3 Steps to Unlocking Potential
When you explore and uncover an individual’s potential, you can achieve surprising results.
As a job coach, it’s your role to see the potential that lives within each client’s so you can open up new pathways and develop their soft skills so that they feel more confident in their ability to find a job. When your clients realise their potential, they can create a plan for their goals with employment playing a very important part of reaching their dreams.
There are two important beliefs you need to deeply commit too when working with your clients:
- You have the potential to help your clients find their way (and this may look different for every client).
- Your clients have the potential to find their way and achieve anything they want.
This quote from Joahnn Wolfgang Von Goethe is incredibly powerful and forms a perfect frame for what we are trying to create with our clients:
“If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.”
These three essential steps will help you unlock potential and start to see your clients in a whole new light.
Over the years, I have had job coaches and consultants ask questions like:
How are you doing it?
How are the Bounce Trainers getting clients to turn up every day?
How are they getting them to apply for jobs?
How did you get them a job?”
There’s no magic wand or secret sauce. It is as simple as deeply believing that everyone in my training room has the potential to be employed. Then, my unconscious communication is always geared to supporting the clients with a focus on succeeding at whatever they choose to be their next steps.
