Achieving Long term Positive Changes In Behavior
I’ve recently discovered a resource with a goldmine of relevant wisdom and practical applications, Marshall Goldsmith. Known world wide as the top Executive Coach, he’s down to earth, and fun to listen to as well.
I’ve recently read Marshal’s book, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There” and have already incorporated a ton of his principles and methodology into my own coaching practice. In this short video he shares one of these effective initiatives for change. In fact, this topic fits with my current blogging series on how to move up the 5 levels of leadership, in that to maintain influence you have to mitigate stubborn, opinionated behavior. Ideally getting rid of it completely. And I’m sharing this because I believe it’s something you too can take advantage of.
Your Coaching Action Plan:
So, let me ask you, if the Generals in the United States Army can handle being confronted on their stubborn, opinionated ways, do you think it could assist you to change as well? Find someone that will make this method of change stick, and follow this recipe for change. If you can’t, it might be time to hire a coach. Humm . . . something to think about.
