As I reflect about what I have done recently in my coaching business. I have gained a huge sense of satisfaction from the many individuals that I have been able to help who have suffered traumatic injuries, which can and are very devastating to these individuals and their families. I have been blessed in my life to have had wonderful coaches and teachers who have taught me the skills that I have used with the talents that God has given me to be able to have the patience and empathy for these individuals and families. I also understand that many times these individuals and families are looking for someone who is willing to get into this” deep dark pit” with them and guide them out. This is done by coming up with strategies that are specific to the individual. I have found that all individuals are different. Regardless of the injury, they need and want to be treated in a way that they respond to. I have always used what I call the “Race Horse” treatment. If I treat someone like the owner of a race horse takes care of his horse. I have always found I got amazing results by treating someone special. This is nothing new, I’m just amazed that others don’t see the value in this. I have worked with others who call it the “10” treatment. If you treat everyone like a “10” you will be surprised by what you get.
One of the first things I noticed with most who have suffered from a traumatic injury is that they weren’t used to being treated special. This strategy, allows me to earn their trust. It is at that point that we can learn to work together to begin the journey out of this pit. At this point the healing journey begins. It is also at this point that miracles do happen.
