  • Establishing Trust & Rapport - "Create a safe and supportive environment while holding the client in "unconditional positive regard".

  • Coaching Presence - "The coach is fully present and flexible with the client."

  • Active & Reflective Listening - "Learn to focus completely on what the client is saying and is not saying listening without an agenda."

  • Powerful Questioning - "The ability to ask clear and direct questions that lead to new insight and move the client forward."

  • Direct Communication - "The coach shares their thoughts, intuition, perspectives and feedback without judgment, attachment or criticism paying more attention to how they say it than what is said." 

  • Creating Awareness"The coach invites the client to exploration and resists the temptation to "fix" the problem or the client."

  • Designing Actions - "The coach and client design actions that fit the client's goals, learning style, and pace of wanted or necessary movement."

  • Planning and Goal Setting - "The coach works with the client to clarify and develop (SMART) goals that achieve more than just the presenting concerns of the client."

  • Managing Progress and Positive Accountability - "The coach trusts the client to be accountable to themselves and calls the client to account (or discussion) if agreed upon forward movement does not occur."
