It’s not a pregnancy. For one thing, the birth of a book, from conception to seeing the light of day, takes longer than nine months. For another, there is only one parent here (and a father in this case), which hardly means that this is an immaculate conception. But the growing activity and excitement that the midwives, nurses and doctors display even, on occasion, more than the parent, is catching. In this case, the professionals are the publishers, editors, marketers and designers. All I did was to write it. The birth date is July. The baby – sorry, book – will be called Emotional Fitness Coaching. It will be published by Kogan Page in London.
It’s intended for managers, leaders and business coaches, and it is the story of a manager who discovers E-Fitness and applies it in his new position as sales director. It will be a hugely valuable addition to the resources offered through the Emotional Fitness Institute. I’ll tell you more about the actual birth date, and I’ll introduce you to the new baby when I can actually cradle it in my hands. And, yes, I’m excited too.
