Preconditions for Successful Coaching
I believe that coaching is a tool that helps to facilitate the learning progress of certain practices or habits. It does not produce a change on its own. It depends a lot on the WILL of the one being coached.
I have also seen that there is a greater impact when the coach has a certain degree of INFLUENCE, is more ADMIRED and / or is recognized as better PREPARED by the person being coached.
Another point that can make the progress of a person being coached easier, is the LEVEL OF SELF-AWARENESS that the person has of the changes that are required to improve your life situation. I mean, whether she/he has arrived at a deep conviction that change is needed. This is something that the coach must identify in a diagnostic session.
If these elements are not present, it is very difficult for the self-learning process to be successful.
