Coaching Qualifications - worth it or worthless?
Whats your views on coaching qualifications?
Which are the coaching qualifications that you really rate and value? If you are a client or coachee can you share which qualifications you recognise and value..... if you're a coach, what's your experience of coaching qualifications, programmes and development? Which ones are worth it..... which are worthless!
I'm a fan of professionalising our coaching industry and raising both the flag and the standards of coaching.
Let's rave about our coaching.

Coaching delivers demonstrable value.
I'm a fan of coaching, be that business coaching, executive coaching, life coaching, team coaching, health, sport, performance coaching.
So my rave is that coaching works and delivers valid, demonstrable change, often quantifiable value....
But my rant is that not enough businesses look at coaching as a key part of their developmental strategy.
So let's all rave about coaching , and share quality articles and insights to educate the world about the genuine value of coaching, in all its forms.

G4S, really?
G4S seem to win some fabulous contracts and yet seem appear incapable of doing a decent job.
They messed up their 2012 Olympic contract - which was an absolute - disgrace, their staff have been accused of bullying and now they hand over a prison because they can't cope.
On top of this, and their billion pound turnover, they pay no tax apparently.
Given this, I wonder what their values are, and his this impacts on people , decisions, investment in people etc.

Jake Livermore , good work.
Great to hear premiership footballer Jake Livermore talking so openly and honestly about his poor choices and behaviours that got him banned from football, and how he has changed.

Given that footballers are not known for their emotional intelligence, jake Livermore has publicly bucked the trend and shown himself and football in a very open and positive light!

Having coached pro footballers to a high level I know how hard it is for them to say what needs saying, without fear of retribution.

Diving and Football
There's me thinking Tom Daly was a great diver until I saw some of the Premiership Footballers who perform incredible diving feats.
Frankly it's a disgrace that some players, including the talented Diego Costa, would have been placed higher than Daly at the recent Olymoics. The 27 year Chelsea star is a hugely skilled player, but he is not a great player because he has a nasty cheating streak.
When will the FA stop this ridiculous sub sport in football before it ruins the great game.

Challenging conversations
Challenging conversations!
So few people actually have them, let alone have them effectively. Most avoid the subject, leave it to some one else or hope it goes away..... Recently a senior partner of a professional services company told me how he'd waited several weeks for news of a promotion from the managing partner....eventually he asked for feedback to be told he did not get the role and that the managing partner had not known how to tell him because it was 'difficult'.

Are challenging, or fierce, conversations a hallmark of high performing teams?

Absolutely

The managing partner, like so many senior executives, needs some education on communication, feedback and relationships.

Leicester City
What a result! Yes, I know that everyone is talking about it and, yes, there is a bit of a bandwagon. However, it is a once in a lifetime story of sporting achievement and we humans do enjoy those occasions.

I'm looking forward to the analysis and dissection that will be coming, and perhaps even a film telling the story. If a film studio does take that on they will need to keep it close to reality, there are a lot of fans who will defend it!

So, a great result and something truly inspiring.

By the time anyone had a chance to really investigate the new season has started and they are not doing so well, although they seem to be holding their own in the Champions League. Is playing in Europe going to kill the magic by putting too much strain on the team?

Increase in virtual coaching
Very pleased to say that having done the numbers of last years work that I delivered 4x more coaching (value£) than in the previous year.
In part due to my return to coaching but more in the fact that clients were seeking out and asking for coaching.
My work included 1-1s with some senior directors and the biggest area of increase was in virtual coaching , particularly virtual coaching with small groups of staff / execs.
Virtual coaching is certainly more acceptable these days!
