The Qualities Of A Business Coach

Posted on July 9th, 2018 by Grace Keohohou

If there is one cornerstone quality of an empowering coach, it is to have a love for people.

Coaches have a deep desire to serve people in the highest possible way. They guide them to the insights and breakthroughs to have the most fulfilling lives, business and relationships possible.

A Good Coach Listens

A Coach has the capacity to truly listen to you. To hear the true meaning behind your words. Heart-centered listening requires a committed connection.

Communicating from your heart with another person is not possible if you do not have a passion for interacting with people.


A good coach connects with the client's power and greatness while noticing their faults and (perceived) shortcomings.

All people are inherently great.

A good coach is adept at seeing the greatness within you and being a mirror to reflect it back to you.

Negativity, pessimism and judgment are not characteristics of a true coach. Although it is a given that you will not feel a connection with every coach you meet, the experience is typically a positive one.

I love people. I absolutely love to interact and connect with the world at large. Although some solitude is essential for balance & well-being, it does not serve me to be in isolation from people for too long.

People truly are my passion. The gift of coaching allows me to connect and interact with people in a truly meaningful way.

Relationships & interactions with others is an essential facet of your everyday life. Whether your business, vocation or intimate relationships, how would it serve you to simply feel better about your interactions?  To look forward with excitement to sharing space and energy?

As you sow, so shall you reap. The more you focus on the light and greatness within people – including yourself, the more positive and empowering your experience with people will be.
