Today we speak with David and learn one of the most powerful tools a leader can ever have, “self-as-instrument”.
Many leaders and coaches want cutting-edge methodologies, exercises, and information, which are all extremely important. However, the most overlooked but most vital tool that the most successful leaders and coaches use is the unique understanding of who they are and what they bring to the table. A lot of help just isn’t helpful, and today we discuss how to help others in a way that maximizes the efficacy of your leadership and coaching.
Learn about natural leadership, humans as animals, and how people respond to pressure. We also discuss the four types of awareness and how, whether we are conscious of it or not, these levels of awareness actually guide us in our daily lives.
