In this podcast, you’re going to learn how to be bad. I don’t mean Mad Max lone-wanderer badass bad. I mean how to be a bad client bad–that is, how to be uncoachable bad.

You see, hiring a coach isn’t just a one-and-done transaction that gets you to your goal. If you want results, you still have to do the work. You have to be willing to learn, put in the time, and reach your goals with the help of a guiding hand. 

A coach is there to make a plan and guide you, but it’s a team effort. And there are many ways to mess up that client-coach relationship.

Someone who knows all about good clients and bad alike is Cody McBroom, and this subject of how to be uncoachable is the topic of this podcast.

Cody is a repeat-guest on my show, but in case you’re not familiar with him, he’s the CEO and founder of the Tailored Coaching Method, a lifestyle training and nutrition coaching company (that also coaches how to coach), and host of the Tailored Life podcast. 

In this episode, we chat about . . .

  • The various ways people sabotage their results as a client, including having the wrong expectations and thinking they already know everything
  • Why it’s important to not make unfair comparisons (why you have to compare the whole picture)
  • Overthinking & paralysis by analysis (and the difference between wanting to know “why” and challenging a coach)
  • Pricing and having “skin in the game”
  • The necessity of being willing to take advice
  • And more . . .

So if you want to learn the wrong way to get coached, and how you can actually get better results as a client, this podcast is worth a listen!
