The Key Coach Skills for Improved Performance

Interpersonal Skills

Coaches have high emotional intelligence and empathy, and are good at relating to people and rapport building. A key coaching Skill is knowing how to partner.

Communication Skills

How you listen, what you say, how you say it, and when you say it impacts whether your message hits its target and whether you get the results you seek.


Coaches create strategic visions for transformation by using expert tools and techniques and models of learning and thinking, such as NLP, to enable highly effective coaching outcomes.


Excellence in leadership requires leaving the problem solving mindset behind, instead through open ended powerful questioning skills coaches create openings in understanding and possibilities available.


A key coach skill is being engaged emotionally while remaining non judgemental and objective. Tact and diplomacy give space for people to try things out and be creative – effective leaders accept the mistakes of themselves and others.


Key coaching skills are active listening, reflecting and clarifying – leaders who competently listen for both text and subtext, and who respond with inclusive language will improve performance and increase the enjoyment at work.
