What is executive coaching or CEO coaching? This is a very funny video where Bob Newhart shows us executive coaching and demonstrates a sure-fire method to resolve any issue in less than five minutes. In Tribal Leadership Philosophy, we view one-to-one coaching as a sign of Stage Three. Stage Three is the dominant culture of U.S. workplace tribes, where the language is “I’m great” (and you’re not). Stage Three people are competitive and work to show everyone that they are smarter and better than anyone else. This personally competitive cultural stage produces limited innovation and almost no collaboration. No amount of ropes courses and “trust exercises” will turn this tribe of self-declared superstars into a team.
