My philosophy for coaching has evolved over the years in all the best ways. Coaching is about helping those that I work with to achieve their true potential. It’s about intentionality, strategy, focus, commitment and passion. Above all, coaching is about results. A coach is not there to provide all the answers or advice. Instead it’s my belief that everyone has the answers within themselves and the practice of coaching is to help them find those answers and bring them to the surface where they can be converted into positive action.
My objective is to outline the goals that are most important to my advisors, develop a strategy, put it to action and discuss progress in each session that we have together – what gets measured, gets done. To be successful with any goals or even the strategy built around those goals there are two key elements that must be adopted:
It’s easy to go through the motions of the day. It’s also easy to get caught up in all the busy work that our business creates for us. I have found those that lack the ability to be highly intentional with their habits and their time fall behind with reaching their goals and objectives. With a 12 week business plan, my advisors are able to work more intentional with me on reaching their goals, tapping in to their true potential and achieving the level of success they desire personally and professionally. With a 12 week plan as opposed to the traditional annual business plan, we are able to carve out the most immediate and impactful goals and strategies that brings us closer to the successes we strive to achieve.
Coaching is a progressive process where obstacles are converted to stepping stones and where each step brings my advisors closer to the fulfillment of their desires and potential. Those that embark on this journey with me are generally in one of two places:
1. Feeling stuck
2. Eager to grow / take the business to the next level
With an outside coaching perspective, advisors are able to overcome both of these to reach the highest levels of success they desire.
Most that have had success in their career tend to shy away from coaching as they believe they know everything they need to at this point – they’ve “mastered” the business. It’s important to remember the point I made at the start – a coach is not there to provide answers and advice. As a coach, I want to give my advisors the space to explore all that is possible for their business and their success and help them create a roadmap that aligns with customized strategies for achieving all that they envision. Running a business means never having much time to dedicate to this area. As your coach, I ensure we make that time and make it as productive and impactful as possible.
