A good coach will normally work to get the best out of everyone around. In doing so the coach will be able to bring out the best qualities that ensure the empowerment features are sowed and the results reaped many fold.
When wise counsel or direction is sought, the function of a good coach is to work towards making all concerned realize their potential and possibilities that may not be apparent at the time.
Encouraging each individual to focus deeply and draw from their inborn talents allows for the possibilities of discovering qualities that were unknown and untapped.
Sometimes the coach needs to take the extra step to firmly suggest or encourage the individual to mentally “force” themselves to try something new. Imparting the mind set of “nothing ventured = nothing gained” may be the very tool that is needed to steer the individual into mustering enough courage to try.
Most people are afraid to even try because they are either convinced they can’t do what is required or they are convinced that the exercise would be futile, thus the role of a coach it to teach the individual ways to overcome these type of thought processes.
Coaches also need to be aware of the importance of understanding the character and behavioral traits of those seeking these services. As a coach understanding the vital role a character trait or style plays in a project allows the coach to either use it to the advantage of gaining the success needed or allows the coach to work towards making it understood that the said character trait or style needs to be changed.
The end goal should ideally be the success in attaining the efficient personal operating levels when participating in team work or individual project which in turn should be shown in the successful completion of any endeavor.
