What Should I look for in a Coach?

Hiring a coach is a great way to improve oneself, but not all coaches are the same. There are certain traits you should look for when deciding which coach is right for you. Successful coaches are able to motivate others, provide an outside perspective, and remain objective. Coaches need to be knowledgeable and an expert in their field. Always request an introductory interview with a potential coach to ensure that they not only understand your problems but have the critical thinking skills and tools available to help you solve them.

Hellen's Achievements

Hellen started Indaba to use her knowledge and expertise to help other professionals. She began by speaking and signing individual clients to take through her self-developed coaching materials. After building a book of business, she decided to automate her materials by creating them as eLearning programs.

Hellen could now deliver the content she used to create a successful company to people all over the globe. The eLearning programs were a hit and the MBA-level courses allowed clients to use the materials from the convenience of their own homes. Hellen was not done, she soon after created her own behavior assessment, DISCflex.

Indaba Global's software platform is the culmination of Hellen's life work. It allows clients to access content-rich materials and assessments. Hellen uses these programs with her clients, and Indaba Global supplies these programs to colleges, businesses, and coaches across the globe.
