YOU ARE COACHABLE IF:
You want more out of life
You are grateful for what you do have but you are striving for more. You are willing to do whatever it takes to experience more love, more compassion and more joy, not just for yourself, but others. You recognize there are patterns that repeat in your relationships, career and life. You know that nothing is static, that everything must change and grow, including you.
You are committed to being the best version of you
You are conscious that you have experienced some set backs in life and love but you want to forgive. You don't want to be stuck in the past or filled with regret for things you haven't done. You really do know that there are things you can improve in the way of reactions and judgments. You aren't concerned with gaining others approval but you want to leave your mark on the world. You want to be known for being kind, loving, compassionate.
YOU ARE NOT COACHABLE IF:
You think you have it all figured out
Regardless of how many people you alienate you believe you don't have a problem. You like to blame others for anything you experience that is uncomfortable. You are only concerned with your own success, well being and appearance. You have to have your own way even if your way doesn't work. You will not allow for opposing viewpoints. Coaching won't work for you because you believe you are already the best you can be.
You have no interest in changing
Sure you've lost relationships, clients, jobs and friends but you really believe it's them and not you that needs to change. Your life is littered with broken relationships and chaos. You leave behind you a wake of destruction for others but you are left unscathed so what's there to be concerned about. The only thing you want to change is your bank account balance and how much vacation time you can take. As long as you don't see the harm in your behavior, you are not coachable.
While this is just a short list, the questions are easy enough to help you identify whether you are open to being coached. It's important to recognize if you are really open to change. If you are, the right coach will appear, one that resonates to you. When that person shows up, be grateful, be open, be willing and be committed.
