Being Remembered

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

--Maya Angelou

What are you doing daily to be remembered?

Quick thought, Judith: I believe that this simple dictum separates the master coaches from the rest. One reason I've been successful as a coach is because I was exposed to both extremes of this when I received intensive coaching early in my career as a consultant and trainer. 25 years later I DISTINCTLY remember how I felt on the receiving end of specific coaching sessions though I remember little of the contents.

John...I remember the same lessons from trainers and teachers. Those who made me feel best were the lessons I remembered most. They were also lessons that I myself taught others, though they had more to do with understanding students/seminar participants, and creating an atomosphere of trust. A master coach is one who truly puts the other ahead of him/herself and in so doing seeks the best way to understand as opposed to being understood.

Glad you popped in. Happy writing!
