Great Coaching Questions (For Self or Others)

Bob Tiede is a leadership expert out of Plano, Texas, who writes a blog called, “Leading with Questions“. This is one of the best leadership blogs I know of. In Bob’s newsletter this week he shares some of his favorite questions which I’ve excerpted below. (And by the way, the follow-up question “What else?  or Tell me more?” is one of my secret weapons. I’ve used it to great effect over the years.)

1.  What’s going well?

2.  What’s not going well?

3.   Where are you stuck?

4.   What needs to change?

What do you think?

Sometimes the best input comes from the 3rd time you ask, “what else?”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

1.  What is your impossible dream?

2.  What would you have to do to make your dream possible?

20 Common Leadership Blindspots (and How to Fix Them)

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are?

It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career.

Robert Bruce Shaw in his new book, Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter, describes the 20 most common blindspots he’s seen while working as an executive coach to hundreds of professionals. He’s found that unseen weaknesses arise in four areas: self, team, company and markets.

Why Pepsi’s CEO Writes To Her Employees’ Parents

We’ve all heard about the value of writing thank you notes to our employees (Doug Conant being a role model having sent 30,000 handwritten notes to employees while he was CEO of Campbell Soup Company). I’ve written previously about the US Marine Corps’ tradition of including family members in promotion ceremonies.

But should you write notes to your employees’ parents—or even call them on the phone?

Reaching out to your employees’ parents is precisely what PepsiCo CEO, Indra Nooyi, thinks you should do. Normally an idea like this would be easy to dismiss, but when it’s offered by the executive named by Forbes as one of the ten most powerful women on the planet, we should probably take note.
