I had no hesistations other than the differences of dealing with the wider areas versus my first coaching engagement when it was more project specific. The world in which I now operate is much different. I’m more comfortable with the variety of work I have to do i.e. project work, management and business development. I am more aware of when I am struggling and question whether I need to or there is an easier way to accomplish the same aim. I’m setting up systems to ‘end struggle’ and integrate time to respond to the unknown and jettison non critical work.
I feel more ‘Director like’. More measured and I bounce about a lot less. I write a lot less detail down because I am spending more time considering work tasks and primarily whether I should get involved or delegate. I am more reflective in what I commit to. For example I’ll now sit through a Board meeting and note only the salient point versus trying to note and think about everything that is said.
