He finds himself saying things like “Oh, I know the budget isn’t where it should be”.  Or “Oh, I understand we do have a lot of projects on the table.”  His frustration lies in the fact that while the excuses keep coming, the results stay the same. Things aren’t getting done on time.

More importantly, what do gifted coaches teach us about managing people more effectively and helping them reach peak professional performance?  We took a look at the some habits of great athletic coaches and found that managers can approach employee development in many of the same ways.

Developing an Untethered Personality

October 13, 2016 | MHS | HCI

Have you ever experienced arguing strongly for an issue and for what you called undeniable facts only later to discover you were entirely wrong?  Have you ever had an emotional reaction to a situation and you said or reacted in a way which was entirely out of your control and you later regretted?  Have you ever met someone for the first time and instantaneously greatly disliked (or liked) and had no rationale or explicit reason for the reaction?
