UK Coaching’s Principles of Great Coaching

Person-centred
Great coaching makes me feel valued and better for being involved. My coach knows and understands me. I am included in the session.
Empowering
Great coaching makes me feel a sense of belonging. I'm asked what I think about the session, my feedback counts and I leave feeling motivated, inspired to learn and develop myself further.
Organised
Great coaching means I am safe. When I ask, it's logical as to why we are doing things in the session to meet my goals. My coach is well prepared, instructions are clear and I know what the outcomes will be.
Positive
Great coaching makes me feel excited, inspired and glad I came along. My coach is with me
every step of the way. Conversations are motivating, and feedback is helpful. I'm praised for the efforts I make in an environment where I thrive and flourish.
Learning
Great coaching means that my coach understands me, and wants to help me get better. I feel confident that I am progressing and achieving my goals. I learn something new every time.
Engaging
Great coaching means I feel involved and motivated. The sessions are creative, and get the best out of me. My coach adapts to meet my needs. I can't wait to come back.
