Monkey Business: Responsibility, Boundaries, and How to Hold the Line

Have you ever been frustrated because you are always busy, but never getting any of your own work completed? Are coworkers and customers always coming to you because “you’re the only one that can help”? As coaches, is our work within systems meant to be helpful or useful?

In this talk, organizational coach Erin Randall will use the classic Harvard Business Review article, “The Time-Management Monkey” as a starting point for a conversation about work within systems, Christopher Avery’s Responsibility Process, and boundaries.

This blog post is a great read for what will be covered in this session.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to spot the monkey—and how to not pick that monkey up
  • See how Christopher Avery’s Responsibility Process can help you to understand your relationship to responsibility
  • Obtain practices to help you set and hold your own boundaries successfully



Erin Randall

Erin is a longtime agile, coactive, and ORSC coach with a deep passion for serving people, teams, and organizations. Through her work with her coaching and consulting practice, Ad Meliora Coaching, she helps her clients to find the pain points and then reimagine a new way forward. Her goal in all that she does is simple: happy people doing great work. 

Erin is an active believer in servant leadership. She is one of the co-founders of the Agile Coaching Circles, and she was a long-time co-lead of the Agile Austin Coaching Group, so don't be surprised when you bump into her at a meetup or in a Slack channel. She also makes mentorship a regular part of her coaching work. Throughout the year, she actively mentors three individuals that are trying to achieve specific goals in their work.

Erin holds multiple coaching certifications, including coactive (CPCC), Agile (ICE-AC), and organizational and system (ORSC-C) coach, and she serves as faculty for CRR Global, teaching others system-coaching skills. Additionally, she has completed work in Embodied Leadership (Strozzi Institute) and advanced facilitation training. Erin also writes regularly about all things coaching on her blog, which is found on her site, www.admelioracoaching.com. Her particular passion is questions, and she is always looking for ways to ask better questions. She regularly teaches and speaks at conferences about how to help others learn and practice this foundational skill.  

She and her husband, Joel, split their time between glorious Austin, Texas, and very rural Montana. Their two horribly wonderful dogs, Eleanor and Beatrice, help them to participate in the new sport of extreme vacuuming. Erin can often be found hiking, drinking way too much tea, or reading. (She reads a LOT.) Connect with her on LinkedIn or experience coaching for yourself by booking a session at www.admelioracoaching.com.
