The coaching excercise in class was very useful today. I realised how effective it can be. Brainstorming ways for problems I had not thought about was very useful. But while coaching its very important for the coach to gain empathy and not to judge the trainee or else the excercise wont work. The trainee might feel vulnerable and wont open up. What ever discussed should be confidential as well. This is to create a "Safe Environement".
I liked the grow principle. It is a very unique way of solving the problem.
Todays seminar topics were very interesting to discuss. I learnt a lot in terms of what I can do to make myself an effective leader. I really liked Team 3s idea of critical thinking. I also liked the idea of reading and learning and implementing leadership skills. Like Francisco said "Anyone can be a leader" :)
Is it unfair that one gets a good appraisal just because the person is good looking? It was discussed that goodlooking people could get a better appraisal just because the manager will be baised beacuse of their good looks. This is wrong...Can anyone suggest what can be done to solve this?? I wonder if this can be solved or not.
