Praise for Renewal Coaching Fieldbook

"Elle and Douglas have written an important book that could change the way business is done by changing the lives of people doing it. In our fantastically connected planet, worldwide commerce impacts all of us immediately, making almost nothing more important for our long term success than committing to meaningful work lives aimed at the 'greater good.' As Elle and Douglas suggest, individual happiness and global happiness will be the outcomes. If this is what you want in your own life—and I hope you do—read this book!"—Rick Foster, co-author, How We Choose to Be Happy and Happiness & Health; publisher, SustainableHappinessCourse.com

"The questions in this book will help you generate new ideas and ways of thinking about your predicaments. They will provide you with the way forward to hope, excitement, and satisfaction in service of a greater good."—Daniel J. Pesut, PhD, RN, professor of nursing, Certified Hudson Institute Coach, Indiana University, Indianapolis

"This is not a fairytale approach to leadership where all is good and everyone is happy. It is a skillfully written manual that addresses the challenges and hard times leaders experience and makes resiliency visible and sustained happiness attainable."—Dr. Kristine Servais, former principal and professor of leadership, North Central College, Naperville, Illinois
