“I had some significant ‘ah ha’ moments in our meeting.” Those were Scott’s words to me yesterday. He’s a leader of an organization I respect. I had just asked him how he thought the meeting I’d just facilitated went. The affirmation was very encouraging.
The meeting had people from California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Texas in it. There were men and women. Married and single. All but one was Caucasian. Scott said, “It probably felt a little like you were herding cats, but it is what it is. I think we made good progress.”
I thought we made good progress too. I was coaching the group through the words they want to use to convey their message. This is extremely important work, because if you don’t get people to listen to what you’re saying, they will never partner with you. And this group has a vision of partnering with thousands of people in the next decade. My coaching goal is to empower them toward seeing that vision become reality. And we had taken some big steps in the right direction.
I’m A Coach
Growing a business is hard. Incorporating your faith within your work is even harder. But as a former pastor of 25 years, I know it’s extremely important to you. If you’re an ambitious faith-based leader I’ll coach you to grow your business and thoughtfully integrate your faith so when your head hits the pillow at night you know you’re making our world a better place to live, work, and worship for your family, your employees, your customers, and your faith community.
In my Hero On A Mission (HOAM) Life Plan and Daily Planner, my coaching business comes up all the time. It’s part of the aspirational thoughts I put into my imaginary obituary and vision statements. I’ve got ideas about it in my goals. And yesterday, it was what I needed to do to help a group of national leaders move forward toward living out their mission and accomplishing their goals.
The Satisfaction of a Hard Day’s Work
Having all of this in writing helps me after a busy day like yesterday. I worked hard. I gave my very best effort. I expended a lot of emotional and mental energy. So, I was tired at the end of the day. But it was a good tired. Why? Because I knew that what was making me tired were the kinds of things I want to do with my life to help others succeed.
