“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”
- Jim Valvano, Basketball Coach
Members of Adaptive Learning engage in informal coaching for individual leaders who wish to further
their understanding of themselves and how the "resonate" with others. Understanding just where
an individual is along the Leadership Journey is fundamental to this process.
"Your success isn’t in doing what we do; it’s in discovering your own way.
Don’t do what we do - we made it all up… do what inspires you… make it up!
You just have to be (yourself… what inspires you).
And it means commit yourself to who you say you are: act like it, think like it, look like it, feel like it,
speak it… coach it… be it! You will create your own way by just being yourself,
doing what inspires you. The secret to our secret lies in our commitment to being who we say we are."
- John Yokoyama (Owner: The World Famous Pike Place Fish)
Coaching however in the wider business sense is essential to the creation of extraordinary and outstanding
organisations. Pike Place Fish is an example of an organisation with a shared vision and common values who
commit to these, live these and self-coach the values every day. Internal coaching and mentoring should be
part of your organisation already - if it isn't, why not?
