I wanted to think about what values are important when coaching. I reflected on what makes a great coaching relationship.
I picked the below 3 values - AAA that I deeply resonate with:
Authenticity: Bring our authentic self to work to cultivate a trusting & respectful relationship with the client. If we are authentic, our client will also be comfortable bringing their whole self to us.
Acceptance: Accept the client as they are. Create a safe and open environment that is non-judgemental and 100% client-centered. Client is the driver of the car and can decide their route. Coach is the headlight showing them the road.
Action: Practice actionable coaching. Strive to help the client transform the coaching discussion into simple actions that they can hold themselves accountable to and implement to succeed.
