Your readiness for coaching is not a static state based on how you feel about coaching. Readiness is your awareness of what you bring to the coaching engagement. It cannot be measured in binary terms—that is, either ready or not ready. In fact, whether you're ready or not, leadership coaching can be a powerful means of achieving your full potential as a leader in all parts of your life. However, the more thought you have given to understanding what you bring to the coaching relationship, the more effective you will be as a partner in creating an optimal leadership coaching process.
