First, here’s a look back at my post from 2012 commemorating the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Let’s all be respectful, fair, and just in the work that we do. And see this image and quote from 2013. And my friend Jon Miller has a better collection of MLK quotes here.
Today’s post is hosted over at LinkedIn.com as part of their Influencers series:
Working with a personal fitness trainer has helped me see parallels to what I do with Lean… how my clients maybe see the world and things that I can do better as a coach, trainer, mentor, and consultant.
I don’t often get to be on the “coachee” side of the coaching equation. When I work with other consultants, like Karen Martin, that gives me a chance to get coached — receiving positive feedback and being challenged to improve. When I’ve used a speaking coach, Kathryn Partan, it’s very helpful because I try to improve and I see how somebody else approaches coaching and client work.
