Executive Coaching for Nancy Pelosi?

House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi

House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi

Would executive coaching benefit Nancy Pelosi?  After the election, Diane Sawyer asked House Speaker Pelosi about her performance.  Speaker Pelosi responded with “No regrets because we believe we did the right thing.  We worked very hard.”

So, what is congressional leadership really about? Are congressional leaders elected to represent the voice of the people, or are they elected to set their agenda and stick to their guns? Why are these leaders scorned when they change course based on information gleaned from the polls? What are their best options?

Theodore M. Hesburgh said “The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.” Optimal Thinking leaders choose to be their best, regardless of the circumstances. They are wholeheartedly committed to their purpose. Their vision or purpose is an expression of what they most deeply care about, and dedicate their lives to what is most meaningful to them. Sometimes their vision can take years or even a lifetime to manifest. In their vision, they sweep past the ordinary and extraordinary, into the realm of the optimal.

Martin Luther King Jr. shared his vision of equal opportunity for all races. His vision expressed his deep personal commitment to acknowledging God’s presence within every human being. For him, God’s presence unified all of humankind. This knowledge inspired him to share his vision of racial equality.

The founder of IBM, Tom Watson, visualized what his company stood for regardless of the services and products it would offer in the future.

So, did Speaker Pelosi do the right thing? If not, where did she go wrong, and how could she benefit most from your input?

Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching requires a willingness to learn, grow and optimize. This executive coaching process empowers individuals to employ best practices to execute the most compelling vision. So I ask, “Would Nancy Pelosi benefit from Optimal Thinking Executive Coaching?” I look forward to your most constructive comments.

    The issues you raise are incisive. Nancy Pelosi is a tough person. She believes in what she is doing even though it isn’t popular right now. She will let history be her guide.
