Coach's Corner

My Coach's Stand
by Michael Wise

I struggled with my coach’s stand at first. I thought I had developed several great stands and metaphors, but none of them helped. Lost and confused, I switched my stand a few times but never really connected with one. Eventually I thought, “I can just coach without a stand and I’ll be fine.” So I tried that for a while and found many sessions didn’t go as far as I would like. I let my clients linger in stories for too long or just chat.

Happiness: Forget Extraordinary, Just Be Yourself
By Tanuja Ramchal

One of my favorite books is The Great Work of Your Life by Stephen Cope. Cope opens with a bold quote from the Book of Thomas: If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.

The quote resonates deeply for me is because I know this to be true from my own experiences.

Coaching in Communities

The Leaders of Coaching for Community Transformation
by Jeremy Lahoud

“What worlds become possible when young people experience Coaching for Transformation?” That’s the empowering question emerging for me as I enter the halfway point in my Coaching for Transformation (CFT) certification program in Los Angeles.

Values: An Inside View
by Charlotte Morse

This series of articles on Leadership that Works’ values gives a glimpse into the core of our organization, defining the “why” and “how” we do business.

Core Value - CollaborationCore Value #4: Collaboration
Leadership that Works’ core value of collaboration is built on a foundation of trust, respect and belief that collective wisdom always trumps individual thinking. Within a collaborative culture, we attempt to answer the question, “What is best for the whole?” Connecting with stakeholders at all levels—individuals, organizations and communities—and encouraging an open flow of information and idea exchange sparks innovation, strengthens our product, and benefits the community as a whole.

A snapshot of LTW’s core value of Collaboration:
We believe that working together unlocks greater potential than we can achieve on our own. Creating conscious relationships and teams encourages each of us to make a uniquely powerful contribution. We enthusiastically partner with other entities in order to expand our collective knowledge and ignite synergy.

Words of Wisdom

At Leadership that Works, we believe collective wisdom always trumps individual thinking. That’s why collaboration is one of our core values. Here are some reflections on the gift of thinking together.

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships. —Michael Jordan

Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do so much. —Helen Keller

Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t. —Bill Nye
