2. Gorett draws a few parallels between coaching and teaching, but explains that coaching is more client focused than teaching. She also describes the 2 challenges that people who find her are typically experiencing including career advancement and finding direction in their professional life.

3. Gorett explains the concept of having an essential self, and a social self, and how they are shaped and formed. She also brings to light that choices made for the social self can often be in conflict with what is good for the essential self.
