6. How does one go about selecting a coach?

Just like finding a great new restaurant or movie (or great financial advisor…), word-of-mouth personal referral is highly recommended. Talk to someone who has experienced significant positive outcomes as a result of engaging a coach. Ask for an initial free consultation—any coaches worth their salt will welcome the opportunity. Negotiate terms and “conditions of satisfaction”—I require an initial six-month commitment and have each client sign a “compliance agreement” so there’s a clear understanding of mutual expectations for working together. Credentials? There are a number of good quality coaching programs offering credentials. I would still want to know from a coach with credentials, “Who have you worked with, and what have their results been?” One final recommendation – CHECK REFERENCES.
