If you’re thinking of hiring a coach, but don’t have a clear idea of what you want, do you still hire one?
I have consultations with prospects every week. They come to the call to discuss their End Game. Intentional plug. 😉
In almost 10 years in the coaching profession, entrepreneurs, professionals, CEO’s, high potentials, sales, and those lost in a dead end career have told me their endgame.
Here are a few examples of an endgame:
- My business is at a plateau. I want to take it to another level.
- I want to be a better leader.
- My team has no energy. I want to get their juices flowing again!
- I want to hire, retain, and develop the right employees.
- The business is unprofitable. I need to generate good profitable business.
- Our salespeople need help in closing.
- I want a career that pays the light bill and lights me up.
What if you’re not sure of the End Game?
Is this you?:
- You’re stuck in the weeds.
- All roads lead to nowhere.
- You’re stressing out.
- The future is cloudy.
- You’re full of unanswerable questions.
- Confusion has set in.
- You’re not sure of direction.
- Should I go left? Right? Turnaround?
These are all great reasons to hire a coach.
A well trained ICF certified coach will help you create a high definition picture.
Every time you have a coaching conversation, instead of spinning your wheels, you’ll have traction.
Coaching conversations are not always easy. In fact, sometimes, they can be hard. I strive to make them fun. In fact, if you ask any of my clients, they’ll say we laugh on every call.
“You ask me questions about my business, nobody else asks me” said one client.
A good coach asks powerful questions, listens to what you say and don’t say, on occasion kicks your ass, and brings your brilliance to the surface.
You might be saying, “Brilliance? Me?” Yes you. Everyone has an “A” game. It’s what I call dormant potential. A good coach will easily uncover what drives your who.
A coach will get you to where you want to go, quicker.

I used a coach when I first transitioned to a Director role. It was very helpful and we have become lifelong friends. I’ve seen countless transormations in leaders using coaches. It’s so helpful to have an unbiased perspective.
That’s great to hear Karin.
I’ve seen peoples lives changed from having a coach. Me included.
Though, some see coaching as remedial. Looking to fix someone. I rarely have these cases.
The majority of clients simply want to play in a bigger game, on a bigger stage.
I hired a life coach a few years after I came online and it’s the best decision I ever made. As you said, they ask you questions most other people don’t and they help you see things that you never thought of.
I was never sure about them in the past but after that experience I say they’re just necessary especially if they are in any of the situations you just mentioned above.
As they always say, if you keep doing what you’re currently doing you’ll get nowhere. So hire someone to help you move past that place so you can strive for better things.
Until you’ve experience “true” coaching, you don’t know what you’re missing.
I usually work with people that are smart and want to get better. People like you.
