Reflections on Round One

While not a complete disaster, my first attempt at coaching personal vision felt like getting beat up in a boxing ring. My client, although she is a close personal friend, didn't hold back any punches, and I took it on the chin!

Lessons Learned:

Before attempting to coach someone on personal vision . . . ensure that the person desires some change in her life. There is no sense in coaching someone who is completely happy with everything in her life.

Reserve exclusive time in a quiet setting for the coaching session. Trying to cram lunch and a coaching session into the same space and time puts both activities on a collision course. They are mutually exclusive events. Choose one or the other.

I've scheduled the second 'bout' with an enlightened colleague in a quiet conference room.
