Hi! I am an HR with 5+ years of experience in career coaching, recruitment, and talent management. Being a Rogerian, I believe in openness, acceptance, and empathy as the key factors of successful relationships. Right now, I am interested in coaching psychology as a scientific tool to increase the performance and wellbeing of tech professionals.
MY TOPICSTopic is a subject user would like to share its knowledge about.
I talked to Vitoldas Masalskis about coaching psychology, research, mental healthcare, and a little bit about one's life and worldview.
It was a deep and meaningful conversation. 💛
Some of the topics include:
➡️ Do you need counseling, therapy, or coaching?
➡️ Why psychological knowledge is important?
➡️ When should a coach refer one's clients?
➡️ Why is coaching psychology on the rise?
➡️ How to learn more about coaching?
We both agreed to meet for the second round in the future. 👌
P. S. The video is in Lithuanian. 🇱🇹
Think twice before deciding which side you are on, while you are listening to other people trash-talking their managers, colleagues, or partners. ⚠️
According to a recent study, by siding with the interlocutor, we are just adding more fuel to the conflict, which discourages the interlocutor to forgive and make peace with the other party.
To be supportive, we do not have to choose a side. The most important thing is to create a safe space for the other person to vent their emotions and collect one's thoughts.
We can do it by asking open questions, such as:
✔️ What happened?
✔️ How does it make you feel?
✔️ Why is it important for you?
✔️ What is the next step?
Remember that our goal as good conversational partners is not to condemn anyone but rather be patiently present with the other person. 👌

We planned to speak for 30 min., and ended up with 1.5 hours, had excellent knowledge exchange about Qoorio, coaching, and psychotherapy. Highly recommend to speak to anyone who wants to learn more about his topics.
During the first coaching session Povilas helped me to raise relevant questions about my future, find answers going from deep down of my mind and encouraged to take first small steps towards my new goal.
