People are more than ever seeking the support of a trusted coach who understands their situation and can help them see opportunities and uncover their hidden talents. In today's fast-paced business world, leaders face the challenge of adapting quickly to change. A skilled coach will act as their thinking partner and help them break through barriers and identify new and exciting solutions.

If you're interested in working with a coach, it's essential to research and find a partner with experience in your focus area. The right coach will help uncover your inner gifts, strength, and talent. They will support you as you step out of your comfort zone and embrace your "Big Hairy Audacious Goals (BHAG)." Three myths about coaching prevent some from embarking on what could be a life-changing journey.

Myth 1: Coaching is for under-performers
The myth exists because some view coaching as a tool to help correct underperformance or to "fix" people. Coaching is indeed a resource that can help underperformers; however, coaching is more commonly used to enable high performers to reach their potential. Executives pay thousands of dollars for coaching to help them stay on top of their game. I have helped many high-performing clients get promoted and turn around an underperforming team.

Myth 2: Coaching is about giving advice and solving people's problems
I tell my potential customers how amazed they would be by their potential and how capable they are of creating their success. Coaching helps because a coach acts as a thinking partner who creates space for the client to open their mind to possibilities while the coach helps them navigate potential pitfalls and challenges they need to overcome.

Myth 3: You don't have time to work with a coach; you are too busy
This thought is a trap. If you are too busy for personal or professional growth, you will keep doing what you are doing and get the same results. If you want to create something new in your life, you must be intentional. Forty-five minutes a week with a coach will help you achieve your goals significantly faster than if you go it alone.
