"Exactly how Kai Boyd describes the basic problem in approaching difficult conversations is how I have approached them so far. My perspective is the right one and I have to convince my counterpart what he has done wrong and get him to do it better and in my sense. Unfortunately, too often a one-way street. With the clear framework of the 3 level strategy I could directly solve a conflict and avoid the hardening of fronts. The training is authentic, entertaining and has good exercises that reinforce what was taught."

Leadership means creating conditions in which co-workers can develop their full potent

The first step in this is to get to know your team members as well as possible, which is achieved through active listening.Which questioning techniques have you had particularly good experiences with?

Secondly: those who use their personal strengths are more efficient, more motivated, more successful and more resistant to stress; ask about these strengths in development meetings and redistribute tasks accordingly.

Which strengths in the team surprised you?

Thirdly: Psychological safety— the conviction that you can take interpersonal risks in a team — is central to performing well.

  • How have you strengthened psychological safety in your team?
  • For example, what has been your experience with the Positive Gossip exercise?
Empowerment Leadership

Fifth: Empathy is a key competency for leaders; it breaks down into emotional, cognitive, and social empathy.

What has been your experience with this lesson? Which empathy type do you feel is a particular strength of yours?

Sixth: Modern leadership thrives on the personal responsibility of co-workers; if tasks are delegated, it is important to clearly define the desired degree of freedom, from prescribing all steps to handing over responsibility.

Which degree of freedom works best for you (and your team)?

Seventh: If you want to lead like a coach, you need to consider three strategies: offering support only when the co-worker is ready for it, clearly naming the supporter role, and adapting your own input to the person’s needs.

What experiences have you had with coaching approaches to leadership?
