John Golden and Marcia Reynolds cover the following topics:
- How leaders can turn difficult emotional conversations into productive results? What is the first step in addressing that or overcoming that?
- In today’s virtual world, a lot of conversations don’t even take place face to face and carry forward in the virtual arenas. Is that increase or decrease or change how you should approach things or is it the same underlying philosophy?
- Our life experience of receiving feedbacks is in such a way that we don’t generally remember the good feedbacks but easily remembering the bad ones. So how to tackle this situation and stay motivated to do good work!
- Why it is essential to listen to people first?
Most of the people are not trained and know the exact meaning of coaching and how to coach others. With their own experience, the leaders learn how to tackle this issue and proceed in the right direction.
Where People Go Wrong?
Leaders and coaches are charged with getting people to stretch their limits but are often unsuccessful. Top leadership coach Marcia Reynolds says the problem is, incorrectly handled; difficult conversations create more resistance than growth. Reynolds offers a model and methods for discovering what to say so people change their own minds. As a result, leaders equip people to find their own solutions, see situations more strategically, and grow beyond their limitations. She explains why it is important to pick the right time and place to enter the discomfort zone.
Change your thoughts, change your behavior has long been the mantra for the personal growth movement. Yet no matter how hard you try, there are times you can’t stop the mental chatter that leads to needless arguing, tension, frustration, and eventually a numbing process that restricts access to your joy and passion.
