Vital Skills of the great BUSINESS Coach

People have asked me many times "what should a good Coach be able to do"? A great question-What the range and repertoire of the expert Coach should be.....

I believe a great Coach should be able to do the following:

  1. Help you get clear about what's important to you without giving advise, telling or instructing. (If they're professionally trained this is what they naturally do)
  2. Be able to understand your Business world and be able to understand it based on the above (Done a real job, understands how a Corporate environment really works)
  3. If you agree they should be able to offer some 1 to 1 support by way of training in new skills and be able to help you practice these skills in a safe environment.

This is what my Clients need from me.............Is this what you do as Coaches and as Coachees is this what you pay for and get?
