THe 'PEOPLE' Principles of Great Coaching

When we kicked off our #GreatCoaching campaign launched our Principles of Great Coaching, which are centred on the acronym PEOPLE.

They are designed to help you understand what great coaching looks like.

They are:

Person-centred

Great coaching makes me feel valued and better for being involved. My coach knows and understands me. I am included in the session.

Empowering

Great coaching makes me feel a sense of belonging. I’m asked what I think about the session, my feedback counts and I leave feeling motivated, inspired to learn and develop myself further.

Organised

Great coaching means I am safe. When I ask, it’s logical as to why we are doing things in the session to meet my goals. My coach is well prepared, instructions are clear and I know what the outcomes will be.

Positive

Great coaching makes me feel excited, inspired and glad I came along. My coach is with me every step of the way. Conversations are motivating, and feedback is helpful. I’m praised for the efforts I make in an environment where I thrive and flourish.

Learning

Great coaching means that my coach understands me, and wants to help me get better. I feel confident that I am progressing and achieving my goals. I learn something new every time.

Engaging

Great coaching means I feel involved and motivated. The sessions are creative, and get the best out of me. My coach adapts to meet my needs. I can’t wait to come back.
 
Great Coaching is about PEOPLE

We're inviting people across the UK to share when and where they have experienced great coaching, and to recognise their own coach for practising UK Coaching’s Principles of Great Coaching by presenting them with a #GreatCoaching certificate.

Remember to recognise your coach for practising our Principles of Great Coaching by presenting them with a #GreatCoaching certificate.
 
Don't forget to tag a photo of your coach with their certificate across your social channels using the #GreatCoaching hashtag.

Positive mental-health in the coaching that I do. I want to inspire every single person to try different things and find the one thing that makes you happy. Keep trying until you find that activity and reach your full potential.
