I was reading a recent article by Bob Veres and here is what he had to say about Coaching, and I couldn’t agree more. “Many of the best-performing advisors I talk with have a coach. It’s very difficult to see your own blind spots without an outside perspective, and it can be difficult, with all the outside distractions of managing your office, career and life, to hold yourself accountable for positive change. Reflection and perspective. Most advisors I talk with don’t really know where they want to be in five years, which means they won’t get there. You’re constantly told to have a plan in place, and that’s important. But you should also set aside an hour a week to just think about what you want to happen in your business and personal life, and how you might get there. Keeping the big picture in mind, brainstorming with yourself, identifying goals that most people are too busy to think about are probably the best use of your time all week. And that hour a week, and the hours spent on designing and updating your plan, will be the hardest time to find in your schedule. Your worklife conspires against you.” – Bob Veres (8/12/15)
No matter what industry you are in, most successful people have a coach or someone who helps hold them accountable to do what they need to do in order to be in the highest probability position to achieve their goals – professional and personal.
If coaches have one thing in common, it’s that they are ruthlessly results-oriented.

try doing what your Coach told you to do the first time”.

I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.
