This morning a friend sent me a text message saying she was in a café and could overhear a business coach chewing out a client. Wow - I was more than a little surprised!! I have never needed to add to a client's stress levels like that and I never will.
Yes, I do believe in tough love when appropriate. If you ask me to hold you accountable I will – very clearly - once we agree on the parameters. But I would never do it in a way that is unkind or disrespectful to you as a person. I care too much about my clients to behave like that, and I care too much about our planet to bring anger or frustration into my coaching. What if our earth is erupting because there is so much anger everywhere and she just can't contain it anymore? Do any of us who are aware and conscious truly need to add to that?
Caring takes a lot more courage than chewing someone out. What contribution can you be to our beautiful world today? Every energy we create has an impact far wider than just the person we are talking to. The frustrated energy that coach was splattering around that café was felt by many more people than just her unfortunate client.
I am more and more mindful of how far energy flows and what my total contribution is to the entire planet - in every interaction I have - with clients, friends, foes,and people I see in living everyday... So, here’s what you need to know if you choose to work with me:
- Because I care, I will tell you when I feel you need to look at other options.
- Because I care, I will find a way to show you when it’s time to step it up a bit and shine your light more brightly into the world.
- Because I care, I will tell you when I see greater possibilities for you than you can see right now.
- Because I care, I will be very clear about what it will take for you to have a successful business, even if you don’t want to hear it.
- Because I care, I will create the potential for you to discover the joy and bliss in your business, and sometimes, on the surface, that may not look like what you want it to!
Because I care, I will do this with humour, kindness and playfulness - not judgment, anger or frustration. I will do it with sensitivity to where you are right now. I will do it with awareness that you may not like me for a few moments because you weren’t expecting to hear what I have said (and I’ll never take offence, even if you do for a moment or so!!)
It’s this simple. You need to care more than I do about your business. If I found myself in a place where I had to chew you out over something, then I would be caring more for your business than you do. If I ever find myself caring more than you about your business, then you need a different business or a different business coach. (Of course, if you are one of those rare souls who love getting chewed out, it would be way easier for you to get a job and get paid for it, rather than paying a coach!)
Your business will thrive when you really really really desire thrival to show up. When you make the demand of YOU to do whatever it takes! I am here to mentor you, to contribute to you and to show you what is possible…what are you willing to receive? What are you willing to contribute... to you, to your business, to the planet?
Love Your Work!
