Vibhas specializes in executive-level engagement strategies and facilitates Gallup consulting programs, including strengths-based leadership and succession management. He is an expert in strengths coaching, and he gave us an exclusive look into his coaching world.
When having initial conversations with CEOs, Vibhas says leaders almost always lay out their conflicts first. This is when it’s important to help them try something new to allow them to resolve their conflicts. When two leaders have an issue with each other, Vibhas coaches them to have a conversation about the areas in which they work well together, instead of focusing on the negative aspects of their working relationship.
Coaching teams can be different and sometimes more challenging than coaching individuals. Vibhas explains that there are three aspects to successful team coaching:
- Be well prepared.
- Moderate the room.
- Have clear goals.
Join us for the next Called to Coach on Friday, Feb. 21, at 12 p.m. EST (-0500 GMT). We will host Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, Brandon Miller.
Continue the coaching conversation at the Called to Coach Facebook page to network with other strengths advocates and coaches.
