As you might have gathered I believe self-belief plays a big part in the ability to move forward and change. If a person isn’t ready to move forward then effective coaching, or any other development work, isn’t going to be possible. Here then are two interesting TED talks in this connection.
The first talk was brought to you by Rita Pierson (an educator who sadly died a short while ago) who maintained that inspirational teachers can foster a life-long sense of optimism in young people.
The second talk comes from Dr Brene Brown, an academic, who has a view on the power of vulnerability to connect people to one another. To paraphrase her view, as long as self-worth is present, people can work with others to achieve great results.
