Reflection & cartoon time. What is coaching about? If the coach has too much experience, (s)he might not be the right person because (s)he might tell you what to do. On the other hand, a coach without experience is not likely to ask the right questions. What’s your advice for people who are looking for a coach?
Thanks for your thoughts.

    Look for someone who is passionate about the development of people. They don’t have to be a subject matter expert, but they need to be a process facilitator who understand peoples’ thought processes so as to help them overcome their self limiting beliefs through asking them challenging questions and helping them unleash the potential that is within.
    Also be careful of people who use “mentoring” and “coaching” interchangeable. There are lots of people who cannot differentiate between the two concepts.
