I posted about how the dogged persistence of coach-led or self-directed questioning can lead to getting deeper to the heart of an issue in Getting to the Essence of Aspiration. In a recent podcast, Wolf McNally approaches this topic from a slightly different angle. Being a Theory of Constraints student, he looks at how actions can be explored to come up with the best course of action. In You Might Have to Shave a Yak he talks about not accepting the term “I don’t know”; you need to keep asking questions. You need to be persistent in order to make progress.
Here’s my Apple podcasts review of “Beware of Wolf”:
Wolf’s podcast is a good solo effort in the advice/ self-help genre. A bit of a throwback in the podcasting sense, it’s produced like a syndicated radio feature piece from the 1970s. (In fact, Wolf refers to Earl Nightingale in one of the episodes.) It’s scripted and uses musical interlude; don’t let that throw you off – listen to the words and concepts. Wolf is a talented software and technology pro who has a lot to offer. As a professional coach, I can sense that Wolf is a curious soul that is receptive to thoughtful input and would likely make a good coach himself. The positivity and life lessons he speaks to are applicable to anyone at any stage of their life or career.
