Book-based coaching, takes what I do with groups and organizations, and brings it down to the individual level.
Using a book of your choice as our guide, my role is to support you to connect more deeply with the ideas in the book, and truly bring the ideas to YOUR life.
When it comes to reading non-fiction, there are 3 approaches to the work:
CONSUMING the ideas
CONNECTING the ideas to yourself, your work, your values, your organization, etc.
CREATING from the ideas, whereby you put the ideas into practice and change your behavior long term
Many of us are happy to consume.
Some of us then also take the step to experiment with creating. Sometimes it works, often times it doesn't - at least not long term, and not consistently.
I believe, it's because they are missing out on the most important C.
To support this deep connection, I incorporate my experience as a teacher, coach, facilitator, and leader.
Due to the nature of my work, I have extensive knowledge in psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness and consciousness practices, behavior change and habit-forming/deletion, and spiritual practices like yoga and meditation, giving me a truly holistic approach to my work.
At times, I will be a pure coach, asking questions to help you explore your own depths.
At other times, I will be a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader, and even a drill sergeant if that's what you need at the moment.
