Coaching is a tool that successful professionals, business owners, and companies use to achieve next level results.
In sports most people understand the role and necessity of a coach in the domain of:
Setting and reaching goals
Attaining results that are consistent with peak performance
Creating a winning partnership through support, feedback, and clarity
How is coaching different from advice?
A coach’s role in working with a client involves helping them discover their own brilliance and drawing out their own knowledge and wisdom to find the solutions that work best for them. The coach does not have the answers, but asks the questions and provides the insight that allow the client to find their own path to success and fulfillment.
A coach enables you to find your own answers by:
Asking questions that uncover hidden insights
Making specific and powerful request
Actively listening for what’s next, most needed, or missing
Expecting your best
Always being direct – giving straight and candid feedback
Being your partner in clarifying difficult issues and next steps
Assigning homework that forwards your goals and commitments
