"I like the idea, but I have some other things I need to do first before I get a Life Coach."  

Sound familiar?

Some people have a dramatic life experience or revelation that brings them to life coaching with determination and confidence. But, most people are “looking into”

life coaching and hesitate for this reason.

 

They feel incomplete, unsure, stuck or a lack of direction, all of

which can make decisions seem overwhelming.

What they don’t realize is this actually indicates the

IDEAL time for a Life Coach!

How do YOU know when it's time for a Life Coach?

 

Honestly, you are here, researching the topic, which means that you know there is more to life than you are currently experiencing. This is exactly my role as a life coach – to help you get on track to your best life. People work with a Life Coach for a variety reasons, including:

  • Transition: Divorce. Empty-nester. New mom or dad. Loss of a parent. New job. Recent marriage. Anything new: a business, blended family, new home. 

  • Feeling stuck, lost or unhappy: Relationship or family issues. Career dissatisfaction. Recent college graduate. Feeling trapped in a current situation.

  • Health and Well-Being: Feeling unbalanced and overwhelmed in life. Feeling unhealthy and spiritually disconnected. Self-doubt and negative self-talk. 

  • Life Purpose: Wanting to live a life of meaning.

  • Life Management: Help with time management, career coaching, spiritual counseling, and health coaching.

 

The list of ways a great Life Coach can empower you and help you be successful is endless.

The International Coach Federation surveyed 210 coaching clients feedback about the value and use of coaching. Here are some of their findings:

  • Value of the coaching investment: 98.5% of the clients indicated the coaching investment was "very valuable" or "valuable".

  • Level of confidence in the coach: 50% confide in their coach as much as their best friend, spouse or therapist, 12% confide in their coach more than anyone else.

An article in Public Management revealed a study where training alone was compared to life coaching combined with training. The study showed that training alone increased productivity by 22.4% while training combined with weekly life coaching increased productivity by 88%. Here is why:

1) Accountability. Most life coaches have three calls a month with their clients. This regularly scheduled call prompts clients to get more done than they would if left to their own devices. Think about it, if you work out with a personal trainer at the gym, you work much harder than on your own. Clients take bigger actions, set bigger goals and think bigger when they work with a professional coach.

2) Expertise. The trained life coach knows how to help you set the right goals, make more money, and structure your personal and professional life to achieve greater productivity with less effort. You’ll achieve more in less time with the input of an accredited Life Coach on your side.

3) Delivery. A well-trained coach knows how to use the right words so that you are naturally motivated. It doesn’t take brow-beating or nagging when you are working with a skilled life coach. Coaching typically works best with a weekly call so clients have time to integrate new ways of thinking and take action each week toward their goals. Most life coaching is done by phone and delivered in half hour to one hour coaching calls. The experience is challenging and uplifting. You’ll look forward to your weekly calls with your life coach. 

4) Speed. Most people find that things start to happen very quickly after hiring a life coach.

 

Who works with a Life Coach?

Everyone! Entrepreneurs, executives, business leaders, actors, musicians, creative people, managers, small business owners, start-ups, professionals and home-makers all reach their goals with the help of a life coach. If there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be, there is room for life coaching. As your life coach, not only will I help you close the gap, I will help you break through your limited beliefs and challenge you to think bigger.
