Why Would Anyone Need Coaching & Mentoring?
Accomplishing something significant all by yourself feels great, doesn't it? If you think back on your greatest accomplishments, though, were they actually the result of an individual effort?
You were most likely encouraged and motivated by friends, family, loved ones, colleagues, and yes, maybe even coaches. Think back to your childhood. Did you play a sport? Were you a musician? Did you spend your time trying to "get to the next level" of performance in anything? Most of us can remember a coach or a mentor (even if not formally labeled as such) who motivated us, guided us, and made sure we were heading in the right direction.
And then adulthood came. We are supposed to know it all, right?
The most successful people in the world are constantly learning. Constantly yearning. Sticking it to the status quo, and changing the game that most don't even know exists.
Getting to the next level
Coaching and mentoring are central to the lives of those we look up to these days, from our role models in business, arts, entertainment, politics (just kidding, but seriously, they have mentors, too), to those we admire in education, medicine, law, etc.
The mistake we see all too often is when people try so hard to succeed in one area of life, while at the same, they seem to fail miserably in another. It becomes almost impossible to juggle everything at once.
This brings us to one of our featured coaches, Greg McKeown, an individual who has researched, mastered, and communicated the art of focusing on what's most essential in order to get yourself to the next level.

McKeown is the author of the book Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, (Crown Business, April 2014). If you haven't read his book or seen his videos, he speaks from a foundation of extensive research and asserts that "success" itself is the very roadblock that is holding highly capable individuals back from getting to the next level. In his lectures and writings, McKeown recommends that we take stock on what's most essential, then eliminate those things that are not essential, and finally build a platform for what he calls "effortless execution" in order to break through to the next level. The best ways to learn from Greg are to read his books, blogs, and articles, watch his videos, and sign up for his newsletter.

Bobby is a former Major League Baseball player who spent time with the Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners, and a range of other teams throughout his professional pitching career. Born in September of 1982, Bobby has a wealth of life experiences that amount to more expertise than most others his age. He has decided to devote his efforts to the future success of other ballplayers and now spends his days coach kids of all ages. He is different than most baseball coaches you will find, as his advice and mentoring come from a blend of personal experience, trial and error, successes and failures, and most of all, passion for the game of baseball and what it means to our country's youth and how they develop themselves for their path in life. Bobby spends most of his time in Missouri, but gets back to Texas now and then as well. You can find him most days giving a lesson, just finishing a lesson, or about to give a lesson to one of his students. Coaching kids is more than just a business for him, it's an investment in a partnership and a long term transformation that both he and his students can look back and be proud of after years in the making.
