Jill Malleck Leadership CoachHelping Leaders Flourish During Change

Whether the business/work challenge you face is yours alone as a leader, or one that you share with others, sometimes your best solution is to find an experienced and trained professional to come alongside. Based in the work of Ken Wilber, our integrally-informed approach takes a broad and inclusive stance, working on both vertical and horizontal development, or what we call  “Growing Up” and “Waking Up”.

Introducing CoachingOurselves – An Additional Approach for Extending Team Capabilities

I’m excited to announce my partnership with CoachingOurselves – a small-group, reflective approach to management development that fits perfectly with my Integral Coaching method for teams. From years of experience, I’ve discovered that teams that learn together become more cohesive and more effective. Contact me to learn more.

Helping Leaders Flourish During Change

I choose to work with leaders and their teams because I have seen how this can make a significant, positive impact in the world. Our work lives are a vehicle to bring our highest potential forward, to create the best of what we dream of, and to engage with others. They can, and should be, a place where we flourish.

Increase Accountability

Holding others accountable. It’s often easier said than done. One executive says she wants to see more accountability, at all levels, in the company and she can’t understand why deadlines are regularly missed.

What’s the deal? Are we really recruiting people who seem committed, only to have them lose interest once signed on?

Exploring Impatience at Work

Leaders and I are exploring the topic of impatience this week. One finds himself getting almost belligerent when others slow him down with self-evident (to him) questions. Another hides her impatience (she thinks) while her tone gets brisker, colder and more formal. What makes you impatient, and how useful to the work is your response? Left unnoticed, impatience can quickly turn to outsized anger.

In Full Span Coaching we are interested in putting our insights to work.

4 Steps to Move from Insight to Action

Hint: Being brilliant isn’t enough.

Just knowing how to do something doesn’t mean you can do it. Many brilliant leaders struggle to learn how to embody the traits to which they aspire. Think about the difference between knowing and doing. You can read a book about sailing, sit and watch someone else do it, even practice in a safe harbour – but until you steer the craft safely through a storm you’d hardly call yourself a sailor.

Insight doesn’t equal action.

Here’s how to show empathy

Many of the leaders I coach are so focused on their work, and the attainment of goals, that they forget to “see” the people delivering the results. Others say they are cold, aloof, uncaring or worse – scary, brutal, a jerk to work with. Yet, typically, it’s a lack of attention to the skills of interpersonal relations that’s the problem. Layer on natural introversion and a desire to stick-to-the-facts, and you can see how some successful business leaders end up with only reluctant followers.
