In Part II of our 3 part series, I relate a simple business adage to sports. In business, it is said that if you take the five people who are your primary business advisers, add up what they make and divide by 5, that is probably what you are making. Coaching and leadership are similar. Figure out the five most influential coaching mentors you have, and average out their level of success. Chances are, that is where you are headed. If that is not your aim, then get new friends!

Please leave me some comments, and let me know if you agree or disagree with this post. Will be looking for new mentors in the coaching world?
