Sydney J. Harris’s quote speaks volumes about one of my favorite topics – professional and personal development. There’s no secret that my passion for coaching is about as transparent as a person can be. Years ago when I traveled with friends, they were reading romance novels and there I was on a beach delving into the newest self-help book. Fast forward to today and you will find me on YouTube watching new techniques shared by numerous professional development gurus such as Tony Robbins. I’m NOT judging anyone’s reading choices! I’m giving you a glimpse into my interests. 🙂
Billions is an American television drama series starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, that premiered on Showtime on January 17, 2016. The series is loosely based on the activities of the crusading federal prosecutor of financial crimes and his legal battles with hedge fund managers. Wendy is the corporate spiritual advisor for the hedge fund company. She uses effective coaching strategies that she learned from Tony Robbins on the team. I am mesmerized by her outcomes. My coaching clients have been introduced to many of her technique and the results are impressive.
I feel that we are on a continuous journey to become the best who we can be and to change the world one person at a time. I own this statement. It’s so worthwhile to support others who believe in this philosophy.
Here’s my question for the week:
How do you get to know yourself? Is it through reading, training, or coaching?
Please share your favorite personal or professional growth books. I will compile your ideas in a future blog.
