Good coaches come in all shapes and sizes, but here are some characteristics that most good coaches seem to share.

  1. They are excellent listeners. They’d rather ask good questions than give good advice.
  2. They are curious people. They love to dig beneath the surface to uncover a person’s dreams, values, and passions.
  3. They are self-assured and they rejoice in other people’s success.
  4. They believe in relationships and enjoy working one-on-one with people over an extended period of time.
  5. They are encouragers and they get a thrill out of helping others achieve their dreams.
  6. They have positive attitudes and they look for, affirm, and expect the best in others.
  7. They are honest and they are not afraid to challenge others when that’s the best way to help them.
  8. They are unselfish and they are willing to get out of the way so others can grow.
  9. They are respectful and they do not attempt to manipulate or control others.

A good coach is a professional who works with individual clients to help them achieve results and sustain life-changing behavior in both their personal lives and careers. Good coaches address the whole person with an emphasis on uncovering blind spots and producing right action that leads to more fulfillment, more balance, and a more enjoyable life journey.
