Your relationship with your coach could be one of the most dynamic, empowering and life changing relationships you have.
A couple of years ago, I chose to run the New York Marathon, having never run before in my entire life. With no knowledge or experience, I didn’t know where to begin and had no idea of what it would take for me to be successful.
My coach, an experienced marathon runner, knew that he was working with a novice and he had no judgement about that. He first took the time to give me the whole picture and he then helped me break my training down into the key stages, and guided me during each one. He explained things I didn’t understand, encouraged me to adjust my diet, pushed me during the harder phases of my training, had faith in me when I was giving up on myself and validated me when I was doing things well. In the seven months we worked together, he always kept his eye on me to make sure I would be completely ready to handle the race itself.
Completing that marathon was one of my proudest moments and one of the items on my dream list. Without him, I may never have got there. Ray Martin
Although your dream may be different, the way you and I will work together will be similar. In a series of conversations, which can be done in person (where possible) and more typically by phone, you will have someone who is completely in service to you, to help you reach the place that you want to get to.
