Coaching is the stretching of a mindset beyond its normal reasonable limitations.
What’s missing from coaching you might receive at work? How often in your career has someone invited you to take accountability for your mindset? The next time anyone does will likely be the first time. Imagine we’re eavesdropping on your management team’s attempts to hold individuals accountable for missed results? We’d probably hear questions like:
What happened that prevented you from achieving your goals?
What caused you to miss the deadline?
Why didn’t the result we planned for get accomplished?
Sound familiar? Don’t these questions flow so easily off the tongue?
In the field of leadership development, Art Turock’s diverse skill set is tantamount to what baseball calls a 5-tool player who is extremely talented in all the core skills of position players. As an elite performance provocateur, Art can draw upon any of 5 skill sets–speaking, training, coaching, meeting design, and project leadership. The most all-encompassing piece of Art’s work incorporating all five of these skills is Mission Unreasonable Projects.
At age 26, Art developed his initial expertise as in project leadership by guiding two federally funded projects (University of Iowa College of Medicine, Independence Mental Health Institute) and one statewide project (Iowa Department of Social Services). In the past 5 years, corporate clients like Hormel, Wells Enterprises, and Cerium Networks have participated in year-long Mission Unreasonable Projects.
