Is there ever a chance an introvert could become a great coach? I honestly believe that personality type, nationality or gender do not determine a person’s ability to become a great coach. As long as you have the right attitude, the willingness to learn and the readiness to be taught, it wouldn’t take long before you’ll unearth your potential. If you believe in all your heart that you will be a great coach someday, trust me, it’s going to happen. In fact, it may even happen sooner than you think. Don’t get discouraged.
Even if you don’t have a lot of friends and you don’t know that many people because crowds and big events aren’t really your thing doesn’t mean you’ll never become a coach.
Does this mean you’ll give up your desire to be a coach and help people? I don’t think so. Just because you’re an introvert doesn’t mean you’ll never become a coach. As a matter of fact, I know a number of coaches in the industry who are introverts but they are doing so well in their coaching business! If they can do it, so can you!
Sure, coaching requires interaction but you can always choose the type of coaching environment you’ll have. For example, instead of coaching in huge crowds, you can opt for one-on-one coaching or small group interactions. Having a limited number of people to mentor doesn’t make you less of a coach.
Each coach is different, there are those who love holding big events and there are those who hold regular small group coaching sessions. Either way, massive crowds versus small groups is still okay because the whole point of what you are doing is to help people and if you can see that the people you are coaching are improving in their personal lives and in their businesses then you are on the right track.
The next time someone tells you you’re not fit to be a coach, don’t believe them. Embrace your uniqueness because you are awesome as you are!
