Key Coaching Skills Needed

£0.00

In this suggested topic we will explore what are the key skills that are necessary for some one to practice coaching successfully. This is a deceptively simple undertaking, but I will take up the gauntlet, as I always had a personal interest for the deeper side of human development. And lo and behold, the challenges have already begun: Is it the deeper side, or is it the higher side of human development? Are those indeed opposites? Traditionally, psychologically oriented people would use the word “deeper” to denote added value, while the spiritually inclined would use the word “higher”. However, let’s bridge the gap by using the word evolved, as there is no spatiality in matters of mind and soul.

Looking up the word “skills” in the Merriam-Webster Thesaurus we find an interesting distinction between the word used in singular and plural form. Used in singular, i.e. skill, it means a “subtle or imaginative ability in inventing, devising, or executing something”, while in plural “knowledge gained by actually doing or living through
something”1.  In other words, a skill is a dexterity or a capacity in a certain field or area, while “skills” has a more encompassing character that is based on experience and touches the individual as a whole.
