Many of you will know that I am a business coach as well as a mentor who does some training & consultancy. I love coaching because it is the very essence of positive action in the face of challenge, change or development. Done well, coaching can really transform thinking, learning & limiting beliefs.
A good coach, whether personal or a business coach (almost entirely inseparable I feel!) will stand shoulder to shoulder with you and meta you where you are in life or business to support and facilitate your own journey towards your own goals.
It got me thinking then, about the ways we can coach ourselves, especially if things are challenging or you need to implement change of some sort. What can we do for ourselves that will mean we will feel less stuck or at a loss?
So this week, I am sharing some of my favourite resources that I sometimes share with clients and, of course, some of my favourite resources that help me along the way when I get stuck. demotivated, negative or need to implement some changes to my life or business.
This isn’t an exhaustive list, it might miss out some that I will share later and you don’t need to resonate or like all of them. It might be that you pick just one that makes a difference:
