    Do any of the ConnectedCoaches tribe have any great examples of where you have been taught 'soft skills' to be part of your coaching toolkit? What do you think 'soft skills' means?

    Hi Liz

    To me Soft skills are people skills where the rules changes depending on the team culture and players you work with.

    Soft skills have always been an important part of any coaching environment but have not always been given a name.

    Now that I am more focused on the need for these skills it is important for coach development that I work on mine constantly.

    I identified my areas of weaknesses and then looked at the soft skills I needed to develop.

    i used an NLP course to help me develop these.

    regards

    Thanks Bill

    Interesting that you've used NLP learning. Id not thought of that :)

    Soft Skills for me is the ability to interact with the people who you coach, who you coach with, who you coach for and the various others groups involved....

    It covers all traits such as personaility, communication, relationship building, that underpin our relaitioships with people.

    You will find in research these are classed as Emotional Intelligence, and the individual skills are classed as your EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient)
