2. Promotions and Special Offers
As mentioned during our Launch Webinar we want to further extend the value of everything that Shadowmatch offers through promotions and special offers. This initiative will introduce new developments and/or reports or will happen just because we value our Shadowmatch friends and family so much, that we want to spoil you from time-to-time.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, our first promotion will help to spread some love and help you manage the relationships in your life more successfully. From the week of Valentine’s Day (13 – 17 February), all Relationship Reports will have a 40% discount.

5. Become a Powerful Coach
The coaching industry and being able to coach (whether as a full-time coach, or as a leader, manager, or any other profession) is becoming ever more important. In fact, leaders and managers cannot afford not to coach!
However, getting started with your journey as a coach can be overwhelming and, quite frankly, expensive! Coaching 101 was designed to introduce people to coaching and the coaching industry in a measured, structured and organised way. Plus, it does not cost an arm and a leg!
Coaching can be such a powerful way to develop others, and Rescript Consulting has demystified using coaching as a development, leadership and management tool in this accessible, online course.
Whether you want to become a qualified independent coach, want to incorporate coaching in your practice, or use it in leadership and management, this course is for you!

6. Through the Looking Glass Into the Mirror
We would like to share a book written by Pieter de Villiers, Lizette de Villiers and Dr Jan Niemand titled, Through the Looking Glass Into the Mirror.
The book is about the perspectives on the future of business, education, parenting, politics and more. Any discussion about the future can become a stressful experience. It is a pattern that repeats itself in every generation. There are many perspectives among people about what the future holds and, in most situations, there are five broad groups.
The one group are those who hold on to the past. What they know and how things have always worked are the realities they want to pursue and the mechanisms of life with which they are comfortable.
The second group are those who do not like thinking and talking about possible future developments and they are very passive in their acquiring of knowledge and thinking about the things to come.
The third group are the ones that cannot wait for future things to happen, especially on a technological front. They actively search for new technologies.
The fourth group is very small. They are the minority of society but they are the ones who have and who will shape our future world. They are the ones who design, develop and build the future.
Group number five is the most interesting of all. They are the ones who do not know that there is a future world that is unfolding. They live and work for today. Tomorrow, they will again live and work for the day or the week.
This book is for everybody. It is an easy read with emphasis on practical, everyday things that touch the lives of many people. It is based on existing patterns that are used to anticipate future developments in specific areas. The aim is to inform and share ideas. The authors are convinced that the things they anticipate will happen. Patterns and trends are the most reliable constructs to use when it is necessary to anticipate future events.
The book has been written to integrate different areas of change and how it will influence the same space of our existence. An example will explain. Changing weather patterns will influence the way we work, build business, produce food and the places where people live.
The authors trust that you will experience this as an information rich experience with practical value for your life.
