A few handy hints for the journey

This is an archived blog post from Green Alder Coaching

I am a fact-finding warrior, on a  frenzy to interview people who work as coaches or mentors! So far, I have spoken with ten lovely people who have provided me with a rich patchwork of interesting information. This has bolstered my courage to continue the journey…Stay strong!! Besides advice about their specific roles, I have picked up a few nuggets of ‘handy hints’ to be a more effective coach.I thought I might share them with you today:

  1.  Be authentically yourself.

  2. Communication skills are more important than your experience.

  3. Be non-directive in your approach – the client is the expert.

  4. Be mindful while coaching.

  5. Be credible and visible.

  6. Don’t force your services and skills upon people, trust the universe will provide if you maintain a positive focus and outlook.

  7. Volunteer your services and get involved with community projects.

  8. Concentrate on evidence-based courses.

  9. Perhaps learn teaching and human resource skills.

  10. Network within a women’s business support group to build confidence and gain valuable business skills.

  11. Think about the triple bottom line in business.

  12. Write a blog 🙂
