Spike Lee famously said: «I do not need a dream, when I have a plan»

What is Idea Coaching?

It is the amalgamation of three elements: my passion for Project Management (many thanks to Scot Berkun), Seth Godin’s Leadership Idea (I am an unabashed fan), and my naturally high level of emotional intelligence.

Early on, during my career as a project manager at a large corporate firm, I recognized that the basic principles of project management (PM) could be applied to individual ideas in order to move them from the ‘thought’ stage to the ‘action’ stage. I decided to treat each idea as a project. By applying the fundamental guidelines of PM, such as articulating a beginning and an end, developing time lines, and estimating how long it takes to make it happen, I was certain I could move an idea forward. Spike Lee famously said: «I do not need a dream, when I have a plan». While I think that we do need dreams I am a firm believer that for the dream to take shape and flourish we need to execute on a plan.

Then I read Seth Godin’s book «Tribe». I learnt that an idea can become a reality if it has a leader, a communication platform and followers. But how do we become leaders, build the right communication platform, and attract a tribe of loyal followers? It is quite simple really — we need a plan. I realized that by helping my clients create and execute a realistic plan I could help them find their inner-leader and develop viable channels for communication so that they may find and capture their tribe in an organic way.

Everyone has at least one great idea. You love your idea, and your friends also think it’s GREAT. You know that you should go for it, but something holds your back. It’s either the lack of time or resource, the thinking of not being good enough, or the assumption that it has already been done before.
At BE AN iDEA LEADER, we know that all these are just BIG FAT excuses, and after walking in your shoes, we know you can overcome them.
WE help individuals and businesses to talk less about their big idea and DO more.
Our iDEA COACHES help you create a strategy that best suits your lifestyle, so that you can finally close the gap between talking and doing! They know what it takes for you to become more action-oriented than what you really are. Like many of our clients, after completing one idea, you will become an iDEA junkie, or as we like to call our star clients — iDEA LEADERs, people who go after their big ideas, despite all the challenges, pursuing their ideas like a full-time job or family life. By learning about time management, your particular strengths and weaknesses, and by overcoming your fears, you become more productive.
So now the question is – ARE YOU READY to become an iDEA LEADER who dares to make a BIG FAT iDEA into reality?
We knew you would say yes! Here is how you can get started.

I have an Idea!

When working with individuals who would like to go after their BIG iDEA while working full-time, we observe that their biggest challenge is time management. It is all about finding the right balance between the full-time job and the new role of being an idea executer.
Pursuing your BIG iDEA can sometimes get lonely; this is where idea-coaching becomes more vital. Whether it is about helping you seek expert opinion, formulating a plan to move from your idea to action, or providing you with a sense of team, an iDEA COACH can push you to be more productive, within the framework of your professional and personal goals.
Our first step is to help you develop sound time management techniques. Our goal is to ensure that you attain your full potential as an iDEA owner, and to do this we treat your idea as a project — a project whose success we are fully invested in.

Here is an outline of the process:

FIRST we
Articulate your idea or ideas into a set of actionable goals
Develop achievable plans
Create sustainable time management that fits your lifestyle
Create a plan that allows you to execute several ideas at once
Apply risk management
THEN we provide
Accountability
24/7 ‘hand-holding’
A feeling of partnership
AND FINALLY we
Celebrate your victories!
Working together is an extraordinary journey full of joy and self-discovery. You will overcome your fears and become a risk-taker. While this is sometimes painful, the sense of accomplishment will inspire you to overcome every challenge. You will discover your ‘self’ at your very best, thus moving forward towards your goal, knowing that you are not alone, and that we are in this together. Soon you will master the state of being in constant action and you will become the powerful leader of your own BIG iDEA.
I believe that you can make it happen. Purchase the package.
