A Step Away from Tech and a Step into a Kevin Eikenberry Coaching Session

A few weeks ago I was provided the opportunity to attend a Leadership Development series where Kevin Eikenberry was one of the speakers where he focused on coaching. Actually, Kevin was more of a facilitator of thought versus a traditional speaker. During this short session he was able to get the attendees to compile the following on coaching.

Coaching in 6 Words

  • Teaching Others To Achieve Best Results

  • Inspiring ongoing mutual development (individually/others)

In addition to the excellent content above on coaching, Kevin provide several memorable quotes which are listed below.

  • Developing Others – One Competency of Remarkable Leaders
  • Motivation is internal. We choose to make the decision.
  • To be world class a coach does not mean you have to be the best at everything.
  • People see their weaknesses most of the time versus focussing on their strengths as well. Build upon on your strengths while working on your weaknesses.
  • Coach people you believe in. If you don’t then you won’t be successful.
  • Make sure you provide specific positive and negative feedback.
  • To be a good coach help others see their potential.
I have been following Kevin on Twitter  (@kevineikenberry) for several years and have always loved the content that he provides on leadership with his feed.  I was completely impressed at his ability to get the group to participate in this coaching session and highly recommend that everyone attend one Kevin’s sessions is provided the opportunity.
