I wrote an article for the OD/Leadership Network News May Issue. My topic was about how our tendency to control gets in the way of our ability to provide great coaching. Check my article, and several other great coaching articles, out here. My favorite quote from the article:
not easy to resist the allure of elocution when a senior executive
looks at you with eager eyes and asks a question. Many of us love to
stand up, talk extemporaneously, and draw impressive diagrams on
whiteboards while getting high on the attention and the marker fumes.
