When someone decides to play Who am I? he or she has opened wider the door to his or her strongest desires. Someone who decides to play Who am I? has actually agreed to look more closely at what he or she wants to do, what he or she wants to have or aspires to be.
Those are precisely the sort of questions that can guide any group that has sought help from a coach. Someone who has been challenged with the question “Who am I?” is sure to look more closely at what he or she can do. Such an individual has reason to better examine his or her potential.
A good coach helps each person under that coach to tap-into his or her full potential. In order to accomplish that feat, a coach must first make sure that each person under that coach has discovered the powers latent in his or her potential. Each person under a coach benefits from asking, “Who am I?”
Too often people come to feel as though they have no potential. A child might, for example, lack a talent that the parents had hoped to find in that child. The child might have a latent talent, one unnoticed by the parents. Because the child has not been encouraged to further his or her hidden talent, that child develops an ill-founded sense of worthlessness.
Those are the sort of feelings that a coach must seek to banish from the hearts and minds of those who depend on that coach. Such feelings of worthlessness hamper the ability of any individual to discover his or her full potential.
A coach seldom has time to sit-back and watch while others play games (unless that game is part of a scrimmage). That fact underscores why a coach should encourage those who might want to play Who am I?
When someone takes part in a game of “Who am I?” he or she tends to leave behind many cares and worries. One usually feels less-stressed when playing a game. A coach does not want those who depend on that coach to feel stressed. Stress stymies the discovery of potential.
A good coach wants each person under him or her to “check-out” what bits of knowledge held by that same person might be of use to the “team” that’s guided by the coach. The coach must encourage those under him or her to look into both their minds and their hearts. Some seeds of knowledge can start to sprout in the heart.
The coach must understand the ability of the mind to nourish what might lay in the heart of anyone who is working with that same coach. The nourishment of the heart can encourage the emergence of hidden knowledge. That nourishment can lead to the flourishing of latent potential.
As mentioned above, a coach generally seeks to encourage the discovery of latent potential. A coach must work to overcome any inclinations by others to question their own worth. A coach must help others to be “all that they can be.” That is why a coach should encourage those who might want to play Who am I?
