We often hear the word "coach" and think it means the same, whether someone is a leadership coach or sports coach.
But all coaching IS NOT created equal.
Sports coaching and leadership coaching are actually very different, and in order to know which we are doing, it's important to know the differences.
So we don't end up "sports coaching" our team.
This is a common misunderstanding I see people make, and one worth clarifying.
Join me in this short episode as I explain the differences between sports and leadership coaching, so you can know which you are doing, and what changes you might want to make.

il y a 2 jours
15:28How we spend our time each day directly relates to our likelihood of achieving our goals. If we spend our time on what I call "empty calorie tasks" we will probably not change or grow much. But if we prioritize high quality tasks related to our goals, we will more likely achieve them. Understanding how to prioritize our time so we achieve our goals is one of my 2023 Lessons Learned. In this episode I share a helpful way to make decisions so you are on the path to achieving your 2024 goals.
My Top 3 Lessons Learned in 2023 - Part Two of Three
12:30Are you approaching work from a scarcity mentality or abundance mentality? A scarcity mentality leads to fear, stress and worry. An abundance mentality leads to calm, motivation and inspiration. Over the past year I have learned that approaching things from an abundance mentality not only benefits me but others as well. And it is a lot more enjoyable way to work. Listen to this episode to learn more.
My Top 3 Lessons Learned in 2023 - Part One of Three
14:56I have taken time over the last few weeks to reflect on my top lessons learned for 2023. These lessons can help you achieve your goals for 2024 - faster and better. I am sharing them in a three part episode - starting with how I have learned to not rely only on one or two ways of reaching a goal. If you want to grow more as a leader, this lesson will help you greatly increase your chances of doing so.
When to Ask "How Can I Help You?"
19:43Asking your team "how can I help?" is a great way to show your support. But knowing when to ask this question can make it more helpful to your team member - and ultimately to you as a leader too. In this episode I explore the best way to ask "how can I help you?" as a supervisor in order to empower your team and not keep them from growing.
A Simple and Effective Way to be a More Empathetic Leader
16:12Most of us prefer working for a leader who we feel cares for us over one who only cares about results. Many research studies confirm the same: empathetic leaders create higher performing and more motivated teams. Chances are if you're listening to this you are already a caring leader, but there is an opportunity that many leaders overlook which is so simple and yet goes a long way when you want to demonstrate caring for your team. In this episode I share this simple thing you can start doing immediately, and how it may reveal things you did not even know which can create a happier, more motivated team that creates more impact.
They are Watching You
11:14If you find yourself saying things like "my team knows not to follow my bad example (working long hours, for example)" then this episode is for you. So many humanitarian and development leaders I work with think they are the "exception to the rule". That is that their team does not follow their unhealthy work style. But how true is that really? From my experience, it's not. In this episode I show you how you are influencing your team's behavior more than you think, and what may motivate you to change it.
Finding Time for Developing Your Team
20:40You have a lot on your to do list. Between all the meetings, email and your everyday obligations, things get busy fast! And yet, one of our most important priorities as supervisors can be one of the ones we delay doing the most - that is developing our team. How can you find time to develop your team while also keeping your other priorities? Listen to this episode to find out!

How You May Be Delaying Your Goal Achievement
10:04How have you done achieving your annual goals? Sometimes it feels like there's some magic formula that we are missing which will allow us to achieve our goals. Thankfully, that's not true. Achieving our goals comes down to one thing. And that is: how we have prioritized our time. The way we use our time compounded leads us to the results we have today. The good news is that means you can make a change. If you choose to use your time on the things that will result in a stronger team or you as a stronger leader, you can achieve it. One obstacle that I see humanitarian and development leaders create for themselves is the idea that later will be better. After I finish this proposal, or donor visit, or final report, or whatever... THEN I will have the time. But that is just not true. There will always be things to do. Things that make you "busy". So knowing this, how can you prioritize what you know will make the most impact? Learn more in this episode. Resources mentioned: Not Enough Time and Later Is Better
What Happens When We Already Know
10:02You're listening to this because you want to grow as a leader. One way to do that is to be aware of your mindset. Having the right mindset, or perspective, can motivate us to grow and improve. But having the "wrong" mindset can lead to the opposite of growth. One limited mindset I see in humanitarian and development supervisors is when they tell themselves "they already know" something. "They already know" about this person. Or "they already know" about this skill. Or "they already know" about this experience. And guess what? Saying "you already know" shuts you down to looking for anything new. The opposite of growth. How might you be limiting yourself with what "you already know"? Listen to this episode to find out.
How to Make a New Way of Leading Successful
11:29Whether you know it or not, you have a certain way of leading your team. They are used to you doing things a certain way. So if you suddenly change that without saying anything... It could be very disruptive, and unproductive. In this episode I share what I've learned about how to introduce a new way of leading to make it successful, in part by making the transition more comfortable and inclusive.
