Biting through

We are not quite halfway through the four events for which I was summoned. I am biting my way through the challenges that come from sorting out a hybrid process for leadership development. We are using the parts that are very robust and can stand on their own – sorting out the right French translations from the not so right phrases that transmit a different message than the one intended. But it works in a context where andragogy is a novelty. Leadership made palpable.

More challenges have already appeared on next week’s horizon when we are working with the ministry. An important event has been called in the capital that will certainly draw attendance down but there is not much we can do. I look at it from the positive side, less people, more depth.

Those who were new to the methodology only two days ago are now treated as knowledgeable coaches and showing increased confidence. It’s a bit of a contrast with the very intensive coaching training I am in, which required being on the phone from 1:30 till 3:00 AM very early this morning, and again after midnight tomorrow at the same time. I have alarms set on my smartphone for at least 4 coaching related activities this week, all at odd hours, all outside the regular 12 our workday – a side show.
