“Once used to bolster troubled staffers, coaching now is part of the standard leadership development training for elite executives and talented up-and-comers at IBM, Motorola, J.P. Morgan, Chase, and Hewlett Packard. These companies are discreetly giving their best prospects what star athletes have long had: a trusted adviser to help reach their goals.” — CNN.com
What is Life Coaching?
Life Coach Definition from International Coach Federation – “Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach’s job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.”
How does Life Coaching work?
Quite simply, it is you taking a pro-active role in your own life; having the courage to step outside of your box of “self-limiting” beliefs and step into the realm of possibilities. A Life Coach helps you to see your life through another lens, one without judgment. Through guidance and support, be able to see your highest potential in all aspects of your life. Working with you, a Life Coach offers guidance as you devise an action plan, while making you accountable for living an authentic life and honoring your greatest gifts.
Coaching is not therapy nor is it counseling.
You know yourself better than anyone…sometimes the answers to your hardest questions are hidden within… your coaching session will help you find the key to unlock the door to the realization of inner knowledge.
Who benefits from Life Coaching?
Everyone!! You, your family, friends, associates..when you begin to live a more authentic life..everyone wins.
