One Hell Yes At A Time

Recently, I’ve been coaching the new CEO of a multi-million dollar medical equipment company.

It’s a business that has been running for 35 years. Many of the employees have been in the company for over 18 years. It’s a company with an unparalleled reputation in its industry.

The new CEO is a real visionary. He wants to take revenues to $30 Million in ten years. (Although, I’ve challenged him to do it in less than five!)

Below is the advert he placed recently for a new technician.

In a world where most technician ads are a list of responsibilities, duties, requirements and certifications required, this advert was like a breath of fresh air.

Bear in mind that this wasn’t a clever ad for his new Vice President. This was an ad for an entry level position at the company.

He was overwhelmed with responses, even a few angry ones.

But one email stood out from the rest.

He met the guy and knew instinctively that this was his man and he was hired on the spot.

P.S. If you want to be an Extraordinary Coach, stop solving the ‘problems’ your clients bring to the table.
Instead, dive deeper into their dreams and their desires than they’ve ever dared to go.

Help them dream bigger than they’ve ever dreamed.

And then help them get there.

One tiny step at a time.

And they’ll be grateful to you for ever…
