Leadership Coaching Tip

Russ Volckmann

In working with executives around attunement, there are a myriad of potential openings to explore. Ultimately, the executive must choose which to follow. As a coach, however, it is important to support the executive in exploring them. In the case of attunement, openings will include attention to issues of identity, such as values and beliefs about being a team player. As executives explore these, support them to look not just from their own point of view, but also from the perspective of their leadership system. Executives may shift from being subject to these assumptions toward holding them as object. This is a significant developmental step that opens possibilities they would not have seen otherwise.
