Well, you made it. This is the last lesson of the last habit. To finish off the Educate Yourself habit, let’s go over some additional resources. You won’t use these resources regularly, but when you need them you’ll really need them. Consider them last minute additions to your utility belt.

Every organization is a unique snowflake and sometimes you need some one-on-one attention. If your organization is dealing with something particularly sticky, try a coaching session with a Certified Coach.
