Maverick noun mav·er·ick | \ ˈmav-rik , ˈma-və-\
Definition of maverick (Entry 1 of 2)
1: an unbranded range animal especially : a motherless calf
2: an independent individual who does not go along with a group or party (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
The most successful athletes in the world have a coach. As a matter of fact they may have multiple coaches. A good coach can see things you cannot see that are inhibiting you from reaching your potential. A great coach understands not just what you do, but the psychology behind who you are and how to get you in a position to be the most effective.
Why does coaching work? Because while you are in the middle of the forest trying to navigate your way around, a really good coach can take an overhead view and more quickly help you see where to go.
Do you believe you are unique? Have people told you that you were talented and not like anyone else? Do you have a renegade side to you where you “don’t always play well with others”? Me too. And this is why I only coach those people who know they are different and want to do what they do in way that no one else can do it. That’s why I Coach Mavericks.
Let's Start Coaching!
Why as a maverick do I need a coach?
“I’ve seen that phenomenally successful people believe they can learn something from everybody. I call them ‘mavericks with mentors.’ Richard Branson, for instance, is a total maverick but he surrounds himself with incredibly successful, smart people and he listens to them.”
Wait a second? If I am a maverick, why would I need a coach? One of the biggest drawbacks about being a maverick is that typically you have so many ideas you can often get stuck in understanding which one to pursue. Hence, a maverick coach can help you identify which ideas best align with your talents, personality, and passion.
Another reason why a Maverick needs a coach is because we need to be pointed in the right direction so that we can unleash our talents, and personality and passion to the right people who are ready to join us in our quest to make a positive impact on the world.
Finally a maverick needs a coach to help set the right boundaries where you know where you are gong without feeling closed in. In another works, putting up the electric fence, but
putting it up far enough away that you don’t see it.
Let me leave you with this
“I personally believe mavericks are people who write their own rulebook.
They are the ones who act first and talk later. They are fiercely independent thinkers who know how to fight the lizard brain (to use Seth Godin’s term). I don’t believe many are born, rather they are products of an environment, or their experiences.
They are usually the people that find the accepted norm does not meet their requirements and have the self-confidence, appetite, independence, degree of self reliance and sufficient desire to carve out their own niche in life.
I believe a maverick thinker can take a new idea, champion it, and push it beyond the ability of a normal person to do so. I also believe the best mavericks can build a team, can motivate with their vision, their passion, and can pull together others to accomplish great things. A wise maverick knows that they need others to give full form to their views and can gather these necessary contributors around them.
Mavericks, in my experience, fall into various categories – a/ the totally off-the-wall, uncontrollable genius who won’t listen to anyone; b/ the person who thinks that they have the ONLY solution to a challenge but prepared to consider others’ views on how to conquer the world &, finally, the person who thinks laterally to overcome problems considered to be irresolvable. I like in particular the third category.
The upside is that mavericks, because of their different outlook on life, often sees opportunities and solutions that others cannot. But the downside is that often, because in life there is always some degree of luck in success (i.e. being in the right place at the right time), mavericks that fail are often ridiculed for their unorthodox approach. However when they succeed they are acclaimed for their inspiration. It is indeed a fine line they walk in life.”
