What Is Life Coaching

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?

Life Coaching is a process and partnership that is created between you and a professional coach to assist you in personal growth and achievement of your goals. A Life Coaching session is a time that you and your coach get together to brainstorm, share, clarify, prioritize, and make a plan of action towards a specific goal or desirable outcome.

Why People Turn to a Life Coach

People turn to a life coach because they want to expand their awareness, learn new skills, be inspired, motivated and held accountable. They want help identifying blind spots, facing fears, overcoming obstacles, and navigating through challenges.

Athlete’s, professionals, businesses, and individuals seek the help of a coach to achieve specific improvements in a wide variety of areas. The most common are:

  • Achieve work/life balance
  • Manage stress
  • Be happier and more confident
  • Improve focus and performance
  • Nurture relationships
  • Create a healthier lifestyle
  • Realize a specific personal or professional goal.

Life Coaching is NOT therapy, counseling or consulting

There is no diagnosing or labeling. Nor are there any assumptions that something is wrong, broken or needs fixing.  

Making The Most Out of Life

Authenticity, connection, and contribution are at the heart and soul of meaning and life satisfaction. It’s difficult to express these attributes when we don’t know how to use our gifts, talents, skills, and power to create positive life experiences. Partnering with a Life Coach is a sure-fire way to learn how to access, develop and express your next best version of yourself. Life Coaching has also been proven to improve overall life satisfaction and an increased sense of self-worth.

Independent studies reveal the following benefits from using a Life Coach.

Making The Path Doable

Many individuals fail to achieve their goals for a wide variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons for unrealized achievement is not know how to set specific, measurable, achievable and timely goals.  It’s easy to envision the big picture, but many individuals can’t envision the path or the steps required to achieve. When the path isn’t broken down, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. With too much tension and pressure, it’s no wonder many individuals feel stressed out and give up. With the help of a coach, a person can learn how to see the path and set realistic and achievable goals. 

How Not To Quit – Overcoming Hopelessness and Depression

People set goals all the time but often quit before they can see any gains.  Unfortunately, this habit of stopping before you can see the evidence of your effort contributes significantly to a sense of hopelessness and depression. Thankfully, attainment is quickly learned when presented in the right light.With the help of a Life Coach, you can become more resilient and overcome those temporary feelings of wanting to quit so that you stick to your plan and achieve your dream.
