There’s one thing that can really frustrate you when coaching or consulting, especially if you’re a strategic thinker. The people we serve are often more interested in tactics than in strategy.

They want to know what they can DO, before they care about the WHY behind it. That frustrated me for a long time, until I came across something really interesting in a music magazine.
