I’d like to write a book one day…

Written by Stuart Haden on February 4, 2014

Would you? But, why not now? I am not sure how it might end for you, but I know how you can start. You’ve got some post-it notes to hand, right? Great – grab them and write up headings/chapters/characters/places etc. Placed them somewhere, where they can be left for sometime. You might feel like a fake, but you have now started to write your book. This is how my book (It’s Not About The Coach) began for me…

 

And this is

Why most change initiatives fail

Written by Stuart Haden on January 21, 2014

Simply put most change initiatives only have one starting point. They actually need two starting points. A channel of change, acting as a buffer on either side to navigate the rocky landscape.

A great overarching aim of change is to achieve freedom. A client of mine described that once we implement the chosen tools and techniques they will be free from certain activities. Wow! I realised I was actually selling freedom. But, as this short video (2:41) describes freedom has two

NY’s resolutions need a revolution

Written by Stuart Haden on January 13, 2014

We are a few weeks in to the New Year already. Have you set any resolutions? Are the resolutions you’ve set already starting to stall? If the answer to either of these questions is no then read on! I’ve never been a massive fan of resolutions, but this year I have been drawn to them – mainly down to the two resources I refer to in this posting. This short (5:25) video from Jeff Walker (a product launch guru) details rituals,

It’s Not About The Coach – goals

Written by Stuart Haden on December 16, 2013

To celebrate the fact that my publisher is running a price promotion for the last two weeks of December (It’s Not About The Coach is available as an ebook for 0.99 across all currencies) I thought I’d send out a series of free videos. Here is number 3 of 3 – goals….

Coachee needs to turn the conversation with the coach into actionable goals.

Analyse what is required, yet remain open to the application.

In this reading I cite the example of Sarah and Steve,

Written by Stuart Haden on December 9, 2013

To celebrate the fact that my publisher is running a price promotion for the last two weeks of December (It’s Not About The Coach is available as an ebook for 0.99 across all currencies) I thought I’d send out a series of free videos. Here is number 2 of 3 – curiosity….

To find your authentic self as a coachee, you really need to reflect on your experience and maybe highlight moments in your life that influenced you. Recognise your inner

Written by Stuart Haden on November 28, 2013

After 5 year of research, writing and hard work my book It’s Not About The Coach is finally due for release on Friday 29th of November!

If you have liked the free content that I have shared in the last three postings (possibilities, perception, & performance videos) then the book of course goes even deeper. I have now filled the much needed gap to provide the required support (and challenge) for coachees who are considering coaching as means of self development. The book

It’s Not About The Coach launches 29th November – performance

Written by Stuart Haden on November 26, 2013

Once the coachee has considered possibilities, changed perception, it is now time to challenge performance. This is the most obvious indicator for a successful coachee and coaching relationship.

Asking yourself the question – who are you being? Who are you being on the inner. Who are you being on the outer.

This short reading describes how your language, emotions and body are all indicators of performance. Have you found your centre? Have you slowed down so you can see the world in

It’s Not About The Coach launches 29th November – perception

Written by Stuart Haden on November 19, 2013

Once the coachee has started to work with possibilities, it is now time to move on and consider perception. Knowledge and our understanding is underpinned by this perception.

Truth, belief and justification. What you thought to be true when you were assessing possibilities, might have shifted for you now.

As this short reading from my book demonstrates, the best question you can ask yourself right now is – how do you know what you know?

It’s Not About The Coach is published on 29th
