When a new set of eyes can help your perspective…

Ricki talks about the value of a coach, part 1

Sometimes, a different set of eyes can make all the difference.

Have you ever had this experience? Think about the last report you wrote, or even the last essay in college.

You’ve checked and re-checked the text, ensuring that everything is perfect. Yet, when your colleague or friend reads over the contents, they easily point out one (or more!) typos that you didn’t notice.

Why? Because when you’re so immersed in something and have seen it dozens–if not hundreds–of times, your brain begins to assume that everything is a certain way.

In the case of your writing, your brain skips over the typos because it knows what you intended to write, and that’s what it expects.

But in other situations, your brain may assume that things are established a certain way even when they need not be.

Have you ever thought, “this will never change? It’s just the way I am. . .”?

If so, then you might want to learn a bit more about the role and value of a coach in your life.

Just like a sports coach, health coaches and life coaches work to help you reach your full potential, providing support and accountability.

But in my experience, coaches provide much more than that.

Today’s video is the first part in my series about how a coach can help–The Value of a Coach. In the series, I’ll be including those benefits that you might not know about or recognize immediately unless you’ve also worked with a coach.

There are myriad benefits to coaching, which is why I think that, in 2020 (especially in our current environment!), everyone could benefit by working with a coach.

I’ve worked with coaches in both a one-on-one as well as a group setting for almost 10 years now, and I know that my life would be much less productive, less focused and less fulfilling without them.

Listen in, and let me know what you think!
