Characteristics of a Great Power Coach®

  1. Loving Presence (sees the Client and self as faultless/blameless).

  2. Mindfulness (deep listening and awareness).

  3. Purity in thoughts, words and actions: keeps all three positive.

  4. Intuitiveness (what's the real challenge or goal here?).

  5. Neutrality: as the Client is responding to questions, the Power Coach keeps their own responses neutral - showing neither approval or disapproval.

  6. Uses The Universal Laws as a basis of understanding human behaviour.

  7. Allows the Client to develop their own solutions while mentoring if necessary.

  8. Uses tools which assist the Client in truly understanding what is holding them back from achieving their goal.

  9. Brings the client to a place of "full power". (Plan and commitment are based on logic plus heart.)

  10. Expects no outcome or reward: ego is in the back garden, puts the responsibility and accountability in the heart and mind of the Client.

  11. Follows the CLI Success Triangle which includes coaching self every day to become wiser, more peaceful and more grounded.

  12. Understands and demonstrates the ICF International Coach Federation Core Coaching Competencies and the ICF Code of Ethics in their daily coaching business.

  14. Creates an "enjoyable" experience for the Client.

  15. Understands how our patterns of living are stored in the unconscious and uses tools to permanently change unconstructive patterns into positive ones.
