Your Million Dollar Year Day 37 Coaches good and bad. We all know how easy it is to see what other people are doing wrong, it is so hard to turn that eye on yourself with any clarity. A good coach has a system they follow that they have taken many a professional through with some degree of success. A great coach understands how that system fits for the person they are coaching and adjust the system to the person. Personally I have had many and a varied quality of coaches through my life. As a Division 1 scholarship (swimming) athlete I had perhaps 2o plus coaches to get to my final races. Some were good, some weren’t and a couple of them truly motivated and inspired me.
In real estate I have had several franchises unleash their coaching systems on me. Most of these franchise produced systems when studied by you on your own are marginally useful. Without direct feedback on how you are understanding, how you are applying their system you are left to interpret the nuances. This is why coaches are important.
Hiring an internal coach, like a productivity coach that some franchises have is ok. They are usually successful in their own right, successful within their franchises and enthusiastic to bring you along. That does not make them great coaches. A great coach can step out of their own body and mind and put themselves inside your mind to better direct you towards your own goals. Outside paid coaches are usually of the slash and burn, go get ’em, always be closing types and they will bludgeon you with their demands and requirement. They want your success following their letters of their laws so they can get other clients to coach. Find someone who gets you, who understands and is focused on you. Pay attention to your own motivations and progress. Don’t settle for less, don’t accept internal coaching because it is without cost. The hidden cost is your own slow progress. Lean in, make your mark, get some help and keep moving. Your Million Dollar Year Day 37 Coaches good and bad
