Know Your Self, Own Your Career
Whether stalled in your career – which can be frustrating and demoralizing – or advancing quickly, many of us expect more from our careers. If you know you’re capable of tapping more fully into your potential but don’t know where to begin, then it may be time to ‘coach your self up.’
Coach Your Self Up: Self Coaching Skills for Success is based on the premise that the best thing you can do for your career development is to commit to your ongoing personal growth—because personal development is career development.
Deepening your self-knowledge is important for taking ownership of your career. Learning to be your own coach is an effective way to make this happen.
What is “self-coaching?”
Who do you talk to more than anybody else? This is not a trick question. For most of us the answer is “ourselves.” Now imagine using those inner conversations for good—your own good.
High performance coaches know that to make a lasting outer (behavioral) change, you must do the “inner” work. Just becoming open to the possibility that your deep stories are not “facts” will swing the door open for making changes that you might have thought were impossible.
Whether we know it or not, we all get in our own way. Based on a successful global training program by the same name, Coach Your Self Up provides innovative practical techniques for identifying and breaking through behaviors and thought patterns that may be blocking your success at work and in life.
But the even bigger and bolder message of this book is this: by learning to be your own coach, you can make sustainable changes to become more effective and realize more of your potential.
Self-coaching is about becoming more self-aware. Normant lays the foundation by synthesizing important findings on self-awareness from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science. While steeped in science, Coach Your Self Up goes on to be up close and personal.

It’s Not WHAT you do, it’s HOW you show up

This book gives you a step-by-step approach for making sustainable desired shifts in HOW you show up at work…and in life.
