Make Better Use of Your Lunch Breaks
This week I attended a coaching breakfast where Thomas Crane, author of “The Heart of Coaching – Using Transformational Coaching to Create a High-Performance Culture”. You can hear him speak in this YouTube video.
Later, while discussing leadership development with a client, the subject of coaching culture came up again. Whose job is it to make this happen? Leaders? the HR Department? Individuals? We decided that it is all three.
Would you enjoy your work experience more in an organization where people know how to provide feedback and support? How about forming a community of practice.
A great way to rejuvenate your career might be to find a few like- minded colleagues to have lunch together regularly to review and discuss Crane’s book. Perhaps as Crane suggested pairs could agree to coach each other and practice good coaching questions and feedback. The book provides a very practical model that could be adapted to almost every type of relationship.
