We know that there are many business coaches out there in the marketplace. Some of those coaches are poor, some are adequate, some are good, some are great. But what sets the peak performing business coach, or what I call the MVP (Most Valued Professional) Business Coach, apart from the rest of the business coaches? From my personal research and experiences, I believe that these MVP business coaches possess a top ten set of traits that really distinguishes them from the average business coach. In my opinion, the top ten traits of a MVP Business Coach are:
Trait #1: a life-long learner
Trait #2: a strategic thinker
Trait #3: high ethical standards
Trait #4: a commitment to continuous self-improvement
Trait # 5: an excellent listener and “hearer"
Trait #6: an ability to balance their work and personal lives
Trait #7: an ability to clearly focus on clients and their goals
Trait #8: an ability to be a visionary and to see the larger perspective
Trait # 9: a confidence in delivering their professional service
Trait #10: an ability to be positive, persistent and passionate
When searching for a business coach, I recommend that you seek out one that possesses and exhibits the above traits or at least a majority of these traits.
