The Coach Needs A Coach
I have had a few notes and reminders lately.
Thinking this through....along with many other things, I have realized that 'the coach needs a coach'.
Example: this week I had an idea - and not sure if that idea was simply a way to avoid doing something that I am completely uncomfortable with or really a good idea that sits better with my brand, I texted a very close and smart individual to talk through the basics and get their feedback.
As a coach, I spend a great deal of time in the businesses of others, recognizing that I need to take my time to work on my own as well - walking my talk is as important to me as it is to my clients. I am grateful that I have people that I can reach out to to get the coaching I need too.
So think of this - as a leader and a coach for your team - do you need a coach too? Where do you turn for accountability or brainstorming or seeking new perspectives without going to your middle ranks and blurring lines for them (and for you!)?
