Leadership And Coaching

So far, we’ve looked at creating a winning game plan, adopting a winning mindset, some core principles to guide you, and four associated core strategies to help you win against stress. Today, we’re going to look at one more piece of the puzzle.

Leadership And Coaching

Leadership and coaching are two more crucial ingredients for winning against stress. The truth about winning the game called stress is that it’s not as easy as it looks (otherwise everyone would be doing it already). There are many more principles and additional high-powered strategies that you will need to learn how to master.

You can try to do this on your own, but that’s not how winners roll. Winners know that they can benefit from the guidance and wisdom of others to enhance and accelerate their performance.

What’s The Difference Between The Two?

When it comes to playing and winning the game called stress, I make a distinction between leadership and coaching. Leadership is about having one or two key mentors to help guide you along your path to success. They can provide you with the big picture view and help you acquire the high level concepts and strategies that will work best for you in the long run. Think of leadership as being similar to the manager of a baseball team or the head coach of a football team.

Coaching, on the other hand, is something you can find almost anywhere. It is simply taking advantage of other people’s abilities to help you see things (especially about yourself) that you can’t easily see…but others can.

Coaching is an essential STRATEGY for winning against stress. When you goal is to become very, very good at identifying and then dealing with the internal causes of your stress, you will need the help of others to pull this off. Don’t think of coaching like you would the lower level of coaches on a professional baseball or football team. You can definitely include those types of resources, but think much broader.

Think of your spouse as a coach who can help you. Think of your kids, your friends, the complete stranger sitting next to you on the train or airplane. Virtually anyone can serve as a coach for you , if you give them the right kinds of opportunities to assist you.

It Takes Much More To Win

Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed this very brief glimpse of what it takes to win against stress. Obviously, there’s much more to learn about and understand, but who’s in a rush. Keep exploring this new way of looking at stress and you’ll likely be rewarded many times over.
