Saw "Take The Lead"-ballroom dance teacher teaches at-risk youth self-esteem & mutual respect through the discipline of dance. I’m no Antonio Banderas, but thought this sounded alot like the coaching experience.
He describes how one leads & the other CHOOSES to follow & share in the journey. As a coach, I play both roles. The most important role is that of one who follows, giving support & encouragement. My coaching client leads – the focus is on her needs, not mine.
I’ve taken ballroom-not for very long-but working together toward a goal using a step-by-step process makes me think of how I treat my coaching clients!
Great movie, by the way-good lesson in life. Isn’t this the hallmark of an effective coach?!
What do you think? Seen the movie?
