Coaching, Leadership

Can You Teach an Old Dog New Tricks? By Pratap Nambiar.


Many leaders have forgotten that leadership is a process, not a position. Coaching them at the right time will help re-establish their sense of balance.

Leadership is a behavioural outcome of the interaction between a leader and followers in the context of a situation. Just having a title or position does not make us leaders. There is a great deal of learning that has to be internalised for leaders to be able to have the appropriate behaviours needed to make the most of any given situation.

Pratap Nambiar explains in the April issue of the Worldwide Coaching Magazine ,why old dogs need the help of a coach. To show them the link between their actions and the outcomes, but more importantly to build the link between the outcomes, actions, and their link to behaviours which originate from their thinking process.
