Will the coach you’re considering…
- make you feel cared for?
- listen to you extremely carefully?
- ask you what aspects of the interview or presentation you most feel you need to focus on?
- ask for ongoing feedback on how well his or her advice is working for you?
- show as much commitment to your interview/pitch success as you do?
- help you communicate with genuineness/authenticity
- deeply understand your audience? Your topic?
- delineate with you specific action steps to take?
These are signs that you’ll have a productive outcome from your coaching session… and that your interview or pitch is likely to succeed.
