There are two kinds of coaches. Those who give you answers and those who give you questions.
There’s a place for both but it’s likely that only one is a good match for you.
The one who has the answers tells you what to do to achieve your goals, the other one helps you figure this out for yourself.
In the first case you trust the coach to have the experience to know what’s best for you, in the second case the coach trusts you to have the ability to know what’s best for you.
In the former case the job of finding the right question is yours, in the latter case it’s the coach’s job.
It pays to become conscious about which one you need before hiring your coach.
(And if you’re a coach, it’s just as valuable to understand your approach in this regard.)
