Why Use a Coach?
Coaching is an exploding profession. Daily, professionals
and individuals are experiencing the benefits from their work with a coach. Coaching
is still in its infancy in terms of reach and understanding, which is why I like
to take a moment to put it in perspective. Years ago life was not as complicated;
a business would have one person in charge. Today you need a CEO, COO, CMO, CTO
and a bunch of VP's or least a partner. Personally you might have had a doctor years
ago, but today you need at least 5 medical specialists, a financial adviser, insurance
broker, a lawyer and a host of other supporting entities depending on how complicated
your life is. So with all my clients I describe the benefits with an analogy that
is understandable: We are all familiar with the Time Share industry. Do you have
hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on a second home? Most people do not,
and even if you did, you probably don't have the time to use it to justify the cost.
So time-shares allow you to own a fraction of this very beneficial home with others.
So it becomes affordable and practical, while still giving you the full benefit
when you are there. Coaching works in exactly the same way. Do you have the need
or the budget to hire an expensive six-figure professional? Maybe not, so why not
hire a piece of him or her, and reap the full benefits while in use. Think about
it, even if you were to enroll in my most beneficial program, your annual outlay
would be less than a junior secretary's salary. There is really no down side to
working with a coach, and the upside can be remarkable. Below is my summary of 12
benefits you can receive by working with a coach. Just imagine personally benefiting
from just one of these improvements per month for the next twelve months

12 Reasons to Use a Coach
Jon Anthony Astore
You Deserve It
Who says you cannot have a personal coach? The most admired
professions for their achievements in our society have always had them; athletes,
professional sports players, actors, politicians, musicians and so on. Now coaching
is obtainable for the common man. It is without question one of the quickest ways
to empower your life to improve it and reach your goals. Life is short; your capabilities
maximize the experience of the journey with a coach.
Regardless of WHO or for WHAT
There really is no one who could not benefit greatly from
a coaching experience. Today all walks of life are experiencing true positive RESULTS
towards issues or life goals. From CEO's needing a confidential sounding board to
specialized professionals that need assistance in running portions of their business,
to start ups that need strategic planning, to individuals that are striving to accelerate
their personal development and growth coaching can benefit anyone. Anyone who does
not on a consistent basis feel on a 1-10 rating satisfied to at least an 8 in regards
to their personal health, family/social, career situation and life in general, should
explore all opportunities to get there.
A Safe Place
Do you have a place you can go to reflect, focus on yourself
and achieve clear vision? Do you have a sounding board to kick around the "What
ifs?" in your life. Do you have a place where only good possibilities can evolve,
a place where you can let your guard down to maximize your inner energy and creativity?
That is the place you will develop and journey to with your coach.
Truth without Consequences
Your coach will be completely committed to your success
with no other motives other than to help you improve, grow and be more satisfied
with life. Think about the relationship you have with your family members, business
associates or friends. Even the most trusting relationships are tied with emotions.
Sometimes the people that care the most can stunt your growth or success path. A
completely confidential and trusting relationship with your coach allows you to
navigate effectively and precisely through major opportunities or challenges in
your professional or personal life.
Personal Evaluation and Growth
It is hard to evaluate one's self and be honest. Your coach
will help you analyze your current assets, issues, roadblocks, lifestyle and liabilities.
Your coach will help you focus on and build your strengths to maximize the benefits
to you. Then together you will prioritize growth areas to focus on. Let's face --it
we all want more of everything life has to offer-- that is what motivates us. Find
out how to grow professionally, personally, intellectually and financially in a
shorter amount of time with less energy and a less stressful journey.
We all have had an experience with a person(s) that touched
our lives so deeply; it had a profound and long lasting effect on who we are today.
It might have been a teacher a parent, a mentor or someone that did not even know
you that you were inspired or motivated by. Think about how beneficial these experiences
have been in your life. Now think about your life if you had these types of transformational
experiences on a regular basis. Not to say that it happens all the time, but this
is the ultimate goal between coach and client
and it does happen A LOT!
Major Transitions and Shifts
Life is a journey without a roadmap. Many times in life
you will be faced with life altering transitions. Transitions occur concerning professional
growth, reengineering a new career or on the personal side; individual growth, separation,
conflict or health issues. It's going to happen, you can count on it. To have a
personal coach who is unconditionally on your side without the emotional equation
of loved ones can help you visualize "outside the box." How many times
have you said in your life, "I would have done it differently knowing what
I know now." Your coach can help you see and navigate beyond today's events
for a better and smoother transition towards tomorrow.
There are few things these days that have not been done
or experienced. Coaches in general have significant business and life experiences
and are a wealth of resources. Why recreate the wheel? How much is it worth to save
3 months of trial and error? Discuss your personal plan with someone that might
have been there or have experience and contacts with those who have.
The only aspect that remains the same in our world is the
fact that no matter how life accomplishments and complexities grow, you still have
only 24 hours in a day to get them done. Now look at what you have to deal with
compared to your parent's generation. It is a very challenging balancing act to
accomplish and manage success in business, family and personal well-being. This
is a constant struggle and complaint of most people these days. Your coach can help
you identify priorities, create time saving techniques and deliver recommendations
to ultimately get you more of what you want out of your 24 hour day.
Master Plan Your Future
We all are not as fortunate as Michael Jackson who knew
he wanted to be a rock n roll star at age 5. Many individuals never really find
their destiny or ultimate peace in life. You plan for your business, right? Why
not plan your personal life? Your coach will dig deep to find those inner life ambitions,
help you stretch your vision to create a plan, work with you to set a course and
measure progress so that you know what you are working for and when you plan to
Qualities of a Coach
There are many types of coaches out there with different
specialties or focused areas of practice. What is consistent and common between
them can be summarized using two major observations: One, coaches have extensive
business, life, resources and situational experiences. Second, they have a passion
for helping others. You have heard the expression, "You are who you hang around
with." How many coaches would you like to hang around with?
Significant Return on Investment (ROI)
Everything in life sooner or later has to be at least partially
evaluated on the cost vs. benefits formula. Coaching should be no exception to investment
evaluation. We all know how many self-help gurus and products there are out there.
That's just the point, "self help." A coaching relationship is the only
true one-on-one self-improvement program out there that does all the work with you.
Industry wide studies have shown a return on investment to be 5-25 times your cost
in beneficial value to you. Obviously each situation produces different degrees
of success, but one can potentially see benefit within the first 30-minute session.
