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 Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone.

Reflections and Practices:

Try one of these for reflection, and eventual action.

1. When Hagrid announces to Harry that he is a wizard, Harry replies, “I can’t be a wizard, I am just Harry.” [Well, Harry, you are a wizard. ~ And so are you, and you, and you.]

  • In what ways are you a wizard?
  • How does your wizardry show up in the world?
  • In what ways are you honoring it and using it?
  • What is one thing you could do this week to be “wizardly”?

2. In what ways are you a leader that embodies purpose, resolve, and heart? What can you learn about leadership from watching Harry Potter? What is one thing you can do this week to express your purpose? Resolve? Heart?

3. What is the meaning of the Mirror of Erised? [Note: Erised is “desire” spelled backward.] What role does desire play in your life? How much of your time is spent wishing and hoping vs. moving to action and realizing your desires? What is one desire that would be healthy for you to move into action on?
