Why are you here? Apparently, there is some area of your life where you feel stuck or that you are not satisfied with and you are looking for some guidance from a life coach to figure it all out. The right coach can help bring out your very best and help you perform on a high level. The best athletes and other high performing individual have coaches. But before you hire a life coach, here are some critical things for you to consider?
The very first thing I recommend for an individual looking for a life coach is to be clear about what a life coach is. In short, a life coach is someone who guides and encourages individuals from an undesired point to the desired end. It can be career-transition, relationships, increasing revenue in your business, or any range of personal or professional matters. It is also imperative to discuss what a life coach is not. Life coaching is distinctly different from therapy, counseling, or consulting. A guide: if you are seeking someone to help you accomplish a specific project, achieve personal goals or cope with transition, a life coach will suit you well. If you are trying to deal with unresolved issues or pain from your past, you should consider a counselor or therapist.
Second, make sure that you do not rush to the first person that has a “Life Coach for Hire” sign in their window. It is essential that the Coach you hire is trained to help you gain the clarity, set the goals and accomplish what you envision for your future. The life coaching industry has grown and continues to proliferate. It is an overall positive because there is a great need, in a continually changing world, for professionals to help people cope with change. However, one of the negatives is that there is no license required; hence, there is a shallow barrier of entry. You would be wise to inquire about your potential life coach’s education and experience to see if they skill-set your needs.
