Coaching Starts by Building a Relationship
a coach is able to move forward and work with a client in helping them
to achieve what they would like to, it is imperative to build a
trusting, caring relationship with them. If a client does not trust you
then they will find it hard to fully reveal their difficulties and
engage openly, preventing them from getting the most out of their
coaching sessions. Establishing this relationship is of utmost
importance. It is the cornerstone of coaching.
may be a clash of personalities, cultural or sexual tension between a
coach and client. If there is any reason why a coach thinks they cannot
work well with a client, it is best to discuss this with the client and
then, with their permission, to refer them on to another life coach who
is better able to help them.
The same is true of the client - if
they feel that they cannot work with the coach, they will either tell
the coach or simply never arrange to see them again. Sometimes this will
happen. An experienced coach will recognise this and not let it affect
their confidence, after all no-one is able to get along with everyone.

types of coaches may also work via the telephone, web chat, Skype or
email. In fact, some coaches work exclusively using the latter

have the same stigma as some other helping professions.
therapist has often associated with some stigma depending on the
society, culture, and age group. There is no similar stigma attached to
having a life coach, business coach, wellness consultant or sports
coach. Among some groups it may even be seen as kudos to have a coach.
When starting to work with a new client, a life coach should ensure that they appear to be:
- Open to listening to what the client has to say
- Treating the client as an individual
more you engage with the client and express an interest in what they
have to say, the more they are going to trust and relate to you.
