How to Become a Business Coach

Strength and Courage from the Coaches’ Coach

By on April 1, 2020

I wanted to share some thoughts from a fellow coach to strengthen and encourage you today…

As our children were growing up, my wife and I learned a valuable leadership lesson. 

The states where we lived are known for their ferocious thunderstorms every spring and summer. In the middle of the night, whenever these storms would wake up our children, their uncertainty and anxiety would drive them into our room. Inevitably, I would wake up in the morning with both my son and daughter between my wife and me. 

The leadership principle is this: when uncertainty and anxiety are present, people will run to a PERSON or to a PLACE where they feel safe. In some cases, as with our bedroom for our children, people are able to find BOTH.

In these uncertain times, the anxieties of people in our country and around the world are increasing with each passing day, it seems.

Your credibility, influence, and integrity as a leader make you a PERSON that others (your family, team, clients, and friends) will want to run to. They won’t be seeking answers, they will simply be looking for comfort.

In other cases, because you and your coaching practice are known for your ethos of service, excellence, and wisdom, people will come to you because they are looking for a PLACE where they can find safety, not just physical, but social and emotional as well.

The leadership principle is this: when uncertainty and anxiety are present, people will run to a PERSON or to a PLACE where they feel safe.

At Coaches’ Coach, we want you to know that we are here for you.

Each of our Certified Coaches’ Coaches wants to be the PERSON that you can call or reach out to when your anxieties and uncertainty increase and you need a listening ear. 

And we want Coaches’ Coach to be a PLACE where you can find strength and encouragement, not just in turbulent times, but always.
