Perpetual Learning

This past month I participated in the Level 1 OPT CCP business systems course for the second time. I took the first ever edition of the course back in the day with James and Sean when it was live and in person, so this was a great opportunity to revisit my old notes and compare them with my new.

I got a TON of value from the course the second time around. One of the things I’ve heard from coaches over the years when contemplating participating in the CCP is that they don’t own a gym, so why would they take a business systems course? If you fit into this category then this post is written for you.

I don’t own a gym either, but within the coaching position that I work, I AM a business. I am in the business of coaching. And there is major value in looking at your core business values, your mission, your vision and your goals as a coach (or business owner or future business owner), that drives the service you provide. There is value in hearing Sean and James shed light on the subject and in contemplating what these things mean to you. There is value in writing these things down. Everything I wrote down in the first business systems course, I created and I’m now living it. That is powerful.

There is also HUGE upside to looking at your worth as a coach. How much are you worth and why? More on that next week though.

I deeply appreciated my first coaching call with Stacy from the course. I told her I wanted to play ball and play ball she did. She dug in with me and asked the tough questions that was cause for further reflection and action.

And some of the best value in the course came from listening to Sean and James answer questions from the participants. So much gold to be mined from the answers.

The bottom line is that I love learning and the insatiable curiosity inside me that feeds that drive also humbles me to know that I can always learn more. This round of business systems was no exception—I learned a lot that I can apply to my unique circumstance as a coach.
