Life Coach, Business Coach, Financial Coach – there are so many coaches out there. How do you know if you have a “good one?” How do you know if YOU are cut out to be a “good coach?”
First – “Follow the money.”
You hear that all of the time. It could be reference to some alleged crime that the police are investigating. Or, it could be career advice you are receiving from someone. In this case, the advice you are being given is to have you focus on how much money you can make.
But is money the most important thing in choosing a career?
Money should be “a consideration.” But NOT the most important thing!
For example, let’s look at two very good friends who both decide they want to be “Life Coaches.” This is very popular, up and coming career choice for people to make today. There is a lot of upside potential in this field. But is it “right for you?”
Both friends attend the same training and launch their business at the same time.
But person #1 has so many clients and potential clients, there is a waiting list of people wanting to work with this coach.
Person #2 can barely find anyone that wants to help at all.
Why is that?
Well, it is probably the personality of the first person when it comes to relating with other people. The motivation behind the business to begin with. The ability to listen. The ability to communicate effectively. The ability to show exhibit compassion and understanding.
Although both people “care,” person #1 is demonstrating it while person #2 is going through the motions. And yes, the clients can tell.
So, what are some of the common characteristics that many Life Coaches exhibit?
Over the next few days, I will cover 12 different things to look at and evaluate (whether you are hiring a coach or YOU are looking to become a better coach).
