Tips on What to Look For in a Good Coach

Good coaches are not hard to come by if you know what to look for. There are coaches that are money hungry with no experience, while there are others that actually really want to help you achieve success. But whoever you hire, make sure that they have actually walked the walk. Only hire a coach who has achieved the success you want and not one that’s only read about it. The only person that can really help you and mentor you is one with real world knowledge.

The other thing you want to think about with a coach from that perspective, is to realize that there are two kinds of coaches out there. Let’s look at the sport of basketball as an example. There are some coaches that are coaching basketball teams that never played the game and then there are other coaches that played the game. Do you see where I’m coming from? There are coaches that have done the business and succeeded in it and that’s why they are teaching it, while there are also others who have never had a successful business but are coaching based upon textbook knowledge. You need a coach who’s been there and done that. Don’t short change yourself by investing in the coaching of someone who lacks real-world knowledge.

Don’t look for a coach specifically for information. I highly recommend that you look for a coach specifically to keep yourself on track and to hold yourself accountable as well as one that provides good information. This is what I did and continue to do, as it helps you to take action. Actually, if you can get into a mastermind group, that’s even better. But best of all, you learn about what others are doing and their successes help push you to not give up and to keep going. I highly recommend a mastermind group because they help you remain accountable.

As you look for your coach or mastermind group, look at their track record. How many success stories have they produced not only for themselves but others? Follow these tips and there should be no reason why you can’t find a good coach or group that will help you get to the next level of success.
