The Following is a case study of how Coaching has transformed someones life. The names have been changed for privacy:
Focus Call Communication
55 age in biz 21 years
Cindy- cancer survivor BLUE/ ORANGE
Bob- heart by-pass GREEN
Did $350- goal $400 in 2006
Has an assistant, Cheryl 40hrs. + is licensed GOLD/ 2years
1) Jan. 3-06 9:30 a.m. SET THE STAGE
The following are the discoveries made on the first call:
Organization of systems
Implement consistent past client communication strategy
Need time off
*Knowing that time management was the first step we needed to take. I had Judy start to work on her Ideal Work Week
2) Jan.-20-06 8:30 a.m. Worked on Ideal Week
Keeping Cindy on Time Management:
Ideal Work Day (no calls in evening)-(is how you want your life to look)-(Personal time off)
Ask how time went with family
3) Feb.-3-06 8:30 a.m.
Called and She cancelled, this is the second time this happened.
Cindy is still being Reactive to everything around her.
4) Feb.-3-10-06 8:30 a.m.
Discovering what Cindy would love to do if she had half a day off:
Loves trees / taking picture of trees
Take 4 hrs. Off Thursday
Found where her strength is and best ROI
Niche market is University
5) Feb-27-06 8:30 a.m.
Still kept on her about getting time off
Take 4hrs of Thursday (didn’t do)
Asked her to send me a picture of a tree
Cindy’s best strength is being in front of people
6) March-13-06 8:30 a.m.
This is where the real movement started. I believe it was little changes, with forward movement that created this.
Example: 1) Day off, enjoying a passion of taking pictures of trees.
2) Completing a task (Ideal Work Week)
3) Contacting her winning team and having success.
Ideal Work Day (done)

Talked with Cindy about the Following:
“Cindy asked, any advice for convincing people to pay a higher commission and list with you, I’ve tried just about everything I know. It seems that only money talks”. Shared with her that she was too connected to the out come and let go.
Raised Goals/ $500.000

Why did you originally get in to Coaching?
No need to answer it now, put some thought to it, and we'll talk about it than.
Testimony Letter from Cindy
I have been with the RRI program since the beginning of this year.
It has been an uplifting experience.
The greatest difference for me is after all these years in my business I have learned how to manage my time in order to have a life for myself.
The new tactics I have learned in dealing with my clients has been fantastic in speeding up the process when listing properties.
I would strongly recommend this program. I believe there isn't a person, no matter how well they are doing in their business or how long they have been in the business that could not benefit in some respect from this program.
I would also like to say that my coach Paul Gruber is terrific, easy to talk with, and extremely knowledgeable.

The Following are some examples of the letters I’d get. I wouldn’t allow too much time be wasted on the stories, though wasn’t totally cold to her feelings:
I'm sorry I have to cancel our next call. We are extending our time off until the end of August due to sickness in Bob's family. Since we came back from New York we are running with his parents, his Dad still in the hospital. Things are not good. Sorry for any inconvenience. Let me know when our first meeting in August can be arranged.
Thanks so much
Well, where shall I begin? I'm not going to go into any detail regarding our lives this year. I am going to say this has been one of the worst years of our lives on a personal note. Things have not improved since our last call. Actually there are more added problems all to do with family. In spite of that we have had a tremendous year in real estate. As you can see we have not had a large number of listings but we have sold homes at considerably high prices which has given us a great income this year. Have we worked as hard as last year? Yes but only because of the unbelievable problems in our personal life. Every free minute we have has been spent on running, doing, fixing and dealing with family matters. We have listened to the taped and are ready to go whenever we get a break. We want you to know this has absolutely nothing to do with you. You have been terrific and we will try to get moving in the right direction as soon as we possibly can. I look forward to our call and I do hope you understand our situation. Paul if you could call the office number at 8:05 so the staff will be there to put you through to my office. Thanks Paul.
