Managing Yourself

A coaching client wonders what elements need to be present to make someone appear executive. Two coaches ponder this question together and come up with five elements they deem essential.

A leader with traditional leanings worries to his coach that creating personal connections will violate boundaries. He further worries that he’s just not very good at making personal connections.

A leader’s boss has created a toxic environment. In conversation with his coach, the leader explores what factors he needs to nurture with his own team to assure they feel psychologically safe.

A leader finds that working remotely reduces his fight-or-flight responses. As they discuss his new calibration, his coach shares a game of imagination that tests his self-talk.

At the height of the pandemic, with everyone working from home, a leader tells her coach the many positive ways her team has deepened their connections and flourished in remote work.

“Video exposes us all,” says a leader whose daughter just intruded on her coaching call. She and her coach discuss the many barriers created when trying to make connections over video.

While everyone liked this one particular leader, she did not receive her expected promotion. Instead, she got a coach who helped her re-think how to position herself for her next opportunity.

A people-centered leader is often wounded by people. Her language reveals patterns of thought that lead her down unhealthy paths. She and her coach try to unplug these thinking errors.

Two different leaders each strive to not take things in the workplace personally. But they can’t help it. With their coach, they find ways to build more strength to resist taking things personally.

Knowing she’ll be featured at her company’s upcoming user conference, a leader asks her coach for help not freaking out. He shares an image from his time as an actor in Hollywood.

Two executive coaches tackle questions from readers. One is about breaking the pattern of dueling monologues and moving to dialogue. The other is about overcoming self-doubt.

A rising star achieves an amazing accomplishment, yet she doesn’t feel deserving of her success. Her coach helps her gain tools to quiet her inner critic that makes her feel like an impostor.
