Reach for Help – Stay In Business – Chris Cotton [RR 788]

Why is reaching out for help so hard for so many people? Let’s break down the barriers and formalities and dive into what the first call to a business coach can be like. I’m with Aftermarket Radio Network host Coach Chris Cotton at ASTE 2022. Look, you don’t have a hobby you have a business that needs your attention to profitability. Never stop improving yourself and your business. Embrace accountability partners, peer groups, and coaching, and watch what you can do.

Key Talking Points

  • People who don’t reach out for help end up out of business or stuck not knowing what they need to know and not able to grow
  • Chris asks a lot of open-ended questions on the first call and asks what prompted them to reach out and what struggles you have in your business. 
  • If you’re not afraid to disappoint someone, then accountability does nothing
  • Join peer meetings and start networking to grow as the industry evolves
  • KPI is used to measure strategy and leadership improvements
  • Motivate, connect, and teach the younger generation
  • A lot of people use work as an escape or release. Show love within your organization
  • Hug until the other person breaks the embrace- are people hugging longer these days?
  • Take criticization as a stepping stone to level up
  • Reset your mind to be ready for the next thing
