We are a few weeks in to the New Year already. Have you set any resolutions? Are the resolutions you’ve set already starting to stall? If the answer to either of these questions is no then read on! I’ve never been a massive fan of resolutions, but this year I have been drawn to them – mainly down to the two resources I refer to in this posting. This short (5:25) video from Jeff Walker (a product launch guru) details rituals,
This is my final posting of the year, and what a year it has been with the publication of my first book – It’s Not About The Coach. I hope you have enjoyed the series of free videos over the last couple of weeks, if you like what you’ve seen then don’t forget for the last 2 weeks of December the ebook is available for 0.99 across all currencies.

To celebrate the fact that my publisher is running a price promotion for the last two weeks of December (It’s Not About The Coach is available as an ebook for 0.99 across all currencies) I thought I’d send out a series of free videos. Here is number 3 of 3 – goals….

Analyse what is required, yet remain open to the application.
In this reading I cite the example of Sarah and Steve,

Any coachee worth his or her salt will possess the ability to be curious about themselves and others. Indeed, this very curiosity is typically the trigger for the coaching in

To find your authentic self as a coachee, you really need to reflect on your experience and maybe highlight moments in your life that influenced you. Recognise your inner
After 5 year of research, writing and hard work my book It’s Not About The Coach is finally due for release on Friday 29th of November!
If you have liked the free content that I have shared in the last three postings (possibilities, perception, & performance videos) then the book of course goes even deeper.
