As we approach Christmas, we’d like to share with you what our coaches recommend to read going into 2023…
Big feelings: How to Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay – Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy
It’s worth reading for the one graphic where we are reminded we have survived 100% of our worst days.
What Got You Here Won’t Get You There – Marshall Goldsmith:
This is a brilliant way to challenge yourself and become more self-aware about how to get where you want to be.
The Power of Now – Eckhart Tolle
The book on my shelf I reach for most often when clients are under stress. It’s not a new book obviously, but in a world of increasing distraction, comparison and uncertainty, it points to that elusive, deeper level within us all that we need access to for sanity and wellbeing: ‘To be free, you awaken to who you are beyond your personal history and life situation’.
The Good Drinker: How I Learned to Love Drinking Less – Adrian Chiles
Part autobiography, part self-help book and always entertaining. Adrian Chiles avoids the trap of ‘preaching’ while offering sound advice and drawing on both his own and expert experience. A book I’ve taken to recommending to all my clients who want to revert to only having the drinks that they really enjoy.
Time to Think – Nancy Kline
For me, one thing that keeps coming up when I talk to my clients is the benefit they feel from having the time to think in the presence of someone who is really listening. The book describes how we can take listening to another level and enhance the quality of thinking in others – an essential in today’s world where we are ‘too busy doing’.
Atomic Habits – James Clear
Recently I have re-read ‘Atomic Habits’, a book that inspired me when it first came out and I have been using it a lot with my coaching clients. It shares how to break bad habits and start good ones using an adaptable system for fostering habitual change with a focus on the impacts that very small changes have over long periods of time. ‘Atomic Habits’ is a book I recommend to anyone embarking on a coaching journey and committed in getting a sustainable change.
