Are You Coachable?

February 9, 2011

You don’t know everything.

You do know that, don’t you?

Continual learning is a basic necessity to professional improvement and in many cases it’s other people who will help you get there.

But only if you’re coachable.  Are you?

To be coachable means to be…

  • Approachable
  • Attentive
  • Receptive
  • Curious
  • Objective
  • Trusting
  • Shapeable
  • Confident

It means that you must listen with the intent to learn rather than to show what you know – exactly the type of listening required in the sales process (listen>talk).

So who wants to coach someone?  And who needs a coach?
