I’ve been coaching for a long time, and I have three immutable principles to guide me:
- I can’t help anyone who doesn’t want to be helped, and I don’t try.
- I give you my very best advice. Whether you accept it and act on it is a commentary on you, not me.
- If there are three options and I suggest the first, but you prefer the second and I think it will work, I will help you. But if you prefer a third that clearly won’t work, I’m not going to help you to fail.
