Abstract

The author looks at the coach throughout the prism of two psychological variables: personality and wellbeing. For many years, personality has been one of the subjects of the debate on professional efficiency, whereas wellbeing is both a notion explored by positive psychology and an important area of interest for coaching. As the coach is one of the two parties of the coaching process, the paper presents a theoretical discussion on the existence of personality traits that predispose a person to the coaching profession. In other words, the author strives to ascertain whether the personality traits and the wellbeing of the coach contribute to coaching being a positive activity and an effective method of influence.
