Do you have a coach? If not, you could be limiting your success as an athlete. That’s because coaches help you identify and focus on what’s important, which accelerates your success. A good coach could be said to:
Create a safe environment in which people see themselves more clearly;Identify gaps between where the client is and where the client needs or wants to beAsk for more intentional thought, action and behavior changes than the client would have asked of him or herselfGuide the building of the structure, accountability, and support necessary to ensure sustained commitment
Successful athletes obviously understand the power of coaching. The United Kingdom Coaching Strategy describes the role of the sports coach as one that:
"enables the athlete to achieve levels of performance to a degree that may not have been possible if left to his/her own endeavours."
When it comes to improving your physical and mental performances, a coach can be a powerful resource who can help you get out of your own way, stand out, and take action to achieve the things that are truly important to you. Your coach can help you:
Get clear about your goals. Your coach will help you determine what’s really important to you and help you stay focused on that.
Identify blind spots. We can help you figure out what you don’t know, and clue you in to things you may not be able to see. We will be honest with you because we are not vested in any specific outcome other than making you a better athlete.
Be accountable. We aim to keep you on track and moving forward toward new levels of achievement. For many of us, having someone we answer to motivates us to act.
Focus your development efforts. We can help you know the difference between weaknesses you need to fix and those that are best left as they are. This can help you invest time and energy only in the most fruitful opportunities.
Gain a competitive advantage. ENTIRE can help you get from point a to b faster than you could on your own, helping you differentiate yourself from the pack and advance your performance far quicker...
Feel happier. Because we help you identify and align your values, create a focus, cut through clutter, and clear tolerations, we can help you increase your athletic fulfillment.
Simply put, a coach will help you stoke your success. How much is that worth to you?
Having a coach will pay off in clarity, happiness and increased success. Think of coaching as an investment, not an expense.
