Selecting a coach is a very personal and and unique experience. A combination of competence, chemistry, trust and specialities help prospective clients choose the best match for their needs.
Below are items to consider as you prepare to select a coach.
Unless you are ready to work hard, are open and committed to making specific changes, coaching may be of little to no benefit. It doesn’t mean coaching is not the solution, it just may not be the solution for you now. Timing is everything and feeling motivated and willing to devote time to work towards creating change for yourself are key.
While it is not necessary to be certified, coaches who are certified through The International Coach Federation receive very specific and intense training on various processes and techniques. For more information visit www.coachfederation.com.
