Words make big things small
“How do I know what I am thinking until I’ve said it” said a very good friend of mine during a coaching session. She was coaching me and I asked her how she felt about something I had said.
And that is the one point from this blog. That words are the very essence of thought. And if you don’t have the opportunity to say them or write them down, then you are at risk of losing the value of any given thought.
Loneliness is such a drag*
In any business role we are lonely. Whether it is the CEO or the admin clerk. Loneliness in the business sense is tangible. It has an impact. That feeling of loneliness can bring with it a whole heap of issues. We become anxious about what others think, what they are saying about us and our abilities.
The answer is straightforward – develop a coaching culture where people can speak out their thoughts. An open, free ranging, time to talk and listen.
Productivity will increase, engagement will increase and well being will soar.
