4 Successful Secrets to Success Coaching
There are a few inside secrets to success coaching that may give you a competitive advantage when vying for clients. These secrets work for both business and personal clients, and give you a way to differentiate yourself from coaches who aren’t claiming to be success coaches. Keep these secrets in mind and you’ll be on your way to successful coaching and a very long career in the industry.
- Success coaching is educational and involves the gathering of knowledge. If you are going to be a success coach, you better be armed with skills, knowledge, and information on what it means to be successful and how best to achieve success.
- One of the secrets to success coaching that really isn’t much of a secret is that it is a process. All coaching is a process and coaching for success is no different. During the process, the client, with help from the coach, defines goals, and then works toward the realization of those goals. For success coaching, the process is entirely focused on success for each step along the way.
- Success is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Some people think of this as luck or serendipity, but it is the foundation of success. Your success coaching practice should focus on these two related concepts – identify opportunities (these could be goals), and then create an action plan that prepares the client to meet the opportunity.
- Coach optimism. Yes, the real world can sometimes be brutal. Yes, everyone fails. Yes, it sometimes sucks to be you…or them. But, optimism breeds success. Clients will probably miss their opportunities and fail to properly prepare if they are moping around all day saying, “woe is me.” Coaching optimism is a critical part of coaching clients to be successful.
