Depth Coaching

AUTHOR(S): Patricia R. Adson
PUBLISHER: Center for Applications of Psychological Type, 2004

Depth Coaching
 

Discover your own hero's journey and how to encourage others on their paths to self-understanding. In Depth Coaching, author Pat Adson explores the skills and attitudes needed to assist people in developing their full potential. As a detailed guide for therapists, life coaches and anyone interested in helping others on the journey, this book provides the tools for an intense study of personal developmental issues. Based on the work of Carol Pearson, co-developer of the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicators® instrument, Depth Coaching emphasizes the practice of positive psychology based on development rather than disease. Each section of the journey contains a workbook.

Initially resisting the call to become a life coach, author and psychologist Pat Adson discovered the rewarding benefits of helping others explore paths to meaning and balance. She notes, however, that this is a vocation undertaken only after one has fulfilled his or her own journey. Inspired by Carol Pearson's work with self-development through archetypes, Adson set out to explore her own "hero's journey." The result of her exploration is this step-by-step guide created for all who wish to take the journey or to coach others on their paths.

"Coaching as a discipline," Adson tells readers, "is a client-centered way of working with individuals to help them achieve their goals, balance their lives, and attain fulfillment. Coaching focuses on clients' lifelong development rather than the remediation of past wounds. The coach and client collaborate as partners or peers in a relationship that is symmetric rather than paternalistic.

Therapists, educators, and spiritual leaders will find Adson's methods useful in developing their own strengths as well as encouraging clients toward embarking on their personal journeys. Individuals and anyone who wishes to support themselves or others through growth and development will also find this work enlightening and helpful.

Building on the powerful fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, a dynamic framework identifies four key types—Stabilizers, Harmonizers, Catalysts, and Visionaries—and combines with research and stories from over 500 people to chart a journey of self discovery and beyond. With dozens of exercises, assessment tools, and examples, Making a Difference by Being Yourself delivers a complete toolkit to take personal insight and awareness to the next level: to live life consciously and exploit our strengths and talents in ways that make a meaningful difference.

The Impulse Factor: An Innovative Approach to Better Decision Making

AUTHOR(S): Nick Tasler
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing Group, 2009

The Impulse Factor: An Innovative Approach to Better Decision Making
 

"In his work as research and development director at cutting-edge think tank TalentSmart, where he helps businesses work better and employees think smarter, Nick Tasler realized that the recent discovery by scientists of a potential-seeking gene could have a remarkable impact on how we understand decision making. Those who have this gene — about one quarter of the population — are endowed with impulsive tendencies that can lead to fast and decisive action or to foolish choices. The cautious majority that Tasler calls risk managers can make carefully considered decisions or become hopelessly lost in the fog of details. Now The Impulse Factor offers readers a unique online opportunity to analyze their own decision-making style and harness it to improve their everyday lives. Each book comes with access to a proprietary assessment developed specifically to evaluate impulsivity. With examples from business, psychology, and Tasler's own research at TalentSmart, the book also vividly illustrates how susceptible we are to the events around us and how our reactions often run contrary to our best interests.

By combining his research with real-world examples of extreme decision making, Tasler teaches readers how to thrive when faced with difficult choices. More than just a book, The Impulse Factor provides a clear understanding of why you make the choices you do — and the tools to make those decisions change your business and your life.
