    • USHNISH CHATTOPADHYAY

      Excellent Sidz. It was so crisp and insightful. Congruence was explained in the best possible way. Clarity, commitment and curriculum were superbly explained. Content and presentation style was a little difficult to equate. However, Care and conversion were pure eye openers… for over-smarts and for emotionals. Courage was an important part for a coach. And in culture I guess you explained the importance of building a brand.

    • Pankhuri Omar

      THe 10 Cs to stand out of the crowd….. we don’t just need to understand and learn them but to also implement them to become a magnetic personality. Let’s dive in!

      1) Congruence- When our thoughts, words and actions align, we become a magnetic personality for others and attract the right kind of people in our life. Unlearn to manipulate and learn to be true to yourself and others so that you don’t need to remember what you said to whom as the answer would be the same for all!

      2) Clarity- Clarity comes when we are having a birds eye view on our vision and can track the steps backwards by understanding ourselves first on how can we make the journey simple for those who will learn from us! THen we become clear with our journey of creation of courses, curriculum and other content. That’s when we are able to deliver value in a short span of time without confusing people

      3) Commitment- If we are not committed in serving others in the most effective way and only focus on making money and looking at people as sales and numbers, we might not justify our mission as people can see through our intentions. Say NO to shortcuts as there is no substitute to hard work!

      4) Curriculum- Visualization of the concepts, ideas and solutions in a structured manner with infographic models in form of figures, charts, or diagrams that improves the retention power greatly effects course deliverability and results for the students. Sidz has explained this brilliantly in his Silver Membership! Must learn if you are a coach!

      5) Content- Our presentation style of delivering the content whether we use a mind map, or a simple ppt or anything that’s unique and easy to grasp knowledge. No ranting or beating around the bush.

      6) Care- Affection for students and care for people universally. We need to work on a deeper level so that people genuinely feel it while listening to you.

      7) Conversion- We need to be damn good. Implementing and practicing many times while being ok with the rejections. If there are les conversions, be ok with it and continue working on yourself. Not everybody is going to buy your product.

      8) Courage- With courage comes strength to stand for something thats bigger than you and voice out something that you truly believe in. Getting out of the sheep mentality of what other people think success is and carving your own niche which we truly believe in and which has worked for us. It needs courage to showcase it to the world and stand by it, even when people don’t agree with you on that point. It’s ok to be disliked by few people.

      9) Culture- Sidz Tribe Building Formula teaches us the mutual respect and support we need to have in order to stand out from the rest of the crowd. Having a code of honour, creating healthy challenges, encouraging growth mindsets within our own community

      10) Charity- Create a community of givers. It’s important for people to imbibe that thought in their minds that in order to give, you need to earn and create more money for yourself. And that’s how you give!

      All these are must have Cs to become a magnet and attract the right audience while having that X factor in you!

      THanks Sidz… another knowledge bomb here!

      The X Factor components of digital coaching as you mentioned; are congruence, clarity, commitment, curriculum, content, care, conversions, courage, culture, and charity. These each area are equally important and are mental models that represent your habits as a coach. Long back, I read a book, “the Common Denominator of Success”. It starts with the Why of what you are doing; and then it moves on to systems to make it happen: your thoughts, efforts, and energy need to focus on the systems to achieve goals, not the goals themselves. The systems should be designed for success. In every area, we need to look at why successful people are doing something that commoners don’t like doing. This gives me the precise idea to create mental models for these areas of my life. Gratitude Sidz, for sharing this! With You Always.
