Recommendation

Kate Swoboda, director of the Courageous Living Coach Certification program, shares her journey and those of numerous clients to help you overcome the fear that stops you from living your dreams. She mixes anecdotes with written and reflective exercises and offers supportive online worksheets. Swoboda provides a potentially uncomfortable but useful examination of how you react and deal with fear, your inner critical voice, and the absolute truths that traumatic or repeated experiences can carve into rock. Her exercises take time, but they’ll nourish new self-knowledge. Swoboda doesn’t repeat aphorisms or wave magic wands; she focuses on long-term, daily work. You can read the book quickly, but the work takes much longer. Nevertheless, it can only strengthen your self-awareness and your relationships. Managers, leaders and staff can apply her insights to challenge, understand and overcome their own self-doubt, fears and limitations.
