Finding honorable coaches is a challenge these days.

All too often, an excited individual might be attracted to the hype, the promises and the flash that is presented in the promotion of a certain coach, but then find out all too late that the substance, the accountability and the experience is missing.

Consider taking the time to vet, double check and practice the due diligence before taking that step to pay someone that is not authority and does not have the ability to help you, your business or your vision.

Text over green trees that reads “There is no better way to find out the true heart, honor and professionalism of a person, than seeing how they handle themselves and others when facing a crisis, disaster or intense level of pressure.”
“There is no better way to find out the true heart, honor and professionalism of a person, than seeing how they handle themselves and others when facing a crisis, disaster or intense level of pressure.”

Discussed here are some of the elements to look for as well as what to look out and avoid.

To the legitimate and honorable coaches, keep in mind that many out there have had the bad experiences with coaches that were less than experienced. Showcase your authenticity, experience and authority in writing and in an agreement over just the marketing and hype that is used to sell. Share pieces online and off that highlight your knowledge over only marketing and promoting yourself.

Vetting

When you take the time and put in the effort to vet and double check, while at the same time, showcase your detail and professionalism, you set a better standard and a better foundation to work from. While also attracting the right type of client to coach.

Consider delivering a clear and defined statement of work, a strategic services agreement or consulting services agreement, an invoice and a non-disclosure agreement. This shows the honor and detail that protects the one you are coaching, just as you are protected as a coach.

And to those looking for a coach, have you found a series of coaches that take a very vague approach to coaching that leaves you feeling like you have gained nothing while they turn it around and blame you because you are not succeeding?

This is unfortunately all too common and is happening all too often in the coaching world.

Look for the details, to understand the responsibilities you have when being coached and what your coach is responsible for.

This creates better understanding, better protection of all parties and better results as a while.

 

“It feels like we have more coaches on the sidelines than we have players on the field.”

On the same page

When everyone is on the same page, has a clear understanding of expectations and responsibilities, the best coaching outcomes can occur. Consider stepping away from the big promises, guarantees and claims if they are not backed up on paper and stepping toward those that can highlight and prove themselves ethically, professionally and authentically.

Lastly, look past the hype and seek the substance before subscribing to a coach and their direction. This is some of the best protection for you, your business or venture or are they sharing amplified authentic opinions or are they sharing dull and soft hearsay that sounds nice?

There is no better way to find out the true heart, honor and professionalism of a person, than seeing how they handle themselves and others when facing a crisis, disaster or intense level of pressure.

The coach just for you.

In conclusion, with patience, vetting and taking the time to explore what the promises of a coach are while at the same time looking at the direct results, reviews and third party experiences others have had with that particular coach, we may be able to make better choices as a whole.

And, do consider that each coach, their style and their approach can work differently for different people. So in that understanding, trust your gut, trust your feeling and see if you can get a chance to test drive for a while before you commit to a long term plan.
