So, how can you tell if someone’s coachable. Well, here’s 4 ways.
1. Open and Self-aware
Most coachable people have a fair amount of self-awareness and can self-reflect. They’re willing to engage in topics that might be uncomfortable and they’re prepared to answer the question of what’s really going on here; and get to the belief and perspective that’s holding them back.
2. Open to New Perspectives
They enjoy feedback, they actually welcome feedback, they’re excited at a new way of looking at something even if initially there’s a little bit of a take back but they really enjoy the process of partnering with someone and looking for new ways to solve whatever the problem is.
3. Committed to Change
They recognize the gap between where they are and where they wanna be. And they’re prepared to take action even if they don’t know all the way there.
4. Engage in Coaching Process
And once they take that action, it’s observable, the coach and the client can both see progress and they are energized by this. That’s a fully committed person who’s engaged in the coaching process.
