In these challenging times, we have all seen a lot of heroes who are first responders, but recognize that you can be a hero too in your own way.

Our media, TV, movies and books are all built around the hero. 

Who do you want to be a hero to?

Who are you being a hero to now?

And how can you expand, impact and influence those people and other people’s lives?

Heroes define a story.

Heroes are on a secret mission.

Heroes go the extra mile.

Heroes act when they’re afraid.

Heroes overcome amazing obstacles.

Heroes defeat the enemy.

Heroes are people that on the outside seem normal or average, but on the inside, they have something extraordinary.

Heroes are the people that make a difference and impact in the world. 

Who do you want to be a hero to?

Who are you a hero to?

And, how can you be a hero all the time?

At Confidence Coach we are here to offer business owners a place to reconnect and rebuild their confidence and help you be that hero that you really want to be. Reach out today and schedule a free call if you’d like to talk. We are here to help and encourage you.

Why is courage one of the most important values or qualities that you can have in your life and in your business?

“Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery and I promise you something great will come of it.” From Benjamin Mee’s book, We Bought a Zoo

Sometimes you don’t even need 20 seconds of bravery — just one act.

What if you asked your team at the weekly or monthly meeting what they did that took courage in the last week or month and made this a question you asked them on a regular basis?

What if you asked yourself this question at the end of every workday for the next 30 days? 

There’s one thing that I guarantee would happen. Your world would be transformed.

What’s one small act of courage you could take today?

Share it with us!

Over the past several years of working with companies we’ve developed a process called The Dream Employee. It’s a great way to find out what motivates your employees. By going through a simple questioning process with each one of your team members at your company on a monthly basis, we help, support and encourage them to achieve their own personal goals and dreams. 

When you know your employees on a personal level, it helps them to see the connection between their goal or dream and their work that they are doing in your company. It helps create collaboration and makes a connection to their job that helps with retention, motivation and engagement to the company’s vision.

People that are achieving their own personal goals or dreams are internally motivated so you don’t have to do all the motivating every day, every month or every quarter.

All you have to do is help them make the connection between their job and their own personal goals. Your company culture changes once they realize that you really care, and show them that their work is a vehicle that can help them achieve some of their goals and dreams.

The Dream Employee is a benefit that you can give to your employees that is different from what other companies are doing. This gives you an advantage in the marketplace.

Reach out to us for a free consultation to learn more about what this could do for you and your company.

With all that’s going on in this difficult time, are you really being “present” and in the moment? Or, do you feel like you are spending most of your time worrying about the future and what’s going to happen tomorrow? Are you trying to figure out when and if things will get back to normal? 

One thing I know for sure is that all we really have is today. 

I encourage you not to miss what’s happening today — in your family life, in your business, with your customers. 

Don’t miss the people you are with. Maybe you are chaffing at the social distancing and not able to get out of your home. In that case, you still need to be connecting with people although it may look differently via zoom or Skype. Or in some cases, your children are at home while you are working remotely. Are you actually spending more time with them or setting aside time just for them?

Decide today that you are going to be present.

Experience all today has to offer. You can never get this day back once it’s over. Once it’s gone; it’s gone forever.

Tell people that you love them.

Pass on joy to somebody whether it be a family member, customer or an employee.

There are a lot of things to learn during this difficult season. We all have a lot of areas to grow. There are lots of new things to experience.

Are you actually thinking about what new things you are learning today? Are you actually thinking about things this way? Is this your mindset at this time?

At Confidence Coach we offer business owners a place to reconnect and rebuild their confidence; which leads to their better future in the days and years ahead. Reach out today and schedule a free call if you’d like to talk. Let us help you make progress and really be present today.

The simple act of being grateful makes us feel better and is good for the soul. I would encourage you to limit your watching of television and news coverage because it can set you on edge and increase anxiety unnecessarily.

We need to practice self-care and one of those ways is to be grateful. Express your gratitude to God and others and feel your own spirits lift. In our coaching we often encourage our clients to practice gratitude and make it a habit. If you already have this habit or practice, you especially need it now when we are going through difficult times with COVID-19 all around us.

I like to remind people to think about their thinking. Here are some questions that come to mind that you should ask yourself:

  • How am I going to react to this?
  • How am I going to process this?
  • How am I going to think about this?
  • How am I going to respond?

Now, more than ever, practice gratitude and thankfulness each and every day. There is always something that you can find to be grateful for — family, friends, the sunshine, the rain, flowers that are coming up, the beauty of nature. At least, start there and see what else you can come up with.

If you are meeting with your team (either at the office or remotely), start your meetings out by asking them to share one or two things that they are grateful for that day. This will be an encouragement to them.

At Confidence Coach we offer business owners a place to reconnect and rebuild their confidence; which leads to their better future in the days and years ahead.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a business coach that you worked with? Well, I thought I would give you an idea of where we start and what our approach is and answer a few of the FAQ’s or most frequently asked questions.

Our real approach to coaching is a conversation. It’s a conversation around you, your past, what has happened, what’s worked, what hasn’t; your present, where you’re at now; and then the future of where you want to be 3 years from now. 

When I first speak with someone I ask a series of questions. With that conversation, I am really just trying to listen and to see where we might provide a breakthrough or an inspiration for you to have a better future — to get you where you want to go (both in your business and in your personal life). 

FAQ

I know a lot of people have concerns and questions around what does it mean to be coached? What does that feel like? What’s that like? But really at the beginning, it’s just a conversation. It’s just questions and finding out whether or not we’re a fit for you; you’re a fit for us; and whether or not you feel comfortable in the way we approach it. 

All this is done upfront and you are under no obligation and no fee whatsoever. It’s just a simple way to give you a taste of what we do. 

Our goal is to lead you to a breakthrough or an insight every time. This includes the first time. By helping you think about your thinking, we want you to realize that there’s a bigger future out there for you. We want to show and help you realize that you’re not alone. We’re here and we understand. We’ve been in your shoes, and we’ve run several different businesses of all different sizes. Our clients run anywhere from a solo entrepreneur to a Fortune 500 company. 

We come with a vast amount of experience, but our real value is believing in you and seeing what’s possible in the future. We help you remove the obstacles that you have so you can get to where you want to go, thus creating the life and business that you want. 

This is how we work. This is who we are. We’re just normal people like you, and we love what we get to do, and we have a real passion around it.

Reach out if you’d like to schedule a free consultation and go through some questions that will help you build a better future.

Look back today and think about the power of your dream and goal and how much significance that had when you first started your company.

I’ve got an idea or thought for you that hopefully will unleash some new potential and new energy so you can build a bigger future for you and your company.

As you are looking back, think about the beginning when you first started your company or business.

What kind of odds were you up against?

According to statistics and the Small Business Association (SBA) 30% of new businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years and 66% during the first 10. The SBA also states that only 25% make it to 15 years or more.

So, when you started, the odds of you still being in business today were stacked against you,

But here you are 5,10, 15, 20, 25, or perhaps even 30 years later, and you’re still in business! Congratulations! That’s amazing!!

As I said earlier, go back and think about the power of the motivation your goal gave you to start the business. Your goal was not only to start it — but to make it successful and profitable, to build a team, and to create value in the marketplace. Your goal gave you determination and focus that has carried you to where you are today. 

Now, here’s a question for you. Do you or don’t you believe that every person has some type of goal or dream for themselves in some way?

If your answer was yes, then why haven’t you tapped into that or harnessed that in your own company?

Meaning, why haven’t you tapped into the power of the dream and goal that is inside every person’s inner self?

If everyone on your team had the same kind of focus, drive and effort that you had, you would have a great multiplier. You would have an ability and unfair advantage over all your competition in the marketplace today.

Let’s think about all the untapped potential in each one of your employees.

How can you start to unleash that in your business?

How do you know what will truly engage your employees?

Look at your own story of becoming a business owner. You had a Dream and a Goal. Think back to all the energy, drive, passion, work, sacrifice and creativity it took to achieve your Goal.

Well, all of your people have their own personal Dreams and Goals that they deeply care about too!

What kind of difference would it make in your business if you provided support, belief in and championed their success?

This would overwhelmingly transform their experience, thoughts, attitude and concern for your business because you cared about them.

I believe that by supporting your employees dreams and goals, they will in turn become much more engaged and focused in their own work and ultimately help you achieve your goals and dreams much faster.

Have you set the Vision for your Employees?

Vision creates higher Engagement!!!

Not once but everyday!

Vision is the oxygen to propel people forward — the clearer; the better!

Cast the Vision to your wife, kids, family and friends!

Set the Vision so strong for your Employees that they can feel it, see it, touch it!

Shout it from the mountain tops!

I believe in your Vision!!!

Without a Vision the people perish but without courage Dreams die!   

–Rosa Parks 

Greater vision equals greater engagement by your team. Reach out and schedule a free consultation if you want to implement this at a higher level. We’d love to show you how.

If you are a leader, owner or CEO who believes that a paycheck and benefits is going to get great effort from the majority of your employees — you’re wrong!

You will continue to have high employee disengagement, poor work culture, low collaboration between employees, lack of creativity and energy to serve your paying customers and a lack of your own company’s goals being achieved. 

Until you do something radically different from the other business owners beyond a paycheck, benefits and some time off, you are going to keep getting the same results from your “first customers” (your employees) as you are now! 

You need to do something different that will start to truly inspire your employees to show up as a better version of themselves everyday!

Here’s the beauty — you already know how to do this for yourself.

Remember when you started your business?

You had a Dream or Goal! 

How did that make you feel? 

  1. You were Excited!
  2. You had more energy
  3. You solved problems
  4. You worked super hard
  5. You got smarter
  6. You found people who could help you build your business
  7. You made progress towards achieving your goals and dreams

Wouldn’t you like to be the Hero in your employees lives by being the champion of their deepest goals and dreams?

At Confidence Coach we can help you be that Hero!

When you begin to know your employees on a personal level, it helps them to see the connection between their goal or dream and the work that they are doing in your company. It helps create collaboration, as well as makes a connection to their job that helps with retention, motivation and engagement to the company’s vision.Your company culture also changes once they realize that you really care, and show them that their work is a vehicle that can help them achieve some of their own goals and dreams.

Reach out and schedule a free consultation if you’d like to learn more about The Dream Employee program. We’d be glad to come in and do a free demonstration to show you the transformation of how this will energize your people.
