A good friend of mine back in the 70’s told me something I remember to this day. “If I’m a hammer – you are a nail.” ( He told me that after I complained about an accountant and how he would not add a footnote to my financials expounding upon our marketing and sales success that I wanted so I could show my clients “how successful we were) My friend spoke the truth … an Accountant sees numbers; a Doctor sees illness … so it is with all professions – we see what we are and what fits into our World (to that end a Doctor’s advice about Financial Statements is not going to be that useful!)
Coaches have found how to succeed in many different industries by “seeing” people not industries. In business there are stacks of books explaining what works, what’s needed to succeed, how too’s, etc. The common denominator is people. My experience proves the theory that People who set and achieve their goals, goals that are aligned with their values, balanced so that their entire life is provided for – family, business, industry, etc they are the Leaders who have developed a system to achieve that, replicate that and who love what they are doing. They have discovered their “authentic natural talents” they have developed them into what produces (under their terms), and in their time frame what they have set out to accomplish. They willingly share their knowledge with others and even with competition from others they have shared their “secrets with” they always come out on top. (The teacher ALWAYS learns more than the students in class) “Givers get”
So Business Coaching is the ability to access what is needed, evaluate what is currently available, and help the student articulate what really drives them, where they want to be 1-3 years from now, provide honest feedback, have an unwavering belief in their students ability to achieve what they want and understand the concept of “Good, Better, Best,” … all business owners, executives, etc fall into the good, better, best categories; some want to be good, some the best, regardless the Coach is there to get them from where they are to where they want to be – no judgments, no hidden agendas, the Coach is to facilitate the students (clients) heartfelt desires.
