Add yourself to your coaching…..
You’re approach is your approach. No one else can put your thoughts across in the way you do.
So why do we look for the perfect solution and try to copy that?
The perfect programme, the perfect coaching approach, the best excel spreadsheet that makes everything look just right.
I’m all for examining good practise, what makes it good, why does it work?
So modelling is great, and taking things, adding your own twist to them and putting that across is smart.
Here’s the biggest question. What do you bring to the table?
What’s your USP (Unique Selling Point)?
What areas of your coaching can people look at you and think “that’s awesome, I’ll use it?”
What works for you in your environment, your practise?
I’ve looked at coaches I thought did a great job and tried to imitate. What would have served me in a better way would be to look at why it works, and how it applies to my personality, my environment, myself.
If 100 of the best architects were asked to build a bridge that spanned from England to France we would see 100 different bridges built. 100 different answers to the same question.
Same in communication (that’s the business we are in by the way!).
There is more than one right answer. Sound principles underpin the solution, human interaction, beliefs, and emotional intelligence are the pillars of every relationship.
Add yourself into the mix, do yourself a favour. 100% this is the right thing to do.
One caveat to this whole argument. You MUST accept yourself. Be okay with your approach.
We are not actors. This is real life. Why waste time being someone else.
And if you’re not getting the results you feel you should be, don’t get BITTER, get BETTER.
