Coaching Matters: Around the Web March 2013

bookpileMy good friend and mentor, Ged White (give him a follow on Twitter @gedirugby), writes a monthly newsletter for the coaches in his network called Coaching Matters which I find extremely beneficial. It covers many aspects of the coaching process and often links to interesting content around the web.

I thought this may be of interest to other coaches outside the network and putting them up here as posts means there will be an online archive.

If you have written or know of similar content that would be good for future posts then please let me know via or on Twitter @SiNainby.
