In a previous life when I was designing HR people processes, a key component of most Performance Development Processes (PD) was to have regular coaching conversations throughout the operational year. Leaders and their staff agreed that this leadership activity was essential. So, no conflict there!

The role of a Leadership today is viewed very differently compared to a generation ago. In the last 20 years a new way of looking at leadership has emerged which views leadership as much more complex. However, irrespective of how operating environments have changed, I still see leaders behaving in ways today that are similar to how I was managed (good and bad) and it makes me wonder about what those great managers/leaders did, and would they still be effective today.ability, accelerator, administer, agility, anything, asked, authentic, aware, behaviour, boss, calm, change, changeleading, clarity, communication, connected, continue, conversations, courage, created, david, days, deep, development, differently, effective, emotional, enthused, environments, everyone, expertise, face, greater, growing, help, human, important, individuals, informed, inspired, intelligence, job, journey, leaders, leadership, leading, learning, level, listenedhe, manage, moods, nash, operated, organisation, personal, positive, power, presence, pressurised, ray, really, role, self-assessment, share, specific, supported, team, teamhe, think, today, tool, value, views, widely, work
Since conversations consume so much of our time, it’s worth trying to improve them.

The Elephant in the Room is an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth or problem that is going unaddressed, that no one wants to discuss. It is applicable when a subject is emotionally charged and the people who might have spoken up decide that it is probably best avoided.addresses, affect, avoids, begin, best, bring, communication, contributes, conversation, courage, discuss, dynamics, elephant, enables, everyone, face, feeling, gets, going, important, insights, issue, kantor, lead, level, listed, needed, outcome, people, person, powerful, preoccupied, quality, questions, really, recognises, reflect, response, risks, room, saying, situation, start, subject, test, theory, thinking, unaddressed, voicing, wants
