Lost Sheep

Are there any similarities between coaching and being a shepherdess? 

On the way home on a sunny afternoon after a great morning with a client, I was driving along, enjoying the sunshine when the car coming towards me flashed their headlights in what I assumed was their way of asking me to slow down.  I came around the corner to find a ewe and her two lambs wandering amiously on the road.

I pulled over and found another lady. Between the two of us we managed the get the ewe and her two lambs back throught the gap in the hedge, safely into their field.

What does this have to do with coaching?

  • Teamwork
  • Having a specific goal
  • The goal was measurable 
  • No judgement
  • Supportive and encouraging
