Are you doing what you can do today?

Internationally acclaimed business coach and consultant Kim George provides an easy-to-master process for coaches, business owners, and leaders to bring out innate greatness and achieve peak performance. Individuals can step out of their safe but stagnant lives and, without struggle, do the things they most want to do by understanding and developing a revolutionary kind of intelligence, called Abundance Intelligence (AQ).

According to Kim George, the key to living into our greatness is moving from a mentality of scarcity to one of abundance. Her book awakens you and your clients to the real reasons people get stuck and don't do what they can do by introducing the concept that the ultimate scarcity is resisting who you are, often caused by past events, circumstances, or experiences. With this awareness, clients learn that they already have everything they need to do the things they want. Next, Kim George sets forth a four-step, cyclical living-into-greatness process that enables you and your clients to experience and build on success.

The living-into-greatness process is brought to life in discussions of seven key illusions: the illusions of not-enough, comparisons, struggle, control, time, hope, and certainty. Using the four-step living-into-greatness process, you'll learn to move anyone past the illusions to embrace the seven key abundance aptitudes of self-worth, empathy, self-expression, surrender, actualization, significance, and inquiry. Personal examples from the author's own life, client case studies, and profiles of highly successful individuals demonstrate how the process works and how it helps individuals live into greatness. This rigorous, tested approach is recommended for all coaches, business owners, managers, and leaders.
