Gauge It.

Coaching is like eating an elephant.


The first, and most obvious, question is, why? Why eat an elephant? Or, in our context, why engage in coaching?


Next, and maybe more to the point, is, where do I begin? The leg? The belly? The trunk?


Here's a suggestion: Start with clarifying your end goal, what you want to do with all that elephant. Then journey back to your current starting point and begin there. If you're at the hind leg without a knife, then that's where you begin the journey forward tackling obstacles, navigating options, and discovering opportunities along the way.


If the end goal is to feed a village with that elephant meat, you might just get there twenty different ways living according to your values, growing in your faith and developing your skills along the way. And a coach helps navigate, re-frame, raise awareness and brainstorm along the way.


Q. What part of the elephant are you standing near?
