Undressing The Coaching Industry:  8 Traits of Great Coaches

By April 26, 2017 No Comments

By now, it should come as little surprise that top performers in any field rely upon and follow the guidance of great coaches. From athletes to executives and entrepreneurs, the greats rely on the counsel and wisdom of coaches to elevate their game.

With that said, it pays to take a buyer-beware approach to hiring a coach. And if you identify as a coach, you owe it to those who place their trust in you to live and breathe a certain ethos that goes above and beyond just delivering “results”.

It seems like everyone is a “coach” these days. And with the proliferation of online certification programs, anyone with a few thousand bucks can almost instantly buy the title of Coach.


But there is a key and important aspect that is missing with these types of programs: they fail to teach leadership.

And while the connection of leadership to coaching is misunderstood (especially in the age of quick-and-ready coaching certification programs), the fact of the matter is in order to be a great coach, a person must be a strong leader.

Period.

But what does it take to be a great coach? And what do you need to look for when searching for a coach?

Join me for a deep-dive conversation on 8 key traits that world-class coaches share.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The difference between telling and teaching (and how great coaches know the difference)
  • How to tell a professional coach from a charlatan
  • The importance of creating and sharing the vision, and why great coaches MUST do it
  • Why coaching is more than about “how”…it’s also about who
  • The critical skill every coaching must have (and how to tell if they do)
  • Why emphasizing “peak performance” may kill your results
  • How great coaches use humility to create lasting change in their clients
  • and more…

Fly High. Fly Fast. Fly Far.
