No one likes to admit this, but IQ matters. Intelligence matters, especially in a coach.
If your coach can’t tell what’s important and what’s fluff, you’ll waste time on the wrong lessons.
If your coach can’t quickly adapt and evolve to situations, they won’t be able to navigate complex issues. If your coach can’t spot potential problems before they crop up, you’re in for a rough ride.
"The measure of intelligence is the ability to change." - einstein
This is equally, if not more important, than intelligence.
Your coach should masterfully be able to navigate your triggers. They should be skilled at soothing your energy and feelings until the two of you reach the truth together.
If there’s a lot of friction, walking on eggshells, and emotional landmines in your chats, you have the wrong coach for you.
“Use pain as a stepping stone, not a camp ground.” - Alan Cohen
A coach helps you realize your dreams. They help you create the reality you want. So they need to understand the foundation of self-evolution: DESIRE. They need to help you master the tools of Law Of Attraction: BELIEFS & EMOTIONS.
If your coach doesn’t get the intimate & powerful relationship between your desires, your beliefs, and your emotions… they’ll be extremely ineffective at helping you. Period.
