6 questions to ask any coach

If you are thinking about hiring a coach, make sure you hire one that's right for you with these 6 questions.

1. What training did you go through to become a coach?

2. What will be different for me at the end of your program?

    • Make sure you are clear on what you are investing in. If it sounds fluffy and ambiguous, keep asking.

 

3. What specific things have you helped other clients overcome?

    • Make sure the coach you are hiring has helped people with your similar challenges.

 

4. What if I start working with you, but decide it’s not the right fit?

    • A good coach is not in it for the money. They are in it to help you get the results you want.

 

5. Who is your coach?

    • A coach that believes in coaching puts their money where their mouth is.

 

6. What have you been coached on recently that’s helped you?

    • A good coach continues to work on themselves so that they can share their insights with their clients.
