Leadership is a behavioural outcome of the interaction between a leader and followers in the context of a situation. Just having a title or position does not make us leaders. There is a great deal of learning that has to be internalised for leaders to be able to have the appropriate behaviours needed to make the most of any given situation.
Pratap Nambiar explains in the April issue of the Worldwide Coaching Magazine ,why old dogs need the help of a coach. To show them the link between their actions and the outcomes, but more importantly to build the link between the outcomes, actions, and their link to behaviours which originate from their thinking process.
Successful CEOs know that, to keep their companies growing, competence must be accompanied by a new consciousness
An adaptive challenge represents a set of problems – dilemmas that seemingly cannot be resolved, yet which must be resolved if one is to move up to the next level of performance.
It is necessary to adapt to the changing circumstances, to the increasing level of complexity, and dig deep to find the inner strength to overcome new challenges that have not been faced before.
What makes it difficult to deal with adaptive challenges is that, most often, you do not realise you are facing one; and even if you do, you do not have an adequate response because you are not prepared. Pratap is grabbing the bull by its horns and shows you how to prepare yourself in this month’s issue of the Worldwide Coaching Magazine.

As a coach, you know how people learn and develop. You’ve made it your business, if not your mission, to help people realize their full potential. You bring unique skills and insight to every coaching conversation. But is it enough?
We human beings are creatures of habit. If we don’t actively infuse our coaching practice with fresh learning and new tools, our style and energy can become stale and routine. It’s not that we lack commitment; in fact, our client’s may still be enjoying unprecedented results, but the journey may not be the sensory, self-development adventure it should be.

Young people in athletics have an advantage over their fellow classmates. That advantage simply is “a coach.” These sport coaches work to condition the physical sports’ talents of the high school students and more importantly work to condition their mental talents or attitudes.
In sports, youth leadership becomes the norm, the best practice. Young people recognise that their mental capacity must exceed their physical capability. And yet how many young people never have this opportunity to learn the necessary self-leadership talents now being demanded more and more by employers?

Executives out of their element
This article by Jim Michaels in USA Today describes a training scenario to enhance ethical decision making in the workplace.

- At Quantico, executives are put to the test in front-line scenarios
- Instructors are officers who served in Iraq and Afghanistan
The author of this article is Jim Michaels, a former Marine who has covered wars around the world. He is author of the book A Chance in Hell: The Men who Triumphed over Iraq’s Deadliest City and Turned the Tide of War.
