Reasons Why You Should Try Life Coaching In Your Life
by Glen Murdoch
Life coaching occurs when one hires a life coach so that they can assist them to realize and achieve their personal goals. The coach has been trained and certified to offer these services to the clients and they hold phone conversations with their clients for half an hour to even an hour for a certain period of time.
The amount you are charged and the services that are offered will vary depending on different coaches. The main duties of this coach are sharing advice with you, offering direction, aid you in making plans and they should hold you accountable for all the actions that you take on a day to day basis.
There are different coaches for various purposes and different aspects. Health coaches aid in any fitness and health goals that you may need met. Business coaches help you to achieve your business career advancement and a productivity coach as the name suggests helps an individual be able to increase their productivity.
For you to be a life coach, you should be familiar with disciplines such as psychology, positive adult development, sociology, career counselling, mentoring and NLP. Modern personal coaching was first started by Benjamin Karter who was a college football coach and later turned into a motivational speaker.
There are people who confuse coaching for therapy but this is not the case as coaching never examines or diagnoses. If you would wish to a personal coach then you need to acquire a certificate or a diploma and you have to attend classes for that. You can even acquire these programs via the World Wide Web.
Some of the aspects that a personal coach can train you one include relationships and intimacy, family and parenting, stress management and balance, motivation and time management, finances and budgeting, career planning and development, personal growth and spirituality, creativity for artists, musicians, writers and performers, entrepreneurial and small business development, health, lifestyle, aging and self care.
Good life coaching can be very costly but you should know that nothing comes easy and quality is key. Great thing about this is that enough years down the line you will still be reaping fruits from the lessons that you learnt from your coach. Make sure that you get value for your money and you should therefore not settle for anyone who is not professional and who does not have their credentials to be a personal coach. Go for someone that you can work with well and who you can find a friend in.
