When you ask yourself this question, how do you choose?
You could invest a few thousand dollars, but it isn’t worth it if you’re not able to create value for your clients. What would you use it for if you had unlimited time?
But the answer can never be “I can’t pay for it.”
For my clients, the answer is worth it.
So if you can’t afford to pay for someone else’s time, where is a business coach going to come into his or her own?
So what happens when your business coach turns 10?
As a high school teacher, I would like to say, “If you have a good education, you should pursue your own education.” That’s a great solution. But that would make me feel better about myself.
So what about a business coach that has years of experience creating value for his or her clients?
This is probably how most coaches who are starting out come into the professional sports world. They want to “get the best” out of their students.
Here’s a tip. When you coach someone, do you focus on your weaknesses? And how can you make him/her succeed, instead of focusing on what you hate?
There isn’t a magic formula for this. It’s a decision between two options. Do you emphasize your strengths and skills to create a positive outcome when you coach your students, or do you minimize your weaknesses and focus on the positives?
Either way results are good.
So what’s the point of coaching other people if you can’t even find one who works with your business issues?
That, my friends, is the real beauty of coaching people. It’s not about being right. It’s about being your best self at whatever it is you want to be.
How do you learn this?
When I was a player, I’d talk to another player and learn more about their situation than they would. It took years, as I felt like the coach was taking away my knowledge.
But, listening is the key. So, when you talk to someone about whatever, listen well. Listen what they say. If they want something done differently, challenge it rather than give in to them. Listen to what they’re trying to say. Listen to what they’re telling you.
What you’re listening to often ends up being your guiding model.
