On February 18th The Wallace Centers of Iowa hosted leadership expert Tabby Hinderaker the Purposeful Growth Coach to share insights about coaching. Those who attended enjoyed an amazing lunch prepared by our own Chef Katie.
After the meal, participants experienced what it is like to ask questions that support another person’s learning. Alternatively, participants had a chance to experience being coached. Participants commented:
“I was nervous about asking the right question, however being more aware of the other person made it easier”
“I was surprised by new insights.”
“I can see why coaching is powerful.”
“The way the person framed the questions helped me see my goal in a new way.”
The idea of coaching people to develop emerging leaders is relevant to the needs of the workplace. In a recent post, 4-Tips for Developing Millennial Leaders Now! we reported that according the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the 18-33 year old generation became the largest in the workforce and will grow by 30% in the next 5 years. A coaching mindset is the key to all four tips highlighted in that post.
Join us for the next Leadership and Civility Lunch which will include thoughts from leadership expert Kevin Pokorny.
The Seeds of Civility is a blog that is created by The Wallace Centers of Iowa. Here we gather tips and tools for leading with civility.
