Bob Nardelli, former CEO of Home Depot and Chrysler, goes as far as to say “I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities”.
Want to get to where you’re going faster? “Hire a personal coach” says Jack Canfield in Principle #45.
I agree. I believe in coaching. I know, I am a coach and a pretty good one…I’m just not good at coaching myself. I think, if you’re honest with yourself, you’ll agree that you’re not the best coach for you either.
Coaches help you see what you can’t see.
See for yourself….
