Mental Coaching To Change Your Business Attitude

Jun 9, 2008
Mental coaching has been utilized for a long time by those involved in sports, as a way of generating mental preparation for the rigors of the game or the competition. However, mental coaching skills that are applied in a sports setting, can easily be applied also to business communication.

The process of increasing communication between personnel and executives can be a very complicated process in any business. There are a wide variety of different factors like power, income, and education that causes a natural separation. But, teaching the varying groups to work together can be a great asset to any business or organization.

Getting employees to identify and rid themselves of the unhealthy beliefs that hold them back from producing quality work is one to get employees to communicate more effectively. For instance, a worker who feels their ideas are not valued by the executives may choose not to share them which in turn may hinder the company from improving overall.

Yet an alternate way to improve overall communication in this style of coaching is to come up with "game plans". In this approach, the groups must work collectively to decide upon an overall goal and then determine the path they need to take to reach it. This rule of mental coaching allows for the several departments to take on specific areas of work without the fear that they are outside of their element or working on something they should not be.

Another rule of sports mental coaching is 'Increase your trust in the arena.' Obviously there is no 'arena' in business, but executives must actually learn to trust each other to generate success in their organization. Oftentimes, executives are afraid that if they don't do something themselves, it won't be done right, but that is generally not true. Thus, executives need to learn to trust those that they hire as good people, in fact the proper people to get the job done right.

The single most significant thing that can be achieved through mental coaching is convincing everybody that they really are all on the same page. Once all of the personnel trust each other and believe that what benefits the country benefits the individuals, the rest follows naturally.

There are many parallels between sports coaching and business coaching. Helping personnel to work in teams, to communicate, to trust their team mates and to develop good skills are similar in sports or business. Good communication is important to a sports team and good business communication is vital to any business. Mental coaching is used in both areas to define success, create a "game plan" and overcome the mental barriers to success. Developing a great team that understand the goals, understand their team and their roles is as important to a successful business as it is to a winning team.
