Coaching tip: people-pleasing
Why do we people please? We want to make everyone happy. We want to help them and we want to be accommodating, even at the expense of ourselves. It’s vital that we sacrifice for others, but if we are kind and selfless in order to be liked? Well, that’s manipulation. We all want to be loved, but we must be loved for who we really are.
In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena provides crucial examples so we can determine if we have fallen into the trap of people-pleasing. In her interview, Elena Armijo talks with the amazing litigator turned leadership coach, entrepreneur, and development professional Zoe Paliare. Zoe’s fiery personality, strong convictions, and giving spirit make her a powerful champion for social justice. Through their discussion, Zoe talks about why social justice is so important to her, how she helps create avenues for more diversity in the workforce and coaching spaces, what coaches can do to be more inclusive, and what her latest social justice project is (here’s a hint: it’s a new podcast!).
