Best. Kudos. Ever.

A favorite coaching client recently convinced her partner to work with me on career coaching.

When he got home after meeting with me, he told her: “You’re not allowed to say ‘I told you so.’”

I think about that off-hand comment a lot. I can hear such love and humor and care for each other in it.

And it was a needed affirmation for me, one year into this journey of self employment. It was an affirmation that, yes, I am on the right track; that, yes, my coaching is relevant and useful.

I’ll take that off-hand comment over a performance review any day.
