Coaching is becoming one of the best methods of taking anyone from where they are today to where they want to be.

How coachable is the average person you meet?
Sometimes coachable and coachable with help.
Some people are amenable to coaching and some are not. It is not the degree or skill. Difference is personality disorder
THese are some of the things to watch out for before choosing your coachee:
- Not invented here
- Someone else is the problem not me
- I know it all, I have done it all
When a person is closed this way, they don’t have the mindset to get coached.
Look for personality and personality types before accepting.
Coaching is not a remedy to illness or a pill. It is like a treadmill. You have to be accepting of feedback and constantly working.
Coaching grows self awareness. That self awareness can lead a person to reflect what a person is doing or not doing. It is not remedial but strategic business investment to help a person to reach his highest potential. WHen an organisation filters on talent. But the filter should be on effort. A person who will put effort to get better and not just talent.

Ask them for when you saw it. If you don’t agree, give me an example in which context. When you were aggressive or silent. You can judge for yourself if it is true for you.
