No Doubt Zone Characteristics that a Coach Needs
to be a Top 1% Coach
To be a top coach you must be clear, aligned, intuitive, tough, adaptable and resilient. You need a strong sense of self and a deep understanding that while the coaching relationship is key to transformation, it isn’t about you, but about your client. It is about getting bridging the gap between the clients unique talents and the fulfillment of their vision, getting them from where they are to their greatest levels of success.
You need the courage to act fearlessly, no matter how much fear or doubt you or your client have. You must act in the best interest of your client and not out of your desire to be liked or your fear of being judged, badmouthed, or even fired. You need to be committed to your mission, to excellence, and your client’s achieving their biggest vision.
Your decision-making and actions must be aligned with your goals for yourself and your client, and your client’s goals for themselves.
You need a to accept …and embrace… that as a top coach you will always be challenged to grow both personally and professionally.
Bottom line: Coaches in the No Doubt Zone don’t buy into limitation…their own or their clients.
Because of these characteristics, No Doubt Coaches see the genius, the power in their clients and they know how to bring it forward.
Without the NDZ characteristics…
- It’s almost inevitable that you will buy into limitations (FLAR). You won’t recognize the stories and trances (your clients or your own). You will go down the rabbit hole, unknowingly making transformation and success way more difficult, if not impossible.
- It is difficult to powerfully use yourself in the coaching relationship and keep your own issues out of the way.
- A coach who isn’t in the NDZ can unintentionally and unknowingly add to or intensify the client’s problem.
