Trick or Treat – It’s Halloween!

Trick or Treat – It’s Halloween!

πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ Today is Halloween, whooooooooOOOOOO!!!!!!! πŸ‘»πŸ‘»πŸ‘»

You might ask, how can Halloween be possibly related to leadership or coaching?

Well, as it turns out, Halloween presents many analogies with πŸ‘» spooky πŸ‘» behaviors that can impact your leadership credibility and performance.

Consider these 5 things for instance:

πŸŽƒ Everybody wears a mask at work, so be wary for what character and mask you want to portray. This has everything to do with your leadership brand: How you speak, how you are perceived by others, what values you are projecting, etc.

πŸŽƒ Ghosts and monsters (also referred as gremlins or saboteurs in my coaching world) are here to haunt and derail you if you don’t confront them and are not ready to work on your self-development and exploring your self. Coaching is a great tool to support you throughout this journey.

πŸŽƒ Candies are nice but they provide only short-term happiness and satisfaction, and as with children, you can just obtain so much with a few candies. To get full engagement and accountability from your team, you’ll need much more than candies, you’ll need authentic leadership.

πŸŽƒ People will judge you based on your costume, the character you play, or your title in the corporate world. Don’t forget that in the end, authentic leadership is about how you feel, what matters to you, knowing yourself, and knowing where your red line is.

πŸŽƒ Your leadership cannot be weakened by elephants in the room, skeletons in the closet. You need to keep your house clean: Address conflict, have difficult conversations when needed, don’t let toxic communication happen in the workplace, create a safe place for your team.
