The Full 90 with Mike Avery

90 word reflections on coaching.

(Not as easy as it sounds, but neither is coaching.)


REGULAR TIME (90)

Reflection 7: 90 words on "communication".


30 years of coaching. I’m good at telling.

Pro really.

Practiced, concise, persuasive.


I build them up, fire them up, let them down gently.


I don’t negotiate - I navigate to where I want to go. Jedi mind trick.


If communication is competition, I win.


But, am I hearing, or am I listening?


Hearing is accidental. Listening is intentional.


Do I listen with compassion, curiosity, empathy?


Do I listen to fix, or listen to understand?


Authentic leaders communicate.

Not only inform, but also listen.

On purpose.

With purpose.



Listen to understand.



EXTRA TIME (90+)


When I started they told me I only needed three chords and the truth... it turned out I could manage with two and some vague ideas.
