3 Tips To Help Creative Introverts Become Confident Coaches

Hi there, do you have a wealth of creative experience and a calling to coach others?

Think you’re too ‘shy’ or too much of an ‘introvert’ to teach but keep being asked to speak up and share your insight? No worries. You don’t need to be an outgoing or arrogant person to be an efficient coach.

In today’s video, I share 3 tips to help you get out of your own way and step forward into a bright and purposeful career (or part-time business) as a creative coach – without losing the essence of your personality or becoming an arrogant dweeb.

Take a deep breath – you can do this! If I can, you can too. As someone who once ‘couldn’t’ cross a floor alone, a lot of speaking can be challenging for me sometimes but I’ve been coaching (and enjoying it) for 15+ years. Remember, care is at the core of service.

We’re not called to be timid, so let’s grow!

 

Care is at the core of COACHING

Do you get regular texts or calls for your insight or creative direction?

Have a house of info to share on a particular topic that can equip others to navigate your industry well?

Compelled to ‘give back’ and ‘pay it forward, but a bit nervous about the process?

3 Things to consider:

  1. What You Know / What You’ve Learned
  2. How That Can Help Others
  3. Whom Your Service Can Equip

 

If coaching in person or online isn’t your cup o’ tea, but you’re still interested in sharing knowledge while earning income through another avenue, producing a product might suit you better in this season. That can look like a:

  • book
  • online course
  • blog
  • podcast
  • YouTube channel
  • speaking opportunity

No matter how quiet a person you are, or how necessary low-volume moments are for your creative progress, serving others by shining a light on their gifts while watching them grow with joy and fine-tuned skills, is a wonderful experience.
