Taking The Coaching From Whence It Comes: TV & The Apprentice

By Kristine Carey & Leslie Gebhart, The Lifestyle Catalysts

One of the things we life coaches do is keep our eyes open

for coaching that comes from unusual places, and in this

case it was the final episode of the Apprentice. Certainly

television can be used to provoke intelligent dialogue about

ethics and principles. Did you see The Apprentice the night

Randall was hired and Rebecca wasn't hired? Randall took a

stand. He said, "No when directly asked by Donald Trump

whether Rebecca should be hired the same night. He was

clear. He was living within his beliefs and values. He had

a choice. As do you. We always have choices.

As life coaches we are often asked to support our clients to

make new choices. Often these represent significant changes

from the way they used to do things, and these new actions

may seem awkward or out of the blue, especially to our

loved ones. Yet, when we define our values and personal

standards and chose to make choices based upon those, our

life moves forward with much more ease. That awkward phase

lasts only a short time as we step into the new way of being

and behaving.

Try on these words as you think about the professional and

competent behavior demonstrated by Rebecca and Randall

during The Apprentice:







You have a choice and can decide to adopt some of these

words to describe how you will behave the rest of the

week"the rest of the month, or all year. You can design

your own degree of competency whether visiting a spa for

relaxation and rejuvenation or preparing to deliver a

motivating and inspiring presentation to your colleagues.

The choice is yours; it always is. You are on this earth

to add your unique piece to this puzzle called life and you

have opportunities to turn every obstacle into a chance for

greatness much as you saw Rebecca do during her time on The


Randall was put on the spot, took a stand, made a decision.

It's proven to be a controversial one and probably

responsible for propelling Rebecca into a very desirable

position she wouldn't otherwise have had if Randall's answer

been "Yes." So, bear this in mind when you get a "no from

one of your colleagues or family members. It could be a

"yes in disguise and the start of a fantastic new


Questions to ponder:

"What no can give that is actually a yes?

"Are you willing to ask for support to making a change?

"Do you have something you know you've been wanting to do, yet keep postponing?

"Are you aware that there is a contribution that only you can make?

As coaches, one of our favorite reminders is the following

sentence: "The best way to get somewhere is to let yourself

go." It's time. It's the New Year. You can go. With

support from a coach or this article or your own inner

courage, you, too, can take a stand and design the life of

your dreams. Yes you can!
