160: The Art of Coaching: Embodying a Coaching Mindset

Mindset is much more than limiting beliefs; it's about how we relate to our internal experiences. Taking it a level deeper, a coaching mindset is about how we externalize our internal responses and how they inform our behavior as coaches.

Mindset is much more than limiting beliefs; it’s about how we relate to our internal experiences. Taking it a level deeper, a coaching mindset is about how we externalize our internal responses and how they inform our behavior as coaches.

As we continue our series on the Art of Coaching, each week builds on the last, and we develop a fuller picture of what it takes to become a masterful coach. This week we’re exploring what it means to embody a coaching mindset.

Embodying a coaching mindset is one of the ICF’s core competencies, which every ICF coach must practice actively. When we have a well-developed coaching mindset, we deeply understand that our role is to support and facilitate learning and growth in our clients.

TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello, my friends. Welcome to the Coach with Clarity podcast. My name is Lee Chaix McDonough. I'm your host, and we are continuing our series about The Art of Coaching, and this week we are exploring what it means to embody a coaching mindset. I'm really excited to talk about this topic this week because it's building on what we've already been covering as part of this series, this deep dive into The Art of Coaching. So if this is the first time you are listening to The Coach with Clarity podcast well, first off, welcome. I'm so glad you're here and you are in the right place. You do not have to have listened to the previous two episodes in this series in order to receive something from today's episode. But of course, I'm going to strongly suggest that at some point you go back in your feed and you add episodes 158 and 159 to your feed. Because in those episodes we talk about developing your coaching presence and we talk about next level listening, both of which are relevant to our discussion today around embodying a coaching mindset. So be sure to take a listen to those episodes if you haven't already. And for those of you who have been listening, I want to thank you so much for tuning in this week. I have so enjoyed receiving your emails and your DMs all about what you've learned from this series. We are really tapping into something here, and so I'm excited to continue our conversation today and really focus on embodying a coaching mindset.
