You would be surprised at how many times you or many others like you, have hired and fully paid for a handbook copy you have loved but never used.
Well, many reasons, but in majority cases it has to do with some sort of block.
That’s why I’m a big believer in every entrepreneur knowing a few coaching skills.
As an entrepreneur who loves a done-for-you (exclusive) service you would think I would be the last person who would need to coach someone around mindset shifts through their blocks. It doesn’t get any more done-for-you then handing them (your senior team) a piece of handbook/manual copy plus the strategy for how to use it to get the best outcomes in business.
How many books/handbooks you have in your library bookcase in your chamber!
However, that does not help in most cases.
So how do I as a coach respond?
As much as I can, I try and step in and work them (your senior team) through whatever has got them stuck – a mental block or default mindset in my coaching terminology.
Sometimes, I call it a success trap – I succeeded doing it in past – this is my way of solving it, and that’s the right way! I do come across many arguments – we’re different, we have tried it before, etc., etc…
