First you have to choose a coach to work with, without really knowing him or her all that well.
Then you have to pay them money.
And all this without really knowing in advance whether the coaching process will work for you.
It’s a leap of faith.
I have made that leap myself, when I worked with a coach about 6 years ago. Like anyone else, I didn’t really know what to expect.
I don’t much like putting myself in someone else’s hands. And I’m not someone who is quick to trust someone I don’t know very well. But to give that coaching engagement a fair shot, I had to let go of my usual constraints and allow him to do his work.
As it turned out, that experience was transformational for me, and I’ll always be grateful. (Thank you Alan Allard!)
It’s the same when freelancers think about working with me as their coach. It’s not an easy decision. I get that.
In an attempt to take some of the unknowns out of the equation, I have put together this short video to address some of the questions I am most commonly asked.
