Lessons I learned from coaching:
– I discovered the difference between being an Efficient Manager and an Effective Leader.
– I realized I did not ‘cross function’ my tool kit. Tools I used quite efficiently in one scenario were not being applied everywhere they could be. I had to understand why I did NOT apply learned tools to other situations, and discovered a few areas I needed to adjust my thinking.
– I have learned to see the big picture and prioritize; to ‘be tenacious and optimistic in good and bad times’; to remember Health and Life before Business. That I am a person who performs a function – I am not ‘the function.’
