Can you be a great coach tomorrow? (And the launch of something AWESOME)
That is the question for today?
Can you be great tomorrow?
To answer that question, let me ask you what you did yesterday to move towards great tomorrow.
What is great?
What does it mean to be great? What do you need to display?
Do you think that Michaelangelo’s art was great when he was at art school?
Was Bill Gates knocking out ‘great’ products when he was a teenager?
Highly unlikely, great art takes time to come, and coaching is art.
While I’m on the subject, you don’t have to be in art school to be ‘an artist’.
You don’t have to be working full time with performance athletes to be a great coach. You certainly do not need to have a Phd or a degree of any kind.
This thinking holds us back.
Coaching is not something that can be constrained to academics.
So how long does it take to be a great coach?
Take forward steps every day, learn from the best, surround yourself with excellence.
Enjoy the process of development.
This is the fast track approach.
