Why do the best athletes, CEOs, movie stars, sales reps and other world-famous celebrities have coaches? Because they know the value of having a mentor to guide them in their career and relationships, to help them overcome fears and become even more successful. Sometimes, we just get so deep into our own mind that we can’t see other obvious options that a mentor /coach can see. Coaches can see where you are now, talk with you about your next big goals and help you make the progress you need to get there. They act as your partner and motivator while also holding you accountable.
Everyone needs a coach. We all need people to give us feedback. That’s how we improve.–Bill Gates
The majority of my clients hired me when they needed insight into what was next in their career. They also wanted to discuss the next steps to get them there. As a coach, I work with clients to create the roadmap with encouragement and appropriate feedback along the way. I see the potential they have and sometimes have to be the coach who says, “You’ve got this. You know you can try just a little bit more to reach the peak in your mind’s eye.”
My clients are competitive, successful and goal-oriented people.
How often do I talk with my clients? That depends on the client and the mission we are working on together. I let them decide how much coaching they want.
Do we meet in person, by phone or by zoom on the computer? I meet with clients in person when we can, or face to face on magnifi.io, zoom, skype or face-time. I’ll meet with my clients in any fashion they prefer because I want this to be a rewarding experience.
Is coaching expensive? I’ve always had the attitude that it’s not what something costs, but what it’s worth. How important is it for you to reach these BIG goals? What’s in it for you? How committed are you? How often do we need to meet or talk? In my opinion, when you can partner with someone who ‘gets it’ and is motivated by your success, it’s worth every dollar.
