The Episode: The Importance of Building Positive Relationships with Colleagues
You simply cannot make it in the fitness coaching world without some strong relationships. Most work that you will get in this space will be through personal connections and the people you meet on your journey. Clients will naturally gravitate towards coaches who they know, like and trust, and treating people well and respectfully can go a long way in fostering these feelings.

“People don’t change, people might pretend that they change, but history repeats itself.” — Jonathan Goodman
The Three Big Payoffs
When we give attention to the relationships in our lives, there is an array of benefits we can accrue. Three major ones are the learning that can occur through these relationships, the interesting networks of people that can be accessed, and of course, getting hired and finding more work. When we learn how to teach and meet others where they are, knowledge is shared and this becomes immediately valuable to any client.
The Karma of Your Actions
We all have different experiences and expertise, so it is a matter of creating the best way to offer what you have. If you treat people badly, it will be noticed and remembered and the same goes for respectful and considerate behavior. Putting in the work with your colleagues, acquaintances and, ultimately, future clients will ensure that there are rewards to be reaped in the future.
