VISION Journal: Issue 1

Welcome to the Vision Journal for April.

Hi Everyone


This month’s edition has been slightly delayed as I’ve been working on some really exciting developments.

Statements by coachees that generalize without appropriate evidence.

They include:
Universal quantifiers – statements that create sweeping generalizations.
Modal operators of necessity and possibility – statements that imply compulsion or lack of choice.

Statements by coachees that leave vital details out.

Resilience is the ability of an individual to respond to life’s challenges with positivity and fullness of spirit – thereby rising above them with comparative ease.
