Hope Is Beyond You

Hope is the belief that the future is better and there’s a way to get there. Blake, my 9 year-old son, sitting in the front seat of the car, staring out the window said, “Dad, when I grow up, I want to be a Coach like you… and travel with you.” I don’t tell you this so you’ll think I am a great Dad.  I’ll be honest; I have my doubts.  Not in Blake, but in what I’m giving him.  You probably know this from raising kids – it’s so day-to-day that it’s easy to feel lost in it.  Sometimes I find myself thinking, “What am I doing?

Some of the hardest people to coach...

Not Listening To Me

“What gets in the way of you listening?” I asked a group of executives, “Of you being present and focused on the person you’re with?” They were really honest, “Wondering what time it is. Thinking about what I’m going to say next. Relating what the person is saying to me. Deciding if what they’re saying is right or wrong. Planning the next thing on my schedule. People watching.” In the middle of all this, a man in his fifties said, “Me… I get in the way of listening to people” So much happens in our minds when people are talking to us, unfortunately so little of it has to do with...
