International Coach Week 2014
Thanks, Coach… Campaign
Coach Dave here with you.
In honor of International Coach Week 2014 I have a suggestion for you.
Send a note of thanks to the great coaches you have had in your life!
Whether they were a formal coach or an informal coach…
Whether they were a life coach, an athletic coach or a music coach…
Send a note of gratitude.
It can be a simple note of thanks or you can share some specifics about the value they added to your life.
Let them know.
SHARE: If you want to share a public thanks to your coach, please share it here in the comments area below this post.
I will LOVE to read it.
Never underestimate the value of external validation!
I have been a professional life coach for 17+ years. It still just lights up my day when a get a note of thanks from one of my players present or past.
While I certainly know the importance of tuning into our value from within, we are collaborative, connected creatures and getting some feedback from the outside world that what we do matters, is vital to our feeling of well being.
Let your coaches know that they made a difference in your world. It could be just the pick-me-up they need right now. Or at the very least it will give them a BIG smile.
Thinking of Thomas
Special Note: If you want to leave a Thanks, Coach note for Thomas you can do it here!
Life is a canvas. Coaching is art. Paint!
Serving on the coaching staff at Seton Hall Men’s soccer with you for 15 years is one of the highlights of my life. I have been on a strange quest since the age of 12 to become a capable soccer player. I learned so much about the game I love just by being in your world. And I appreciate that you took the time to notice my game as a player while together we were coaching the guys on our team. I did get better! slowly, but I did get better.

To Dave Miller (www.businessgrowthnow.com):
Thanks for all of your help and friendship over the years. I can honestly say that without your counsel and coaching, I would have folded up my tent within the first year. Instead, I have a successful 6 figure coaching practice I can be proud of, sustained over 11 years.
To Harriett Simon-Salinger: Thanks for being my first coach and for teaching me how to trust that I didn’t need to be an expert in an area to coach someone who is!
thank you Coop!!!! …. and therein lives the truth of what coaching is :-))))
Yeah Harriett!! So sweet to have you here for a visit! You are a treasure of the coaching profession.
Thanks cool Coop!
To Barbara Mark,
Thank you for coaching me out of a very rough patch and helping me deal with a tough partnership issue! Your support means the world to me!
Thank you for sharing all of your deep wisdom, experience and insight. You have been an inspiration and a mentor to so many of us!
Shout Out to Coach Terry Woods- my buddy coach for two years! She’s helped me see the light and adjust the intensity. She’s asked the right questions and listened for the truth. She’s helped me change for the better.
Terry Woods- (a player at CV), you will help many others magnify their glow. Go get ’em!
Let it shine, Laurie
That’s awesome Laurie. Thanks for jumping into our campaign.
Michael Charest was my first Coach around 15 years ago. He changed my life and has continued to do so over the years. Without Michael’s business savvy I wouldn’t have the successful business I have today.
Way to go Michael, Anthony, Dreamcoach, Charest!
Hey Dawn! Thanks for sharing and bringing Michael into the mix. He is truly an icon in our field.
To Jay Edgar, you coached with me for 10 years and made a huge difference in my life. You walk the talk and practice what you teach, you love unconditionally, create great safety and make vulnerability possible. I will forever be grateful for the many gifts of our coaching sessions!

Coach Dave, thank you so much for the time and guidance you have given this newbie! You have an extraordinary gift. Thank you Deanna for signing me up and guiding me as I have gone along, ‘Holy Cow’! Thanks to Ryan and Molly who helped me get a handle on how to publicize myself but mostly for validating my writing and business skills! Thanks to all of my instructor Coaches, Margot, Trudy, Rick, Christina, and Pamela for teaching me coaching methods and skills which have also contributed to my personal growth. Thanks to my dyad partners for your ongoing support. When I started at Coachville I had a business idea, now I have actual skills and a business identity as well as a paying client with another on the way and I am facilitating a community weight loss program support group. Not bad for a few months of play!!
Thank you, Dave for everything! It’s truly an honor to know you as a friend and to also have the opportunity to be coached by one of the best in the industry. You truly are a master at what you do but more than that…you are such a genuine person who demonstrates the utmost caring in all that you do. You have the perfect combination of wisdom, intelligence and a heart of gold! Keep up the good work…the world needs more people like you.
Love & blessings,
Although I am grateful for the entire Coachville Community, I send a HUGE thanks and a deep-felt appreciation for the following coaches…
Thanks to you Coach Dave!
Its been a few years since we connected directly, but I still feel connected and know that I am only an email/phone call away from your great personal coaching.
You are certainly one of the coaches that made an impact in my life. I will always recall the Coaching Skills training session in Dallas and your subsequent convention; where, at both, I benefited from your inspired leadership, coaching and friendship. Additionally, I met John Allen Mollenhauer and Howard Stone, both of whom added new valued relationships, coaching and friendships to my life.
You are a great guy, Dave. I am better because of your ideas, energy and insistence on being the best in life for sport, business, and personal fulfillment.
Thanks for sharing your gifts and talent.
Best Regards, Paul
Thanks Paul! Very inspiring to know that you are still in the game!!!
