Most people have received the following sage advice:
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
This is leadership gold. Whether you’re leading a Fortune 100 company or a herd of toddlers, the ability to pause and take mindful action is human evolution level 10.
It’s also very hard to do when shit is hitting the fan.
Oftentimes, we do pause, but our brains don’t work the way we want them to. We just get more frustrated. Our actions may not be outright ragey, but they aren’t exactly enlightened either.
Coaching is a performance tool for the space in between.
In a coaching session, we can spend time in that space and emerge with our best foot forward.
Coaching provides a new perspective, challenges our beliefs and creates accountability.
I have many clients that are known for defensive outbursts, stubbornness and aggression.
We are breaking this behavior down and getting to the root cause. We are creating new thoughts and new ways of leading.

Make the most of the ‘space’ in between. Engage a coach for your leadership team in 2023.
