Life coaching is a process that addresses improving your quality of life. Let me be clear – coaching is not counseling or therapy. Coaching focuses on the present and how to move you forward. Counseling or therapy attends to wounds from the past. Life coaching attracts many people who are lifelong learners and strive to improve their quality of life. Coaching fills a void once held by mentors and elders. The challenge is when you are in transition from college, switching careers, becoming a parent or even divorce. These major changes in life affect your quality of life. We resist change for fear, insecurity, and fearing to advance.
Inquiring about coaching can make a person feel insecure. Let us not fool ourselves, asking for help from a stranger is difficult. Asking a stranger to help you find purpose in life complicates things. I don’t want you to have mixed feelings or be discouraged about being coached.
An Agreement is Built on Trust
My goal is to leave you feeling comfortable and knowledgeable during our first engagement, so it leads to a coaching agreement. A coaching agreement clarifies what we offer and what you expect. It is a signed agreement about the roles, objectives, services, goals, timetables, policies and procedures of our relationship in exchange for money.
Change is hard for anyone. It can be uncomfortable and hard to accept. A lot of people make an attempt to initiate change without any accountability. Some are even embarrassed to tell someone about it for fear of humiliation or rejection. It is often draining and challenging to undertake change alone.
Coaching is walking alongside you from where you are at the present to where you want to go in the future. Coaching is a vessel to grow. It helps transport people from one place in life to another. Like a stagecoach or a ship, it transports you. Coaches have helped teams and athletes improve performance and grow. Coaches have wisdom and experience that is valuable for someone to grow. A coach is responsible for giving instruction, inspiring and guiding a person to live with more confidence. This is accomplished through exploration of options and finding fulfillment.
