What Makes a Good Health Coach? (Part 1)

There are of course many qualities that make a person a good health coach. While it certainly makes sense for someone already in the health and wellness industry, it is not necessarily a requirement to become a health coach.

 

This is the first of several posts which discusses some of the basic qualities of what makes a person a good health or wellness coach, regardless of his/her background.

 

One such quality is the ability to empathetically communicate with people. Empathetic communication will encourage the client to accept you as a trusted health coach. What this means is that the health coach can identify with the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of his client. Using empathy may lead to an improved relationship between the health coach and client.
