Coaching as Serving
The past few weeks have been among the most emotionally disorienting in my entire life.
I think many of us here in the U.S. are feeling this way.
For those of you in other countries, please bear with me for a moment…
Coaches’ Coach is a global network of 1000s of exceptionally talented business coaches. But I think that we’ve become more than just a network. Recently, one of our U.K. business coaches described us as a “family.” Wow! What an honor that you would think of us that way.
That’s why I want you to know how to support those of us in the U.S. — and even pray for us if that’s your jam.
I say “disorienting” because on one hand we were stunned by the gruesome display of brokenness we face here in the U.S. with the murder of George Floyd and the eruption of rioting in 350 of our cities.
In my entire life, I’ve never felt so powerless to do anything meaningful and helpful. I don’t know what to do other than to just love and serve people.
The whole thing makes me weep and pray.
On the other hand, we’ve seen a stunning amount of really good economic news here in the U.S. as we look at what happened in May:
- Businesses, both large and small, added a total of 3.8 million jobs.
- Unemployment dropped from 14.7% to 13.3%.
- Labor force increased in size to 1.7 million.
Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist of First Trust summarized it this way: “The US economy is healing much faster than anyone expected, justifying recent optimism in the stock market and showing the benefits of easing lockdowns around the country.”
Obviously, we have a long way to go, but the turnaround is happening much faster than many economists predicted!
So that’s why it’s been a disorienting few weeks for me! So much bad news and good news all in rapid succession.

This recession is creating a once-in-a-decade opportunity for us as business coaches because business owners are reaching out for help with an eagerness we haven’t seen since the great recession of 2008-2010.
