Imagination is more important than knowledge …
There is nothing new under the sun, but there are lots of old things we don’t know yet.
An expert is someone who knows no more than you do, but who has it better organized and uses slides.
It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
The guys at Project management knowledge underlined the importance of lessons learned in project management (full article at http://project-management-knowledge.com/lessons-learned-in-project-management).

Martha Retallick at Freelance switch (http://freelanceswitch.com/author/retallick/) writes an article on the importance of mentoring and diffenet types of possible mentors (full article at http://freelanceswitch.com/inspiration/benefits-of-mentoring/).
Mentoring is an ongoing process throughout the working life: at first you’re the mentee and then you become a mentor.
Is an enabler of knowledge and productivity too many times forgot and confused with wasting time.
Is not only a way to take care of people, but is a way to make them more productive, especially if based on a structured process of mentoring and not left to employee good will.

Ilead365 (http://www.ilead365.com/) reports Auschwitz survivor Viktor Frankl words on our capability to interact with fate, saying that “[…] You can take everything away from another human being, but for one thing: the possibility to choose his own way in which to react to a given situation”.
Most of the people think that bringing our own knowledge to others is the key of successfull coaching.
But is only a way of make us believable in front of others (You did it, so you’re experienced and I can trust you), because each one of us is likely to behave in very different ways at same situation.
Old latins said that everyone makes is own life (quisque artifex fortune suae).
It was true once upon a time, and I believe is still quite true. Now is a little more complex because of the globalized world we live in and the multiple interactions we have to take care.
