Maximum Potential: Build Your Network!
There are lots of great coaches out there.
There some bad ones out there too.
I’d like to think the good outweighs the bad but it’s irrelevant for this post.
Do you think the good coaches are all happy and in jobs they love?
Are the bad coaches all unemployed and cannot get work?
You know the answer, of course not….
So being a great coach doesn’t mean you’ll get the job does it?
It’s something I see in aspiring coaches regularly, almost a denial that this is the case, a blindness and a fight against it.
This is the way it is, it won’t change.
Once we accept this then we can look to move beyond it….
If you’re a good coach make sure you are putting yourself out there, out your comfort zone. Go and meet people, relevant people.
Focus on being great at your job first and networking a close second.
Don’t moan about it, that this shouldn’t be the way it works, take that energy and use it for something productive.
Or be prepared to be moaning for years to come!
On Saturday I spent the day talking with Tommy Yule about Olympic Weightlifting along with 20 other coaches looking to learn and build their networks. Tommy is one of the best in the UK, I want to learn from him. It never stops. It makes sense.
Keep learning, keep pushing, keep building.
That’s all for today,
To your success,
PS Tommy Yule’s strength training workshop is coming up on the 20th April. If you want to learn and network with one of the best in the business get yourself along.
