What if you could work less hard
and have more impact?
The truth is, you can’t work any harder than you are already. You’re probably feeling overconnected, overcommitted and overwhelmed … at least some of the time. It’s not about working harder, it’s about having more impact.
To do that, you need to change the way you work. And that might be simpler than you thought.
The Coaching Habit gives you seven questions and the tools to make them an everyday habit. Master them, and you’ll be able to work less hard and have more impact.
