If you had told me two weeks ago that I would be able to fit FIVE HOURS of outstanding coach training webinars into my jam-packed schedule, I wouldn’t have believed you.
You know the feeling. Over-booked, under-supported, give, give give.
How can you take time for your own coach training when it’s go-go-go-all-day-long? Where’s the me-time?
Is that tired old adage actually true? The shoemakers children never have shoes?
Coaches never have time to focus on their own professional development because they are so busy helping everyone else with theirs?
Say it ain’t so!
Good news. It ain’t so!
It can be done! Fitting your own coach training into your week is possible. I did it.
And (I almost hate to say it) but getting to FIVE live training sessions in a week was much easier than I thought it was going to be.
If you’ve been reading my recent posts, you’ll know that I have been attending the online World Business and Executive Coaches Pre-Summit. It’s geared to Coaches, but there are plenty of sessions that everyone can learn from.
You also know I’ve been keeping you up to date on all the great free stuff that is available through the WBECS Pre-Summit.
Well, I’ve just found another fantastic tool that is really outstanding. On Monday, I attended Liz Kislik’s session, How to Help Someone Lead from the Middle.
Wow. It was professional, engaging, and extremely informative. I learned a lot.
As a special pre-summit speaker gift, Liz has provided an excellent 45 page free resource that you can download and learn from right away.
It’s called How to Resolve Interpersonal Conflicts in the Workplace. Who among us couldn’t use a few tips on that???
You’ll love this because you will see that:
- You don’t have to give up on new opportunities and growth when employees don’t get along!
- Instead of hoping that people will figure out how to work together on their own, you can call a halt to the waste and discomfort that comes from interpersonal conflict on the job.
- In this resource, you’ll get road-tested techniques for recovering damaged relationships, strengthening communication, and changing employees’ thinking about conflict.

I hope you enjoy the insights! If you haven’t yet registered for the WBECS Pre-Summit, there is still time (and plenty of sessions).
Next week I am attending Jennifer Britton’s session Virtualizing Your Conversations and Annie McKee’s session Becoming a Resonant Leader.
To be completely honest (while not trying to sound too bookish), I’ve been enjoying this learning so much that I am still looking for more to wedge into my calendar.
Why not come join me?
You can still take advantage of the Pre-Summit by registering here!
Oh, and yes, you really do have time 😉
