The Beginner’s Guide to Tips
For life coaching to work, it is important for the coachee to be motivated to actually make changes in their lives and learn new lessons. However, it’s not about hand holding or scrutinizing the psyche objectively. The coach will provide constructive criticism and expect you to be accepting of change without being offended. Know their critiquing style. Because all of us respond to criticism in various ways, your potential life coach’s critiquing style and approach will be a crucial factor. Look for certifications, but place more importance on experience. It’s great for a life coach to have formal certifications and training, but these are not heart and soul of life coaching. In fact, experience and track record are equally important. Someone whose experience and education span decades is a smart choice. What ultimately matters is their actual experience with actual people who seek their coaching. In any case, if they claim to have certain credentials, don’t just take their word for it. Request proof. Understand the coach’s system of success measurement. Measurements of success may also be unique from one coach to the next. Ask how progress will be tracked and how the success of the service will be assessed. If a coach is unable to give a clear answer to this question, they may not be the best for you, especially if you want concrete results. Talk to candidates to determine your comfort level. Studies reveal the chemistry that exists between a coach and his client is vital to the success of the entire relationship. It is a must that you can trust and confide in your life coach. Good coaches can usually ease their clients into opening up without much effort; however, when you are very comfortable with someone right off the bat, your relationship is more likely going to be productive. Again, the only way to make an accurate assessment of this is to personally interview a prospective coach.
