The best coach in the NFL cannot win the Super Bowl without a team of players who follow the game plan, do their homework, and execute the play calls with excellence.
No executive coach, life coach, leadership coach or communication coach can bring you or your organization to a greater level of success all alone either.
Many of the better coaches and mentors I have worked with as peers or as mentors and coaches I have hired to improve me, now have “responsibility clauses” in their agreements. The purpose of the clause is to point out this simple fact, EVEN THE BEST IMPROVEMENT PLAN ONLY WORKS IF YOU DO!!
If you don’t have a coach, mentor or advisor in your life you might need to consider the investment. The value of a third party objective opinion is priceless.
To find someone who is committed to your growth and success, willing and qualified to invest in you, and able to draw the best out of you is a goal to be achieved.
You deserve to remove the blind spots, improve your relationship skills, develop your vision, understand your own deep seated beliefs and be free of the baggage other wounded people have left at your doorstep.
But even with the best coach, you will still have work to do. Develop a plan. Work the plan.
