A Good Coach

Publié le 8 Février 2016

I never fail to wonder when I see all those coaches swarming all over the social and professional networks and boards... what those coaches may offer...

I came to coaching in my early forties... and, as experienced as I was being a work-worn teacher, a trainer, a teacher trainer, an auditor, an entrepreneur, a business person having experience in such various fields as catering, communication, cultures and languages, I am glad I didn't get to coach before...

Coaching draws on so many skills and fields -most of them best acquired and practiced hands-on- such as manufacturing and engineering, psychology and philosophy, language, communication and interpersonal skills...

That's why real coaching is so expensive and so well paid... it's an awful lot of work... but it's a fascinating job !

All skills nobody could gather in earnest before they're at least forty ! So where do all those young coaches get it ?
No matter your coaching diploma, verification or validation... or even accreditation no matter how high, coaching won't save you if you haven't got it altogether !

I see schools and universities all over the planet delivering coaching diplomas everywhere everyday to people who just wouldn't pass muster with me...

Next time you choose a coach I recommend you have a good interview before you hire him or her... and check on their curriculum...

Salut Jesse, c'est Uma, comment vas-tu ? Ca fait longtemps?

En lisant ce poste, je me suis souvenue de nos longues conversations que nous avions eues sur Facebook par rapport au coaching... particulierement les pseudo-coaches, et qui sont helas hyper nombreux de nos jours :(

L'extrait qui m'a le plus frappe dans ton texte, c'est la question que tu as posee, je cite: "All skills nobody could gather in earnest before they're at least forty ! So where do all those young coaches get it ?
No matter your coaching diploma, verification or validation... or even accreditation no matter how high, coaching won't save you if you haven't got it altogether !" Surtout l'extrait ou tu dis "where do all those young coaches get it?" C'est effectivement une question que malheureusement, surtout a l'Ile Maurice, personne ne pense a se poser, qu'on soit etudiant ou professionnel, et c'est fort dommage.

Non seulement on recruit n'importe qui comme coach mais tout ce que les coaches enseignent lors des conferences, seminaires et ateliers de travail, personne ne prend meme la peine de chercher si leurs explications sont exactes ou pas. On assiste a leurs reunions, et apres on passe a autre chose.

Je n'ai pas de formation de coach, mais selon mon opinion personnelle, le coaching necessite aussi une interaction entre le coach et l'audience. Le coaching, c'est non seulement par rapport a ce que les coachs ont a apporter a leur audience, mais c'est aussi l'audience elle-meme, a travers ses questions et ses reactions, ce qui represente une contribution et une continuation par rapport a ce que les coaches lui apporte. Qu'en dis-tu?
