Coaching with accountability and finding honorable coaches is S7.E8.#121. of the brand messaging podcast; Wait What Really OK.
All too often, an excited individual might be attracted to the hype, the promises and the flash that is presented in the promotion of a certain coach, but then find out all too late that the substance, the accountability and the experience is missing.
Consider taking the time to vet, double check and practice the due diligence before taking that step to pay someone that is not authority and does not have the ability to help you, your business or your vision.
Discussed here are some of the elements to look for as well as what to look out and avoid.
To the legitimate and honorable coaches, keep in mind that many out there have had the bad experiences with coaches that were less than experienced. Showcase your authenticity, experience and authority in writing and in an agreement over just the marketing and hype that is used to sell. Share pieces online and off that highlight your knowledge over only marketing and promoting yourself.
When you take the time and put in the effort to vet and double check, while at the same time, showcase your detail and professionalism, you set a better standard and a better foundation to work from. While also attracting the right type of client to coach.
When everyone is on the same page, has a clear understanding of expectations and responsibilities, the best outcomes can occur. Consider stepping away from the big promises, guarantees and claims if they are not backed up on paper. Lastly, look past the hype and seek the substance before subscribing to a coach and their direction. This is some of the best protection for you, your business or venture.
