Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal? Have you ever wondered how they got so good? There are several things these high performer have in common, talent, discipline, commitment, passion for the game and COACHING. Yep, they’ve all been coached continuously since their youth and in some cases since infancy to keep practicing not only what comes easy to them but also most importantly what doesn’t come so easy. ALL sports people have coaches because coaching works.
Although coaching has its origins in sports, today coaching is a technique that is being used by large corporate organizations to leverage their people and resources in order to maximize results (i.e. profits). The goal of coaching is to achieve a higher-level of achievement PERIOD. Serena Williams 8 -Time Grand Slam Tennis Champion and Olympic Gold Medalists has both a sports and life coach. Tony Robbins, the renowned life coach has the honor of helping her achieve more in her life.
