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.
