Most individuals have some ingrained behaviours that are detrimental to living a productive and effective life. These behaviours can stop us from being our best and excelling at what we do, and who we are.
Howard Guttman is a master executive coach who combines his insights and coaching experience to create a 7-step process that the reader could follow to change the behaviours that are holding her back. Many self-help books in this genre focus on either improving one’s professional lives or personal lives. Guttman combines both in the wonderful Coach Yourself to Win. One of his underlying themes is that if you can positively change some behaviours in one area of your life, you will be able to apply the same process to other areas of your life as well.
We can all achieve breakthrough performances both on the job and in our personal lives. We just have to want to do so, and to persevere in the process. Guttman’s coaching program will help you to clarify, set and stay committed to your Intentions, determine what holds you back, and find the support you need to change the behaviours that are holding you back. In addition, you’ll be able to develop a path for change, evaluate your progress as you are changing your behaviours, make any corrections that you need to realize your Intention, and realize your Intention to become the “new you” that you wanted to become before starting the coaching plan.
Coaching does not have to be left in the hands of professionals. You can coach yourself to change these pesky unproductive behaviours and create the life that you want — a life where you will excel and become the best you thought possible.
I would recommend Coach Yourself to Win to anyone who is struggling and wants to change certain behaviours and/or even careers. You can make whatever you set your mind to possible through Guttman’s coaching program.
