In This Chapter
Coaching is a highly sought after skill and like all skills, it needs to stay sharp to stop you getting into bad habits. If you're honest, you accept that your skills aren't perfect. Thank goodness! You're only human and sometimes you get it wrong.
Part of developing as a coach is to engage in regular self-reflection on the quality of your coaching and notice where you come unstuck. Ask yourself, ‘What's the interference that trips me up at times?’ and ‘If I were being observed right now, am I walking the talk?’
In this chapter, you can read about some common pitfalls and identify some helpful first steps to begin correcting your course.
Engaging in a regular coaching supervision group is a brilliant way of gaining new insights from other coaches and noticing what you may be missing with your own practice. You can read more about supervision in Chapter 1.
