As JDP continues to help me over the next few months, here is how I will be more coachable:
1: Take off my Body Armor aka Be Vulnerable: One definition of vulnerability is to be open to criticism.To paraphrase author Gail Sheehy, ‘For real growth and improvement, one must shed the protective structure like a hardy crustacean and be left exposed and vulnerable.’
2: Be Receptive: Being accessible, interested, open to new ideas, persuadable. I will be an active listener
3: Get off "my way or the highway...": Better said - admit I don't know everything! Let's try it a new way.4: Inch Forward: Often BIG rewards happen when we focus on the little gains. Skills and drills are valuable (not wasted) sessions!
5: Take a Deep Dive Inward: What's in my head, my speech, my attitude that is keeping me from physically performing?
