3D Juggling 592: Don’t work so hard!

Find out more about our Coaching Masterclasses starting by phone in January 2013 for people who have already done some coaching skills training.  There is still one space on 27th November at the Action Learning Set Facilitator Training in London. Would you like to join us?  

Claire writes: “Often when I listen to people talking about one to ones I want to say – ‘Don’t work so hard!’ The facilitator of the conversation – be it line manager or coach often takes more than their fair share of the responsibility.  We want our colleague or client to buy what we are saying.  And then we might say it again, or in another way just in case they didn’t!

Conversations work most effectively, I notice, when responsibility is shared appropriately.  And sometimes noticing something is enough.  Maurice Maeterlink said: “It is far more important that one’s life should be perceived than that it should be transformed; for no sooner has it been perceived, than it transforms itself of its own accord.”

Next time you’re in a conversation and find yourself working too hard, think about it…?”
