Why does everybody need a coach?
Because the one thing nobody is good at on their own, is seeing themselves as other people see them.
Why does everybody need to see themselves as other people see them?
Because everybody needs that perspective in order to have positive relationships with themselves, others and the world around them.
Why does everybody need positive relationships?
Because relationships are for the mind and soul, like air is for the body. Positive relationships are like clean, fresh air… invigorating, uplifting, energising. Negative relationships are like dirty, polluted, smog… suffocating, draining, confusing.
Why does everybody need invigorating, uplifting, energising?
Because if they are not part of the solution, they are part of the problem. Life is hard and it’s getting harder. As individuals, we have never been more connected, nor more isolated. Our organisations have never been bigger, nor more dysfunctional. Society has never been more diverse, nor more conflicted. Our world has never been more globalised, nor more polarised. As human beings, we simply aren’t built to handle this much complexity. We need to help ourselves to help each other.
Why does everybody need to be part of the solution?
Because if not everybody, then who? Our leaders? Our politicians? Our corporate executives? Our parents? We no longer live in a top down world, where what is good for one is good for the next. We need to rehumanise peer-to-peer relationships at every level. From the inside, out. We all need to find Something Great in ourselves, by helping those around us find Something Great in them. Whether it be relationships with colleagues, friends, families or followers, the ripple effect of coaching is undeniable and the return on investment is exponential.
