In order to understand the history of business coaching, it’s important to go back to the history of coaching itself. No, we’re not going to take you way back to ancient Greece when athletes running from Athens to Marathon had physical and spiritual guides. But we’d like to start at the point when the idea of coaching travelled from the realm of sports to life.
Brad Sugars, Dream + Goal + Learn + Plan + Action, Part 3
What do you score?
Now give yourself a score out of 10 for each of these 5 points. Write it down on your page, you should all have a notepad there.
So here we are at dreams. What do you have out of 10? Now if you don’t have them documented, you can’t score much more than a 1 or a 2 if you don’t have it written down. Same with your goals. Your learning. What’s your learning like before you write the plan? What’s your plan like at the moment? And what’s your action like? How much of the right work are you doing?
If you went an wrote a plan based just on your current knowledge, would it be a good plan? No, it’d be just a plan that says, ‘Do the same thing as I was doing before.’ And that’s what got you to where you are, it won't get you to the next level. So until we do the learning, the planning doesn't make any sense.
