Becoming a Coach Who Can Conquer Time Management – A Key to Productive Executive Coaching Careers
Most people complain that they don’t have enough time in their day, especially people in executive coaching careers. People who are looking into becoming a coach need time management skills for themselves, and for their clients. And although most people understand the basics of how to leverage their time, they can get so caught up in the rat race that it’s hard to implement. After becoming a coach who creates time leverage for yourself, it will be easy to implement it into your executive coaching careers. Offering an executive more time in his or her day and the ability to help others in their organization do the same, can make a huge difference to the bottom line of their business. Successful executive coaching careers are founded on this type of value.
Executive Coaching Career’s Ultimate Question: What’s the Price of Time?
Becoming a coach who can identify what motivates people to take action steps toward mastering time is simply understanding that people are motivated by pain and pleasure.
The first step whether you are doing this for yourself or for clients within the context of executive coaching careers, is to figure out your hourly rate. How many hours a week do you work? What is your average income per week? Divide the weekly figure by the number of hours you work per week. What is your time worth per second? (Divide the hourly figure by 60)
Only when you are clear about what your time is worth, can you spend it appropriately.
What does it cost you to file paper for an hour, when you can get someone else to do it for $15?
What does it cost to stand in line at Starbucks for that cup of coffee?
Becoming a coach That Delivers The ‘Bad News’ in Your Executive Coaching Careers
Becoming a coach means figuring out how much you leave on the table in terms of lost revenue, lost time you will never spend with people you love, time you will never recover that could have been spent on something you are most passionate about.
A lot of people are missing the boat in their own lives, and in their executive coaching careers. We can look at our lives and see that our needs are getting met by doing things the way we currently do them. Are you a ‘control freak’ that has to be certain that the filing will be done properly, or maybe you feel a sense of validation and importance because you can do it all? Maybe you even get attention from others because you are so tired and stressed out that they feel sorry for you. Running around like a chicken with its head cut off makes life seem more exciting.
Executive Coaching Careers for The Masters: Becoming a Coach That Masters Their Own Time
So what if we started becoming a coach who could get these same needs met at a higher level by outsourcing and leveraging our time? If we were to make even more money in less time, would that give us some financial certainty? Could we use some of that free time to do things we’ve always wanted to do, but never had time for? Go places we’ve always wanted to go? That would meet the need for variety at a higher level than just racing around town trying to get everything done. And could we even get our needs for love and connection met at a higher level because we now have time to invest in our relationships? What would this type of life look like for you? What would it look like in context of executive coaching careers? Becoming a coach who truly masters her own time will open doors others can’t even see.
