201710 Lean In GOF Circle Jennifer Shinkai

Meeting Goals

Engaging, the focus of this meeting, emphasizes how you can overcome your fears, move into action, and take risks.
• Develop strategies to make you more comfortable facing your fears and taking risk

Circle members used various tools to explore how they can handle real situations differently.  As always, confidentiality and trust are key to the success of the circle. It was a chance for people to take a coaching role, asking open questions rather than giving advice.

Meeting Takeaways

  • It’s always good to be reminded that we must step out of our comfort zone to learn.
  • Comparing the upsides of taking action versus the downsides of doing nothing – this made a lot of members realise that maintaining the status quo was not an option!

  • Digging Deeper – Using one of my favourite coaching questions And What Else?
  • Running a pre-mortem – understanding the absolute worst case scenario and how you can mitigate the risk or recover from it.
