HOW TO BRING IN A VIRTUAL COACH

USE A VIRTUAL COACH

Do You Have a Virtual Coach?

What makes a great coach?  Everyone needs a coach.  Even the best players in sports use coaches. Coaches may not be physically better than the recipient of the coaching but they are observant and great at asking questions that make the recipient more aware.  They help the recipient learn and improve.

We may need someone to remind, to listen, to be a better alter ego, to catch us when we fall, to pick us back up and encourage.

We can’t always see our own faults.  Sometimes we need the coach to be a magnifying mirror.

Think about how you learned to ride a bike. Your coach, probably your Mom or Dad or a neighbor, held the back of the seat to steady the bike as you got a feel for balancing. They ran along, picked you and the bike up if you fell, maybe disinfected and bandaged the scrapes, and let go at the appropriate time.

During this difficult time I do all my coaching virtually, but I forecast that virtual will continue even when we can get back together so that distance doesn’t become a problem.  You will be able to choose a coach from anywhere in the world, you may even decide to choose me.

Emotional Intelligence

At one time it was thought your IQ was innate.

Do you remember taking an IQ test in school?  The results were shared with your parents but not you.  Having a high IQ apparently didn’t mean you were smart enough to handle the information. Some schools even divided students into the smart classes and the not smart classes.

Understanding Emotional Intelligence

The Faces of Emotional Intelligence
Research proved that what teachers were told about how smart (high IQ) a student was impacted how well that student did in class.  It affected the teacher’s expectations which then affected what they did and said to the student. In the end it affected how well that student did in school.

Now we understand that IQ is not completely fixed. We can grow in the areas tested as IQ.

And now we also understand that success in life is even more affected by your EQ, emotional intelligence.  How you understand and handle yourself, your own emotions.  And how you understand and interact with other personalities. This, too, is something you can learn and improve.

Let me know if you would like to know more about this subject.

Praise for Business, Brains & B.S.

A superb book! Dr. Wagner provides a wonderful cross between reading a Tom Clancy novel and a Jack Canfield success guide!!! She challenges the conventional wisdom of how we think, both individually and as a group, and how we communicate and handle a crisis. She provides solid hands on techniques to create a more creative thought process while demonstrating concepts of communicating to a variety of audiences. The key with this book is the unique approach she takes in presenting a fictitious case study in a fast-paced mystery and suspense format that makes for an easy, entertaining and engaging read. It does this while providing valuable insights and lessons to learn. No business leader should be without a copy of this book in their library.” - Salvatore M. Capizzi, Executive Vice President, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Dunham & Associates Investment Counsel, Inc. San Diego, CA

"Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom. This book makes that distinction and shows how to extract everyday wisdom from your experiences. Read it and reap." - Sam Horn, author of POP! and Tongue Fu!

“This book will help you become a better manager. Period! But there's something more. "Business, Brains, and BS" is one hell of a good book! Ms. Wagner is every bit as good an author as she is a consultant, and this book is as good as most any "whodunit" you might choose to read this summer. Beach reading totally at home in the boardroom.” - William Matthies, Author, "The 7 Keys to Change"

“As anyone who has met me knows, I remind people to be outrageous, and that is how I would describe the title and style of Hazel Wagner’s new book, Business, Brains and BS. She knows how to grab and keep your attention so that you emerge wiser. - Mikki Williams, CSP, CPAE, professional speaker/executive coach and producer of Speaker Schools

“For me it made reading a business book fun, I accidentally read the business book, while I was turning pages in the mystery. It read fast and the information stuck to my brain better when I forgot that I was learning something.” – Keith C.P. Wagner, President, Fabrik Industries, Inc.
