In the swim of things: my latest article in Coaching at Work
Some of my coaching clients have difficulty keeping their balance in their organisational cultures – as though they’re struggling to stand upright in the current of a stream. This is typically when in some way they’re not aligned with the values or behaviours that surround them: their difficulty lies in being different (which may be why they were recruited in the first place: to bring in fresh blood). And yet it could be career-threatening for them to speak their truth.
I can find myself watching a client become increasingly stressed in an environment which appears unlikely to change. Exploring belonging and enabling compassion, while I stand back in a deeply-connected way, offer a way forward.
