Lessons learned to become a successful business leadership coach

A business leadership coach learns from

research, and reading. 

A business leadership coach learns from
quite a number of sources. One can learn from credentialed programs, classes,
your peers, your clients, research, and reading. Another source of information
can also be the Occupy movement that is currently practicing civil disobedience
across the country. You do not need to have the same beliefs to learn a
valuable lesson from this movement.

You may
be wondering what it is that you can learn from the Occupy Movement when it has
very little thing to do with a business
leadership coach, but contrary to what you may be thinking there is a lot
to learn. There are universal lessons that you can apply to different
situations. The Occupy Movement has populist leanings but a huge number of
Americans don’t identify with them. Why is this so? Is it because they do not
agree with their objectives? Or because their objectives are not clear
therefore Americans do not know exactly what their purpose is?

 You can
learn a lot from the Occupy Movement, but it isn’t what they did right but what
they have done wrong.Firstly, you must
have a point and you must get that point across your clients. It is important
that you have a clearly defined point during yourbusiness leadership coaching
sessions. The Occupy movement’s point was not clearly stated as we sometimes
may even think, did it have one in the first place?

To become a coach you
must have goals. Was anyone ever aware of the goals set by the Occupy movement
besides their goal of getting us to give them 1% of our money? If weren’t made
aware of their goals then this were their shortcoming. As abusiness
leadership coach setting goals and objectives that are clear to your
clients is part of your job.

Another lesson you can
learn from the Occupy movement is to provide solutions. An issue raised by the
movement is the income gap in the United States which they didn’t provide a
solution for. If there is a problem at hand, you should be able to provide a
solution or at least a plan to reach a possible solution. Usually a successfulbusiness
leadership coach has one or the other.

The Occupy Movement
alienates potential people from joining their cause because they stay too long.
They overstay their welcome which sometimes may make people suspicious of their
motives. As a coach the same applies. Do not schedule a high number of sessions
for a client as this may alienate them or even make them doubtful of the
purpose of each session. Clients differ, but it is always advisable not to overstay
your welcome.

It may be odd to learn
valuable lessons from a movement that has no clear intentions, but lessons can
be learned in the strangest places and this is one strange place!
