Just published a new book - Self-Sabotage: 12 Nasty Habits. Self-Sabotage – 12 Nasty Habits is about how your behavior impacts your personal and business relationships. It describes a dozen ways you could be limiting your prospects through unthinking behaviors. It can help you see those behaviors in others and better understand the damage they are causing. But, more importantly, this book can help you take a fresh look at your own life and behavior. If you can overcome just one of these nasty habits, the benefits will be life changing. http://www.dr-smith.info/self-sabotage-12-nasty-habits/

Senior directors have the responsibility for clear thinking and providing continuity in strategy and policy. Senior leaders also have the responsibility for engaging new directors and encouraging new ideas in strategy discussions.

My life-coaching clients have ranged from very senior and successful executives to people just starting out in life. One client – a very successful CEO – was making more money than he ever expected to. However, he felt that something was still missing. On the surface, his life appeared to be full and fulfilling. He had a good marriage, a family and occupied his free time with volunteering and interesting hobbies. He was looking for his purpose – wanted to find his passion.

Where the first engagement was inward-looking; the second was outward focused.
The realizations that were reached by both of my clients at roughly the same time had many similarities

The patterns are very clear if you know how to look for them. If you miss them, the experience can be very expensive.

I was approached by a CEO who wanted to do a mid-career check up. The idea was to take stock of his experiences (success and failures) and to chart a course forward. As the person was too young for a mid-life crisis, I decided to take the engagement. My reasons were, 1) the request was novel as most people wait until they are in deep trouble before seeking out a coach, 2) he wanted to focus on his limits and potential rather than the rest of the world (a lack of paranoia is always a strong recommendation), and 3) he had a clear set of metrics in mind for the engagement.
