Dr. Spencer Johnson, in his fun parable, Who Moved My Cheese?, asked a fundamental question. What happens when things out of our control change? How do we typically react? I have almost all of my coaching clients get this book.
In my coaching practice, it’s all about change. Something’s not working…relationships, finances or just life. It’s a series of changes and how we handle that change is the transition process. In my upcoming book, “Turning Midlife into the RIGHT Life!”,I look at the idea of change, through an easy, 3 Step approach for the Transition Cycle. Client stories are sprinkled through plus thought questions/exercises to create a journal that you can use.
I find that the more we’re in control of the change, the easier it becomes. When the change just happens, it’s tougher to handle.
That’s why I like Who Moved My Cheese? It looks at some big issues in a humorous way. It can be the jumping off point for creating an in-depth coaching program about your particular change/transition process and create an Action plan for you to move forward.
