If you had the opportunity to hire a coach to help you in some area of your life would you do it?
Asking for help is a sign of strength and yet I know I am always very hesitant to ask for help. I guess I like to pretend that I know it all.
If someone had offered me coaching services while I was in college would I have taken them up on the offer?
I've been thinking about who uses coaches and what a coach does. Successful athletes always have a coach. I know that corporate executive often have a high powered executive coach. Actors often have an acting coach. In all these situations the people who have coaches are the top people in the field. Not every manager at Sun Microsysstems got a coach. You have to be very serious about your athletics to have a coach. You have to be serious about your acting to have a coach.
My daughter Allison works for a company called InsideTrack. They offer coaching for college students. InsideTrack has coached more than 250,000 students at more than 50 campuses nationally.They have a strong data backed record of helping students be successful.
Up until recently Inside Track sold their services to colleges and offered their services only to students at partner colleges. They have just launched an offering of coaching services direct to students. Individual students can
advantage of coaching, even if their school is not an
InsideTrack partner. As part of the launch they are offering a free session and friends and family pricing. If you are interested or you know someone who might be interested just go to this link http://www.
I hope that if I was in college today I would jump at the chance to have a coach who was invested in my success. Someone who would give me an edge. Someone who was focused on me and my success.
