Leadership Coaching Tip

April 2002 / Leadership Coaching Tips

When coaching executives who are encountering frustration with other leaders and collective activities like meetings, recognize that there are several levels related to those experiences. At the base is the way commitment engages with purpose through group membership, competence engages with resources in a leadership organization of contributors, innovation engages with inspiration through players on a team, and connection engages with leadership vitality as entrepreneurs promote a leadership enterprise. They are holarchic in that a weakness in one undermines experience at levels above. Use that perspective to move past symptoms in search of root causes–and potential solutions.
