How to Select a Coach

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

When it is time to select yourself a coach there are a few questions to consider that will ensure you make the best selection.  There are obviously coaches in different fields – this blog focuses on choosing a leadership executive or business coach.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I ready to commit to coaching?  This involves being prepared to be totally open and honest with your coach and being prepared to take action and make any changes agreed during the coaching relationship.
  • Do I have the courage to be open and honest in a coaching relationship, and am I committed to taking action and adopting behaviours that will make the difference?
  • Am I confident that the coach I am looking to work with has a successful track record coaching people like me in my situation?

Coaching can make a significant difference when you are ready for a fundamental shift in your leadership performance or career.  To learn more about how coaching may benefit you, visit Stepshift’s executive coaching page or return to the blog categories page.
