Leverage Your Best, Ditch The Rest

I am thrilled with the "call to action" this book created for me. When I began, I underestimated the impact a coaching "book" could have on me as I have utilized a personal coach before and that was an incredibly powerful experience that helped me to make a (wonderful) major change in my life. However, because of this book, I am now making some critical changes to improve the quality of my life. As a wife, mother, family member and employee, it's the first time that I can remember really focusing on myself! And feeling like that's OK. The scrubdown forced me to be brutally honest about what was causing me fatigue and pain, and the book is providing me with clear direction on where and how to change that. Plus, I can focus on my immediate needs first, which has truly enrolled me. The author's bring out so many truths which are helpful and inspiring for me.

How to Zero in on exactly what you need now!

As an executive coach, I'm hyper-critical of coaching books. This one was different. I LOVED it. I read the whole book up to the Scrubdown, took the test and plotted my score on the grid. ELIMINATE YOUR TOLERATIONS stood out as THE KEY PLACE for my attention, so I went directly to chapter 10. Now, I'm not a novice to assessments, or even to the coaching principles discussed in the book. What's different and exceptional is the USABILITY of the book. The design lets you zero in on what's most important. I got what I needed FIRST, and went to work on that. The other reason I recommend this book is that the writing makes it so much fun. It's sassy, irreverent, perceptive, and so clear about what is true about the human condition. Acceptance, endorsement and okayness are conveyed in every sentence. The "Snapshots" (stories about people) are fresh and have an unmistakeable ring of truth. You'll want to get copies for friends and loved ones, including colleagues and your staff, who may have wondered what executive coaching is about..

At last a book that works

Finally a self helpbook that actually works. I have read many in this genre and never felt that i could incorporate the changes into my lifestyle. Not so with this book. Clearly Scott and Madeleine live in the real world. The book is amazingly, refreshingly straight forward without being simple minded. The scrubdown alone is worth the price. I have already seen a change in my life. Thanks

A Must Read

Scott Blanchard and Madeleine Homan have created an outstanding book not just for business but for any person working in any organization. Their examples, models and insights come from practical, "hands on" experience in working with and developing thousands of coaches. The best feature of the book is its practicality and the value it will create back on the job. All in all, an outstranding piece of work.
