Toward the end of a recent coaching session, my client said that she was shocked at where she is today compared to where she was just a few months ago. She said that she never dreamed of the changes that would be coming, and she linked the changes with coaching.
This made me think about how valuable it is to have someone ask us to think outside of the box. Do you have someone who pushes you to think differently? My husband is really great at that with me, as are some of my colleagues. What a gift!
Whether you are a coach, or a manager, or a friend, or a significant other, take a moment to encourage others to think outside of the box and then watch what happens!
