5 Creative Coaching Techniques To Get Yourself Unstuck

I’ve tried and tested them with hundreds of coaching clients over the past 15 years, so I can confidently recommend using them when you’re facing a problem or adversity, and you need to draw on your reserves of creativity and courage to overcome it. 1. The Magic Word ‘Instead’ When you’re feeling stuck, it’s very easy to get caught up in problem focused thinking. The problem seems so overwhelming that it takes over your whole mental space, leaving precious little room for manoeuvre. There’s also a well established school of thought that says that in order to solve a problem, you need to understand it thoroughly – where it came from, what caused it, what it means etc. I don’t subscribe to this school of thought, because I’ve seen so many instances where dwelling on the problem only makes it worse. What do I want instead of this? 2. Coaching for teaching and learning: a guide for school leaders.

What is coaching - The Coaching & Mentoring Network

Both coaching and mentoring are processes that enable both individual and corporate clients to achieve their full potential. Coaching and mentoring share many similarities so it makes sense to outline the common things coaches and mentors do whether the services are offered in a paid (professional) or unpaid (philanthropic) role. top of page Useful definitions The common thread uniting all types of coaching & mentoring is that these services offer a vehicle for analysis, reflection and action that ultimately enable the client to achieve success in one more areas of their life or work. Here are some published definitions we particularly like... Coaching. Coaching is training or development in which a person called a "coach" supports a learner in achieving a specific personal or professional goal.


The learner is sometimes called a "coachee". Occasionally, "coaching" may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on competence specifics, as opposed to general overall development. Some coaches use a style in which they ask questions and offer opportunities to challenge the learner to find his or her own answers. This helps the learner find answers and new ways of being[clarification needed] based on their own values, preferences and perspectives. Origins[edit] Sacred Vocal Music.

10 Amazing and Stunning Piano Pieces

Its instant popularity led to a massive influx of solo piano pieces being written – some a violent explosion of color and motion, others a slow, melodic meditation. Some pieces were less than a minute in duration and some hours long (in fact, there was a rumor circulating recently as to the existence of a post-modern piece whereupon one note is played every hour, and pianists take shifts to keep the performance lasting for weeks, months at a time). Yet while I’m sure many of you are familiar with hundreds of beautiful, instantly recognizable pieces, this is a list of ten pieces which rival even the most famous pieces in beauty, yet have slipped under the radar. Of course, some of these will be known to some of you, but hopefully everyone will find something new here. Frederic Chopin Scherzo No. 2 Op. 31 Philip Glass Franz Liszt.

Advice for Pianists: How to Compose Piano Music

A fan who read my advice for pianists article asked if I'd write a similar article for beginning composers. So, I've put together these 12 composition tips for anyone who would like to compose music for the piano. 1) Start With the Melody You don't have to come to the piano with an entire song already in your head before you start composing.
