One of my greatest pleasures in life has been that of a coach. Whether on sports teams or within the dental industry it is something that constantly stretches me to grow so I can be more effective in coaching others. Often, we can enter a scarcity mindset causing us to act out in a sometimes irrational or primal manner also known as fight or flight but I believe there is one other reaction we don’t talk about which I call freeze.
You know that experience when your heart rate increases, your palms get sweaty, and as much as you would like to move or speak or do something you feel like a deer in headlights? It is as if the bottom of your shoes and your entire body have somehow been superglued together and you just cannot react; this is frozen or what we call stuck. When fear paralyzes us or those we care for it spreads like a cancer and can often cause more destruction than when we act. So, the question becomes how do you know when you are frozen and how can you get unstuck?
With an AMP Dental Coach, we are your first line of defense teaching you through state management how to identify triggers, change behavior, and create your desired outcome. I won’t blow smoke and tell you it is easy. While it is simple and produces profound results, you get what you put into our time together. My favorite thing about being coached by our CEO, Darren Kaberna, and in coaching others is the expectation to be coached through truth, love, and restored hope to change. We teach our Doctors and in turn they teach their teams how to work through scarcity mindset, break old stories and habits, and create the life they truly desire.
When they get stuck we coach through the pain to get to the other side; hence we were take the approach as a dental coach versus a dental consultant. What I want to leave you with in reading this is the understanding that your coach will always fight for you but not without you. Show up, step up, and be ready to work. If you truly want to change your life, change your business, and change your relationships then get ready to have a life and business coach who “honks” the horn when you go deer in headlights frozen. We love our clients and the transformations they share with us help us see them and one another through any challenging coaching situation. Don’t believe we can? Then call us and try; that is, if you want to get unstuck.
