Oh dear, I seem to have been cast in the role of the villain this week with my coaching clients! One of my jobs is to keep them focused and moving forward - they ask me to do that. But, when it comes to holiday time, they're a bit put out when I don't ease off!
What's a coach to do? If I just chatted about this and that, they'd feel as if they hadn't got their money's worth for that session.
When I got back in the office after a client meeting today, I found that I couldn't get hold of many people on the phone! I guess they've already left for the holidays.
I think I'll take the hint and finish up until next week. So, have a lovely Christmas (try and relax!) and my best wishes for a wonderful 2008.
