Published 25 days ago • 1 min read

Hi Coach,

Last week, I asked for your top book, podcast, or article recommendations and received great responses!

Here’s what your fellow coaches and consultants have found impactful this year so far:

Mothering Our Boys by Maggie Dent - Recommended by Tasha
This book dives into building stronger relationships as a parent, teacher, or role model. It offers insights into how men process and grow differently, requiring unique approaches to parenting and communication. It also provides a fresh perspective on empathy and understanding for others.

$100M Leads by Alex Hormozi - Recommended by Martin
A valuable resource for anyone looking to generate leads and grow their business.

Smart Brevity: The Power of Saying More with Less by Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen, and Royal Schwartz - Recommended by Jeff
This book is a fantastic read for coaches and mentors, emphasising the power of concise and effective communication.

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life’s Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom - Recommended by Jeff
Another great recommendation for coaches and mentors, this book offers profound life lessons through the lens of an inspiring relationship.

Rowan Cheung and The Rundown AI Newsletter - Recommended by Ric
Instead of a book, Ric recommended following Rowan Cheung on Twitter and subscribing to his daily newsletter. This has transformed Ric’s view on how AI can be used in business and life, showcasing continuous value from a content creator and curator.

The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday - Recommended by Moby
This book goes beyond resilience, teaching how to use obstacles as opportunities, making it a powerful read for anyone facing challenges.

Who Not How by Dan Sullivan - Recommended by Jen
This book encourages thinking differently about scaling and growing. Jen also recommends “10x is Better Than 2x” for further insights.

The Pathless Path by Paul Millerd and 10x is Easier than 2x by Dan Sullivan - Recommended by Ruth
Both books offer unique perspectives on career paths and growth, with “The Pathless Path” challenging conventional career advice and “10x is Easier than 2x” providing insights on scaling effectively.

Podcasts and Books - Recommended by Craig

I hope these recommendations inspire and empower you as you continue to grow.

Have a great week in business!

However, the increase in clients has created tension. Now, I find us talking about how to get more stuff off their plate and delegate it to the client—the way it should have been from the beginning. We don’t want to be doing tasks that diminish our authority. Administrative tasks do precisely that. So, what can you delegate to your...

Hi Coach, One of my clients was venting about a particularly frustrating situation with one of their clients. You know the kind of venting I’m talking about—usually happens at home, unloading all the day’s frustrations to a patient partner. Now, here’s the thing: when we find ourselves complaining about our clients, it’s a clear signal. It means there’s a conversation we need to have with our client that we’re avoiding. Complaints are like the practice rounds for the actual conversation that...
