Congratulations to longtime blogger friend Denny Coates. He has published two books I am looking forward to reading: the first, co-written with his wife, Kathleen Scott, also a blogger friend and travel writer (currently working on a mystery novel), is Conversations with the Wise Aunt, and the second is Conversations with the Wise Uncle. Subhead for both books is “the secret to being a strong teenager and preparing for success as an adult.” Wish I had been exposed to such resources when I was a teen!
About Dr. Coates: (quoted from the “About” section of his website, How to Raise a Teenager)
Dr. Dennis Coates has been CEO of Performance Support Systems, Inc., since 1987. In 1988 he developed MindFrames, a personality assessment based on cognitive neuroscience. In 1994 he created 20/20 Insight, an online multi-source behavior feedback system, used by millions of people worldwide. He is also the creator of ProStar Coach, an online virtual coaching service for developing personal strengths and people skills. Over the years, his programs have helped millions of people worldwide grow stronger for the challenges of work and life. These days he spends most of his time writing about personal development, communication skills, personal strength and parenting teens.
ProStar Coach was originally created for success-oriented adults and people in the workplace who want to give themselves an edge to achieve their goals. Because of its rich content in the area of personal strengths and people skills, along with its emphasis on engaging critical thinking in learning exercises and changing behavior patterns, it’s an outstanding personal development tool for teens and parents of teens.
