I wrote about being a Hurdler in a previous blog post.
Defined as a tireless problem-solver who gets a charge out of tackling something that's never been done before. When confronted with a challenge, the Hurdler gracefully sidesteps the obstacle while maintaining a quiet, positive determination. This optimism and perseverance can help big ideas upend the status quo as well as turn setbacks into an organization's greatest successes—despite doomsday forecasting by shortsighted experts.
Today I had a coaching meeting with a teacher. When I showed up for the meeting
KG: I have something to ask you that is not about what we are meeting about.
Me: Sure, What?
KG: I'm having this issue with a pie graph in Numbers (Apple app).
Me: Show me.
KG: Opens computer and shows me what she did, and then explains that she would like to add labels or a legend in each segment of the pie.
Me: Ok, can work on your computer?
Me: I click on lots of things on the screen while KG says yes, I tried that, yes I tried that.
Needless to say after clicking on many things, searching Google, and watching two YouTube videos we couldn't figure it out. I will be "hurdling" tomorrow till I get it figured out and can send her a screencast of how I solved it.
I love being a tech coach!
