Coaching for Association Leaders with John Scarrott

How are you? How’s your leadership holding up? How are you showing up for your team, your members, your board and the wider community? And is this leading to the action that will enable you, your people and your organisation to make it through these tricky times? Things might be going well and you want to keep them that way. Or perhaps you’re facing things for which there are no easy answers. And some situations that are downright impossible.

The possibility that comes from a willingness to explore, to be listened to and to hear yourself clearly, and to be given the space to find ways forward, however bleak the circumstances. It is in finding and exploring possibility that we can discover the magic to manage the trick.

Coaching for possibility

Working with a coach, is an invitation to invest in yourself for a change. Coaching is a conversation. A conversation within a safe and confidential space for you to speak, and be heard, by your coach and by yourself. It’s the space to think, speak and feel your way into topics where you don’t already know the answer, to get comfortable with that and to explore possibilities.

What happens is purposeful. It’s an invitation to pause to discover and become alive to something previously overlooked. In the high speed of your day to day, perhaps the desire for answers beats the desire for questions and curiosity. Yet it is often when we make the space to pause, to create questions and curiosity, that we take ourselves to the very answer we’re looking for. This is your opportunity to travel.
