Leadership Coaching Tip

Russ Volckmann

Clearly, our capacities for seeing and understanding different worldviewsand action logics, much less be able to strategize from those perspectives, is a function of our integral development. Cognitively, we can learn to recognize the signs and symbols (and symptoms?) of various levels of development along multiple streams. A challenge in coaching executives is to first, help them recognize streams and levels within themselves and then be able to translate that into comprehending others.  But the capabilities and capacities for doing this will not be the same for everyone or for all contexts. Ultimately, the executive, not the coach, must determine what is important.
