There are four levels of awareness that inspiring coaches develop to build a positive coaching mindset.

One level of awareness is to know your thoughts.

Here are a few tips from The Power of Positive Coaching:

  1. Maintain a positive thought life by controlling input from media, others, and you.
  2. Choose to look for positive performance and traits; that’s what your mind’s eye will see.
  3. Seek unfiltered truth about your coaching from your team to prevent blind spots.
  4. Create “mental space” for self-reflection and planning.
