Books of interest to you:

Clients are hiring you because of you. Be careful not to lose yourself in your coaching relationships. You are you who happens to be called to coaching. You are not a coach first with you coming out of coaching. It is easy for those two things - you and coach - to get flipped. If that happens, you won't be good to anyone, certainly not to your clients!
