- The discomfort and frustrations caused by the status quo (boss, partnership, promotion, home/work balance) are significant.
- Commitment to the process: seeing the personal, long-term benefits, making the coaching cycle a priority in terms of time, attention and homework.
- The person being coached understands what it means to be coached:
- engaging in a discovery process,
- stepping out of the comfort zone,
- reflecting on one’s assumptions,
- trying new behaviors.
- The coachee is accountable for visible, measurable action.
