Coach’s Manifesto *
You and I we meet as strangers
Each carrying a mystery within us
I cannot say who you are;
I may never know you completely,
But I trust that you are a person in your own right,
Possessed of a beauty and value that are the Earth’s richest treasures.
So I make this promise to you;
I will impose no identities upon you, but will invite you
To become yourself without shame or fear,
I will hold open a space for you in the World
And allow your right to fill it with an authentic
Vocation and purpose
For as long as this search takes, you have my loyalty
