Life coach training is often confused with counseling training. However, it is not counseling at all and offers a completely different experience. Here are five things you'll be able to help people with after life coach training.
1. Help people develop a clearer picture of themselves.
I thought I knew myself well. After all, I had lived with myself for my entire life. And yet, I had never paused to contemplate myself. So when I did, I was amazed at the discoveries. I clearly had predictable responses to life situations based on my strengths, weaknesses, traits, and tendencies.
Helping people gain a clearer picture of themselves through life coaching equips them to lead themselves well. It is the first step toward reaching personal and professional life goals.
2. Help people develop a clearer picture of their present situation.
Life coaching is not evaluating people's present situation. It is instead asking the right questions to help THEM evaluate their present situation. Where are they in their life journey and is that where they want to be? How do they distribute their limited commodity of time and is it going where they want it to go?
Life coaching spurs them to answer these kinds of questions. Their answers will become the foundation upon which they can build their desired future.
3. Help people develop a clearer picture of their desired future.
With a clear picture of themselves and their present situation, the clouds will begin to part and a clear picture of what they desire for themselves in the coming years will become visible. In two years, five years, and ten years, how do they imagine their relationships? Where will they be living? In what rewarding work will they be involved? What will their list of notable accomplishments include?
As a life coach, you will assist people as they define and articulate that desired future.
4. Help people develop a clearer picture of the path to their desired future.
Our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, said, "The best way to predict the future is to create it." Occasionally, great things happen in life by chance or luck. Most of the time, however, three things are required: hard work, determination, and intention. A plan must be pondered and formulated.
During life coach training, you will learn to walk with people as they set goals and action plans for a clear path to their desired future.
5. Help people develop a clearer picture of how they can help others reach their desired futures.
As people experience the positive effects of your life coaching, they will begin to notice the dreams of others and may find themselves thinking of ways to help others succeed. You have heard the saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Great satisfaction can be found, not only in personal success, but also in watching the successes of people that can be helped along the way.
