21 Feb You’re the One Who Follows Through
As an Executive Coach, I will consistently have clients thank me for an idea or skill I gave them to consider. I appreciate the “thanks”, but I always tell them that they are the ones who follow through and make great things happen.
I enjoy researching the latest techniques that help people achieve successful outcomes and sharing this information with my clients. But it’s the client who then decides how to apply it, when to do it and then completes the follow-through of the skill.
In fact, there are occasionally times when (after explaining the steps of a particular skill) a client thinks of their own unique twist to the skill. In those cases, I become the student. I am thrilled when they teach me.
My point is that whether you have an Executive Coach (like me) or a leader who understands coaching well, you can’t go wrong in frequently learning new ways to deal with the latest challenges you face in whatever field you are in.
QUESTIONS TO ASK THIS WEEK
