A strong and clear vision is the cornerstone of coaching success, both for coaches and their clients. A great coach doesn’t just have to have a strong vision; They also need to be able to help their client or “PBC” (Person Being Coaching) develop theirs.
The best insights are clear, useful, attainable, and intrinsic to who and what you (or your customers) are. As a coach, when you master the ability to create clear and authentic insights into yourself and others, you will be light years ahead of the competition. . Help you and your clients with the foundation on which to build a successful and fulfilling life, both personally and professionally.
WORK ON YOUR VISION FIRST
Without a clear idea of what you are doing and where you want if you want or what you want, success will be much more difficult, even impossible, to achieve. How do you know what to do, what action to take if you don’t know where you are going?
Not having a vision is like sailing without a goal. They end up without a harbor in the Sea of Destiny, wandering aimlessly across the ocean and being blown in every direction by the wind. When a challenging storm strikes, gale force winds are likely to destroy your top floors in an instant. Eventually you will feel like you are aboard the ship of fools.
Having a clear vision and mission gives you that destiny. While the challenges of hurricanes may temporarily alter your progress, they will make it easier for you to get back on track and achieve your goals.
Contrary to what many people think, visions do not usually appear through magic. They can take time, which requires introspection, self-analysis, and journaling. It also helps to review your past successes and, just as importantly, your past disappointments and failures. Draw your dreams, talents and desires. Look at your calling as a manager.
The first place to look when developing your vision is within, that deeper inner self. You can use your talent, your dreams and desires, or any other avenue that will help you discover those nuggets that will become your navigational beacons in life.
Unfortunately, there are usually no shortcuts to creating your vision. You can’t just “make it up”; WORK is required. But the rewards for that job can save you years, if not a life of frustration, allowing you and your clients to live the life you should be living.
