As your professional coach, I won’t wear a single hat…
I will wear many, and often simultaneously:
Mentor (been there, done that)
Task Master (every once in a while entrepreneurs need a kick in the booty)
Your Biggest Fan (I love it when my clients do great work!)
Disciplinarian (“Ya gotta stick to the deadline!”)
Confidante (what's shared with me stays with me)
Voice of Reason (sometimes you're too close to a situation to make the best decision)
Neutral Set of Eyes (my only agenda item is to see you succeed)
Comedian (occasionally you just have to laugh because it’s healthier than crying)
Ah, but can’t your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/mom/dad/best buddy/postman
act as your coach?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no and no.
An effective coach has no blood or emotional ties to you;
anyone who does will undoubtedly have the best of intentions
but will be unable and unsuitable to deliver the one key element I can promise you:
the commitment to always tell you what you need to hear,
which is not necessarily what you want to hear.
Huge difference, but it’s the reason why I will help you achieve success.
