We don’t think twice when it comes to having teachers, tutors and coaches when we are younger, but when we reach adulthood it becomes easy to ignore the importance of having support in place for both our personal and business lives. Many perceive coaching as only for the underperformers, however, this is far from the truth. No matter their field of expertise, any successful person will tell you that to achieve their goals they had to seek help and support from others!
The saying “two minds are better than one” certainly applies to coaching. A coach will bring innovative ideas and encourage you to think outside the box. They have an unbiased mindset and provide an unbiased viewpoint with which to discuss ideas and help to weigh up different options. A coach will help you to overcome doubts and increase your confidence in your decisions.
A coach will give you increased clarity by helping you to focus on what is the best next step for your business. It doesn’t matter if they are not an expert in your field- they are not there to teach you about your line of work, but instead provide you with an alternative perspective. Simply the process of explaining your day-to-day role can help you to gain an understanding of areas for improvement.
You become accountable to your coach which makes you are more likely to commit to your goals without making excuses. This will put you into the right mindset and allow you to achieve your aims for the new year. By breaking down your ideas and objectives you’ll be able to structure a plan to accomplish them, whether it be for the next day, week, month, year or 10 years!
