We all are familiar with the term ‘coaching’. Athletes, entrepreneurs, business leaders, CEO’s or Actors would not be as successful without the exceptional and continuous coaching done by their coaches.
Coaching is vital in every field. However, we often find people neglect the need for coaching in their personal lives. Life Coaching can help in getting more clarity, building healthy relationships, personal growth, getting rid of limiting beliefs or behaviours, leaving old habits that are not serving well, promote career growth, and every other aspect of life.
A Life coach is a professional, trained to help you maximize your full potential and make you reach your desired results through powerful coaching questions, self-awareness, increased self-love, self-confidence and using your full potential. They observe and help you become aware of the status quo, identify your limiting beliefs and other potential challenges and obstacles you may face consciously or subconsciously. They can also help to identify your goals and create a blue-print to achieve them.
A Life Coach keeps an accountability check on your progress and encourages you to reach your goal by helping you in tackling the obstacles in your journey.
By focusing on your unique skills, motivation drivers and strengths they help you to create a custom plan of action with sustainable habits to help you achieve your desired results. They help you to become a better version of yourself during your coaching journey by consistently practicing, making efforts and sticking to the action plan. The life coach also prepares you to become self-reliant and internally motivated to continue your life long journey of growth.
A Life-coach is trained to identify the root of your needs and desires in life by asking the right questions and breaking down the real concern.A life coach can become the bridge between your current circumstances and the life/ goals/ dreams you would like to lead/ accomplish/ fulfill.
Many people also seek out life coaches for guidance in navigating significant life changes related to personal emotions, irregular outbursts, frustration, stagnation or sadness. Some also reach out for the start of a new career, promotions, resolve workplace conflicts, focus on personal growth or improve professional life in general.
In most cases, people seek help from life coaches to build a pleasant and more meaningful life. Life-coaching is distinct and should not be confused with advising, consulting, counseling, mentoring or therapy. A Life coach can help with specific professional or personal concerns, transitions or significant life changes and personal development goals.
You can have one to one sessions in-person as well as virtually as per your requirement and convenience. Life coaches generally customise their coaching to your specific concerns to address and build a sustainable action plan. Each coaching engagement is different because of the difference in needs, receptivity and transformation.
A Life Coach can help you build self-belief. They are curious, passionate and positive in their approach to help their clients. They listen empathetically to understand your concerns, without judgement and ask questions to co-create a solution. They are non-opinionated, free from biases and are non-judgemental. There are many benefits of working with a life coach such as you can have better work/life balance, enhance creativity and productivity, and you can have a more satisfying work and personal life.
You can also eliminate long held fears, habits, patterns and anxiety from your life. You can experience stronger relationships with friends and family.
