Are you coaching to be liked? Or to make a difference?
As coaches, especially with the gift of empathy and seeing someone’s potential, it can be easy to get into the mode of nicey-nice coaching.
As a coach, sometimes our job is to tell people what they don’t want to hear. It’s not our job to determine how our client feels, that’ is their choice. It’s not about delivering truth bombs just because we can, it’s about holding up a mirror for the client to see their own patterns so they can create more possibilities rather than limiting their potential with the pattern they are engaging in.
What do you do when you have a big decision to make in your business? When it’s a decision that could create big opportunities, or it could create the opposite. How do you choose?
A fabulous way that Soulpreneurs avoid the decision completely or give their power away in making decisions is by asking, “What is in my best and highest good?”
This is something I used to do all of the time. I would have a decision to make and I wouldn’t be sure what to choose. It was usually around something that was scary and also involved money like investing in a coach or signing a contract for one of my events.
Charge what you’re worth. You’ve probably been told that this one way to raise your prices.
I used to subscribe to this motto also; I used to teach it. But think about it for a second: how can you possibly charge what you’re worth? Your value is infinite. You are priceless.
How can you put a price tag on what you are worth?
The other thing I heard was “Charge what your client is worth,” because their worth is so great.
But we can use the same argument with your client – they are priceless.
