What is the Coach's Challenge?!
A question from a Financial Professional:
I'm a little confused about all this, but I'm very interested in having a coaching relationship as part of my plan for the upcoming year. Is this Coach's Challenge initiated by my questions or responses from your questions?
A response from the Coach:
Thanks for submitting both the request for the Coach's Challenge and the "winner's assessment lock code." I hope that you found the auto-response to both to your satisfaction.
In regards to your question above, the Coach's Challenge is initiated automatically by your e-mail request. Once you send an e-mail request to the Coach's Challenge auto-responder, you will receive the Coach's Challenge questions. In addition to this, you also have an opportunity presented to receive complimentary coaching time for yourself should you send back to me (via e-mail) your responses to the questions.
The Coach's Challenge is not just one challenge though. You might say that there are truly 19 challenges presented to you by it. Here they are for your consideration:
- Recognize you want to start toward that next level of success.
- Conclude that you want to explore what that next level might look like.
- Make an investment decision toward sending the Coach's Challenge e-mail request.
- Initiate the request for the Coach's Challenge questions by sending the e-mail request.
- Put time aside to explore and respond fully the Coach's Challenge questions.
- Respond to the Coach's Challenge questions.
- Share what you wrote with the coach via e-mail.
- Set up a coaching call with the coach to review the Coach's Challenge questions OR discuss a topic that has more interest to you.
- Choose to make the most of the call.
- Ask yourself what you REALLY want to get out of the call.
- Write your response down on paper.
- Ask yourself what this call should be worth to you in dollar terms if you were to get a valuable return on investment for your time and effort.
- Place that dollar figure down on the same paper along with anything else that you came up with of value and put the paper aside for future reference.
- Show up and do the actual coaching call as if you were an actual coaching client.
- Send a follow up "Post-Coaching-Call" executive summary describing what you got from the call and what you plan on committing to next, with time frames clearly spelled out.
- Make a decision whether to continue the process of reaching that next level or not.
- Put the commitment in writing.
- Follow through on that commitment
- Let the coach know your decision.
If you notice the trend in these challenges you will see that they are all clearly ACTION based. Should you choose this path, You will come to find that this is what coaching is all about and what you can expect from it - keeping YOU in clear action.
I hope all the challenges presented here are right for you. You've already accomplished the first four. Both you and I will know if you're wanting to meet the next ones by your next actions.
In the meantime, should you want to discuss what a coaching relationship might be like for you and how that might look in your next year's plans, here's an additional offer to you. Please let me extend to you an invitation for a 30 minute discussion on the topic. I do this as a courtesy to those seriously interested in next level activities and using coaching support to get there.
If this is acceptable to you, I ask that you send me 10 questions about coaching that if answered would give you all the information you need to make a better choice as to whether coaching would be right for you and your plans for next year.
Let me know if you're in the game on this or wanting to play a different game.
My best to you always and THANKS!
