Agile Coaching And Professional Coaching Skills
What We’re Reading, Listening to, and Generally Excited to Share
What Erin Is Reading/Listening to Now…
To say that Erin is a big reader would be a gross understatement. She can generally be found with her nose in a book. Here are three books she loves and loves to pass on to others:
- A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas
- When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times
- Kitchen-Table Wisdom: Stories that Heal
Some recommendations from Jasper
Co-Active Coaching: Changing Business, Transforming Lives is a classic book about Co-Active coaching and still the best introduction text he knows.
Based on his personal experience, mindfullness and meditation are pivotal to developing the presence and self-management needed for coaching. His favorite app for that is Headspace.
Finally, he found Negotiating the Impossible: How to Break Deadlocks and Resolve Ugly Conflicts (without Money or Muscle) a amazing read. It is not negotiation, not coaching, but the stories in this book are fascinating and serve as a power reminder what you can achieve with only words and the right frame of mind.
Are you looking to be coached yourself?
Erin is a longtime coach with a deep passion for helping people, teams, and organizations transform from humdrum to remarkable. Upon realizing how much she loved to help people to create joy and lasting change in their own lives, she made the (relatively) easy decision to launch her own practice. She grounds her work in foundational humanist principles, helping people to find their purpose and live meaningful, resonant lives. Her goal is simple: happy people doing great work.
