What is Life Coaching?
Life Coaching is collaborating with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
A Life Coach enables clients to take control of their lives through actionable strategies for the improvements and goals the clients want to see in their lives.
In Life Coaching we honor the client as the expert in his life and believe that every client is creative, resourceful and whole.
My Responsibility as a Life Coach is to:
- Work closely with my clients to discover, clarify, and align with what they want to achieve in their life
- Encourage my clients to discover themselves and be aware of all their hidden potentials
- Trigger within them the ability to find solutions to their problems by helping them come up with strategies
- Supporting my clients in developing vision and goals for their life by using diverse strategies to empower them to use their power and be capable of resolving their own problems with their own solutions
The Life Coach Client Relationship:
In the coaching relationship, it is very important that the client sets each goal and objective.
In every follow-up that I have with a client, there are a clear agenda, expectations, and goals.
In each meeting, it is essential that action items be clearly stated with a timeline on each.
Life Coaching Versus other Methods:
A Life coach is flexible when working with clients because a coach is a generalist and an expert at being a change agent.
A life coach develops relationships with clients that require them to set their own goals, objectives, and action items, and can work with clients of any issue or profession.
Each client’s solution is going to be as unique as they are; so instead of a one-size-fits-all approach with what has worked for others, a life coach allows new strategies and solutions to be created by each client.
