I recently had the pleasure of being invited, as coach, an important forum for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, in order to provide attendees with business coaching sessions that would contribute to carrying out a successful business in your industry.
Given the limited time available, since it had been much demand and it was a single day, the organization asked me to have sessions lasting only fifteen minutes. At first I admit I found it a challenge; as the standard time a business coaching session between an hour and hour and a half. But convinced that the challenges that help you grow as a professional, so excited I embarked on the project.
My purpose for these minisesiones coaching was to challenge employers to begin to see your business from a different point of view and make them aware of who they were as entrepreneurs, managers and professionals.
I was really surprised and excited when, at the end of the session I asked them what they had in those fifteen minutes of coaching conversation, heard reflections of the type: "I am overwhelmed by the urgent and this is causing a lot of damage to my business ", "It's crucial for me to spend time planning", "I have to spend time thinking about different ideas for my company", "I would stop being the employer man band and focus my energy ", "I have fear of making decisions; and if it takes long to do, competition will advance me "" I need to know when and to whom I have to say NO ", "It is essential to begin to motivate my team, no need to be complacent and soft ".
All these reflections, fruit of a session of fifteen minutes, I found them very inspiring and I am convinced that, without any doubt- will open a new door in his career. In addition to these findings, most employers were able to generate the necessary responsibility and committed to a first action to start walking towards the goal of achieving greater success in your business.
When I finished the day and stopped to draw my own conclusions, found that the effectiveness of coaching is over the time limit and that this method is powerful enough to, in minutes, magic is believed conducive for people to leave the session decided to take a path that will lead them to achieve their dreams.
