First, I would like to thank my readers for following my blog about executive coaching. Every blog post I write forces me to think deeply about how coaching should be practiced. I undoubtedly get more out of writing my blog posts than the reader gets from reading them. As I have said many times, whoever does the heavy lifting gets the most benefit. I believe I am a better coach as a result.
When I began blogging about my book, Executive Coaching and the Process of Change, my goal was to elaborate on its content for one year. I am approaching the end of that year. I will write three more blog posts related to my book: one on coaching innovation, another on coaching to influence “upstairs,” and my final blog on how long a coaching assignment should last.
My plan going forward is to transform my blog into an interactive dialogue with my readers. I am asking my readers to send me their coaching questions, challenges, and experiences. I will respond to these requests in the context of my coaching model and process, which are dedicated to behavioral change. I will continue to write a weekly blog post under the new domain name of “askcoachalan.com.” You can begin sending me your coaching questions, challenges, and experiences to my new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you and taking on this new challenge of creating an interactive dialogue about executive coaching.
