A Better Coach, A Better Me

May 19, 2016 by John Andrew Williams

Beginning ALC 2.0 last October, I was a bundle of nerves masked with a confident smile, thinking I was a coach who had everything everything figured out. At first, I was closed off to the process and focused on learning the material more than experiencing the process.

Being in coach training was like being on a rope swing on a beautiful summer day over crystal clear water. For the first couple of weeks, I was just hanging in there, getting rope burn and MISSING OUT. Once I let go, I experienced refreshment as a coach and as a client in multiple areas of my life.

I was challenged. I was pushed. I was THRILLED! I found myself growing in confidence the more I jumped and took risks. My experience was beyond learning new coaching skills and approaches, I learned how to be a better version of myself.

I could have walked away from training with rope burns and a brave face, but instead, I find myself stronger, ready to make my splash in the coaching world. Are you?
