All of your points resonnate. The best coach I had led by example - I got to watch the way to do it "right", plus this person chose to be vulnerable with me in sharing their own successes and failures, and what contributed to each.

Oh and Mike - You're great!!

My experience as an executive coach and my business have taught me that in addition to many of the factors mentioned here, a key factor in relating to coaching is to deeply understand the perceptual filters of the other person...because not only are they filtering their own experience as we all do but they are filtering the messages from the coach! They are selectively hearing based on other need drivers..effective coaches make sure the messages are perceived adequately or correctly...and you don't have to be a professional shrink to do this, you just have to know them well, or use a good assessment tool.
