The psychological traits behind managing and coaching people

What separates the greatest people – who undertake managing and coaching  – from the rest? How do they consistently get the best out of their staff or clients, with seemingly little effort?

It’s not just their good looks, their charm or their smarts. It’s in the way their minds work; the way they think, and how they see the world.

Take a look at the seven psychological traits that make people – who undertake managing and coaching – the best.

1.  An irresistibly good attitude

These guys are always positive, balanced, friendly, professional and they’re always game for a challenge.

Even when they have to complete the tasks they dislike, they do it with grace. They’re pragmatic and reliable.

2. They’re super motivators

The best who undertake managing and coaching know how to motivate you – the individual – to get through some mountainous work task (or a daunting training schedule). Essentially, they help you master your own fears and uncertainties, and they guide you through it all.

They figure out what makes you tick – be it fame and glory, or a bonus.

3. They call a spade, a spade

These personality types are known for their direct approach and their transparency. They don’t play games, and they don’t use metaphors. It means they get what they want. And you always know what they expect of you and where you stand with them.

4. Mature

Maturity and age aren’t the same thing. Age does bring wisdom, but maturity means knowing what to with that wisdom.

A mature person takes responsibility for himself, his actions and his thoughts. He is honest with himself, and knows what he’s capable of.

5. Open minded and flexible

If you’re not prepared to think outside of your own paradigms, you won’t become the type of coach/manager we’re talking about. To really ascend to superstar status, you need to be adaptable – having an open mind will help you get there.

6. All about accountability

In the workplace (or at the gym), as in life, we all have certain responsibilities and obligations. Understanding what they are is key. Likewise, knowing how to admit when we’ve failed to accomplish these, and how we’re going to fix it.

A great person who undertakes managing and coaching  knows this. And he’s a stickler for it.

7. Walk the talk

Excellent leaders aren’t afraid to do the grunt-work, if it’s needed. They understand that sometimes, the best way to get their staff/clients to feel motivated is if they lead by doing.

8. Develop talent when they find it

A truly great manager/coach will see talent and instead of being threatened (or choosing to downplay it)he’ll do everything he can to develop that talent.

If you already have all these traits, then you should be a coach or a manager yourself! Turn your talents to a rewarding professional career. Check out the impressive Life Coaching Certification at Trifocus Fitness Academy, today.
