EXPERIENCE DOES MATTERS
What is your coaching process?
Any competent coach will be able to talk about her process. She might work hourly, on a package basis, or on a monthly retainer. Whatever the structure, she should be able to explain what the process is and what the outcomes are likely to be. A good coach will start asking you questions, and most likely will echo what she’s hearing, often with some unexpected insight. The right coach will intrigue you and even impress you from the beginning.
What kind of training do you have?
Coaching isn’t telling people what to do. Coaching is using inquiry to raise awareness, develop possibilities and move into action. Because career coaching also requires tactical expertise about topics like networking, interviewing and negotiations, some people who know a bit about these topics refer to themselves as career coaches, even though they have no actual training in coaching methods.
Where do you see clients?
Not every coach has an office, but I would be wary of someone whose only option is to meet you at any Starbucks. How serious a coach is about his business is partly reflected in the kind of investment he has made in training, office space and technology.
How did you get into coaching?
Most coaches I know are people who worked for many years in information-processing or management roles, and gradually realized that they were most fulfilled when working with people and helping them to develop.They are generally thrilled to be able to follow their passion. At the same time, what they did before may have a direct bearing on the kinds of career issues you face. In 2009, there are coaches trained as lawyers, coaches trained as bankers, and even coaches trained as cops. You can find a good fit.
Are you coachable?
This final question is for you, not the coach. To be coachable, you have to be open and conscious. You are, after all, trying to achieve something that you haven’t achieved yet. People are uncoachable when they have internalized cynicism as their core definition of self, or when they are unwilling or unable to detach from a narrative of victimization. Coaching doesn’t require you to believe that happiness is around the corner, but it does require you to be interested in taking a look.
