Leveraging Polarity Management in Leadership Development and Executive Coaching
Working with Executives who are pulled in many directions requires a high level of adeptness in direct questioning, bottom lining and narrowing in on possible areas of awareness.
The Polarity Management tools developed by Barry Johnson, PhD and Polarity Partners, LLC are great tools to use to create awareness with your clients about where they are on a personal scale of a wide variety of and/or situations. Setting goals around where they lie in the various demand poles they face can help them achieve balance faster and more effectively.
Increase your core area of knowledge around these useful tools with this advanced continuing coach education course from The Elevar Group.
