  • Great video I've not seen this before Hayley.

    I'll start things off then:

    The opening 40 seconds made me shiver. Total lack of communication and involvement in the arrangement of a 'coaching session'. A very assumptive and arrogant approach I felt "I'm going to be your coach" indicating he had all the answers for this chap.

    Within the first 40 seconds he interrupted and spoke over this poor chap not giving him the the opportunity to finish what he was saying or explain himself fully.

    I'll stop there and this was only the first 40 seconds!

    • Thanks Bob

      You could literally write a dissertation on what goes wrong in the video! So thanks for leaving some of the points for every one else to find :) 

      Absolutely agree with you on the issues you raise. I wonder if it is symptomatic of a long history of hierarchical cultures in organisations, that the idea of giving control/power to the coaching subject might seem alien to a character like Mr Red Jumper man. A good coach listens actively and recognises the power of giving people the space to explore and find their own answers.

      Does anyone else have any thoughts?
