One Thing: Day 340: The Bad Cop

Day 340: The Bad Cop

Yesterday I gave you a little inspiration…

Tom Brady is glad he didn’t quit after he was cut, then 7th string, then had 198 players drafted before him, then held a clipboard for Drew Bledsoe…

Then Brady became THE GOAT twenty years later?!?

Maybe you’re the next GREAT local business coach in your area…

But you’re at the beginning of your journey and what matters is your sticktoitness. 


When they said they wanted things to return to normal…

They didn’t necessarily mean they wanted Tom Brady to win the Super Bowl again.



‘The Bad Cop’

Here’s something I’ve learned after years in business…

Many staff…

Many motivational, rah rah, type situations.

*My goal was and is to bring out the BEST in them*

Here It Is:

If you make ‘the goal’ the bad cop… you no longer need to be the bad cop.

Use hockey as an example…

When I needed to staple a guy to the bench for the last 2 minutes of the game…

The bad cop is that we just need to win the game so our best defensive guys will be used.

They were seldom happy… but also seldom a dispute.

‘Winning the game’ became the ‘bad cop’.

When you and your high-end clients are working with staff…

‘I just need you to make a few more calls so we can achieve the goal of XXX revenue this month… we’re almost there so let’s all keep going and accomplish our goal.’

Bottom line… help your client make the goal the Bad Cop and watch what happens.

You’re welcome.

You heard it here first.

Obsessed with your business coaching success,

Karl Bryan aka King Karl

PS. Now that we can’t shake hands or come near each other…. Finger guns are coming back and I’m pretty psyched about that.

PPS. Marriages break up from lack of money… over lack of love X 100.

Business failures lead to destruction, addiction, depression, anxiety, suicides, and unfortunately, far more.

As good business coaches we save marriages, save families, save kids from self-destruction… we save lives!

A true life of purpose.

PPPS. If you’re looking for a proven system to follow for your coaching…. I created business coaching software and high-end step by step training to support it…

It’ll teach you ‘How to find any small business owner $100,000 in 45 minutes without them spending an extra dollar on marketing or advertising.’

Imagine finding your annual $12,000 to $50,000 coaching fees BEFORE you started coaching your new clients?!  And a proven coaching system created for you to follow with your new coaching client.
