Beginning a career as a coach may be both exciting and overwhelming. When faced with a difficult client situation or attempting to determine how to effectively follow up after an engagement ends, it’s common for new coaches to wonder where their blind spots could be. Fortunately, there are practical methods to dispel these uncertainties.
Below, Dr. GB Hewawasam discusses why it is important for coaches to teach how to “be good” rather than “do good.”
“Coaching is mostly about teaching someone how to “be good” rather than “do good,” which is consulting. My initial challenge was distinguishing these two categories. However, I have transformed into a coach who can “be good” and maintain a constant mindful state. The clarity cultivated within this state allows me to make effective decisions in my own life and enables me to lead others with confidence.” – Gamini Hewawasam
