Life Coaching is about coaching the person, not just the problem.
Coaching is a relational experience in which one person facilitates an individual or a group to discover their God-given potential so that they grow personally, and make their unique contribution.
Coaching is also about change, and confronting habits and thought patterns that are often deeply imbedded over the years. At times they are difficult to alter.
Coaching is about “Action.” Each session seeks to determine at least two action (homework) steps to be taken before the next session.
The five step guide for conducting an effective coaching session
The coaching relationship will provide you personal awareness, insight, modifying behavioral patterns and establishing action steps for results that can change your life.
Coaching is not counseling or therapy.
Many of the communication techniques maybe similar. Coaching is limited advice, more reflective and your coach asking you good questions.
Counseling focuses more on the past to bring about healing, and addressing emotions in order to move forward. Coaching is future and actioned based. This is more for people who are in a healthily place emotionally.
Coaching is not authoritarian. I will push you beyond what you may think you can do. Ultimately change will be totally up to you. The ball will always be in your court.
Because it brings out the positive attributes that are in you!
