A Life coaches job is to take those goals that a client wants to achieve on and help them make a reality of, um, a life coach even helps the client figure out what their goals are in the first place. Essentially, a life coach is a professional person who is well versed in several motivational and goal oriented behavioral methods. They use their skill and expertise to help people change the things in their lives that make them unhappy. The specifics off the goal are not us all that important as long as it could be broken down and defined according to one of the proven models, it can, in principle, be achieved. Life coaches are partners on the client's journey. We are there to motivate them when their energy gets low and to provide valuable third party perspective when they can't see obvious and sometimes not so obvious Next steps on their path to reaching their goal. Life coaches themselves are off course, not perfect. They also have their failings and shortcomings. But being a successful life coach doesn't mean that you have a trouble free life and have everything figured out. As long as you can help someone commit to the work necessary to make a change in their lives, then you can do the job. Life coaches are almost universally entrepreneurs. The burden is on them to find, work and sustain a business based on providing life coaching services. This means that a successful life coach must not only master the art of life coaching itself, but must be an effective marketer, a consultant on and a business manager. Competition in this profession is tough, but if you can establish yourself, the possible financial rewards are substantial. In this Internet age, there is also a world of possibilities for life coaches who can develop a strong personal browned and create online content that will either draw in clients or become a source of revenue by themselves and preferably both. This means that a modern life coach were also need to understand Internet marketing on the role of social media in growing their business 2. Diversity as a Coach: generally traditional life coaching consists of complementary consultations followed by regular support sessions. Some of these sessions may be face to face, but the majority unlikely to be via phone, Skype or email. However, someone looking to build a flourishing, sustainable coaching business may also find themselves performing minor variations on the core process of life coaching. On a 1 to 1 basis, for example, you may provide short seminars two groups of people who have shorter 1 to 1 sessions but have thumb with a greater number and variety of clients. What's like coaching looks like is not something that is set in stone but rather an area of constant development where all that matters is Theo. Effective achievement off the client skulls in this course thes are exactly skills will be learning. After you've completed the course, you will be firmly on your way to establishing yourself as a professional life coach, ready to get out in the world and make a difference to someone else in the next section. Well, look at what it takes personally to be a great life coach is being a life coach the right career for you. Let's move on to the next video to find out more 3. Is Being A Life Coach Right For Me : in this lecture will be looking at the attributes a good life coach is expected to have, and what sorts of skills and background will be helpful to the aspiring coat. As I mentioned in the introduction, you don't need to be a perfect human specimen in order to be a life coach. But you do, however, need a generally positive outlook, a good head on your shoulders, on Duthie, ability and willingness to learn quickly and to be adaptable. A good life coach has an analytical mind and enjoys solving problems at the same time, they have a strong, empathetic side as well. It's important that a life coach can, to one extent or another, put themselves in the shoes of their client to understand their view of a gold or challenges. They face a life coach, listens to the client and works around their needs and their values, not those that the life coach believes may be right. It isn't a life coaches job to judge people for what they want, only to help people achieve what they want or to figure it out in the first place. In other words, to be a life coach to be a great life coach requires that you have the patience and understanding while still being able to assert yourself in order to keep the client motivated and working towards their goals. It's not easy to really care about other people's girls, and it is practically impossible to feign interest in them. Pure professionalism on the fact that you are being paid are not even enough to keep you sincerely engaged with a coaching crying. This means that if you want to be a great life coach and set yourself apart from your competitors, you should have a genuine, interesting people. As a coach, your primary concern is for the well being of your clients. You play the role of a true friend for the time that you are needed. You care about the things the crime does. If you aren't honestly interested in the lives of others, then coaching may not be a good fit for you. What the life of a coach comes down to is being a ladder for the ambitions of others. Your clients are not a means by which you reach greater heights. Rather, you must be the giants upon whose shoulders they stand in the end. What really matters is that you can be satisfied in doing the good work of helping others do great works. You have to be the Mr Miyagi to the Karate Kid, the Mickey to their rocky. It takes a very specific type of personality to be that person. But if you feel that this is you, then you can be a truly great life coach. 4. I'm A Coach, Not A Therapist: Now we're going to look at the difference between a life coach Andi, a therapist. These are two roles this people often confuse with each other. For one reason or another. This is completely understandable as broadly the jobs that's life coaches and psychotherapists to can be similar people go to both with a specific life problem, and both then tried to help their clients overcome that to issue the situation is further modeled by the fact that many psychologists also practiced life coaching. If your therapists looking to get into life coaching, this can be a pretty tricky line to Trent. One reason for this is that there are, in fact, many places that coaches and therapists overlap with one another many of the rules that each need to pay all the same, they both need to be teacher's guides on DFA, Sillitoe Taters, among other things. Both coaches and therapists are usually resolutely kind centered. They both wants to help the kind achieve their desires. They both strived to build partnerships and collaborate with their clients rather than dictates. To them, coaches and psychologists aimed to help their clients build their own solutions rather than simply telling them what to do. Further similarities involved a high standard of ethical conduct. Crying, confidentiality, Andi professionalism. Coaches and therapists only practice within the scope of their professions and knowledge and know when to refer people to other kinds of professionals when they reach their limits . On a practical level, there are obvious differences that you may already have imagined to one degree or another. And speaking of degrees, one of the most obvious differences comes from the fact that psychotherapists are registered professionals. In most countries, this means that they need a certain minimum education. Usually this entails a master's or doctorate in counseling, psychology or clinical psychology. On top of this, they are often legally required to belong to a professional body. In order to practice. Should they fail to practice with a license, they could face hefty fines. Being a psychotherapist is therefore what is known as a regulated profession. Coaching, on the other hand, is largely deregulated. There are, of course, differences between the laws of different nations, so be sure to become familiar with what local laws have to say in this regard. There are professional bodies in some countries that to make it their business to train and register coaches. But as far as we know, no country has yet made the profession off life coach a protected one that has a prescribed professional body on mandatory licensing to practice. Basically, what this means is that anyone can call themselves a life coach, and it's entirely possible that two people who are both self described life coaches use completely different methods. 5. How Can I Tell If My Client Needs Therapy, Rather Than Coaching : It's very important that clients do not come to you as a coach when what we need is actually a Serapis. It's important to help potential clients understand as soon as possible what it is there's a coach will do for them and what a therapist would. A professional coach has an obligation to refer someone to the rights type of service provider. It is also of top importance that you, as a coach have a perfectly clear idea off what your role is. Andi, that you do not attempt to do a therapist job. So how can you tell if your clients should be seeing a professional therapist in addition to or instead of you? There are a number of signs that she should be aware off. The client does a lot of venting in sessions rather than focusing on the business at hand. The client may be touchy and emotional. When you provide constructive criticism, the current becomes defensive or sensitive in a way that goes beyond a reasonable level. The current shows extreme anxiety in the face of change. The client cannot move on from certain issues. The current has extreme strategies to avoid talking about certain topics. The client does not complete homework and does not speak openly. The client cannot keep the relationship with you a professional one. If any of these signs come up, it's maybe time to gently but firmly recommend that your client have therapy sessions in the next section. We're going to go over the basic skills of coaching so that they're fresh in your mind before discussing more advanced models and method. 6. Fundamental Differences: the fundamental differences between therapy and coaching really comes down to the underlying world view of each approach. Coaching is an educational directive approach. Psychological therapy, on the other hand, is an extension off the medical model. In other words, the basic premise is that there is some sort of pathology or mental illness. A life coach doesn't look at their client as someone who is sick. But as someone who simply needs to unlock their potential, something the coach needs to help the client sincerely believe as well. Coaching is about helping people explore themselves and gaining self knowledge. In syrupy, we are roughened, trying to heal wound rather than grow. Once again. Sometimes thes things do overlap, but that is usually incidental. It is the intent of the approach that really matters. Finally, coaching is more concerned with concrete things like goals, motivation, behaviour and the present time. Therapy tends to look for emotional issues, even historical sources of problems on and have a stronger focus on the past. Of course, there are many different types of therapeutic models, just as there are different coaching ones. The's broad differences are, however, generally true. One psychotherapy approach, known as cognitive behavioral therapy actually has more in common with coaching models. Well, at least on a surface level. CBT is also concerned with the present issues, motivations and changing behaviour, not asking you about your childhood or your relationship with your mother, for example. So as you can see, once you delve below the surface, the difference between coaching and therapy become strikingly obvious.
