How to Turn Your Coaching Program into a Book ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | EVOLVE | Scoop.it

If you’re a coach who wants to be seen as the go-to person in your niche, being a published author is a huge advantage. It proves you know your stuff, and gives you a level of credibility that money can’t buy.  This will attract new, premium clients to you, as your readers seek out the person (you!) who has already proved to them – via their book – that they can help.

Mining Your Mind: Journal Techniques for Writers

Mining Your Mind: Journal Techniques for Writers | EVOLVE | Scoop.it

Writers practice the advice of Sir Francis Bacon, even if they are not aware of his precise words: 'A (wo)man would do well to carry a pencil in his pocket and write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought are commonly the most valuable and should be secured because they seldom return.'

The ultimate pathway to your inner-most thoughts: cathartic, creative & insightful!

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, May 28, 2013 7:44 AM

Some of the ideas presented in this article that I found interesting in a coaching context:


"Journal writing is cathartic and enlightening. Words spill out from places perhaps yet undiscovered. (...) The benefit of a journal is that it keeps your record, perhaps for future use, of a perfect and spontaneous expression of truth, of insights into human nature, of memories, of snatches of creativity. Further, it is the record of a writer's interior life, validating his/her creative growth even during those periods when he/she 'cannot' write for an audience."


"When you are in the mindset of a journal writer, your radar is always on. You are poised to observe, notice the details and keep your mind open and absorbent."


"Prompts are questions or statements designed to spark your thinking about a subject in a new way. They often set you off on a new path of discovery -- about a value that has not been articulated, a piece of your personality that may not have been acknowledged or a memory that has faded. There are also web sites that offer prompts, questions or sentence starters to encourage writing."


"A journal writing technique that you can use to better understand a character or a situation is dialoguing. In journal writing jargon, dialogs are imagined conversations between two or more entities, not necessarily two people. They can be between the two conflicting parts of a person, or between two opportunities a character in your story has to choose. The dialog itself may never be used in the final writing PER SE, but it may help clarify the story for you. Ira Progoff, the grandfather of personal journal writing [author of At A Journal Workshop], has developed a full list of the kinds of dialogs you may want to engage."

Great comment Ariana, I had only thought of journals in the traditional sense. Thanks for the post.

As usual, Dr. Mary Kay Whitaker manages to focus on a critical issue affecting many managers today.  As I always say, titles do not make us leaders.  If we want to lead, we better pay attention to those who need us to understand them.  

 

From the article:

 

Are you guilty of not listening?

Be honest. How recently have you:

 

~Interrupted someone while he or she is talking?

 

~Interjected your words of wisdom?

 

~Increased the pace and tone of your message?

 

~Thought about something else why someone is talking?

 

~Looked out the window or starting texting?

 

~Thought you have already figured out what the person is saying before they finish their first sentence?

Do you listen?

donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 2013 1:56 PM

(From the article): Because we have so many things going on in our head and we operate at our pace and within our time frame, the following reminders will help all of us become better listeners. Pleases take a minute and review this list and share these listening skills and strategies with others. (GREAT LIST OF REMINDERS!)
