Coaching with backbone

As coaches we talk about coaching with “heart and backbone” (Whitworth). Backbone is the ability to hold someone’s “feet to the fire,” to hold them accountable to what they care about and what they say they will do. As coaches, backbone is being willing to hold up a mirror for our client showing them where the incongruence lies, even when this may be hard to hear. This is a big part of our service to clients.
