1) Believe in people.
With all your heart. See them better than they see themselves.
2) You are no better than the people you coach.
Be their equal, not their boss. Walk with them shoulder by shoulder. You’re both on the same path.
3) Skill doesn’t change people. Love changes people.
All the skills in the world aren’t worth a dime if you don’t have good intent. Your clients can sense it a mile away.
4) You still need skill.
Good life coaching is not an accident.
5) You still don’t change people. People change themselves.
You don’t have a magical wand that makes people do what you want them to do. When you take credit for someone’s change, you rob them of their personal power. You only show them the door, they’re the ones that walk through it.
6) The most important person you coach is you.
You can’t teach what you don’t know, you can’t lead where you don’t go. Be the best person you can be. Do your best to walk the talk and lead the way. ‘Nuff said.
