Dear Friend

So, what is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a practice with the aim of helping clients determine and achieve personal goals.

Life coaches use multiple methods that will help clients with the process of setting and reaching goals. Coaching is not targeted at psychological illness and coaches are neither therapists nor consultants.

Life coaching has its roots in executive coaching, which itself draws on techniques developed in management consulting and leadership training.

Life coaching also draws inspiration from disciplines including sociology, psychology, positive adult development, career counseling, mentoring and other types of counseling. Contemporary life coaching can also be traced to the teachings of Benjamin Karter, a college football coach turned motivational speaker of the late seventies and early eighties.

The coach may apply mentoring, values assessment, behavior modification, behavior modeling, goal-setting and other techniques in helping their clients.

Government bodies have not found it necessary to provide a regulatory standard for life coaching, nor does any state body govern the education or training standard for the life coaching industry; the title of "coach" can be used by any service provider. Multiple coaching schools and training programs are available, allowing for many accreditation options.

According to a survey of coaching clients, "sounding board" and "motivator" were the top roles selected for a coach. Clients are looking for a coach "to really listen to them and give honest feedback." The top three issues in which clients seek help are time management, career and business.

"Why We All Need a Coach"
by Tom Weisner

Let me tell you a story about why we all need a coach.

Why we need someone to help us develop the plan and someone who will hold you accountable for working towards that goal.

Most weekday mornings I go to the gym before I head to work. About a year and a half ago I did this and was heading down to work. I used to keep M&M's in my car in case I got hungry going to work or coming home.

As I was driving I grabbed a handful and proceeded to eat them.

I pulled into the parking garage a while later grabbed my stuff and proceeded to walk to my office. I passed many people on the way holding doors, saying "Great Morning", talking about the weather, etc. Walking away several of the people were smiling, almost laughing, as I left them.

I was thinking to myself about what a small difference I made in their days. I was feeling good!

Later that morning I was in my office talking to someone and got up from my chair to get something. I looked down and saw what looked like a melted M&M on my chair. I asked the person I was meeting with if I had something on the back of my pants (strange question, but I thought necessary!).

Needless to say that person started laughing hysterically.

Turns out I dropped a couple of the M&Ms on my car seat on the way into work. They melted all over the back of my pants (they may not melt in your hands but they sure do melt on your pants!!).

How does this embarrassing story relate to coaching?

I thought everything was normal and people were smiling because I was being thoughtful and kind. It turns out I wasn't having the impact I thought I was, they just found my "dirty pants" funny.

Unless you are working with a coach you are somewhat blind to your "dirty pants". You can't see everything that you need to work on. You can't always develop a plan to change because you can't see yourself the way other people do.

Tigers Woods has a coach, shouldn't you find one too?

Make a positive difference in the world today!

"Becoming a Life Coach"
by David Bonham-Carter

As a life coach of some years standing, I am frequently emailed by people with queries about becoming a life coach.

So, I have recently put together a regular newsletter with information about the kinds of considerations which I believe you should take into account before you try to launch yourself into a coaching career.

This article gives an introduction to some of the preliminary issues that it may be worth you bearing in mind if you are thinking of being a personal coach.

My FIRST TIP would be that you think about your motivation for wanting to become a coach.

Some of the promotional material provided by life coach training courses and other organisations can give the impression that coaching is a career where it is easy to establish yourself and make a lot of money in a short space of time. Well, my experience and that of most coaches I know is that you can make a reasonable living from it, but like any other business becoming a life coach takes time, effort and perseverance.

So if your primary motivation is to make money easily then I would wish you good luck but suggest that you find yourself an alternative career!

On the other hand, if your primary motivation is to help people to make changes in their life or to deal with specific stresses or anxieties or difficulties in career or relationships, then I would encourage you to explore further. For most coaches the greatest rewards are in providing a helpful supportive service to people and seeing the benefits that coaching can bring. The personal satisfaction in being able to help people achieve and set personal goals is what makes coaching worthwhile.

My SECOND TIP is to give careful thought to the training that is appropriate for you.

There are a great number of coach training providers offering courses out there for people wanting to be life coaches. Some of these are extremely professional and good courses, others less so, so you need to check them out. Bear in mind also that different individuals will require different levels of training.

If you have experience already in a related professional area, such as counselling or psychology, then you are likely to have different training needs from someone who is completely new to this kind of work.

Make a list of what you want and need to get out of a coach training course (or any other course in a specialist coaching field that you feel is relevant to you). Look at a range of different possible options.

If possible, get feedback from people who have attended the courses as to their good and bad points and seek recommendations from anyone you know and trust who is already a life coach or has reliable information about the options.

My THIRD TIP is for those who are intending to set up their own life coaching practice rather than to work as an employee for an organisation.

If you don't have experience of creating your own business then this may well be an area that you need to focus as much time on as learning specific coaching skills.

Do you have ideas about how you are going to market your coaching business successfully? Have you worked out how many clients you will need and what rates you will charge for coaching sessions in order to make the profit you require to support a reasonable lifestyle? Are you familiar with any legal requirements about running a business, submitting tax returns etc?

If you are not yet sure about these and other aspects of a business then either check that the coach training courses you are considering teach these skills and areas of knowledge, or else work out another plan for how you will learn about them.

“Three Reasons to Hire a Life Coach”
by Anya Dee

Life Coaches are very popular today.

Most successful people have a coach, mentor or someone who has helped them along the way.

Here are some reasons why one can help you:

1) People naturally perform better when they have someone to be accountable to.

It’s a fact that if you partner up with someone, they will help you to stick to your plan. Have you tried dieting for years, only to fall back into old habits? What if you tried partnering up with a friend? I’ve tried this one myself and with much greater success when I had a partner.

That’s how a life coach operates. You tell them what your goals are and they hold you to them. They will press you to committing to a date when you have small steps completed and do all they can to encourage you along the way.

2) Hiring a life coach means commitment.

Let’s face it, if you’re paying the service to help you, you most likely won’t just throw the investment away. Most coaches charge between $150-$850 a month for services. Who wants to commit to that, and then not take advantage of it? No one. If you’re willing to pay for it, you’re most likely serious about getting somewhere.

3) Having a big goal means you’ll need all the support you can get.

Remember the second word of “life coach” is “coach”. Your “coach” does just what a Little League coach would do…they show you how to succeed and stick with you throughout the process. They encourage you and give you tips and tricks. They are your cheer leader, but with honest (sometimes brutally honest) feedback.

A life coach relationship isn’t like a friend. A friend may sugar-coat things and try to not hurt your feelings. Your coach, while they won’t go out of their way to hurt anyone’s feelings, will give you an objective educated opinion on what needs to happen for you to reach your goals. They aren’t paid to sugar-coat life. They are paid to make you succeed at whatever your goal is.

These are the most frequently heard reasons I’ve heard for hiring a life coach, throughout my practice.

I could give you tons more that are more specific, but most fall into general categories. If you’re looking to truly better yourself and push yourself, try hiring a coach. They can help you reach your goals sooner and give you added resources throughout the process.
