before we buy a car, before we choose a doctor, and even before we purchase a mattress. Why wouldn't it mean something about what education and work/life experiences a life coach has? So, buyer beware!

Marketing and using psychology to sell whether on the web or in 'real' life, is something every business uses. Unfortunately, the web is unregulated and you cannot check things out and be secure that the information you get is honest and truthful. There is no Consumer Reports or Better Business Bureau for the Internet. The science of selling is intense and is geared at: getting visitors to give e-mail address for a 'free' gift so they have you in the mailing data base; use words and colors to attract you and make you 'trust' them, offer free material to read and low priced items and then you'll receive e-mails about tele-seminars, videos, guest speakers, and high cost products/memberships/mentorships and mastermind groups. Many coaches are genuine but how do you tell the difference without making many painful, expensive and time consuming mistakes. Also read the fine print, many web businesses do not have guarantees or refunds available. Look for coaches who belong to national organizations, who post their credentials (experience and education), and did they graduate from a life coaching or coaching program or school? You can't trust testimonials often, due to a business may have provided services to hundreds but you will only see the few who wrote glowing testimonials, a site that has ratings on it is great but can be doctored, asking to speak to a former client is the best method of checking out a particular coach business, even many former clients is better. I hope there will be some type of review system devised someday, as in your community word gets around quickly about a company, but on the internet you don't have that check and balance system available. So, buyer beware!

Why people should try Life Coaching:
Life Coaching is an awesome way for people to stay motivated, keep their focus, gain self-insights and strive to achieve their goals. Life Coaching deals with the here and now and goes forward from there, it is an action based co-active coaching style that is not like therapy which deals with past life events and more psychological issues. A life coach should have the educational/work/life experiences and tools necessary to meet the needs of their customers and if not, then say so and refer the customer to a life coach that does. I recently tried to get a referral network started at the life coach school I attended, so that I and others would know where to refer a customer if I felt their needs could be better met by another. Only two other coaches felt secure enough to put their strengths out there – no one else!

In today's busy, fast-paced world, it is often filled with stress, little personal support and difficult to achieve your goals or solve problems. Life Coaching is a great means to help a person with achieving their goals, solving problems, getting the support they need so that life is less difficult and overall, improved.

What to look for in a Coach:
Tips for you, as a customer in choosing a life coach include: know ahead of time what you want to achieve with a life coach and be able to answer how a coach can best work with you and you with them. It is also helpful to have an idea on how long you are willing to be in coaching before you expect to achieve your results and how much you can afford; research different life coach websites and read their articles, newsletters and check out their education/work/life experience and training; interview 3 different coaches – include in the interview all your questions on experience, prices, examples of accomplishments related to your goal, how long do they think it would take to achieve your goal, explain how you prefer to work with a coach and ask what their style of coaching is; ask for two references that had goals similar to yours; and most importantly, make sure the life coach you choose is one that you 'connect' with or that 'feels right' to you. Other possible questions can be asking what the life coach feels are their strengths and weaknesses. Also be cautious if you get the impression that the life coach may end up 'telling you what to do' or pressuring you into goals or avenues that you do not want and they seem more the agenda of the coach than yours.

Life Coaching is supposed to be about the customer and what they want to achieve and their style of learning/growing/achieving through the process of reaching their goals. It is not about the life coach. In fact, every life coach's goal should be to put themselves out of business. If coaching were done well, then eventually, fewer people would need it. As the saying goes, 'teach them to fish rather than feeding them fish and they will never go hungry'. Costs for life coaching services can typically run $300-$600 a month and some will go to $300 or more an hour. Some coaches actually earn $18,000 hour. If the life coaches you check-out don't publish their costs, ask.

What is the future of Life Coaching?
Where is Life Coaching going in the future? While the economy and the increasing stress of everyday life is severely hurting the quality of people's lives, life coaching will continue to grow in the number of people it serves as well as the number of life coaches entering the field. The number of people utilizing the web and becoming web based businesses will continue to increase the number of coaches who provide marketing, client attraction and who start business types of services.

One of the newer life coaching waves coming is 'Wellness Coaching' which is similar to health coaching. Of concern to me is that many, who are entering this 'niche', receive only 20 hrs of training. Many life coaches practicing health or wellness coaching have not checked their state's laws on what they can and cannot coach on in this 'niche'. A life coach cannot treat, diagnose, cure, prescribe or provide counseling. As a Holistic Practitioner, Certified Life Coach and Licensed Social Worker, I fear for people receiving life coaching services on health related subjects from life coaches with so little background in health and thus the potential for harm of the customer may occur. This is my concern and opinion which is shared by some and not by others. The pressure for more specific specialization, 'niching', will likely increase as well.

Will social media change the face of coaching? That's unknown at this time. There are many blogs and forums now that people can access for support for their specific needs, meet and get to know other people interested in the same things. The world has gotten smaller and it is much easier to find people to talk to on the web, yet we are more isolated in our 'real' lives than ever before.

I envision the complexities of marketing, which include free give aways, membership groups, increased administrative time (which means less time for coaching), hard selling and heavy marketing will continue to increase, as well. I envision there will be expanded Coaching Schools that provide coaching education that gives core basics for all types of coaching and then gives additional education in specific areas of specialty types of coaching. These will greatly lead to better qualified service providers. I found it amazing, how many coaches actually came out of the computer field from computer programming, IT support, web design and such. I do hope that something can be done to make sure the competency, skill, education, and experience of life coaches becomes more uniform and is not as much a 'shooting in a barrel' experience for customers to find truly skilled and dedicated coaches.

In conclusion, life coaching has gone from corporate America to mainstream. The benefits of life coaching are becoming better known and there are many gifted life coaches available – but you will have to do some weeding first. Life Coaching can improve the quality of your life and even your physical and mental health and thus, it is hoped, it may be covered by health insurance as pro-active services someday. In the mean time, life coaching is affordable and easy to find. If you are in search of life coaching for a very specific area of your life or goal, there is likely a life coach that covers it. But the bottom line is that it is up to the consumer to pick the 'right' life coach for them and if it doesn't work for you, then stop and switch to a life coach that will 'fit' you better. Life coaching has evolved considerably and will continue to do so and in 6 years, we'll write another article updating you on how things have, yet again, changed.

Performance Coaching – Bring out your Professional Best

Performance coaching has many benefits and advantages for executives, employees and managers working in all kinds of organizations. It helps to improve the overall efficiency and productivity of the team which not only reflects on the company’s growth but also each employee’s personal growth.

This kind of coaching is usually carried out by experts who either work as individuals or as part of a firm which imparts coaching sessions. Coaching of this sort is extremely valuable for managers and team leaders as it helps you obtain feedback faster than other traditional methods like performance reviews and processes. With faster feedback, you also get faster results which enable you to get the best out of your employees without the need for negative criticism. Investing in the development of employees is a big asset for any organization as it is his performance that decides the growth and success of the company.

Several different strategies, tools and techniques are employed in coaching employees to improve the overall performance of a team. The core sessions will enable the employees to stay motivated, engaged and focused on their individual strengths. Coaching also helps to open up the channels of communication thereby allowing the right message to reach across to the employees from the manager’s or team leader’s side.

Another advantage of performance coaching is that it prepares you to handle difficult situations, internal problems and conflicts in a diplomatic manner. You are also equipped with tools and strategies that help you tide over this problem turning them into opportunities for growth. It is not always necessary for a company to hire a performance coach from an external firm. The managers, team leaders and senior executives can take up this task and coach the other employees of the organization. Since you work with each employee closely, you will be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses more realistically and thereby coach the person accordingly.

Till a few years ago, most organizations were not ready to spend time and resources on performance coaching. But now, companies have woken up to the fact that developing the strengths of the employees not only enables them to provide their best at work but also increases the overall efficiency and performance of the team. This in turn translates into better profits for the company in the long run. Today, this type of coaching is considered as an investment and coaches are regularly employed for assessments and coaching sessions to evaluate and coach the employees accordingly.
