Values Misalignment? (Danny Ceballos)

  • Episode #58

In this episode, consultant and executive coach Danny Ceballos talks about navigating value differences between coaches and clients. It’s not always necessary to agree, but how can we gracefully handle differences? When should we ignore and when should we explore?

Danny Ceballos is a leadership consultant, trainer and executive coach. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How and why you should consider your desired outcome as a factor in expressing what you consider to be your authenticity.
  • Distinguishing between authenticity and integrity.
  • Navigating professional relationships with clients who have very different values from you.
  • Being clear about your non-negotiables.
  • How to approach a delicate subject that might be hindering the coaching process.
  • Staying curious instead of accusatory when discussing differences of opinion.
  • Tips for screening potential clients to avoid possible issues.
“It’s important when there is something that doesn’t seem aligned to bring it into the light, to do something with it before it becomes this nagging barnacle on our journey together.”
