Developing Your Coaching Alliances

In This Chapter

  • Getting the coach-client relationship off to a great start
  • Establishing trust and safety in your coaching sessions
  • Assessing and enhancing your professional competencies
  • Recognising the qualities that make a great coach

Coaches often describe coaching as a designed alliance; a dynamic relationship between two people – the coach and the client – who communicate fluently with each other.

This chapter focuses on getting the coach-client relationship off to the best start possible by building trust. I also touch on the four core areas of competency that any professional coach needs to deliver throughout the coaching alliance and then explore further qualities that a coach brings to strengthen the alliance.
