Subject: Coach Guru - Nov 2020

Regal’s Coaching initiative turns six, book recommendations, mental health DIY & much more.
Dear Leader,

You would agree that there is a dramatic and fundamental shift in the role of a manager. Managers are not anymore expected to be just subject matter experts. They have to be good at people management too! Rapid, constant, and disruptive change is now the norm, and to succeed you have to grow and nurture the leader in you.

End of the day, who would you rather work with - the one who knows everything, or the one who knows almost everything and is approachable, inspirational and reliable?

We are happy to share with you that Regal Unlimited’s Coach Training and Mentoring services recently turned 6! Six fantastic years of coach training, certification programmes, and life-changing moments. Six fulfilling years of organizing training programs for ICF, RCC, Leader-As-Coach, Active Living, Leading with spiritual intelligence, and much more– all with the singular aim to transform and empower the leader in you. Did you know that we have trained and mentored over 200 coaches for coach certifications and over 1,000 leaders and professionals on coaching, mentoring, and healing so far?

From a small firm in Bangalore to a sought-after coaching school for leaders from all over the world, Regal Unlimited has come a long way and how! We are very grateful to you for reposing your faith in us and allowing us to be your partners in self-discovery and growth. Read More

As the world celebrated on 10.10.2020, we asked some members of our community a question on what they did for their mental health:

Last month we had a talk on “Mental Health and Wellness” by Dr. Shubhra N Punetha.

She spoke about how wellness at the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels is equally paramount and encouraged the audience to remove the stigma of being mentally unwell. Some important takeaways from her webinar:
✓ We now have multiple options to heal. Choose what works for each one of us.
✓ In any situation, it is good to ask, ‘Is it even mine?’ If I feel light, then it is mine. If I feel heavy, it is not mine.
✓ It is also good to ask, ‘Who does this belong to?’ Feel free to return to the sender with consciousness.
✓ When we include everyone, let us not forget to include ourselves.
✓ If you feel heavy, ask questions - questions lead to awareness.
✓ “What else is possible?” Focus on solutions, not only problems. Focus to grow. 
The Phoenix Encounter Method
A radical new leadership strategy to transform business as we know it―from a dream team of INSEAD professors and mega-bestselling author Ram Charan.
The business landscape is littered with the wreckage of companies that crashed and burned when an apocalypse came - in the shape of new competitive technologies, upstart entrants, demographic shifts, and new world orders. Who can feel safe in firestorm change? 
Our ICF-approved #CoachTraining starts with a focus on the process, the framework and the science of coaching. As the learner moves forward, on the strong foundation, the learner-coach moves into the realm of art. The art of coaching finds its expression in the stillness (coaching #presence is an ICF coaching competency.)
A new online/global/live batch will be starting on Jan 30, 2021. Registrations are on. You can write to us a / for more details.

Great leadership is about having the coaching mindset
You have moved up the corporate ladder, spending time and making the effort to check all the right boxes – academics, meeting the deadlines, upgrading skills, achieving targets, and more. However, there is a lot of difference between becoming the leader and being the leader. Just being good at your job is not enough anymore. Leadership, as you grow up the ladder, is more and more about managing people than completing tasks. As Marshall Goldsmith says, "What has got you here, will not get you there". 
You must make the transition to be the leader who inspires the team to put forth the best foot forward. Inspiration happens only when you move away from "Command and Control" mode to "Empower and commit". This transition requires you to suspend judgments, provide support and guidance, rather than tell or give instructions. Coaching mindset helps build trust, enables people working with you to adapt to the constantly changing and challenging environment, in ways that unleash ownership, enthusiasm, and accountability.

Women as Leader - Unfolding a Woman’s Leadership Presence
“Don’t aim to break the glass ceiling: aim to shatter it” - Matshona Dhliwayo While the world is evolving, when it comes to leadership positions, women are lagging. Dr. Daniel Amen, author of Unleash the Power of the Female Brain, in his research has discovered that female brains are very active in almost all areas, especially in the prefrontal and limbic cortex. Women have 30 percent more neurons firing than men do.
This enhances strengths such as empathy, intuition, teamwork, and self-control. Though women have all the positive attributes required to be a great leader, why do we still have fewer women leaders? Read more.

Don't just aim to break the glass ceiling, aim to shatter the glass ceilings, and also your limitations.
