How is coaching different to talking to some my business friends or partner?
- You may be competing for air time. They may have their own concerns that they are eager to talk about.
- They may give you advice you did not ask for and are not ready to hear.
- They may not be interested but not feel able to tell you.
- Confidentiality may be a concern.
- No follow up or accoutability.
- They may think everyone else should be like them instead of the best version of who they are.
- They are not professionally trained in facilitating your own thinking.
