In terms of coaching, is Global Listening a thing? When you are so engrossed with the person you are talking to that everything melts away and all you see, hear and feel are the words and emotion coming from the person you are talking to. You can gauge the energy of your coachee and their emotions as well as picking up what they are not saying.
That’s Global Listening.
For me, coaching has always been part of my job, I have a natural ability to hold coaching conversations and really enjoy working with trainees so that when the light bulb moment occurs and everything falls into place, I know I’ve helped that person gain insight.
I’ve been lucky in the past to receive great coaching. My coach has held a space so safe, so that when I fell apart, I could piece myself back together again.
So in my wisdom, because I have lots of time on my hands (note the sarcasm) in between launching a business, homeschooling and working next to the fridge, I’ve decided it was time to take my coaching credentials up a notch and enrol on CIM L7 coaching and mentoring course with Mosaic Partners.
The course will build on my past learning and will develop even further my understanding of coaching and mentoring policies and managing organisation culture and change.
I believe that people don’t want to be told what to do, they want the ability to make their own decisions. As leaders, we need the ability to guide and coach our teams to enable them to be the best they can be.
So, it’s time once again to get the pencil case out, as for the foreseeable future I will be a student again while I refine my coaching skills.
