What are the “fundamental” characteristics of a coach?
Embracing the question and . . .
Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be.
Fundamentally, all things have their source and roots in Energy!
Without Energy, there is no potential life or aliveness, but only lifelessness!
Every human has four endowments – self-awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.
While Energy is foundational, only with Awareness might Energy be channeled towards honorable or noble ends!
Without Awareness, there can be no actualization of potential Energy!
While Energy and Awareness are quintessential, only with humble but reasonable Confidence is it channeled towards honorable or noble ends!
Without humble but reasonable Confidence, there is no potential realization (or making anything real)!
One bridges the chasm from #2 to #3 with “Critical Thinking & Deliberate Practice powered by Insatiable Curiosity at all Levels of Abstraction” — not Arrogance (a lack of appreciation of context)!
Only in a Partnership does Energy, Awareness, and Confidence manifest (through Love)!
Without Partnership, there is no shared intent (even when is seemingly honorable or noble ends — we’re all connected)!
And only by fostering Momentum does Coaching (and a Coach) manifest impact (execution and results)!
Without Momentum, there is no actual realization (or making anything real — navigating reality)!
What are the “fundamental” characteristics of a coach? Energy, Awareness, Confidence, Partnership, and Momentum!
