The Secret To Being A Professional Coach

THERE IS A SECRET to being a professional coach. If you can just learn the secret, you will instantly be a great coach…

Nonsense.

Here’s Ursula K Le Guin on the pervasive myth that there is a secret to being a writer:

“Myth: There is a secret to being a writer. If you can just learn the secret, you will instantly be a writer.

I will dispose of [this] myth as quickly as possible. The “secret” is skill. If you haven’t learned how to do something, the people who have may seem to be magicians, possessors of mysterious secrets.

In any complex art, such as…[coaching] there are so many techniques, skills, choices of method, so many variables, so many “secrets,” some teachable and some not, that you can learn them only by methodical, repeated, long-continued practice — in other words, by work.

[Here’s] a warning to the unskilled: What works for me isn’t going to work for you unless you’ve worked for it.”

Ok. I lied.

There is a secret.

DO THE WORK.

Love. Rich
