Zoom intimacy. #leadwithintegrityandgrace. We all have a primary need to belong, but the past 6 months have brought a degree of isolation not known before. We have all had to learn to communicate remotely and this has been very troublesome for many: Unable to hug and reach out for a handshake or receive a congratulatory slap on the back has been so difficult. Working without the immediacy of colleagues to seek advice from, or to collaborate with is super challenging.…

The interface between coaching and counselling.

https://youtu.be/jLD7ze6uBWw Coaching and counselling are close cousins, but where do they overlap? What do coaches need to be able to manage as they work with more mental health issues?

In the light of the tragedy that is playing out on across our land and world it is insignificant. I felt shame and guilt thinking I was making a fuss.
