Getting a second opinion from someone you can trust will always help you take a better decision. A good coach or mentor who knows you well and has solid business experience can be of inestimable value in helping you achieve your goals.
The most important fact you should keep reminding yourself of is that your personal time is the most valuable asset you have. You cannot borrow time if you fritter it away. There are so many possibilities and opportunities but to get a good life balance of work, family and the activities you really enjoy, you must know when to say No. It’s not easy but a good coach will remind you when No is the right answer and what direction you should be focusing on.
Work with someone where there is mutual respect and you can communicate well back and forth in a timely way. Here are some of the benefits a good coach can deliver:
- A second opinion based on knowledge, skills and experience
- Specific advice that will work for you
- Team support in handling how the future develops
