Is Style Important?

Coaching is the medium through which the coach ‘self – actuates’ his/her client into forward movement towards their agenda. Just as each client is unique and special, so is the coaching style. A coach may have a unique style or he may have a repertoire of styles. Style assumes importance because it facilitates the establishment of ‘rapport’ between the coach and the coachee as also helps the coach to make smoother and quicker progress. A coaching style which passes muster with the coachee is more likely to proceed well in forward direction. Therefore, coaching style assumes significance.
