Questions to Ask a Management Coach Before Hiring

Before hiring a management coach, it is important to ask the right questions to gain a better understanding of their coaching style and application. Ask the coach to describe their ideal client and under what circumstances they would not accept a client. Additionally, inquire if they have ever fired a customer and, if so, for what reasons. Leaders should also ask themselves: Where are my areas of opportunity? This demonstrates that you are aware of your own imperfections and that you value your mentor's ability to identify areas for improvement, growth, and development.

This question is broad enough that your mentor can address both personal and professional aspects, which will provide an excellent opportunity for transformation.
