Do you practice uplifting your loved ones simply because you love them? Before you answer that, consider this:
Performance-based family relationships can cause serious long-term damage.
I have the distinct privilege of coaching Jamie Slingerland the Founder and President of J & R Photo. Jamie is an incredible businessman as well as an awesome dad, husband and faithful friend to many.
The conventional methods of a client/coach interaction are totally obsolete when it comes to coaching Jamie. We tried numerous times to talk over the phone, meet at Pinewood Social, a trendy local restaurant and even video conference. Nothing seemed to hold Jamie’s attention like the great outdoors. These past 6 months have been an absolute blast. I will have to admit, it's been very productive. Recently, we've held our coaching sessions on Old Hickory Lake, Golf Club of Tennessee, Centennial Park, next door to the Parthenon, and various other outdoor venues. I’ll just have to be totally honest here; I love getting paid to visit each and every one of these places. But let me also speak up and say that these activities engage Jamie in a way that the traditional methods failed.
