Make Things Happen - Life Coaching

When people ask what I do for a living, their next question is usually, “What is a life coach?” The coaching industry has exploded in recent years with people offering their services as fitness coaches, wellness coaches, success coaches, happiness coaches, business coaches, executive coaches. You name it, there is a way to coach it. But the term “Life Coaching” seems so esoteric. Here is my definition of Life Coaching.

What Is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching empowers people to define their goals and find the answers within themselves on how to achieve those goals.

A life coach will help you break down your goals into actionable steps, and hold you accountable to a specific timetable, ensuring that you reach your desired outcome.

What Life Coaching Is Not

Life Coaching is not therapy or counseling. It does not delve into past issues or offer answers to life’s problems. Rather it deals with removing obstacles that are preventing you from achieving your goals. We sort out what you can work on in the present to help you get to your destination in the future.

How Life Coaching Works

When you sign up for life coaching sessions, you will receive a questionnaire to help you clarify the topics you want to work on. Together we’ll choose the most important goals for you and work out a plan to achieve them.

Life Coaching works best when you sign up for a package of multiple sessions. In the first session we’ll discuss goals, break those goals into achievable steps, and set up a timetable for you to work on them. In the next sessions, we’ll check on your progress. Then we’ll set new goals and discuss if you are ready to move on to other areas of achievement.

For life coaching to work for you, you must be prepared to fully commit to your goals.

Group Coaching

The paragraphs above describe private one-on-one coaching. There are also programs that offer group coaching, where a number of people sign up to a program and the whole group goes through a series of sessions together. This usually takes place online.

The coaching will come in the form of a daily or weekly email and will often include videos, audio sessions, workbooks and self-study exercises. There are usually periodic group telephone calls where participants can talk to the coach live and ask questions. A forum is usually provided so the participants can talk to and support each other. These are a great way to get started on your goals before committing to one-on-one coaching.
