Authenticity and Coaching

This is a short blog post for the Coaching Connections session tomorrow on authenticity. At the start of the session we will be getting some clarity about what authenticity means to us as coaches and in our work.

Here are three quotes which will be shared to get us thinking:

“Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else” Judy Garland

“Change occurs when one becomes what he is, not when he tries to become what he is not” Arnold Beisser

“This is authenticity; being ourselves without fear or compromise in all circumstances, at all times” Neil Crofts

Clarity is the first step of a five step team coaching model called CEFAR, which I designed a couple of years ago, to help individuals learn from peers, share ideas and gain new perspectives. At the workshop tomorrow we’ll be moving through the five steps of the model from Clarity to Engaging, then to Feedback and finally Action and Review.

More about authenticity and the CEFAR model after our Coaching Connections session tomorrow!
