It's Not You. It's Them.
I got a lot of great feedback from my last rant blog post (if you missed it you can read it here) and since I have more in me, here we go….. 🙂
In one of the Facebook groups I belong to, someone had posted "I'm tired of people blaming their coach if they don't get results. It's not them, it's you. Do the work and you'll get the results."
I’m calling bulls&*t on this. My response was something similar to the following...
As with any profession, there are great coaches, not so great coaches, and coaches who have no business being coaches.
Plus you have to take into account the different coaching styles, so perhaps the coaching style doesn’t match the person’s learning/growing style.
Are there instances where the client doesn’t do the work? Of course. But to make a blanket statement and say that this is always the case, is not only wrong but can be damaging to the client.
Their response was that there is always a lesson to be learned and it’s up to the client to be resourceful and get the work done. Last time I checked, clients aren't hiring people to get a lesson…they want a result. Second, if they were that resourceful to do the work on their own, they probably wouldn’t need the service. Just sayin'.
Hugs & high fives
Before You Invest In A Program/Course....
When you see an offer that will help you get clients, whether the strategy is how to; do webinars, do Facebook ads, launches, engage people on social media…you name it, the strategy alone will not get you clients.
Are these strategies good to learn? Of course. But they won't do you a lick of good if you don't know how to write content that gets people's attention and moves them to take action.
You can either learn to do this on your own or you can hire someone to do it for you. It’s one thing to know how to put together a webinar to get clients and it’s a whole different ball of wax getting people to sign up for it.
