What I Didn’t Know was Killing Me

My first experience being coached was in 2005. I hit the jackpot when Dr. Jack Groppel became my coach. He’s an internationally recognized authority and pioneer in the science of human performance. 🙌🏾 Recently inducted into the U.S. Pro Tennis Hall of Fame for literally changing how the game is played both on and off the court. Then, he chose to coach my 26 year old youth pastor self!

I was excited about coaching because I felt like I was killing it in life, but I wanted to be and do better. Then, I took his full engagement assessment and was MORTIFIED. I scored solidly in the “disengaged” range. 😱 I had so much work to do!

Physically, I was AWFUL. Emotionally, I had massive room for improvement, especially in conflict. Mentally, I wasn’t focused. I was on the brink of “serious disengagement” in my energy recovery.

I believed because spiritually I was aligned and strong that it covered all those other dimensions. WRONG.

I had major blindspots. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I was stuck in unhealthy patterns I didn’t even realize. I was working really hard, but not smart. Stress was killing me. Most importantly, I was on the pathway to self-destruction if I didn’t make significant changes. 

Coaching with Jack became a trajectory shift for the rest of my life. If it wasn’t for coaching with Jack, I’m confident I would’ve burned out and probably destroyed my marriage, not to mention missed out on truly cultivating my fullest potential, learning to live with ease.

Fast forward, Jack and I have remained friends and he continues to coach me as a CEO. When I was thinking about launching Ezer + Co. he was on my short-list to consult with. Then in 2020, along with a team of global experts, he worked tirelessly with me during the summer of the pandemic to help me create our proprietary, first-class Wholeness Assessment, which was modeled after his assessment and now is a powerful FREE Quiz.

That first coaching experience convinced me that the behavioral science of coaching is the #1 way to become our whole self – break through barriers, shift mindsets, create healthier habits, engage our lives better, and connect more deeply with ourselves and others.

Eighteen years after Jack first coached me, he remains a trusted guide in my life and leadership. (#goals for me with you!)

If all that isn’t beautiful enough, this is what he thinks about me… 🥰

Does my story may sound like yours? You want to be and do better, but you’re not quite sure what that looks like. You’ve got blind spots. You don’t know what you don’t know. You’re stuck or settling or living in the status quo. Burnout could be in your future if you don’t make changes.
