Essential Components to Build a Strong Coach-Client Relationship
At the core of every successful coaching business are strong coach-client relationships.
Here are 5 essential components to help get them right.
Building a Good Relationship with Your Client
Check for Chemistry
When cultivating a strong relationship with your client, it is important to take subjectivity
A chemistry session helps you understand if you'll be a good
fit for each other.
Ensure Client Coachability
Coachability is more of a mental attitude towards coaching. This attribute can be confirmed by checking if the client is open to feedback and is willing to take ownership of their actions.
Establish a Firm Foundation
If there’s minimal ambiguity or doubt, the client is more likely
to trust you and your process.
So, communicate detailed aspects of the coaching
Hold Space & Be Present
The client is not necessarily always looking for solutions,
but instead to just be in the
presence of the coach.
Understanding the subtleties between ‘doing’ and simply ‘being’ can create space for the coach-client relation to grow, thrive, and flourish.
DemonstrateIntegrity & Trust
Having your client’s best
interests in mind and treating every action (or inaction) with integrity will allow your client to trust you and share matters of
their mind more openly.
