Coaching coaches is interesting. There are many reasons for becoming a coach, some are noble, some are quite disturbing, but let’s focus on the ones we work with, the ones who use their own experience to help their clients avoid making some painful and costly mistakes.
They have gone through difficult situations so they can use all those insights to make it easier for others. Stories are important as most people learn that way, they inspire others, however the message can get lost. Stories can be motivating, they can give us hope, but if it is not clear how to overcome challenges, ultimately, we are going to sink deeper instead of getting out of our misery.
Models break down complex reality into manageable components, that is their value. They are tools we can use, they won’t fix anything on their own. On this other side of this spectrum you will find people who get so passionate about them like kids get excited about their new toys and they think their clients will be equally motivated to want it. Usually that is not the case.
Clients care about the problem you solve. They want to know if you truly understand them, if you really care about them and then they want to know if you are capable of helping them. What you use is not that important. What matters is that you make that process as uncomplicated and practical as possible.
I am often asked about ICQ and Global DISC and my answer is usually the same. Global DISC is great, it works, but it is just a tool, it means not much without Uncommon Mindset. That is the foundation.
ICQ to the coaching and leadership field is like CrossFit is to the fitness industry.
It seamlessly integrates the most practical skills with a powerful mindset to prepare people for whatever challenge they might face.
ICQ is the foundation of Uncommon Mindset and Global DISC is the technology behind it.
There are several options to get involved as clients or a licensed partner. Get in touch to find out if becoming part of the ICQ World supports your vision or not. The more you know, the better decision you can make for yourself.
