When you read a book do you:

  • Keep every page squeaky clean
  • Annotate using a sharp pencil
  • Swipe with a highlighter pen!?

Whichever your preference, there’s no doubt that skimming a highlighted book or document helps you easily pick out the bits that seemed important… even when you wonder what made you mark some of them up!

In coaching, we offer back short words, phrases or headlines that the thinker is using. And we offer back as a question. One of the reasons for this, is that those short words, phrases or headlines become like a highlighter pen – so when you come back to them the thinker remembers that those words were theirs.’
