You will set far better goals that motivate you in a healthy way.
Enter the coach, an expert in helping you to identify and set the goals that you really want, not the one’s that are shoulds, pipedreams, which you’ve been recycling or that mirror the goals of your parents, society or Madison Avenue.Choosing the right goals for you is an art and the coach takes the necessary time to help you clarify your personal values, so that you have something really solid on which to develop your goals. Value based goals are naturally motivating, but it takes good coaching to get to these.
You’ll accomplish goals and tasks and projects much more quickly
One of the reasons that people hire a coach is to save themselves time. Working with a coach, they learn how to be far more effective, efficient and productive in everything that they do, including their job / business or personal projects. We humans just aren’t that naturally effective, even if we think that we are. The coach has the tools and the techniques to share with their clients so that things get done in half the time. ( Even the coaching process is efficient – on the phone, three quarters of an hour a week, reasonable fee)
You’ll make fewer mistakes in your business life or in your personal life.
The old model of learning from your mistakes has deteriorated to be more like: How else will you learn if you don’t make mistakes? Too expensive, in our view. With a coach, you have a third eye, someone who’s been there and who has coached others in your situation, and an expert in getting the job done with minimum of fuss ( called learning curve, mistakes, errors in judgement, wrong tunnels, etc ). The costs (emotional, financial, time) of making mistakes have gotten very expensive in the past decade. A single mistake can ruin you in today’s hyper paced business environment. Some clients use their Coach as an inexpensive insurance policy.
You’ll move up to the next level of your personal and professional life
Almost everybody is moving up the ladder of business success, personal development, awareness and emotional balance. The coach can help you see where you are right now and point out ways to grow and get where you want to get. Or, if your not even on the ladder, the coach can guide you to it and help you get started on your path.
You’ll reduce the number of problems you have and better resolve the problems that are left.
The first step in solving a problem is to ask yourself why you have this problem at all. The second step is to ask yourself why you have problems at all. The third step is to get on track to having no problems — aka, becoming a problem free zone (PFZ). This is not a joke. Being a PFZ is becoming even more important along the path of sustainable success. You cannot afford to have problems, period. Life’s too short and problems are too expensive. A well-trained coach can help you become a PFZ. A well-trained coach is a PFZ themselves.
