HOW DO I FIND A GOOD LIFE OR CAREER COACH?

HOW DO I FIND A GOOD LIFE OR CAREER COACH?

A good life, career or executive coach has to learn from an extensive and successful personal life, career and business experience in order to be able to help others. A good coach has to be teachable and continuously work on himself/herself to develop more and better skills. A good coach must have a mentor at all times because when you’re playing the game (life), is hard to think of everything.

A good career or life coach has to have great coaching experience and have successfully worked with other clients in your field that had similar mindsets. A good life coach has to love people and show that by going the extra mile just to make sure you can reach your goals.

A good coach has to be successful, not for the money, but for the person that he/she becomes during their journey to success.

IMPORTANT!
Life, career and business experience cannot be taught in any seminars or schools, therefore the best life, career and executive coaches of all time have never held or pursued any coaching certificates.

Therapy and coaching are completely different. While therapy deals with the past, life coaching deals with the present and future, helping people develop personally and become the person that needs to become in order to reach his/her goals.

WHAT DOES A LIFE COACH DO EXACTLY?

WHAT DOES A LIFE COACH DO EXACTLY?

A good life coach helps people to achieve what they cannot on their on, exactly like a sports coach helps athletes win championships. A life coach is using his/her life and business experience, natural born skills, education and relationships to help you change your sabotaging paradigms and rewire your mind to become the person that you need to become in order to discover your passion, if needed, and reach your personal and professional goals and dreams.

The difference between a life coach and a good life coach is his/her life and business experience, accomplishments, natural born coaching talent and skills, education and relationships. But the difference between a good life coach and a great life coach is a very strong intuition, which is more important in coaching than experience, and that cannot be learned from any seminars or books. If a life coach has all those qualities and a strong intuition, there is no tell what positive impact can have on your personal and professional life.

In sports, as well as in life or any industry, unfortunately not all coaches are skilled enough. A good coach will definitely have higher fees, but working with one should help you get back a lot more than what you’ve invested. Of course, there are many situations when a coach has higher fees and is not skilled enough.

HOW IS A LIFE COACH DIFFERENT FROM A THERAPIST?

HOW IS A LIFE COACH DIFFERENT FROM A THERAPIST?

Coaching, therapy and meditation are all completely different by definition. A therapist or psychologist deals with emotions related to past problems in order to help people move forward, while a life coach mentors people first in order to become the person that they need to be to reach their goals, than helps build an action plan and guides every step of the way until the goals are reached. A good life coach has a high EQ, not only IQ, and offers emotional support, motivation and inspiration to properly fuel one’s journey.

A life coach is completely different from a therapist or psychologist, therefore you need to decide first if you need help to forgive and move on from your past problems, or you need to find your passion and work with a life coach to help develop, plan and take action to reach your goals and live a more fulfilled life.

Life coaching is not covered by medical insurance because it is an investment in your future, in your personal development and education, same like school, but it is meant to help you accomplish more in life.

Therapy is covered by medical insurance because it deals with psychological conditions caused by past problems, and in most cases medication is required.
