Coach's Corner

Why I Didn't Want to be a Life Coach

Calling Out the Power
By Martha Lasley

Too often coaching is predictable, polite, and comfortable. When asked what they want more of, most clients say, “I want you to challenge me…”

Words of WisdomIn honor of Black History month, we celebrate and reflect on cultural awareness.

“Peace is not unity in similarity but unity in diversity, in the comparison and conciliation of differences.” --Mikhail Gorbachev (Russian Politician, Environmentalist, Social Activist, Nobel Peace Prize Winner)

“Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.” --John Hume (Irish Politician, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Defender of Democracy Award, Gandhi Peace Prize)
