This insightful and personal handbook offers business leaders, teachers, therapists, coaches--individuals from all walks of life--a working guide to help them modify, improve, and change their behavior.

* Understanding what holds habitual behavior in place is key to doing things differently.

* Improvement means making a new choice and replacing old behavior patterns with more effective and productive ones.

* Reinforcement emphasizes that practice with feedback brings improvement.

The author draws on a depth of experience to show us in a clear and simple way to create shift in our lives." -- Henry Kimsey-House "Author of Co-Active Coaching and co-founder of The Coaches Training Institute (CTI)"
