COACHING STYLE

  • Friendly
  • Fun*
  • Straight forward
  • Tenacious
  • Patient
  • Rigorous
  • Present
  • Engaged
  • Intense
  • Intellectually clear and precise
  • Highly intentional
  • Efficient
  • Use lots of metaphor, analogy,
  • Will not allow you to “get around  me and/or my words (as opposed to being “confrontational”)
  • Interrupt a lot, and less so (I like to think) than I intervene effectively
  • I teach a great deal of information, but the most effective teaching is in the form of our partnership in using the interactions between us or with others as experientially grounded examples what is being taught (e.g. psychological defenses, “knee-jerk” emotions and beliefs,  Real Thinking, Real Adult behavior vs Pseudo Adult behavior, etc)

* I do not coach with anyone if it’s not mostly fun (because if it’s not, I’m doing something wrong and can’t figure out what it is, and my help to that person would be become extremely limited)

What you can count on from me as your coach (and should call me out on if you can’t)

  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Openness
  • Solid and appropriately flexible boundaries
  • Absolute transparency in anything to do with my integrity
  • Proactively acknowledging my “stuff” if and when it gets in the way and cleaning up any “spilled milk” along the way
  • That I almost certainly will miss schedule you at least once in the course of our work together (ADD is very real!).
