I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” – Bob Nardelli.
You wouldn’t expect Lebron James to be the athlete he is today without the help of mentors or personal coaches, right? You wouldn’t expect an American football team to enter a stadium without it’s coach, right?
A good coach would help you clarify things and even put you in the right direction of where you’re going.
Back in 2004, I joined track and field at my high school. I thought I was going to be one of the top people on the team, but I ended up being the bottom 5%.
One day at practice, my coach pulled me aside and a childhood friend and said, “here, Arsenio. I want you to get over these sticks.” Those sticks were hurdles. He knew that I didn’t have the amount of strength in my legs to run the breakneck 100m or 200m runs, so he decided me to put me on hurdles.
What a decision that was!
I made it to the sunrise regional championships three straight years and lettered each year. Coaches always know best.
Why Coaching Works
- Determine your values, vision, mission, purpose, and goals
- Determine specific action steps to help you achieve those goals
- Sort through opportunities
- Maintain focus on your top priorities
- Achieve greater balance in your life while still accomplishing your business or career goals
The end goal is learning how to coach others. If you know the basic steps and skills of coaching, it will make you a better parent, spouse, teacher, manager, network, marketer, athletic coach, and even a better friend.
