In this episode of the Mission-Critical Leadership podcast, Justin talks about his one big requirement from prospective clients to determine the quality of their fit with his coaching system. It starts by answering the question, “What’s at stake?”
The Crucial Question: What’s at Stake?
Sometimes we learn through success. More often, however, we learn through failure. Early in my coaching career, I had my “anti-client.” He was someone that was such a bad fit for me, we were both miserable. In today’s episode, we talk about what I learned from him, and how that shaped my future practice.
Now, with this information and insight, I ask all prospective clients one major question.
“What’s at stake?”
This question tells me why the work we will do matters and helps me gauge their commitment to coaching. More than that, it gives them clarity and focus as we start our journey.
It is also something you can use in your daily life to grow your own discipline.
Join me in episode 13 and we examine the crucial answer to the question, “What’s at stake?”
