About the Book

Intentionally becoming different is not about just being different for the sake of sticking out from the crowd or ditching some old habits. Intentionally becoming different is about gaining clarity about yourself and unleashing a lasting transformation of creating a better version of yourself. Intentionally becoming different is also not about best practices which have helped other people to become successful. Best practice sharing is not the silver bullet for getting best results. New things emerge by looking at things differently. Intentionally becoming different is about looking at yourself from a different perspective by asking questions you may have never asked yourself. It is about finding out what works best for you by intentionally changing your underlying mindsets as well as your related practices and behaviors. Find the I in your LIFE.

“This book is your ticket for an engaging coaching journey of more than half a dozen virtual coaching sessions, guided by carefully crafted models, frameworks and insightful questions.”
