What’s Your Why? Mine for #EthicalCoach #Ethiopia

What’s your why, your purpose, your organization’s purpose, and how do they match? I coach leaders and coaches to get clear about their purpose and how it aligns with organizational purpose. When we are clear about our purpose, vision and values, decision making (and life) becomes easier.

Saying yes to being part of the EthicalCoach Ethiopia Leadership Coaching Summit Global Coaching Team was easy for me based on our shared purpose, vision and values.

My vision is for all to have the opportunity to live up to their full potential, to be prosperous, to live in peace.

Prosperity goes beyond simply […]

How to Boost Prosperity by Reducing Bullying & Power Misuse

The organizational cost of bullying is $188,136 for a single, pre-escalated conflict, using the Dana Measure. “As a leader or human resources professional you spend 25-40% of your time managing complaints…conflict that can escalate to costly lawsuits. ‘In fact, 60-80% of all difficulties in organizations come from strained relationships among employees.'” Breaking Free from Bias: Preventing Costly Complaints, Conflict and Talent Loss p. 7

Do not let this be you or your organization! Bullying and misuse of power can pop up even in organizations committed to the greater good. Their positive push to support and protect the under-resourced can shift from assertiveness […]

Harnessing the Power of Vision in Unlocking Potential, Prosperity & Peace + New Invitation for Coaches

Marilyn O’Hearne here today talking about the power of vision in unlocking potential, prosperity and peace. We know that vision really is a powerful agent for energizing and inspiring people and moving people and organizations forward. Vision is defined as a desired future and potential is also about developing that capacity for the future; becoming the person or the organization that we can be.

They are both future oriented and very energizing, so what gets in the way of harnessing vision to unlock potential, prosperity and peace? We know one block can be not having […]

How to Use Intuition to Keep Your Competitive Edge and Potentially Save Your Business

Hi Marilyn O’Hearne with weekly wisdom. Why use intuition? In our world of information bombardment, the ability to make quick decisions leading to desired results is crucial. The capacity to quickly size up a situation and recognize the best course of action without analyzing is intuition. That rapid, 2 second decision making can be life- and business- saving and provide a competitive edge, 
as Malcolm Gladwell wrote in Blink, and gave firefighters as an example.

Consider when things have not gone well and the cause may have been not following intuition or failing to communicate it.

Blink“: quickly check in with […]

Splash or Slap in the Face? How to use CQ Direct Communication to Shift Perspectives

“Time to update your self-image!” came across like a refreshing splash of cool water, an invigorating wake up call, rather than a slap in the face to one of my Leadership Coaching clients. Being groomed to move up the corporate ladder, his earlier image of himself was getting in the way of success.  His 360 Assessment results showed a clear mismatch between his self-image and how others saw him.

In this case, others saw this leader in much more positively than he did himself. While his need to update his image to […]

How to Deliver Powerful Feedback Results by Combining the “Lion and the Lamb”

“You seek a culture of trust, yet you do not trust yourself. How will you establish trust with yourself?”  Startled to hear “you do not trust yourself”? I delivered this “Compassionate Edge” Direct Communication Feedback to a Leadership Coaching Client. She wanted to establish a culture of trust in her office with the goal of her staff following through with their commitments, yet was not living up to her own commitments to herself.

What made this direct communication feedback compassionate? Speaking from my heart.  I really do care about and want the best for the Executives, Leaders and Coaches I […]

How to Successfully Communicate while Uncertain

We celebrate freedom in the US. Yet in our VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) World, we are not free of ambiguity. We crave certainty, clarity, directness (some personalities and cultures more than others). Stepping into leadership, as a leader or a coach, requires increasing tolerance for and skills with dealing successfully with ambiguity (Ambiguity= murky, foggy, unclear).

Imagine your organization is in the process of merging with another organization. Or is downsizing. Or the new CEO has announced an upcoming reorganization. Productivity and profitability need to stay in place, while expectations are in flux and employees (maybe even you!) are unsure of […]
