Ditch the Guesswork – A Coach is Your Shortcut from Maybe to Money-Making Mastery

14th November 2023 | By Parker Pursell

Have you ever considered you might be your own worst enemy?

Think of all the times you got in the way of getting to where you wanted. Typically, the standstill happens in between your ears.

When competent, competitive people get stuck, they turn to a professional.

Namely a coach.

Consider the stark difference a coach can make. Coaching isn’t about telling someone what to do, it’s about empowering.

A coach shifts the focus from mere instruction to inspiring self-discovery. This approach leads to remarkable outcomes.

Statistics from McKinsey highlight that employees under coaching exhibit a 32% higher commitment and a 46% greater job satisfaction. This boost isn’t just about better work performance; it’s about cultivating a fulfilling career and life.

Traditional management often traps employees in a cycle of dependency, constantly seeking approval for each decision. Coaching, on the other hand, encourages autonomy and self-reliance.

This empowerment leads to innovative thinking and problem-solving, essential skills for anyone managing their career and finances.

When it comes to your finances, the value of a coach becomes even more evident. Unlike handing over control to someone else, being coached in financial matters empowers you with knowledge and skills. You learn to make informed decisions, understand market trends, and develop strategies tailored to your goals. This hands-on approach not only enhances your financial acumen but also instills a sense of confidence and independence.

A fascinating stat comes from the art of listening.

A Salesforce survey featured in Forbes reveals that people who feel heard are 4.6 times more likely to perform their best. Challenge existing beliefs and encourage a shift in perspective. This approach fosters an environment where new ideas flourish. Safety and trust are the cornerstones of effective coaching. When you feel safe to express and explore, you unlock your true potential.

So if you feel stuck, whether it be with your financial or life goals (they are totally connected), go find a coach.

Find someone who is where you want to be and set weekly cadences to ask questions.

And if you are where people want to be, open yourself to someone in your sphere of influence, grab a cup of coffee, and listen.
