The Power of Personal Coaching

Robert Terson

If you click on the Coaching & Training Testimonials page on this site, you’ll see a story I tell about how I got drafted into doing some professional personal coaching and training (I’ve been doing plenty of the pro bono variety for quite a while now). This is what I said:

…some individuals insisted that I professionally coach them, which I agreed to do. After I argued with two of them about it, said I wasn’t “professionally trained” as a coach, both told me they didn’t care about that. This is what one said: “Your 40 years of business/selling experience has already given me more value than any ‘professionally-trained’ coach could ever provide; you ask the probing questions that need to be asked, that put me in touch with what I can’t figure out, visualize for myself regarding my goals and dreams; I need you to do this for me!” Well, that sort of hit me between the eyes, so I made the decision to coach up to five people, but that’s my absolute limit! I’m retired, my wife’s sense of humor notwithstanding.

There’s also been a demand to work with, train, a number of sales teams around the country who’ve read my book. But this too will be on a limited basis! At my age there’s only so much of me to go around, my friends. I’m not going to avail myself unless I can provide great value, and I can only provide that kind of value on a very limited basis.

This is my retirement gig, my way of staying in the arena and remaining relevant. My focus is not on making a ton of money; my purpose to help you and the people of your organization reach heights of success that will simply astound you.

I’ll tell you this right now: if we work together, I won’t rest until you’re the best you can be, until you’re the person you’ve always dreamed of becoming, until you’re a master at what you do. If that isn’t what you demand of yourself, I’m not your guy. If it is…call me, and together we’ll transform your life. If I have a slot open, I’ll give you the best I have in me, at what my colleagues have told me are ultra reasonable fees.

Hey, I’m retired.

The fascinating aspect of this professional coaching and training work I’ve been doing is that it’s transformed me! It’s exciting, rewarding beyond measure to watch my clients grow, in some cases soar, become so much more than they ever thought they could be. It’s sort of like watching Clark Kent turn into Superman. I’ve been helping others succeed for over four decades now, but nothing I’ve experienced in that arena has come close to this. Talk about a Win-Win

I’ve come to understand that a personal coach can make all the difference in a person’s life. So I want to encourage you to think about getting one. A good one who will help you pursue your Great Dream, help you grow, help you achieve Greatness, help you achieve your Destiny.

There are plenty of terrific coaches out there; a good many of them are friends of mine. If I don’t have a slot open, I’ll point you in the right direction.

Most people, even those who have already achieved a fair measure of success, have no idea of the true power within them. The right coach can put you in touch with that power. Athletes have been proving that to themselves since time began; you can too.
