Most advanced coaches do not manage their clients, nor do they hold the client accountable. These are both useful tools when used by a manager with staff, and can work in the coaching relationship up to a point. However, the master coach wants to work with clients who want support, guidance, ideas and encouragement – not a manager.
It may seem right to expect your coach to manage you, and make sure you keep your word and get you back on track when you’ve become distracted. And you’d be right up to appoint, I mean it certainly is a part of the coaching relationship to do just that. Read more
Goals help us focus, they let us know how were doing. But there are two types of goals — the ones really want and the ones you should do. Losing 10 pounds is a should goal, wearing those size 32 inch swim trunks is a want goal. You see, you want to set goals that excite and inspire. you.
There is a third type goal we will call it a breakthrough project. A breakthrough project is so big or is so cool that your whole life upgrades and shifts as a result of focusing on it. Read more

Hello my friends it’s Greg Clowminzer here, your San Diego Business Coach. And in this video I want to talk about who manages the boss. That might be you, but who manages the boss. So, let’ talk a little bit about management, so briefly there are a couple ways people get into a management position. One of the ways is by being an entrepreneur which automatically makes you the boss. However most of these people will not have the management skills necessary to develop their staff, and they may be really stressed out in growing the business. Although, they may have a brilliant mind, they also have a really hard time conveying there needs, wants and vision to the people around them. Read more
In this video San Diego Business Coach – Greg Clowminzer, talks about direction, specifically within the realm of coaching.
I would like to start off with a question for you to consider. If somebody came up to you and asked you for directions, what’s the first question that you’d asked them, what would be your natural response.
Just think about that for a minute.
Your first natural response would probably be something like, where are you trying to get to. Within coaching a lot of times the clients gets to a point where they’re feeling frustrated, the coaching client may desire or feel they need more direction. And the coaches response to that is, in order for you to gain a sense of direction the first thing you really need to look at is destination.
Destination is the precursor to direction and without it, nobody can really help give you directions.
In business coaching one of our primary focus as business coaches, is on clarification of destination or clarification of outcomes. In this video, what I want for you, is to get into the mindset, of asking yourself where do I really want to get to.
Another way to approach this is to ask yourself, what do I really want, how do I want it to be, how do I want it to look, how do I want it to feel. Whatever “it” is whether it’s your business, your life, your relationship, or your sales goals.
Whatever “it” is, ask yourself, what do I really want.
Watch this video as I share a strategy for helping you gain context with this simple but sometimes overwhelming question.
