Carolyn is a guest on Next Fem, hosted by Tara Padua, who introduces the topic as follows:
Adult development is a fairly new field of study that is providing a ton of insight in terms of how we continue to develop as we move through adulthood. My guest today is Carolyn Coughlin, a very accomplished woman who has studied extensively in the realm of adult development. She applies what she’s learned to the coaching and consulting she does as well as in her own life as the mother of two daughters. In this conversation, we discuss what adult development is, how it is significant in understanding our own growth, and how coaches, leaders, and women, in general, can use the understanding of A.D. to facilitate teamwork, hope, and growth in their own lives. It’s a great conversation so I hope you’ll join us.
Carolyn and Joel Monk discuss:
Why being able to see the common habitual language patterns that our clients use takes us beneath more superficial conversations into a realm of deep coaching around their identity.
Why making small shifts in our language can release major shifts in our identity or meaning making.
How we can listen to the implicit and explicit questions that our clients ask themselves and what becomes possible when we do.
Joel Monk interviews Jennifer and they discuss:
How developmental maps can help us slow down, and really be with the deep complexity of our clients.
A way to listen that goes beneath the surface story and into your client’s fundamental view of the world.
The shift at the heart of all development – the move from subject to object, from something I only see with, to something I can observe.
Jennifer and Bob muse about leadership and development, what the world needs from leaders right now, and how to get it.
Jennifer and Beth talk about leadership and adult development --how do we grow the leaders we need?
Jennifer and Amiel talk about leading in complex times and the habits that help.
Jennifer and Amiel muse about the way adults grow and change over time and what that means for leading in a complex world.
