Unlearning to learn

Unlearning plays a big role in life, especially while learning new skills or changing careers. In this piece, the author talks about three key skills he needed to acquire to become a good coach – the power of listening in, the value of great questions and the importance of focusing only on the positive. That however, involved unlearning what corporate life had instilled over the last decade or so.

Focus on the positive
