The Coaching Point with Dr. Richard Schnitker – Mentor Leader

In his book, “The Mentor Leader” Tony Dungy writes; The single most important factor that differentiates mentor leaders from other leaders in any setting is their outward focus on others. Because mentor leaders are committed to building value into the lives of other people, it seems natural that they would want to cast their influence as widely as possible by creating a culture of mentoring. Unfortunately, too many leaders operate from a paradigm that asks, “How will this better me or better my organization?” “How will this improve my bottom line?” “How will this improve my chances of a bonus, a raise, or a promotion?” It’s not necessarily their fault that they think this way; the paradigm of self-advancement is one that most people in our society are familiar with, and it’s the foundation on which most leadership instruction is built. So, it is important for coaches to remember that the kind of chemistry great teams have is; it’s not about me, it’s not about you, it’s about others!

Whether you’re trying to build a small business or you’re leading a sales team, finding ways to be successful in business while living a balanced life can be a challenge. I’m Dr. Richard Schnitker, the local owner of The Growth Coach of Marlboro Maryland, and my goal is to help people step back, relax and look at the big picture. I’ve always had a knack for getting into the weeds, listening to the challenges people are having, and finding ways to address their problems. The Growth Coach enables me to bring those skills, my passion for business, my training as a leader, and my resources as a Growth Coach together in a way that can benefit my clients. I always enjoyed being in leadership positions and having served in various positions from authoritative to servant leadership as well as change and transformational management. Being able to give back, by serving as a Strategic Business Coach, is one of the greatest ways I can help people find ways to meet their goals and be successful. A lifelong dream was to be a business owner and The Growth Coach has given me a solid platform of resources and support system to operate from. I’m looking forward to serving business owners, company leaders and sales professionals in my community.
