LIFE COACH

A good life coach will support and celebrate your every milestone, no matter how big or small.

What is a Life Coach? 

 

People need support to thrive in life. A life coach can assist and encourage you without passing judgment. They can help you perform at your fullest potential professionally, personally, spiritually, and mentally. Life coaches are masters at the tools necessary for achieving goals. Part of their job will be helping you to figure out what has been holding you back or getting in your way of success, and then they help you to push past whatever that is. They are often experienced at overcoming obstacles and achieving results themselves, and they use their learned experience to help others do the same.

Why work with a Life Coach? 

 

Accountability 

 

Everyone needs accountability to achieve their goals and dreams. Accountability means you are being held responsible for your own success. Rather than seeing it as burden or added stress, see accountability as a sense of ownership and pride over your life. When you share your goals out loud with your life coach, you will be held accountable for your goals and are more likely to make them a priority.

 

Unbiased Support & Feedback 

 

Unlike a friend or family member, a life coach is there to help you in your personal growth journey by giving you true and honest feedback - free of any bias. Your life coach will focus on providing input that will lead to your success and reaching your goals rather than trying to make you feel better (or sway you towards their own personal agendas). Advice will also be backed by years of professional experience gained from helping others with similar goals and dreams. Your life coach will be one of your biggest cheerleaders, celebrating every milestone and achievement on your journey while firmly and supportively putting you back on track where you may have swerved astray. 

 

During this process, you’ll learn more about yourself than you would have normally. Your life coach will ask you questions you may not have thought of and will provide you with a deeper insight into your life and aspirations. Here are just a few areas that can help you improve with a life coach: 

 

  • Work Performance 

  • Relationships 

  • Work-life-balance

  • Mental Health 

  • Communication Skills

  • Time Management 

 

Not only will you learn tools towards the life you desire, by helping you become more successful and sticking to a plan, you’ll inherently become more confident in yourself and your purpose. 

 

Goal Setting 

 

Setting long and short term goals is not always easy. Especially, when it can be difficult to visualize or organize how to begin. Your life coach will guide you through the process of setting goals by helping you understand your immediate and future wants and needs. 

 

They can provide you with leading questions that can help you to discover something profound about yourself and what you want out of life. They can also help you stay organized and make a plan to get results. Sometimes the hardest part of achieving goals is to make a plan that is realistic. If your plan is overly ambitious, you might get discouraged and sideswiped from your journey. A good life coach will make sure each step in your plan is attainable and specific enough so that you are crystal clear on what you need to do and when you need to do it.

 

Clarity & Direction 

 

The first thing a life coach is going to want to do is understand who you are and what you want. Sometimes you may know exactly what you want in your life, and other times you may have no idea. If you are feeling a sense of unhappiness or dissatisfaction and can’t quite put a name to it, a life coach can help. Clarity involves being clear about who you are and living a life that is meaningful and purposeful to you. It means knowing what you want, why you want it, and how you can go about getting it.

 

Who needs a Life Coach?

 

People who seek assistance from a coach are stumbling in one or more areas of life or just want to improve. These areas are things such as marriage, entrepreneurship, spirituality, health, and self-development. A life coach teaches others how they can put these principles to work for them in their career or personal life.

 

In addition, life coaches can help clients deal with stress and anxiety. A good life coach will: 

  • Be passionate

  • Have great listening skills 

  • Be non-judgemental or bias 

  • Maintain a positive attitude 

  • Cultivate curiosity 

  • Challenge you 

  • Communicate with clarity and honesty 

 

What to expect when working with a Life Coach? 

 

Coaching typically consists of a series of one-on-one sessions between you and your life coach and usually last 45 to 60 minutes each. Some clients meet with their life coach once a week, although some clients meet every two weeks or even just once a month - this all depends on your specific goals and needs. You and your life coach will always agree on what works best for you. 

Once you have established your main goals for coaching, your life coach will assess where you are now and the steps needed to get you to where you want to be. The coaching process will close the gap between your current state and your desired state.

 

At the end of each session, your coach will ask you to commit to completing certain tasks before the next session - often referred to as homework. At a pace you are comfortable with while also challenging you to reach what you want out of life. These will generally consist of specific actions which you and your coach have identified as being the most important things you can possibly do to move closer to your end goals. By making the commitment, you’re not only focused on the most important tasks to achieve your goals, but you’ll also have someone holding you accountable to make sure you’re constantly following through.
