Participate in one of the organizations at www.CoachesCare.org. We are stronger in groups than we can ever be as individuals. To quote a saying I learned in Tanzania, “I am because we are.”
How can you help? What will you do differently? Reach out to someone you know in your community where coaching could impact their life in positive ways. Ask if they would like to be coached. Send your ideas and thoughts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will highlight the best ideas in a future column.
