One of the most effective ways to improve your personal and professional effectiveness and to rise to a new level of excellence is to find a mentor to coach you. Success in business and in life is a “connect the dots” Process. All you need to do is find out the habits, disciplines and strategies that others have used to obtain their results and connect the dots by duplicating their actions. Once you follow the steps they have taken, in the order they have taken them in, you are bound to get the same results. A personal coach can illuminate your path, encourage you when times get tough and shave years off your learning curve.

I found most of these special advisers by asking people whom I admired one of the most powerful questions in all of the English language, “Would you please help me?” Not one of the people I approached refused to offer me the gift of their knowledge and the benefit of their experience. Many of my mentors have since become valued friends and my life would not be what it now is without them.

Coaching has become one of the most important elements to a complete programme of personal and professional experience. People from all walks of life have recognised this as one of the best ways to create positive changes and lasting results in their lives. As an executive in one of the monthly life - coaching programs I offer in cities across the country recently said, “Inspirational books helped me to define my dreams. Being in your personal coaching program showed me precisely how to achieve them, while bringing back the balance in my life.”
