The Duck and the Butterfly on Author Hour

I recently had the pleasure of joining Charlie Hoehn on his podcast Author Hour, to discuss my book The Duck and the Butterfly: Coaching Questions for Leaders at Work. During the episode, I share some of my favourite and most powerful questions to help you lead your life, lead others, lead organizations and create a positive difference in the world.

Be A Better Coach

I believe that if you’re trying to improve yourself or boost the value of a team meeting or energize a strategy session, you simply need to ask the right question.

This book is a toolkit for any new coach who wants to be transformational in their coaching. Whether you’re a leader or an actual professional coach, it arms you with questions that can change lives or teams.

 Why The Duck and the Butterfly?

When you ask a good question, you’ve got to shut the duck up and listen to the answer. The butterfly is symbolic of the transformation that can occur after the right question is asked and answered.

More than just coaching questions

I wanted to write a book that coaches, leaders, and individuals could use to open up new, more thought-provoking conversation. A book that would lead others to be more intentional about how they live their lives, the value they are living, what their purpose is, and how they can create more wellbeing and authenticity in their life.

This book is for those who are interested going deep with themselves and reflecting not only on what they want to do but how they want to be as a person and how they want to grow as a result of whatever challenges are in front of them. It’s hard to get there if you don’t ask yourself really good questions and take the time to reflect.

 A toolkit for changing lives

The book contains over 1000 questions that you can use to help yourself and others on the path of self-actualization and fulfillment. I want readers to think about what goals that feel like they are a mission or calling. I want to help people determine their purpose. I also want our world to continue to evolve in positive ways.
