How do you feel about the people who do the same thing you do? Your attitude is critical!
When I think of other coaches, I don’t think of them as competitors, I think the world needs good coaches.
There is plenty of work for everyone and the greater need is to help as many people as possible to achieve their dreams. Your attitude about your vocation is critical. In my view, there are plenty of clients for everyone. It’s more important to view others as colleagues than competition.
I also strongly believe you have to be a good match with your style and personality, therefore a client who is a good fit for me, may not be for some of my colleagues and vice versa. So the more coaches, the better!!
I am active in coaching communities that support one another. It makes me a better coach.
