Demonstration Coaching Builds Courageous Leadership

Inspiration

The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost


  • New directions
  • Find opportunities
  • Make a difference

Rationale

  • People cannot do what they cannot envision;

  • People will not do what they do not believe is possible;

  • People will not implement what they do not understand;

  • People are unlikely to do well what they do not practice;

  • People who practice without feedback don’t progress efficiently;

  • People who work without collaboration are unlikely to sustain their effort.


Leaders must help people envision, believe, understand, practice, receive feedback, and work collaboratively!
