Today's coaching exercise
After witnessing the team toss the dice a few times and everyone eventually getting a partner, I was left standing alone. I eventually had to team up with someone else that was left over fro another team. I had four areas of improvement which were; communications, planning, time management, and decision making. I had the opportunity to listen to my team mates issues and advise on possible solutions to the best of my ability, and he in turn helped me out with my planning ( my ability to create plans but inabilty to follow through). I got some useful tips from him but I could not help wondering the essence of the coaching session. I was of the opinion that a coach was supposed to be more experienced in order to be able to effectively profer any solutions. I was a bit sceptical about the reliability of the help being offered espicially considering the fact that we had a couple of mutual problems. How would someone with the same persistent problems as mine possibly be capable of profering any sort of solution? That aspect of the exercise remains a mistery to me.
