How to Coach Yourself Through Anything

Updated: Sep 18, 2023



“Before you can coach others first you must learn to coach yourself.”

-Johan Cruijff.


As a leader, you are responsible for your results and accountable for team, organizational, and market performance.

Feeling stuck and in need of a way forward?

Here's a simple 6-step process you can always use to coach yourself through anything:

1. Point Out Your Problem

Ask yourself:

  • What is the problem?

  • Where am I stuck?

2. Pin Your Destination

Ask yourself:

  • What is the ideal state I would like to be in?

  • Working backward from there, what are the 3-5 steps I/we need to take to get there?

3. Push Boundaries

Ask yourself:

  • What in my current context could get in the way?

  • How and or where could I get help to address that?

3. Plan Your Action

Ask yourself:

  • What is the first and most pressing action I need to take that would bring me/us the most impact?

4. Pull Resources

Ask yourself:

  • What support do I need to sustain the change effort?

  • How will I get them?

5. Periodic Review

Ask yourself:

  • How effective are my efforts?

  • What can I adjust to experience optimal results?

6. Push for Success

Ask yourself:

  • On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the least likely, 10 being the most likely) how likely am I to implement this plan?

  • If low, how could I increase the likelihood?
