Episode 209: "Why Coaching For Farmers" w/Kelly Dobson

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks with Kelly Dobson, from LeaderShift Inc., about “Why Coaching for Farmers?”

Are you looking to maximize your farm’s performance? If so, look no further than you….the farm operator. That’s right. Canadian farms are high-tech and use the best inputs, equipment, agronomy advice, and technology; however, a majority of farms haven’t yet tapped their personal competitive advantage to achieve more with the resources they already have.

In this episode, Tracy and Kelly speak about:
  1. Why leadership for farmers?
  2. Kelly shares more about the “National Farm Leadership Program” and its goals.
  3. Tracy asks the million-dollar question, “Why coaching for farmers?” Kelly shares his thoughts, experiences, and the science behind professional leader development and coaching for farmers.
  4. Kelly and Tracy have a casual conversation about getting unstuck, greater personal happiness, knowing how to shift your behaviour to impact your life and your relationship with others, and so much more.
  5. The 2024 “National Farm Leadership Program” is about to launch. Kelly shares more information on this year’s program and encourages anyone interested to reach out before the fast-approaching application deadline ends on January 18, 2024.
  6. Kelly wraps the episode up by sharing wisdom on the power of coaching too unlock our true abilities and show up as the best version of ourselves in our lives.

Are you interested in improving your personal/family relationships, growing your farm operation, and achieving results you haven’t seen before? If so, you will not want to miss this episode.
