How to Choose a Coach – 4 Steps to Selecting the Right Coach For You

By Shannon E Cook 

Many people are learning about the tremendous benefits of coaching. Unlike therapy, coaching focuses on looking toward the future and accomplishing goals, and asking “how” rather than examining the past and looking at “why?” Coaching is also different from consulting in that the wisdom to move forward is unlocked from within the client, rather than a consultant telling the client what to do.

Each of these methods of improving people’s lives and productivity has its place and application, and many people engage in more than one of these personal and professional development processes. So how do you choose a coach? Here are 4 steps to selecting the right coach for you:

  1. Get referrals and information on the coach. Ask if friends or family have used a coach, and what their results have been. Read information and articles from coaches and get a sense of what philosophies and issues are important to him or her, and determine how that matches up with the issues you’d like to focus upon.
  2. Engage prospective coaches in a sample session. Coaching is often delivered over the phone, which makes the process convenient and easy. Many coaches will offer you a complimentary sample session to determine whether the coaching relationship will be a good fit for both of you. Do you have greater clarity at the end of a session? Some strategies for accomplishing the next step in your goal?
  3. Find out if the coach has had any formal training or accreditation. Coaching is a distinct technique, and not all people who call themselves “coaches” use the model widely recognized by most certified or trained coaches. Life and personal coaching is not yet regulated, so be aware of this.
  4. Choose a person with whom you have a positive rapport. This is a co-creative relationship and it is important that you feel comfortable and at ease with this person and his or her style of coaching. Do you prefer to be challenged? Do you like lots of endorsement and affirmation? Do you like a softer, calmer approach, or a more energetic and driven mode? There are as many coaching styles as there are people coaching, so choose the person who seems the best fit for you.

Are you interested in addressing your life challenges from a holistic standpoint, assessing the physical, emotional, and relationship components?
