I love to laugh with my clients. There are times when I'm a little embarrassed, worried that we are making so much noise that we'll disturb people in offices nearby. What are we laughing about? You name it. Sometimes the more critical the situation the more you need a good belly laugh.
One of the funniest things in the world, and certainly a subject that comes up a lot in coaching work, is how utterly terrible we are when it comes to change. We are absurd. We are failures waiting to happen. We make endless mistakes and a million wrong calls. If you don't have a sense of humor about this, then you'll never persevere long enough to get it right.
Learning to do something new takes a light touch. Have fun with it.
