Chad Cooper leadership coaching doesn’t just show you how to be a better leader, it shows you how to be a better person by thinking in a way you’ve never thought before. What does that mean? Let’s use the example of someone who has built up their own business. They didn’t accomplish this by being lazy. They got to work early, worked late, spent extra time on nights and weekends researching ways to improve and get better. It’s a never-ending job and they did everything they could to succeed. Now the company is growing and while that’s great, there are new challenges that have the be dealt with.
One example is how you have to hire more people to help you. You cannot do the work on your own anymore and you need to expand your staff and properly manage them. You also have to keep up with the demands of more customers and make sure that everyone is happy. One of the other challenges that will come up is that you may need to show real leadership for the first time. You’ve been doing the work by yourself or with a few people for so long but now that you have a larger staff you need to know how to coach and motivate them.
The first thing Chad Cooper teaches during his leadership coaching sessions is the difference between being a boss and being a leader. Bosses bark orders and make employees unhappy. Leaders lead by example and give their team everything needed to succeed. Furthermore, they take the time to learn about the people who are working with them. Why? Because the more you know about these people, the better you can utilize them and put them in a position to succeed. If someone struggles with customer service but outworks everyone when it comes to unloading a truck, guess what you should have them do? This is where you can separate yourself from other business owners and set yourself and your company up for success.
