Moving Beyond High Performance Coaching
to Provoking Greatness
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
Henry David Thoreau
Do you want to uncover the blind spots that stop you from getting the results you want in your career, and within your team? Would you like to know if something isn’t right before you get blindsided? Perhaps it’s something that you’re not hearing (because people aren’t telling you), and it is silently destroying your ability to lead powerfully. We think that by doing more we’ll get there faster. But, where is there? And why does it matter?
By helping you refocus on what really matters to you, a space is created for your ideas to flow, energy to surge, and courage to grow stronger. By helping you see the value inherent in the feedback you get every day, you gain access to the truth of who you are being. Such truth can lead to radical breakthroughs in passion, creativity, and motivation.
The “should’ing” stories we tell ourselves—who you should be, what you should be doing, and what you should believe—make it impossible to hear your own authentic V.O.I.C.E. Through challenging questions, you get to see where your true power lies—within yourself.
Finding The “Why” Framework
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
I believe that companies get stuck because the person at the helm has lost sight of “the what” and “why” of its mission. Instead, they become constrained by comfort. “I created a kick ass brand, and now I’m going institute a bunch of rules to protect what I’ve created,” they unconsciously think.
Such focus is a recipe for ego-induced thinking that cripples our courage, destroys teamwork, creativity, and passion for all people involved. It instigates competition between team members. In the end, someone must win and often it’s at the expense of the customer.
More often than not, it’s by slowing down, tuning into your self-awareness, and checking your ego at the door that allows for great leaders to grow faster and inspire others to dream bigger, work harder, and remain fully engaged in their contributions to the company, the community, and to the world.
Are You Ready?
Executive Director at Wide Angle Youth Media
Through the power of listening and summarizing situations, Misti has an uncanny way of motivating not just you but your whole team!
Leaders who benefit the most from this coaching are senior executives and leaders who are ready to improve results by re-igniting their own energy, passion, enthusiasm, and that of their employees. They appreciate being challenged and typically lack this type of feedback because of their level within the organization.
Through a series of thought-provoking questions, I will take you through a process that leads to the emergence of the truth behind some of the most pressing challenges in leadership today – across generations, departments and traditional levels of leadership. With a refreshingly direct approach, you will get candid feedback, honesty, and access to breakthrough ideas that spark creativity, communication, and collaboration across your team.
We strongly recommend you to assess your “Provokability” first and get started with Gearing For Greatness.
