Your Secret Weapon.

by Michael Barrovecchio

You are Brilliant! 

You have big dreams, you set the bar high, and you know in your heart that you were born to impact the world with your life and leadership. You are successfully building a life and a business that you love.   

But there is a problem. 

You are stuck. 

Maybe you desire to grow your business, but you have not been able to break through to reach the aggressive sales target that you have set. And you are frustrated that you have not been able to achieve this goal.  

Maybe you wish to be a stronger leader at home, but your intense focus on work makes that difficult. And you feel like you are letting your family down because they are paying a dear price.  

Maybe you volunteer for many wonderful causes with a desire to positively influence your community. Still, you are not seeing the positive results that you had envisioned. And you are unfulfilled and confused about what your next step should be.  

I know how you feel. I have been there, and I know that there is a better way.  

Your Coach is Your Secret Weapon. 

Think of a top performer in any field, and you will most likely find that they have engaged one or more coaches during their career. Business leaders hire coaches. Professional athletes hire coaches. Musicians and entertainers hire coaches.  

What is Coaching? 

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) says, “Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”  

Powerful Coaches are your partners: They are in your corner, and they listen intently to you. Their only agenda is to help you maximize your personal and professional potential.   

Powerful Coaches engage you in a well-tested and repeatable process:  They are not your cheerleaders. They bring you through a process that creates positive outcomes. 

Powerful Coaches provoke you to think creatively:  They help you to think about possibilities and to generate creative ideas to identify what you desire, chart your course, set goals, take action, navigate obstacles, and achieve those goals.  

Powerful Coaches inspire you:  They believe in you and help you to see what is possible for you as you journey towards your maximum potential. They help you to create and step into the life that you love!  

Powerful Coaches engage the whole You: You cannot separate your professional life and your personal life. You have one life.  

Misconceptions About Coaching.

Here are some common misconceptions about Coaching. 

Coaches tell you what to do: Powerful Coaches do not tell you what to do but instead use thought-provoking questions to empower you to explore your situation and discover your own path forward that is authentic to you. You own your answers because you created them. 

Coaches must know your industry to be effective: Powerful Coaches do not need to be well-versed in any industry or discipline other than the coaching process, which inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential and become the best version of yourself.  

Coaching is like counseling: Counseling deals with a trauma wound from the past that is not yet healed. If touching the wound still causes great pain, you should seek a licensed Counselor. Once that wound is healed, you will still see the scar, but if it doesn’t cause you great pain when you touch it, you are ready for Coaching.
