Most enjoyable work project and why: Grooming, developing and mentoring several coaches to deliver greater impact on their clients. These are individuals who coach on the side and hold full-time jobs as consultants, teachers and executives. They are already in a position to contribute to others, and therefore helping them sharpen their skills escalated their confidence and effectiveness.
