WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL LIFE COACHING?
Coaching is all about powerful conversations, active listening and powerful questioning! Coaching conversations are powerful because both the coach and client concentrate fully during the discussion, and direct their body, mind, and spirit in a very-focused way.
Does life coaching have a common philosophy? There are several schools of thought about what constitutes the best practice as a life coach. Differences will exist among life coaches, and each coach will adopt their own personal life coaching philosophy.
How a client views things, how they are inspired, issues that are blocking their progress, their attitudes, and life view will be revealed through powerful questioning and powerful conversations. This will help to develop exercises and action plans to move forward with goals and objectives. The client will be able to think through things in a different way, with clarity and balance.
Take a look at what sports coaches do. They help their clients develop technical expertise. They also help them to: set performance targets, cope with pressures and stresses, maintain motivation, stay focused, proper technique, rid out negative beliefs, develop and maintain vision, celebrate victories!
A Life Coach is Hyper-Focused On Growth
A Life Coach Will Partner in Your Success
Oprah: “I remember the very first time we had a life coach on the show. She shared with our audience a list and, literally, in the audience women booed her when she said put yourself at the top of that list. [What she meant was] put yourself at the top of the list and nurture yourself, honor yourself, stop the crazy mind chatter in your head that tells you all the time that you’re not good enough.”
Serena Williams: “Life is so much bigger than tennis. It’s the basic things in the little steps of life that we overlook. You should be the happiest person alive, because that’s a gift in itself a (life coach) helped me realize that.”
Bill Gates: “Everyone needs a coach. We all need people to give us feedback. That’s how we improve.”
Tiger Woods, Brad Pitt, Michael Phelps and George Clooney are all highly successful in their fields and have all consulted a life coach to help them focus on and achieve their goals. At the heart of it all lies the idea that people must be given the power to help themselves.
