Coach Your Self Up
Self-Coaching Skills for Success
This hands-on book is a roadmap for getting out of your own way. Throughout our lives we’ve taken on various behaviors and beliefs that may no longer serve us. It’s easy to assume that’s “just the way I am,” or that it’s either impossible or WAY too hard to change. But can you imagine how discovering new things about yourself – and coaching yourself to more effective ways of thinking and acting — might open new possibilities for your future? That’s the promise of Coach Your Self Up.
It turns out the best thing you can do for your career development is to commit to your ongoing personal development. By learning to be your own coach, you can take more ownership of your career and your life. You’ll have techniques to coach yourself anytime, anywhere, in any situation.
The principles of this book are for everyone, at every level of their career.
What is “Self-Coaching?”
Who do you talk to more than anybody else? This is not a trick question. For most of us the answer is “myself.” Now imagine using those inner conversations for good—your own good. Coach Your Self Up guides you to break through behaviors and thought patterns that may be blocking your success at work and in life.
Mike Normant lays the foundation for driving lasting behavior change by synthesizing important findings on self-awareness from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science.
Apply this approach again and again to “bend your future.”
With a step-by-step approach, plus easy-to-use self-coaching tools, you’ll learn to:
- Harness your attention to be more present and less distracted
- Notice your self-limiting behaviors (like not being a good listener, or never saying “no”)
- See how these behaviors can keep you from a promotion or personal satisfaction at work
- Discover and challenge your “deep stories” (unconscious assumptions, self-limiting beliefs)
- Experiment with acting differently
With you as your own coach, you’ll be more focused, have a more open mindset, make better decisions, and find more fulfillment.
Lead to BIG CHANGES
Make sustainable positive
As the CEO of your own destiny, leveraging your strengths is not enough— you also need to know where you may be holding yourself back. Mike Normant’s Coach Your Self Up helps you not only see where you are imposing limits on yourself, it teaches you the steps to make sustainable positive changes.
This book is a “must-add” to your personal and career development library. Mike Normant’s Coach Your Self Up pushes you to look in the mirror and honestly assess where you may be unknowingly blocking your own success. Building on a superb overview and synopsis of the work of important thought leaders in the fields of psychology and human behavior, Mike shares a step-by-step process for making small shifts that can lead to big changes for you.
The worlds of personal and career development are merging. Focusing on personal growth at work is part of bringing our whole selves to work. The best thing we can do to move forward in our careers is to make a commitment to our own personal development—to deepening our self-awareness. Mike Normant’s Coach Your Self Up provides a powerful self-coaching toolkit that enables this growth.
We make assumptions and jump to conclusions—all variations of story— multiple times a day.
These stories impact how we behave,
how we show up.
