Why Gestalt, Why Now
Leaders are under increasing pressure to deliver exceptional outcomes, in employee engagement and retention and in bottom-line results. Gestalt coaching is the leadership coaching approach which most effectively addresses and cultivates the qualities defined in today’s leadership literature as being most desired: leaders’ ability to identify, enhance, and activate their personal values, particular strengths, and multiple resources to support their employees and benefit the organization’s mission and goals. Frederick Buechner suggests that what you feel “right” in doing is perhaps what everyone needs you to be doing, right now.
In this fast-paced world, existing knowledge may not keep pace with emergent disruptions. Mindful multi-dimensional awareness can be accessed to support perceptions of new possibilities and choices. Responding to challenges by being self-aware and using one’s self strategically is a sign of mastery that inspires both coaches and their leadership clients. Gestalt awareness practices empower us to develop dimensions of our presence in alignment with our core values and to use ourselves with the intention to respond to and influence others adaptively.Download Article 1K Club
