Coach Yourself to Success

“You to don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great” – Les Brown Everyone who ever succeeded, had to start somewhere. The first decision, the first action, the first step. With practice, those decisions become easier, the actions become bigger, and all those steps lead to massive results. How do we accelerate the above process? How can we achieve even greater success & happiness? How can we help others to be their best? The answer is…Coaching !! Most of us are probably aware of the benefits of Coaching other people. There are football coaches, golf coaches, performance coaches, business coaches, life coaches, and many many more. Did you know that it is also possible to Coach yourself, to accelerate your own results & success? Please see below, 3 easy steps to accelerate your OWN success; 1. Develop Your Curiosity – by opening your mind to new possibilities, and questioning our daily perceptions, we invite new thinking & new solutions to daily problems & challenges. If our thinking is too rigid or stiff, we will miss the opportunities that often lie directly in front of us 2. Ask Yourself Empowering Questions – One of the quickest ways to coach yourself, is by asking yourself empowering questions. Our brains are wired to find solutions, when we ask the right questions. We do need to be careful to ask the correct types of questions, as our questions are directed to our sub-conscious mind, which takes care of our Reticular Activated System (RAS for short), which works like a radar. Avoid dis-empowering questions such as: Why me?...

“When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to Contribute. ”  – Simon Sinek The best way to improve Employee Engagement is to have your teams emotionally invested in your business.

3 tips to Develop Leadership

“Being Positive in a Negative Situation isn’t being Naive. It’s Leadership” – Ralph Marston The Leaders of today realise that it’s their Emotional Intelligence (EQ) that makes the biggest difference when it comes to creating results, motivating staff and developing loyalty.
