Although many people think of learning a new task as a list with “how-to” items, it is just as important to learn what to avoid. You can learn from the mistakes of others and make your own decisions to avoid them. This will help you get to your goals faster. Focusing on the negative can lead you to the most rewarding and effective path.
It is easy to think that transformational coaching should be treated the same way as other jobs when you start a career. This is not true. Because it doesn’t rely on sales tactics, transformational coaching is different. Although securing clients is crucial to success, there is no pressure to win, no push to close deals or manipulations. The beauty of this system lies in the simple connections you make with people who are looking for your services. It would be an offense to the entire concept if you did it in another way.
What should you avoid? These are the top three things to avoid when you become a transformational coach.
1. Do not launch a complete presentation of your services until you have a feeling for whether there is a vibrational match.
This is an important point for coaches who are just starting out. People will often ask how they would like to work with you as a coach. Although almost everyone should be considered a potential client when you meet them, it is important to start by talking with them about their current challenges. You will be able to assess if you can help them become a transformational coach. You and your client may be mismatched if you rush to learn your skills.
2. If the person isn’t the right fit, stop exploring.
A transformational coach can have the greatest advantage of all: confidence in their clients and their coaching system. To maintain your confidence as a transformational coach, you must only accept clients who are vibrationally matched. You could end up failing if you continue to pursue a coach/client relationship that isn’t ideal. You will also be a disservice to your client.
3. Do not try to force anyone to use your services.
Talking about transformational coaching with potential clients is a great way to have a low-key conversation. Never approach a client from a selfish perspective or treat them as if they were a sale. Amazing things will happen if you approach people from a place of service and compassion. You will find clarity in any situation by focusing on the connection with others from a place where they are serving.
