A lot can be said about coaches.
We’re superstitious. We are a ego-centric. We are some of the most wonderful people on the face of planet Earth (I threw that in just for a feel-good Friday comment).
You can agree or disagree with that above, but one thing most people would agree about coaches is that we are creatures of habits.
I’m in the process of reading, and re-reading, one of the most insightful books I’ve ever read about working with people. The Power of Habits by Charles Duhigg. (affiliate link)
He discusses habits, of course, and other topics such as grit, willpower, routines.
If you have a chance to read this book, or listen to it on audio, I think you’ll find it will have a very positive impact on your coaching experience. If you do read it or have read it please let me know what you think.
