Channel Your Inner-Olympian in Business and Life By Working With a Great Coach
In today’s working world, I find that there are some key things that are missing from our business practices and our lives in general.
One of the first is identifying why the need for a great coach can be so transforming in almost all aspects of business and life and not just sports.
“Olympians who want to succeed on a global level know that they need a great coach.”
They need, want, and require this person for a number of reasons, but some of the most important are as follows. A great coach will help to keep you focused, keep your head in the game and pointed in the right direction. A great coach will eliminate distractions for you and bring your goal back into a direct line of vision. This is critical especially in today’s world where the potential distractions are surrounding us every minute of each day.
Business executives and leaders who truly want to be at the top of their game need a great coach for the very same reasons! Business is no different from any professional sport. If you want to be your optimum self, if you want to win, if you want to be the best, if you want to succeed, you should find value in this investment for yourself and, your future on the business playing field.
Great coaches will also bring a varied viewpoint in most cases. They serve as a separate set of eyes, and ears for you. They have non-biased observations of a situation. They are people you trust. Coaches can and should play a pivotal role in challenging your thoughts and providing insight or ideas that you hadn’t yet thought about.
Coaches should serve to broaden your thought process and expand your potential for limitless ideas and solutions. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with great minds in various industries. I have always valued the different perspectives that leaders have shared with me. In fact, often those perspectives have been a catalyst for a change in my life that turned out to be catalysts for progress and growth.
Great coaches will push you beyond what you perceive your limits to be. They will expand your mind and your understanding of most things. They will also do this in a manner that motivates and inspires you to reach your greatest potential. They have this gift with individuals and with teams/groups of people. They encourage expansion and growth. People want to follow and listen to great coaches because a great coach is passionate about helping others to become their best.
A great coach is gifted with the ability to fire people up, to produce the best possible results, and triggers that internal desire that makes anyone want to succeed!
