It's almost 2021 - how exciting! If you are in the habit of focusing on next year's goals at the end of December, we're here to support you.
Our last Coaching Conversations of the year is all about reviewing 2021 and focusing on success for the year to come. Led by TCA Head of Training, Sharon Lawton, you too can work through this coaching framework with us if you missed joining us live.
If you are a TCA student or a qualified life coach, you know Stephen Covey's '7 Habits of Highly Successful People'. It's s a fantastic coaching framework so let's use it to get ready for 2021!
Here’s a reminder of these 7 habits
1. Be proactive
Take responsibility for your reaction to your experiences, take the initiative to respond positively, and improve the situation.
2. Begin with the end in mind
Envision what you want in the future so you can work and plan towards it.
3. First things first
Determine what is important and what is urgent.
4. Think win-win
Focus on mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships.
5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood
Use empathetic listening to genuinely understand a person first.
Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals that no one could have done alone
7. Sharpen the Saw
Balance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle. Through our conscience, along with meaningful and consistent progress, this will result in growth, change, and constant improvement.
Merry Christmas and joyful holidays from our CEO, Bev James and The Coaching Academy team.
