As a Mentor, you are exceedingly generous with your knowledge, and you seek to help your clients through a direct, consultative approach.
You have a great deal of experience, and your clients benefit from learning how you approach and work through issues.
One pitfall many Mentors experience is that, in their desire to help, they may be too quick to provide solutions.
Mentors would benefit from slowing the process down and creating opportunities for their clients to find their own answers, because this allows clients to feel more invested in the process, the plan, and the outcome.
As a Strategist, you are committed to forwarding the action so that your clients see results - fast.
You are particularly adept at partnering with your clients to create a strategic action plan and you provide exceptional accountability. Your clients know that they will make progress when they work with you.
One pitfall many Strategists experience is that, in their desire to help, they may gloss over their client’s emotions.
Strategists would benefit from slowing the process down and affirming the client’s feelings and circumstances before heading into action mode, because clients who feel heard are more invested in the process and likely to take action.

One pitfall many Healers experience is that, in their desire to help, they may spend too much time processing emotions and not enough time forwarding the action.

Your clients know that you are a wise, out-of-the-box thinker and that they will accomplish great things as a result of your coaching.
One pitfall many Innovators experience is that, in their desire to help, they shift too quickly into opportunity-mode when the client feels disappointed or frustrated, or they offer too many possible options at once.
Innovators would benefit from affirming the client’s emotions and following their energy, because clients who feel heard and empowered experience greater success.
As an Intuitive, you are calm, empathic, and wise, and you connect quickly with your clients, understanding them on a deep level.

One pitfall many Intuitives experience is that, in their desire to help, they prioritize intuition over data or external circumstances. Additionally, they may make “intuitive leaps” before the client has had a chance to come to their own understanding.
Intuitives would benefit from balancing or confirming their intuitive hits with outside information, and in being mindful of the client’s energy and level of awareness.
