We believe a great coaching session has these characteristics:
Depth of Insight: You’re able to connect various details of a client’s situation to make big-picture connections. These are the types of insights that clients won’t be able to get anywhere else. Lacking depth of insights manifests itself as overuse of generalizations, incorrectly applying learned knowledge, difficulty elaborating on answers given or not communicating answers in a direct, concise manner.
Provide Actionable Advice: You’re able to provide advice on what clients can do to help them achieve their goal. You can break down suggestions into step-by-step plans that clients can understand and do.
Compassion: Coaching with compassion means you’re not only empathizing with clients, but also understanding why they feel the way they do on an intellectual level and it influences your approach to coaching in a positive direction. Compassion helps you better understand your client and stay attuned with how they feel throughout the time you’re coaching them.
Clarity: Your thinking isn’t being influenced by clouded thinking, personal opinion or ulterior motives. You’re able to draw conclusions from an objective, non-judgemental standpoint and articulate them concisely.
Balanced Detachment: Detachment helps you process information without having your emotions be influenced to the point they negatively affect your coaching. The right balance of detaching yourself from a client’s situation will allow you to maintain objectivity while empathizing with clients.
There is no mandatory previous work experience, but experience in the field of coaching, counseling, psychology, or social work is valuable.
This is a full time position, 40+ hours per week. You can work from anywhere in the world. We’re a 24×7 service so you can set flexible hours. Starting compensation for new coaches varies. Coaches can earn $15/hr within 6-12 months, and top performing coaches can earn significantly higher rates.
