7/28/15 - Put on Your Coaching Glasses

One significant stage in human development is recognizing that others can, and often do, have different perspectives. This realization usually (/hopefully) comes at a young age, when we realize that our world is being shared with other people who have their own version of the tale.

In addition to this stage in development is another even more advanced stage. It’s in this stage that we not only understand that others can have different perspectives, but we can put ourselves “in their shoes” so to speak. Being able to displace your own perspective and take on the point of view of another is key for a deeper level of understanding.

Try this. Take at look at your training not through your point of view, but through the point of view of your coach. What would he/she say about your progress? What would he/she say are your strengths? Weaknesses? Are these different than your views of yourself?

Sometimes we’re more honest and helpful for ourselves if we put our mind in someone else’s shoes. Good luck!
