Leader (Coachee): I just don’t want to make the same mistakes of my predecessor. I was on the receiving end of his leadership, and now that I’m leading the same group I know everyone is looking to me to run things differently around here.
Coach: What do you feel is the best way to run this team?
Leader: It’s not that I’m intentionally trying to run things differently, but I genuinely have a different style of leadership. I see myself as an inclusive leader; whereas, my predecessor was much more abrasive and did things his way. I respect the people on the team.

Coach: So, how is that going so far?1K Club
