Be Your Own Coach is filled with exercises and practices that you can use to coach yourself. In this section we will continue to offer you more practices to work with the ideas in the book.

If you happen to be a corporate coach, these practices will provide you with alternatives to use in coaching courses you may be teaching using our book. You may also use these practices with your in-house coaching clients.

If you are an independent professional coach, you can use these practices as a supplement to the ones offered in the book.








Coaching practice related to the movie The Shipping News.

Coaching Practice:

    Take any of the topics that show up in this film: community, belonging, fear, love, place, ancestors. Choose one of the following to practice:

  • Be a community member who creates value: how can you commit to something bigger than what you are now committed to? What new action can you take?
  • Find a way to create a sense of belonging: at work, at home, in your community. Whom can you reach out to?
  • Identify a fear that has had a hold on you: what is one thing you can do to step through the fear?
  • Identify someone that you love and find a way to show your love to that person, a special way.
  • Move around your neighborhood, your property, or your home, and honor the parts of ‘place’ that make you feel connected and grounded.
  • Learn something about your ancestors. For example, you could interview an old aunt or uncle, ask them what some of the family rules were when they were younger.
