Ask yourself these four (4) questions:

1.Do people like me at work?
2.Do I like my work?
3.Do I stand out in anyway or do I blend in with the crowd?
4.Am I able to present my ideas?

If you answer no to any of these questions, you could use a coach!

What does a Coach do?
A coach works with you privately to provide objective feedback and professional direction in order to increase your performance.

Why is there a need for coaches?
In order to thrive and survive, it's not what you know and whom you know. You must have the ability to stand out from the crowd. People must be able to notice you when you are not trying to be seen!

How do I know I need a coach?
The best time to seek a coach is after a setback or an upwardly event. A setback can be no customers, low sales or losing an account. An upwardly event could be a promotion or wanting to improve your communication skills.

Who makes a good coach?
A good coach is someone objective, qualified and highly skilled at motivating people to change. He/she is a person who can ask the right questions, assess potential problems and established instant rapport with a wide range of people.

What are the benefits of having a coach?
There are many benefits to having a coach. Here are just a few:

Improve your personal and professional appearance
Learn how to deal with difficult people
Communicate more effectively
Problem solve more effectively
Become a leader that is seen not just heard

The goal of a coach is to help you be more, do more in order to bring out your very best and to make you more of a productive and valuable employee. No matter what the goal, everyone needs coaching if they are to be successful!
