It’s been raining slow and steady for the last 2 or so days here in my part of the Appalachians. It’s made me think of younger times when, mostly due to music, we seemed to reflect on rain as a sad occurrence. Because we’ve been so darned dry here, the rain is welcomed … a blessing.
Just this week I had a Leader call me who was a past participant in my Level I Coaching Program. He was calling about getting started in Level II. He had been through a performance checkpoint with his manager and had learned very specifically about things that could hinder his rise to the next level.
This manager had shared this specificity with him to get him on the path of positively dealing with the issues.
I found myself asking my Client, “Isn’t it a blessing to work for someone who cares enough about you to tell you these things?”
He agreed that it was … and he and I are about to embark on a process to allow this rain to cure the dryness and bring forth the green of what’s next.
