Coaching is a good choice for you if you want to write and research your book yourself, but you don’t want to master all the details of turning your ideas into a great book. It’s the best choice if you’re the sort of person who uses writing as a learning tool. Coaching lets you use the expertise I’ve developed over decades of writing and coaching to help you concentrate on the stories and ideas in your book without mastering the many details of the book writing and publishing process. Here are examples of how coaching has worked for three clients.
Susan is a successful consultant who’s noticed a gap in the books on her specialty. In our first sessions together we clarified her market and message and developed a preliminary outline for the book. We designed a protocol for original research. We’ve since modified the outline and we’re reviewing every chapter as she writes it. I’m also guiding her through the process of deciding how to publish and completing that portion of the project. Here’s what Susan has to say about our project.
Anthony has a very successful blog, so successful that he’s been approached about turning his insights into a book. We’ve worked together to outline how the ideas in his blog posts need to be presented in a book and to sharpen his descriptions.
Mary Jo wanted to write a book to share the personal development lessons she’s taught as a top executive coach. In a minimum number of sessions, we clarified her audience, purpose, and the structure of her book. That’s all she needed. Here’s what Mary Jo said about my coaching.
