Life Coaching and Business Coaching is much like being coached by an athletic coach but instead of training with physical movement and exercises we focus on the state of your life goals and the stability of your mindset.
It is the job of a good coach to effectively help motivate strategize & assist in the development of self sustainability. We become great accountability partners, holding you fully accountable to the success of your follow through in order to reach your goals completely and in a manner.
A friend. Talking to a friend or two is a wonderful option to have but is your best friend an objective professional who you can trust to effectively advise you on the most important aspects of your personal or professional life?
Sometimes, our friends can’t tell us the truth, as much as they would like to, because they don’t want to risk losing the friendship. A good coach will never afraid to tell you the truth and will be willing to be temporarily “disliked” at any time. Why not have a professionally trained life coach on your team.
A Therapist. Life coaching is not therapy. Life coaches don’t work on past-based issues or traumas. Life coaches are not psychologists or psychotherapists. If you start life coaching, and have not resolved an issue from the past, then it is very likely you will be referred to work with a therapist to resolve the issue. It is very common for unresolved traumas or addictions to stop us from getting what we want in our lives. Life coaches focus on the present and the client’s goals for the future. We help people move forward and set personal and professional goals that will give them the life and career they really want. Most coaching clients are healthy, successful people who might be a bit stuck or simply want to make a big change in their lives and want the support of a coach to do so.
People are tired of doing life normally or in other words like robots? Wake up, work then back home to get prepared to do the same thing again the next day. People are ready to do something new, special and meaningful. The problem is however that many can’t see how, or if they can, it becomes difficult to build their current life around their new goals and desires. A coach will help them to navigate these things.
Coaching assist in the realization of how simple it can actually be to accomplish some of these desires that several years or even days ago might have felt out of reach or like a pipedream. A life coach is not a miracle worker (well, they are, sometimes) but a life coach does have a large tool kit to help the Big Idea become a Reality. Fortunately, people now have time and resources to invest in themselves in this kind of personal growth.
Life coaching works for several reasons:
Synergy between the life coach and client creates momentum and enthusiasm. Better goals are set, ones that naturally motivate the client. The client develops new skills, which lead to greater success.
Coaching provides a structure of support. When people work on their own most times they start out with the best intentions but soon after hit a snag and derail completely.
A certified or accredited Life Coach can help you quickly asses and realign through life snags and inevitable road blocks so that the most can be accomplished with less pushback and less effort in a remarkably short period of time.
Objectivity. Your coach is an objective, positive supporter. Not everyone is lucky enough to have such a friend or colleague to provide this. If you’ve been doing it solo, try seeing how much more you can accomplish with your own personal coach!
A life coach will focus where the client wants to focus: Your goals are our goals. Sometimes, in order to be more successful in business, you need to do some personal work. Don’t be surprised if we take time to dig personally to get clearer understanding to guarantee that our time together will be maximized. Expect to get some personal assessments and quizzes as well.
Life coaches working with individuals cost anywhere between $200 to $1,000 per month for a 30- to 60-minute call three or four times a month.
Depending on the severity, urgency and desired duration of your coaching the cost will vary to accommodate your desired outcome so don’t be afraid to inquire!
