My previous roles were about giving direction and advising; my way, my opinion, my expertise. I have learned that coaching is an effective way to get a person from Point A to Point B and letting people be part of the process. While I may still advise and direct, the class transformed my ability to co-creatively involved others in the process. When I am willing and able to do this, we reach a better outcome. We are greater than the sum of our parts.
