Yeah, I think that's one of the things I hear students tell me all the time, is when they do the Foundations training they get their structure for success.
The interesting thing is, the coaching journey isn't just for coaches. There's so much you can learn and use in your every day life. I wish I'd have done this 20 years ago, because as a CEO the human behavior skills that you learn, so useful in day to day working life, and personal life. It just changes the way you look at things and you analyze the code for why people are doing things. It makes such a difference in your life.
How has what you've been learning from your Foundations training and being around the coaching in this community, how has that helped you?
So we've got two kids, two teenage kids, 18 and 15. And teenagers, especially nowadays, is just a whole new challenge.
Just the way they think about things, and their priorities, and because they're our generation, they're after millennials, they don't really care about work. They want the money, but they don't really care what they do. So to be able to start to analyze in that and thinking about sort of how they're thinking. It gives you a bit more tolerance around what they're doing as well. Everyone's different. We've grown up in different areas.
The knowledge and the way that you dealt or you thought about how you grew up, you can't put on to them, because it's totally different.
And I'm very lucky, my wife, she's a nurse, and she's got a lot more understanding of human behavior than I used to have. I'm getting better. And how I was brought up around relationships and kids was totally different to her. So she already knew that we need to interact more with the kids, and not just, "Go in your room, and do what you need to do." To actually talk to them and understand what they're going through.
