#CoachingNuggets🧵from reading 3 more chapters of James Flaherty's 🔥book on Coaching:

1. It's easy for a coach to slip into more familiar roles (for me that is #mentor & #educator)-resist that pull.

2. Coaching is "mutual"-it goes both ways (trust, respect & free expression).
3. Trust is a gift that we can give to people. We can make up our mind and do it. It is not something compelled or "earned".

4. A #coach must bring 3 things: openness (no withholding, no judging), listening (beyond auditory) and absolute confidentiality.

5. Practical tips for better coaching relationships:

a) Say what you will do, do it, point out you did it, repeat
b) Share you thinking process and analysis openly
c) Change in response to feedback and speak truth to power

These seem very applicable #Leadership as well!

Just 12 months back, it was unthinkable that a COVID vaccine of proven efficacy could be developed, let alone administered, in anything less than 3 to 4 years. Vaccines took years, sometimes decades to develop and stabilize.
Fast forward to today — more than 10 reliable vaccines, more than 50% of the world’s population vaccinated with one dosage, vaccines developed for different strains of the mutating virus — it’s a truly remarkable achievement.
And also reflective of the enormous changes sweeping vaccine development technologies in particular, and healthcare in general.

Join us at Isha Insight Online 2021 for an engaging discussion with our Key Resource Leader @Nithin0dha, Founder and CEO, @zerodhaonline. #IshaInsight Image
@Nithin0dha @zerodhaonline Nithin says, “We always knew that there is an opportunity to disrupt the existing trading space given the way businesses operated, and the fact that incentives were not aligned to the customers.
Generally, in a broking firm, a broker makes money by getting people to trade, though the customer should in fact not be trading. Not only is there a conflict of interest, but also a massive exposure to risk. A lot of first-timers get misled.

For the longest time, machines have been the favorite accessory of the human species — you programmed them, told them what to do, and they dutifully went about following instructions, without error, fatigue, or tantrums. Image
Machines are quietly transforming from inanimate slaves to intelligent agents, analyzing more data at a faster pace and with lazer-sharp accuracy to increasingly take on decision-making roles.
By the end of the decade, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and self-learning algorithms, are predicted to take over more than 90% of decisions being made by business executives. What does this shifting human-machine balance mean to you and your business?

1/ There are few companies that fundamentally change consumer behavior.

@Flipkart re-defined how we shop. @zomato changed the way we ate. @Olacabs did so with how we commute. However, the most significant shift was to the way we transacted.

@Paytm pioneered digital payments.
2/ @vijayshekhar is an unconventional entrepreneur who proved that heart and effort can take you to dizzying heights of success and glory. He has become iconic to Indian #entrepreneurship.

We often search outwardly for #leadership advice. Another strategy is looking inward for advice: exploring the self might be more fruitful, and here’s why:
How we #lead is merely a projection of the self. If we take more time to explore and know our self (our beliefs, assumptions, values, opinions, fears, etc.), then maybe we can better understand the style and manner in which we lead.
Others have their own style and manner in which they lead. Their style, which is unique, is merely a projection of their values, their opinions, their fears and hopes—all unique. These projections will never mirror your projections.

1. Starting COP26 on Halloween, a festival for the dead, doesn't give much hope.

➡️ RT

🧵 The start of a thread on #history, #Halloween, #leadership, #nature, #climate, and #COP26 Image

2. Traditions can alienate you if you don't feel part of it. So in my efforts to blend in with the Canadians, I searched the internet to explain #Halloween and found that we have to go back into history as I so often do in The Planet newsletter.

3. There was not much of #Halloween celebration in colonial New England, where rigid Protestant beliefs prevented frivolously celebrating, especially of traditions with some doubtful pre-Christian fingerprints all over it.

Behind every successful project/venture there’s so much strategic planning involved that determines its future - be it putting a man on the moon or setting up a furniture store that it unique and can’t be replicated easily as it is a chain link system
or the company that developed the 3D graphic card - it all boils down to 3 guiding principles:
1. Diagnosis
2. Guiding policy
3. Coherent action
Richard P Rumelt’s Good strategy/Bad Strategy exemplifies this theory and is very engaging with the wonderful real life examples to back up these concepts!

1/6 A thread 🧵on the intersection of #Cybernetics #SystemsThinking #Leadership and #CyberSecurity:

For context, first read this blog by @harish_josev: harishsnotebook.wordpress.com/2021/10/03/tow…

It is AMAZINGLY well-articulated and a MUST read for security practitioners & leaders in general!
2/6 Quote: "... we should stop setting targets and instead, provide a direction to move towards."

Wait, don't manage by goals?

Is a goal-less company/org possible? Yes 🙂
E.g. @basecamp led by @jasonfried
3/6 If you focus on the goals, you'll compromise your means. E.g.: Today's education #system makes kids focus on grades, not on learning .

Basically what is being advocated for is "Management by Means":

As I've started working on a book on #skpoli politics over the past two decades, it has me thinking a lot about how #leadership shapes political success. I've become particularly interested in what leadership looks like in times of crisis, for obvious reasons.
I'm still thinking this through, but 1) let me say that sometimes I think we put way to much emphasis on leadership, thinking it alone solves political problems. I think we do a disservice when seeing leadership this way. But, having said that /2
leadership in times of crisis clearly matters. One of the constant themes I've noticed over the past few decades is that leaders that have some success as 'leaders' tend to share some common political responses /3

What is the role of a Chief Technology Officer is a question many aspiration CTOs and even the CTOs themselves ask. My answer in thread.
#engineeringmanager #management #techlead #leadership #cto #leaddev
In my research for the latest product I created for Senior Engineering leaders called CTO Toolkit, I found that there are 6 critical areas that fall within a senior technology leader’s remit, 3 are strategic and 3 are more operational.
In general, CTOs are responsible for:

⛳️ Technology Strategy

Evaluate the current technology landscape (technology stack, resourcing, capabilities, etc.) and recommend a forward-looking, short and long-term technology strategic vision and plan.

Does a software engineering manager (people manager) normally do a lot of coding in tech companies? I'll answer using my personal experience in the thread.

##engineeringmanager #software #developer #management #leadership #coding #techcompany #programming
When I was an engineering manager of a small team of 4-5, my coding time was about 40% - 50%.
When I was an engineering manager of a 12 people team, I’d only have about 10%-20% time for coding.

1. The U.S. sees a vital role for the Security Council to tackle the negative impacts of climate on peace and security.

U.S. Secretary of State Blinken said this when he addressed the U.N. Security Council on the impact of climate change on security.

Thread 🧵

2. Blinken said climate change is taken into account at every foreign policy decision because of its devastating implications and the cascading effects on virtually every aspect of our lives, like #agriculture, infrastructure, public #health, or food. theplanet.substack.com/p/the-us-sees-…
🌎

3. Blinken said: "The consequences are falling disproportionately on vulnerable and low-income populations. And they're worsening conditions and human suffering in places already afflicted by conflict, high levels of violence, instability".
