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 Whale Rider.

Coaching Practice:

  1. Paikea was a petite young girl with tremendous inner strength. Think of a time when you have counted on your inner resources and your inner voice to guide you. What happened? What strengths showed up in you? What obstacles did you overcome? Write in your journal.
  2. If you are in a leadership position, reflect on these questions: who am I? why am I here? what is important to me? What do I want to bring about? Give yourself the grace to live in these questions and to learn about your deepest calling as a leader.
  3. Paikea showed her leadership numerous times throughout the movie. Her leadership was often paired with courage. What do you know about your own courage? How does it show up in your own leadership? What leadership acts have you done lately? Write in your journal.
  4. In the next month, act on your inner wisdom and strength at least once. At least once, lean into the discomfort of being alone as a leader.
