In order to set our teams (and children) up for success when faced with a task or project, it’s important to communicate clear expectations. Helping them to know what good looks like before they start will allow them to thrive within the guardrails we set.
Did you know that all of us are born with a creative gene? Literally that means that everyone has the ability to be creative. Then why do so many people think they can't be creative? In today’s podcast Bethany shares the power of coaching our teams and children in creativity--there's a creative inside of everyone of us.
One of the keys to coaching others, including our children, is allowing them to find solutions to problems and challenges they face. As a coach, its easy to step into that role of being “the fixer”; always having the answer. As a continuous improvement coach, Bethany shares the value of allowing others to lean into their struggle and find their answers—developing powerful people with powerful solutions.
As a leader, whether in business, a high school coach, or church ministry lead, we can easily get in the habit of problem-solving and bringing solutions all by ourselves. It may seem quicker and easier. But is it going to have the buy-in and sustainability from the people doing the work, or the teams we are coaching? In this week's podcast, Bethany shares the value of bringing the whole team to the table to be innovative, creative, and tap into the energy needed to reach our goals and accomplish the mission!
It can be a challenge to be the same exceptional people that we model at work, on the job, as we are at home. As soon as we walk through the door at home, why is it a challenge to actively listen, to be present, to be gracious; when we can do it so well with our boss and co-workers? In this week's podcast, Bethany shares her struggles with being the same exceptional person behind closed doors; its time to be exceptional in those same skills and qualities at home!
