#3 & #4 Defining Characteristics of Great Coaching

Characteristic 3: Purposeful

A coach explains their coaching philosophy upfront - bosses deal with correction
You must define your coaching philosophy, what is it? What is your personal brand. Define your expectations upfront. Spend significant amounts of time with new people explaining your mentality on customer service, decision making, time management, controlling costs, tasks that are required to get completed. By setting and establishing your expectations you are able to hold people accountable to your guidelines.  
My wife likes to tell a story about how I am firm up front and soft on the back. When we were first dating, I was not very open to divulge information about myself, in addition, I set up a number of boundaries and “rules” for the relationship. Over a period of time and getting to know her the rules become more relaxed and the structure of the relationship changed. Establishing that firm foundation allowed her to constantly be more impressed with my ability to compromise and reach joint decisions on things

Characteristic 4:  Systematic

A coach knows the fundamentals of each team member’s job 
- bosses did their job well were promoted
Successful coaches make sure their team is great at the fundamentals of their job, they practice them, drill them, and compliment great technique. You may be asking yourself how could I possibly know how to do each job. My suggestion is that you better learn each role and you better learn how to do that job well. You must know how your decisions affect the jobs to of your team. This is similar t
o when a sports coach develops a new play. They know what each player is supposed to do. What their responsibility is, and why it is important to the overall objectives of the team.
Successful coaches have a firm working knowledge of all the projects of each team member. The problem is that bosses often overload team members and assign projects the reflect poorly on the performance of the employee. This is not the case for you. As a successful coach you will have a firm working knowledge of all the projects of each team member. Great coaches know what projects each player is working on. In addition to knowing the projects, great coaches make it fun.

How to Eliminate Entitlement

A “How To Plan” For Parents of Spoiled Real Estate Children:  When I was younger, my neighbor had a crazy dog. Every day this dog would wait by the side of the road for vehicles to drive by. When a vehicle drove by, this crazy mutt would run down the road, barking and chasing everyone’s vehicle that drove by.  On one rainy day, I asked my neighbor “Do you think the dog is ever going to chase down one of  those vehicles?” My neighbor replied, “That’s not what worries me. What worries me is what he would do if he ever caught one.” Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless goals. Meaningless goals are goals that are not backed by values. Before you start defining your family goals you first need to define your values.  Goals not backed by values are meaningless and might as well be considered criminal activity.  If you want to define the life goals you first need to define your values. The framework for setting goals back by values can be defined in the value go

3 Ways You Might Be Raising Entitled Children When You Work in Real Estate

And What to Do About it.    A family was having a good time on the lake. It was a beautiful summer day.  The warm sun from the sunny summer sky beat down on my exposed arms covered in sunscreen.  “Summer is not my favorite season, but at moments like this take the trophy,” expressed Mr. Relaxed.  Resting on his boat he observed the kinetic chaos of boats that had turned the summer’s peacefulness into a commercial expression of fun!   The cloudless day was perfect to enjoy with the family. The light blue sky seemed to smile at the brilliant blue-green waves.  “It feels so picture-perfect,” said the little one.  After an exhilarating boat ride, the family parked the boat in a cove and enjoyed swimming, and eating their lunch.  A father, mother, and daughter sat down to enjoy lunch, their sweet little girl was holding two pieces of cantaloupe in her hands. The mother leaned over and asked with a smile, “Beautiful little girl, could you give your mommy one of your pieces of cantaloupe?” Th
