You might think you’re serving your clients better by bending over backwards for them…but what if setting boundaries in your coaching practice actually helped you be a better coach?
We all know that it’s impossible to pour from an empty cup. When demands on your time, energy, and resources increase, it’s up to you to decide when enough is enough. But, as coaches, we have a tendency to keep giving even when we’ve got little left.
There needs to be a balance between serving your clients to get them the very best results and empowering them with their independence and responsibility. If you’re constantly over-delivering, you’re teaching your clients that they can expect this premium service from you without putting in any extra effort themselves. This can be incredibly counter-intuitive!
So, it’s important to set and protect boundaries in your coaching practice – not only for your sake but also to ensure that your clients are getting the best possible service from you.
I explore the three most important areas you need to set boundaries as a coach in this episode of The Mindset Coach. I break down why you need to protect your time, energy, and financial resources, and how setting these boundaries in your coaching practice can help make you a better coach.
