Discovering your voice is not always easy, but when you do, it feels like it was always there. In this episode, you will learn excellent lessons from Steve Chandler – Public Speaker, Author, Business Consultant, and Coach. Steve talks about how he was able to ignite inner creativity throughout the years - enough to write 30 books, and how he prefers to share too much with clients rather than omitting too much.
“I’d rather risk sharing a little too much than walk away later wondering if I had shared that, would I have made a real connection.” – Steve Chandler
Ajit and Steve also talk about the easiest way to deal with negative feedback and criticism, how to leave ego aside in order to respect the creator inside of you and in what way coaches need to work in order to make the transition from a traditional job to entrepreneurship. Being a coach himself, Steve advises that if you want to inspire trust, you should neither hide personal struggles nor seek being perfect.
“The greatest thing a coach does is mix failure and normal.” – Steve Chandler
