Overview

The trend of coaching has increased significantly in recent years and so does their need.

Well, today we have invited Rick Charlton, Coach, Conservationist, and Teacher to share his insights with us.

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:

[00:33] About Rick Charlton

  • Rick is a Coach, Conservationist, and Teacher.
  • He is focused on leadership coaching and change management.
  • He is currently working in Coaching and Conservation.
  • He has previously worked in the Nuclear Industry, Fire and Rescue Service, and British Army.

[00:59] What made you become a coach?

  • It was accidental. It was not an aspiration.
  • I joined the army at a very early age.
  • After a career in the military, I went into the fire and rescue service.
  • I ended up on a Half-day Introduction to Coaching course, part of the fire services’ leadership development program.

[03:08] Aspect of being a conservationist

  • I see the concept of being a conservationist as a way of being, rather than as work.

[06:22] Leadership Coaching and Change Management

  • I particularly like to focus on having those deep conversations with the leaders.
  • There is a difference between leadership and management.
  • You manage processes, systems, buildings, and equipment. But you lead people.
  • We help them with their vision setting and goal setting.

[10:00] Did your previous experience help you become a better coach?

  •  I went into the military, which is very directive. You just do as you are told.
  •  When I moved into the fire service, it was very disciplined. They wanted to demilitarize it and try and make it less direct, to make it more inclusive.
  • To be a good change manager you’ve got to be a coach because you have to help people, to create an environment for people.

[11:34] VUCA Methodology

V- Volatile: You do not really know what is happening.

U- Uncertain: You do not know when is it happening.

C- Complex: You do not understand how is it going to be.

A- Ambiguous: You do not know how to handle it.

VUCA is a term that originated in the US military.

[15:07] How does culture impact coaching?

  • Culture and Coaching go hand in hand.
  • There is a greater willingness and openness to be coached in certain cultures than there is in other cultures. 

[18:18] Three life lessons

  • The past is history.
  • The future is a mystery.
  • The present is a gift.
