What do you really want?

In his book ‘The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way You Lead Forever’ Michael Bungay Stainer says: “We often don’t know what we actually want.  Even if there’s a first, fast answer, the question ‘but what do you really want?’ will typically stop people in their tracks.” The Lesson There’s a…

It’s used as a pointer about how positively they see life.  I’ve noticed though that there’s another distinction that is worth looking out for when it comes to how you view your achievements or…

Since I started my life coaching training I’ve become very sensitive to the word ‘should’ and love to replace it with ‘could’.
