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.
