He gives things to me straight and with this I know exactly what to improve on because he is a good coach giving me constructive criticism, even if it is not the most pleasing thing to hear. I believe the most important characteristic of a good coach is the ability to listen. Listening is a key step in being the best coach for an individual because coaches have to listen to what people want to do and help those people achieve their dreams. Whether they coach you in math class, tee ball, how to properly deep fry, or even life.
