Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • How coaching is cropping up in various different areas
  • The big threat in the health, fitness and wellbeing industry
  • Why you should think about coaching a little more thoughtfully
  • Why coaching is invaluable
  • What makes a good coach

Key Takeaways:

  • A coach is not there to make friends with you; a coach is there to make sure you get to your goal. A coach motivates, inspires, drives, reinforces, and supports.
  • We don’t really push ourselves as hard as someone else will. We are often either too hard or too easy on ourselves.
  • A good coach will tell you when you’re either too tough on yourself or when you’re not doing enough.
  • A good coach brings in new ideas and different ways of doing things.
  • When you get stuck in a pattern of doing things or when you can’t see your big vision or purpose in the day-to-day that happens, a coach can really help you put things into perspective.
  • A good coach will understand the type of personality you are and work with you accordingly.
  • A good coach will hold you accountable for your actions and your stated goals and values.
  • Just about everybody benefits when they have a coach by their side. Across the board, people who are very, very capable of doing what they’re doing always have coaches.

Action Steps:

  • Think about coaching a little more thoughtfully and consider getting one in the areas where you might benefit from it. Explore the options that are out there for you.
  • Find an organization, a company or a coach that you think can help you. Have an initial conversation with them and figure out whether they’re going to be right for you.

Leanne said:

“[Coaching] holds a mirror up to you… and reflect back your actions and your statements, and then marry them to your stated values at the outset.

“We are very good at lying to ourselves, tiny little white lies but nonetheless lying to ourselves, cheating ourselves, negotiating with ourselves, and it can be tiresome and counterproductive. A good coach will not let you get away with that.”
