Qualities of a Coach

Before becoming a mentor/coach, here are a few things to understand about the role of mentoring.

Most of us have had a teacher, coach or supervisor who has been a mentor to us and made a positive difference in our lives. Those people wore many hats, acting as role models, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends.

Mentors assume these different roles during the course of a relationship, and share some basic qualities:

     1)  A sincere desire to be involved with a young person

     2)  Respect for young people

     3)  Active listening skills

     4)  Empathy

     5) Ability to see solutions and opportunities

     6)  Flexibility
