To coach is to serve, to serve is to succeed—SERVICE

Principle # 3

Principle # 3

The foundation of Principle-Centered Coaching is built on five core principles that present an image of the kind of coach I want to be.

By following these five principles found in “Build it Big” by Direct Selling Women’s Alliance, I strive to cultivate a supportive, safe environment in which my team will flourish. This is principle number three.

The Principle of SERVICE: When we serve others through our actions, we express the essence of leadership. Bu helping others get what they want, we experience the joy of making a difference. This is a way of working with your team that opens your heart and expands your own capacity to lead in the spirit of service.

I strive to form a deeper connection with my team by my willingness to serve and support them. Service is an attitude and must be interwoven into our daily lives. It is backing up my words with actions.

I choose to live by the Golden Rule, “Do to others as I would have them do to me. To Bless and not impress. A servant mind means putting others first, to not be afraid to forge the path through my own toil & sweat so others may follow.

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”. ~Winston Churchill

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking “What’s in it for me?” ~Brian Tracy

SERVICE says, “How can I help you?”

To coach is to serve, to serve is to succeed—RESPECT

Principle # 2

Principle # 2

The foundation of Principle-Centered Coaching is built on five core principles that present an image of the kind of coach I want to be.

By following these five principles found in “Build it Big” by Direct Selling Women’s Alliance, I strive to cultivate a supportive, safe environment in which my team will flourish. This is principle number two.

The Principle of RESPECT: When you show respect for another, you interact with dignity and kindness. You honor others no matter their accomplishments or perceived abilities. Giving and receiving respect builds self-esteem and confidence.

Coaching involves building your relationship one level at a time… kind of like builing a house. Start with a solid foundation, the TRUST I mentioned in Principle 1, then you can move on to RESPECT. RESPECT means taking the time to understand what that person is looking for or hoping to accomplish…to come along side and help them to get from point A to point B. Many times it is NOT in the way you may go to reach the destination, but it is in the way THEY choose to go…AND as a coach, YOU are a guest in their life. They are TRUSTING you to do life along side them, maybe not forever but for a season. RESPECT their decision. Coach to keep them on track but do not bully.

Whether you are a coach for a sports team, a networking team, or a health or life coach… Bring out the best in your team, show them they can do it, then stand back and let them go!
