As a coach I can work from anywhere... no matter where I am at I always have a book (or 10) with me during a coaching conversation.
Growing up I hated... like really hated anything that required a book. During 'silent reading' I would sit at my desk and day dream...eyeing the kid next to me so I knew when to turn the page of the book that I wasn't reading. Not exactly sure how I got through school but I managed to squeak by.
These days I am basically having an affair with whichever book I am reading. The book goes with me everywhere and I sneak in a page or two whenever I can.
Oh how I love a good book.
Getting lost in a good mystery or romance novel is bliss and as a coach I love learning the tips, tools and best practices of the experts. These books are my teachers, mentors and coaches. I am constantly referring back to a book for guidance... as a coach and as a student.
This is one of the reasons that I love being a coach...I get to share the knowledge that I have gotten from these books with my clients.
On days like today where I sit here surrounded by books, chatting with a client I feel most grateful...
