One of the most gratifying aspects of writing the 50 Ways Coaches Can Change the World book was discovering the work of all the world-changing coaches I never knew about before. There wasn’t space in the book to feature them all, so I hope to introduce more of them to you on this website.
For example, Nancy Colasurdo, who you can read about in her article “Finding My Niche as a Volunteer Coach.” Nancy volunteered to spend time coaching a woman in a local homeless shelter despite the fact that Nancy was at the time struggling financially herself. Nancy says, “it seems I have found a significant part of myself by working with Mirna. Not one to do volunteer work most of my life, this coaching relationship has changed how I see myself in the world.”
Working to create positive change in the world also creates change within the changemaker. That’s certainly been my experience in writing this book.
