Life Coaches are Coaching Performance and Success

If someone mentioned coaching performance and success, you would usually think of athletic coaches or business coaches. Athletic coaches works towards individual and team performance so they can achieve team success; business coaches work with managers to elevate employee performance so team (company) success can be attained.

But coaching performance and success isn’t just for sports and business coaches – it is also for life coaches.

A Life Coach is a Performance Coach

A performance coach works with clients to help them discover their talents, and assists them with finding the best ways to put those talents to use. They identify goals and help clients find the best route to the attainment of those goals – through coaching performance that leads to success. This is exactly what a life coach does – coaches performance.

What Influences Performance?

There are many things that influence performance – and a life coach can help with all of them. Here are a few things for which a life coach can help:

  • Stress management
  • Confidence
  • Motivation
  • Work/life balance
  • Healthy and positive relationships
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Communication skills
  • Time management
  • Goal identification and clarification
  • Wealth and health coaching
  • Organizational skills

A life coach is all about performance and success.

Coaching Performance to Reach Success.

Success means different things to different people, and people hire life coaches for many different reasons; whatever type of success you are seeking, a life coach can help. For some people success is happiness and contentment; for others, it means reaching the top of a chosen field. For some, success means finding the intersection between passion and career; for others, it means organizing and simplifying life.

But reaching your definition of success usually means following a plan to get there, a plan that is often created with the help of life coaching – this plan must be performed and put into place to reach your goals.

The equation for success: Identification of goals + creation of plan + performance = Success!

How a Life Coach Coaches Performance

A life coach does many things to get clients to perform. A life coach offers support, guidance, motivation, inspiration, accountability, and assessment. A life coach can serve as a shoulder to cry on and a sounding board for your ideas and achievements. A life coach is not a friend, but is a partner in your success.

All Coaches are Performance Coaches

Many coaches advertise themselves as performance coaches – most of these specialize in some type of business or career coaching. However, every coach is a performance coach, especially life coaches. Coaches work with you to identify your goals, overcome obstacles to reaching these goals, and create a road map to attain these goals.

Just like a sports coach who develops and provides the team with a game plan so they can go out onto the field or court and perform at a high level, a life coach will help you create your own game plan so you can elevate your life to a higher level. Now that’s what I call coaching performance!
