Coach, Author, and Motivational Speaker
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is David Essel, a Coach, Author, and Motivational Speaker based in Fort Myers, Florida.
- Why athletes are often limited by psychology, not sports, and how therapists can help
- The critical importance of accountability in coaching
- How David builds a referral network with his client base
- Why choosing a clear coaching niche gives you an edge
“We’re really serious about accountability and homework, and that’s one of the beautiful things that coaches bring to the world. Don’t use your partner as your coach. Don’t use your mom, dad, sister, brother, or best friend. You need an outside, objective person [who is going] to hold your feet to the fire.”
