    What Is Life Coaching? What Is Life Coaching? Presentation Transcript

    • What is Life Coaching?
    • What Coaching Isn’t
    • Coaching Isn’t…
      • Therapy/Counseling
      • Therapist – A Therapist is an expert who provides a diagnosis and treatment plan. They help people deal with their past, understand what happened to them, and why they do what they do. Therapy helps heal old wounds.
      • Coaching
      • Coach – A coach partners with their client as they are NOT an expert in the client’s life. A coach is a tool who helps clients determine their own plan or path forward. A coach propels clients toward their future; toward the life or the business they want to create.
    • Coaching Isn’t…
      • Consulting
      • Consultant – An expert who advises, provides recommendations and/or completes specific work for a business.
      • Coaching
      • Coach – Helps individuals to identify goals & challenges (personal or professional) and works with clients to overcome challenges and meet or exceed their goals much faster than they would on their own. A coach helps clients to develop their own skills rather than rely on the coach’s.
    • Coaching Isn’t…
      • Mentoring/Training
      • Mentor – A Mentor is an advisor or teacher who has knowledge, experience or skills to share with a mentee. They guide someone in the footsteps they have already walked.
      • Coaching
      • Coach – A Coach does not advise or recommend rather they help a client draw on their own skills, strengths, abilities, and capabilities through intense listening, questioning and challenging in a non-judgmental approach.
    • What Coaching Is!
    • Coaching Is…
      “A partnership with clients in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
      “The ideal coaching relationship honors the client as the expert in his/her life and work, and believes that every client is naturally creative, resourceful and whole.”
      ~ The International Coaching Federation
    • Coaching Is…
      “Incredible personal support unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It is a partnership that focuses solely on the client’s needs, which creates courageous and empowered personal and professional growth, self-awareness, and rapid achievement of goals leading to a very fulfilled and happy life, as defined by the client.”
      ~ Laura Menze

      ~ The International Coaching Federation
    • Coaching Myths
    • Coaching Myths
      Myth #1– I can coach myself or talk to my best friend
      Fact:It is very difficult to create the accountability you have with a coach in a friendship or with yourself. A friend will have their own personal agenda for you, and you will likely let yourself get away with not accomplishing some of the things you set out to do.
      Myth #2– A coach can be like a nagging mother
      Fact:A coach will only hold you accountable in the exact way in which you prescribe. For example, if you want them to follow-up with you on your goals once a month, then they will do just that…there is no judgment involved.
      Myth #3– I need to get myself organized or have my ducks in a row before I hire a coach.
      Fact:Actually, that’s the perfect time to hire a coach…when you feel disorganized or a bit lost. A coach can help you get organized, figure out your priorities, and get focused on a direction that suits you faster and with better results than when working on these things on your own.
      Myth #4 – Coaching is too expensive.
      Fact:There are coaches in all ranges to fit any income. If the coach you have selected is out of your price range, ask for a referral to one that is a better financial fit. Just remember the value of hiring a coach that fits your style and needs as well as the level of experience that coach brings to the table.
    • Coaching Myths
      Myth #5 – Coaching is just like training.
      Fact:Training focuses on teaching; coaching focuses on bringing forth your own, personal wisdom.
      Myth #6 – Coaching is too “out there” for me.
      Fact:Coaches come in all styles and use a variety of approaches including very mainstream approaches. The key is finding a coach that suits you.
      Myth #7 – Coaching needs to be face-to-face.
      Fact:Everyone has their own, personal preference for communication. E-mail, texting, Skype, or phone…coaching is very effective over many different mediums as well as face-to-face. Each has pros and cons. It is simply a matter of choosing something that is conducive to your needs and/or lifestyle.
      Myth #8 – Working with a coach takes too much of a time commitment.
      Fact:You choose the time commitment that is best for you. A coach can also help with time management so that you can create the time necessary to focus on yourself.
