Your ability to listen is your most obvious strength. Your ability to think on your feet is second and your ability to vary our methods on a moment’s notice is a close third. Practicing what you “preach” is huge! Your Facebook posts, your monthly newsletter, your blog. They all show a consistent message all of the time. Happiness is a choice. Happiness is a decision. Happiness is intentional. You are real and alive in what you write, in what you share. It resonates with people because it’s your real life. You are living it. It’s not just something you talk about and when hard times come you abandon. You use the same tools you teach. You go through the same crap all of your coachees go through. And you use the same things you ask them to use. You are so genuine. That’s a huge strength.You don’t hide your struggles, your challenges, your stumbling blocks. You use them as teaching tools.
Conversations with you about personal and professional growth are always challenging. And always safe. That is a rare and valuable combination, and creates an amazing environment for growth. Since you’ve given me different tools and helped me learn different ways of dealing with situations, I’ve been able to be more duck-like (you know… water off a duck’s back). Thank you!
