Dr. Seuss helps me as a coach

I love Dr. Seuss. The cadence of the prose engages me to listen intently and create images in my mind that takes me away and provides a bigger picture perspective. When coaching corporate employees, I find myself looking for innovative, unique and authentic tools to assist me in guiding and facilitating the coachee’s self-awareness. One idea is to use Dr. Seuss’ words. I personally like Oh, the Places You’ll Go!. From my mom reading these words to lull me to sleep to one of my coaches who reminded me to reflect on the paths I’ve taken in my life as refreshed by Dr. Seuss’ words.

I now call on you to post your favourite childhood books and see if they resonate with you now, in the current state of your career, your personal life, your path. Let me know these books.

Oh! The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go…. [now go read the book]

  • Thanks a lot for giving everyone an extremely marvellous opportunity to read in detail from this blog. It’s usually so terrific and as well , full of amusement for me personally and my office mates to visit the blog not less than 3 times in 7 days to read the newest items you have got. Not to mention, I’m so at all times pleased with the perfect principles you give. Selected 4 tips in this post are particularly the most effective we have had.
