I really want your help answering this question.
If someone claims to be a coach, does that make them one?
Does education and credentials make a coach?
What’s the attitude of an authentic coach?
How does an authentic coach act?
For the curious minded, here’s what prompted this question. I came across the name of a coach that I didn’t know and wanted to know more about him. I googled his name. I was surprised to see that one of the articles was from a marketing company talking about how they were marketing his persona as a coach. What? This is not to say he wasn’t a coach. I just think that it takes more to be a coach than having your marketing company call you one.
I do have some ideas of how I’d answer these questions, but I’d rather hear from you. You can leave a comment here. If it’s easier, just leave a comment on the Facebook page. What makes a coach authentic?
