Coaching Tips…

Posted on : 28-03-2013 | By : Cathy | In : Uncategorized


Ask for what you want. Don’t assume that people know what you want or need in that moment and don’t make people guess what you want. It’s not a puzzle for them to figure out. This is a simple, yet often overlooked tip for getting what you want, asking.

Take Action! ”You can’t steal first base and keep your foot on first.” -Frederick Wilcox. Don’t wait until you feel more confident about your request; you become confident as a result of making the request, or doing the job. You gain skills in the face of doing something. Be will to practice and take action.

Smile. Inside the first 2 seconds of greeting someone. It’s the quickest, most effective way of building instantaneous rapport.
