I have an addiction to audiobooks. I listen while cooking, cleaning, exercising, and more. My love of audiobooks began years ago when I spent many hours driving my daughter to sports competitions. So when The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum popped up on my recommendations, I couldn't resist making this story my companion for my Thanksgiving road trip.
This week I want to share a few insights that struck me, but first a quick refresher.
All of the characters whom Dorothy befriended were seeking traits they already possessed.
As I think about my role as a business coach, I am often like Dorothy. I'm a temporary visitor in someone else's company. My relationships with clients share the camaraderie and commitment demonstrated by Dorothy and her companions on their journey. I am like Oz, seeing the potential in others and giving them the confidence to let it shine. And every once in a while, I'm like Glenda the Good, offering knowledge or insight that turns possibility into reality.
It is no wonder that I love what I do and have made this my lifelong career. This Thanksgiving, I was reminded of my fortune in being able to continue a job that I love.
How do you relate to The Wonderful World of Oz? Are you on a quest in 2020? Whether you need a trusted thought partner, an infusion of confidence, or the magic of a fresh insight, I'd love to link arms and help you get there faster.
