When All Else Fails, Get a Coach

You’ve tried all the stuff below, yet for some reason one or two of the steps are either not working or are impossible for you to get around to doing, make you cringe in fear, don’t sit well, feels like begging, etc. Maybe you need to work around those blocks with someone who knows how to help.

I had the very distinct pleasure of taking part in one of Lisa Gates’ introductory telecoaching courses last week. I will admit openly to knowing exactly what I need to do in order to succeed, but at being lousy on the follow-through. Lisa’s coaching methods help, and yet they don’t. Let me explain – she knows exactly what she’s doing, and she can lead you to the right answers. She doesn’t tell you directly what to do, but rather asks you pertinent questions that turn on lightbulbs inside your brain, and then she applies “homework” that gets you moving in the right direction.

At the very least, Lisa’s courses are inspiration to get off your duff. Yet you will come away with much more from it than just inspiration – you’ll come away feeling like you can finally get over that speed bump that’s been slowing you down.

Lucky for you Lisa is holding more free introductory telecoaching courses this month. Check out her website for more info.

    Hey Lori, I got my homework done and turned in on time. Now I am very excited and pumped up.
    Also, an invite, I’d love to have you do a guest post at Productivity in Context – whenever you have a minute.

    Great hearing from you, Stephen! Folks, Stephen was my coach-mate during Lisa’s telecoaching session on Friday.

    I’d be thrilled to guest post!
