Lots of “successful” people say you need to have a coach if you want to play bigger and make a real impact on the world. (I put “successful” in quotes to indicate the dubious definition and often careless use of the term.)
So you’re “supposed” to hire a business coach if you want to make it big. But is it worth it?
I’ve worked with numerous coaches, counselors and mentors over the years. It isn’t until recently that I’ve discovered how much I’ve learned from each and every one of them.
It seems I learn best by osmosis, by exposing myself to the presence of these individuals. They show me a variation of what’s possible. They teach me tools and strategies for learning about myself.
I find myself using the things I’ve learned through working with them, almost without thinking. It’s become embedded in my DNA, and I find myself channeling their strength and wisdom as I work with other people.
Do you NEED a coach? No.
Is it worth it? Hell, yeah.
When you bring your all and meet another person in a dedicated space of power where she brings her all to meet you…amazing things can happen.
What experiences have you have with a coach or mentor?
