Welcome to the field of potentiality

Written by Stuart Haden on February 26, 2015

My assumed role is to explore lots of different theories and sources of inspiration. Then I need to take these great pieces of work and simplify them for the people I work with. This video (3:25) is a great example of this. I take the theory of potentiality, and throw a few pebbles into the ocean to illustrate the application to our lives.

We can all create a few ripples with our intentions. What are you aiming to achieve? How much

Free workshop – It’s Not About The Coach

Written by Stuart Haden on February 24, 2015

I hope you spotted the blog from a couple of weeks ago about supporting my research and allowing me to run a free half day workshop based on my book (It’s Not About The Coach). This forms part of my latest research as I ‘translate’ the content of the book into an interactive workshop.

The sessions I have run over the last couple of weeks have proved beneficial for all. For example, one organisation I have worked with quickly realised that

Are you a symbol for the east and the west?

Written by Stuart Haden on February 19, 2015

The Tao Of Physics by Capra is a great introduction to both Eastern and Western approaches to our lives and work. In short, if you not drawing on both approaches you are missing a trick. Get them both right and people will think you are a magician. They will be under your spell, but there are no illusions here.

This short video (2:27) goes into some of the concepts in much more detail. In particular I pick up on the following

Free online course worth $79.99

Written by Stuart Haden on February 17, 2015

I thought I would get our New Years off with a bang by offering you free access to my online course The Art of Leadership and Management.

No strings attached – just 6 hours of great content at your disposal. But, once I hit 1,500 students I’ll close down this offer and the course will revert to its paid version. So hurry, and don’t be shy – spread the word so that others can get their resolutions off to a flying

Can you become bulletproof and reach a state of high performance?

Written by Stuart Haden on February 12, 2015

My stated aim is to hack authenticity and open source it for all – so that we can develop high performance in individuals, teams and organisations. The good news is I have discovered another one of the secrets of high performance, and it will leave you feeling bulletproof. So if you want to ‘supercharge your body and upgrade your brain’ then read on.

When I pose the question – what makes someone show up as being truly authentic? alignment often comes to mind. Walking the talk. But that’s just

It’s Not About The Coach – free workshop

Written by Stuart Haden on February 10, 2015

As many of you know I published my first book (It’s Not About The Coach) just over a year ago. When I wrote the book I interviewed 85 organisations, I want to apply a similar level of research now that I am designing the workshop content. This is why I am looking to connect with organisations so that I can run a free half day workshop and road test the session.

The aim of the workshop is to ensure that coachees can get the

Introducing – Nic Askew and Soul Biographies

Written by Stuart Haden on February 5, 2015

For over a year now I have signed up for Nic Askew’s Soul Biographies film of the week. What better way to start your Monday morning than ‘human spirit and emotion caught on Black & White Film‘. Nic and I share a passion for authenticity which was something I blogged about back in May – http://www.stormbeach.co.uk/blog/2014/05/21/smile-youre-candid-camera/

I asked Nic to contribute to a blog, exploring the question – what makes someone show up as being truly authentic? I was delighted when he came back

How ready do people need to be for coaching? (4 of 4)

Written by Stuart Haden on February 3, 2015

My last three postings have followed my journey in creating free online course (It’s Not About The Coach – 3 part INTRODUCTION). During this time I have really been interested in ascertaining how ready people need to be. What is the ideal level of readiness, can this be expressed as a percentage?

In order to find our starting point I gathered information from 27 organisations, it became clear that the average readiness for coaching is around the 40% mark. If the
