Why Have A Coach?
There are many positive benefits to working with a coach but
it's not necessarily the right decision for everyone.
Firstly, you need to want to make a change to your life and
secondly, there is a gap between where you are now and where
you want to be.
When you start working with a coach you will get:
* Time to focus on YOU and what you want to achieve.
* Achieve greater results in less time.
* Someone to challenge, motivate and support you.
* Help you come up with a fresh approach to an old problem.
* A safe supportive environment to discuss your issues and
test out your ideas.
* Your personal development mentor.
* Accountability, motivation and commitment.
* Create an action plan and support you in achieving it.
1. You will set realistic goals that last.
A coach will help you find the goals that are really important
to you. How often do you take time to step back and think
about what you really want and where you're going in life?
You don't want to look back 10, 20 years from now and think
what might have been. If you decide on realistic goals and
what's really important to you, the changes you make will
have longer lasting results.
2. You will get where you want to go quicker.
Some people are highly motivated and know exactly what they
want, what they need to do and how they're going to get there.
They set targets, they achieve them and they don't give up.
Most of us however, could benefit from a helping hand. Some
guidance, signposts, a map, someone to point you in the right
direction and keep you on track can be pretty useful.
3. Make better decisions and set better priorities.
Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed, have a difficult decision
to make and not know what to do next? The right questions
and talking your ideas and issues through with an objective,
non-judgemental person can help you see where you need to
go and how to make the right decision. A coach has the tools,
techniques and strategies so you make fewer mistakes and will
save you time, effort and money.
4. You'll move up a gear.
It's often difficult to get motivated when life becomes one
long routine of working hard and very little time to play.
Your coach will help you work out where you are and where
you want to get to or help get you started in a new direction
- either in your work, business life or personal development.
You will use your time more effectively and be more productive
because you know where you're going.
5. You'll have a better balanced lifestyle.
There's more to life than work. There are a number of things
that are important to you in your life - health, family, relationships,
friends, career or business, money. When you make changes
to improve your life and work environment you will be happier
and have more time and energy for what you enjoy. This will
have a positive effect on those around you.
6. Support, motivation and accountability.
A coach offers a totally objective point of view. They can
be a sounding board for your ideas. You will have an environment
in which you get a chance to spend time on 'you'. Your issues,
ideas and goals. You will challenge yourself more because
you have support, motivation and can afford to stretch yourself
further than doing it on your own. Your coach will keep you
accountable and on track.
Professional athletes have a coach to help them train hard
and achieve the success they want. Their coach isn't a better
athlete than them, the athlete has the skill and ability -
the coach guides, motivates and pushes them so they become
faster, stronger and win.
If you tell someone your goals you are 60% more likely to
If you have a coach you are 95% more likely to achieve them.
