Coaching Challenge: Respect Your Space

Pat Barber Coaching, Coaching Challenges

This week, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to treat the facility as though it’s your second home.

Not a disorganized, untidy second home.

But something you respect, a place you’d be really proud to show your loved ones.

This, of course, is pretty broad.

To reign it in, and make it measurable, we’re challenging you to look for things that are out of place as soon as you arrive at the facility.

As your greeting and mingling and settling in, look for things that need to be picked up or re-organized.

Maybe there’s trash on the floor.

Maybe someone didn’t put their equipment away, or they put it in the wrong place.

Maybe the bathroom is out of toilet paper.

Tidy things up as if your mother is coming over. Treat the place as if it’s yours.

Try to find at least 3 things every time you get there.

See. Notice. Do something about it.

This will not only show people that you care, but it’ll also remind people to respect the space. ⠀

I have the honor of being one of the few L4 coaches, and I still love teaching L1s and L2s for CFHQ (I’ve put about 15,000 coaches through their L1’s). I'm husband to the most wonderful woman in the world, and a father who loves surfing, Magic: The Gathering, knife making and good coffee.
