Qualities: a good life coach
Wednesday, November 22, 2006
If you advise people, you may have to take responsibility or blame if something goes wrong, and this can seriously damage the relationship. Let me explain this with an example, if a colleague comes to you with a problem, you will help and guide them to find the solution themselves. You will discuss and explore various choices available to them. You may give them examples how people solved similar problems, which would help your colleague to find a solution to their problem. When you are using coaching you won’t tell the answer even if you know it. When you help your colleague to find the solution without imposing your opinion on them, they will highly appreciate it. It will help you to forge a positive relationship.
You can apply this simple principle at home, office, or anywhere. Let me repeat it, you won’t advise people, you will guide them to find their own solution. You will not impose your opinion on others. That’s the task of a good life coach.
When you apply this principle in your life, you will be able to improve your relationship with others. You will be able to communicate effectively, and gain people’s trust and respect. When people propose their own course of action, they respond and act better, and their effectiveness increases.
