Life Coaching is not therapy, it is not counseling and it is not consulting although many physiologists, consultants and counselors are becoming trained and using coaching skills and technologies as a compliment to their practice. Here are some things to consider when becoming a Life Coach. What … [Read more...]

Become a Life Coach… Or a Better Coach

  How can you become a life coach…or a better coach? One thing you will have to do is to get out of your own comfort zone. Think contrast. If you listen to rock, go to watch an opera. If you love steak and potatoes, go to eat at a restaurant that serves raw vegan food. Does that sound too wild and crazy? Why not study a foreign language, then travel to a country that speaks that language and get to know the locals. Get out there and do something you’ve never done before, without … [Read more...]

Career Coach Training…investment strategy for the current economy?

  Could a career coach training be the best use of your investment money? Have you watched the stock market swing several hundred points up or down in a single day? Even the value investors have been blindsided. The equity in our homes is dropping, more and more companies are going out of business, and the commercial real estate industry is looking for bailout money. Not to mention the mess with the auto industry. It really makes me wonder, is there safe place to invest right now?   With … [Read more...]

Becoming a Life Coach… A Story About Winning

  When I think about becoming a life coach, I think about my high school cross country and track coach, David. At that time, I wanted to become a coach like him…although the thought of coaching the regular PE classes and teaching remedial math did not appeal to me. I could tell those aspects of his job probably made him want to pull out his hair, because it was obvious to me that his passion was coaching.   When I wrote about the subject, “What is a Life Coach?, in a previous article, I wrote … [Read more...]

Leadership Training and Coaching Changes the World

Leadership Training and Coaching: 5 steps to Success

  How can leadership training and coaching get me from A to B, once I decide where B is?   It starts with… 1. INTEREST. A thought of what might be. This is where most people begin and end. We might talk about it, but there is no emotional drive or action taking place. It’s like a typical motivational or training seminar, where we come home and continue our life as it has always been. UNLESS, you are one of the fortunate few to become… 2. DISSATISFIED: Now we’re talking…or … [Read more...]

Leadership Training and Coaching… How Can it Get Me to the Next Level?

  Leadership training and coaching programs provide people with training in the areas of commitment, leadership, and communication skills, as well as the practical coaching for putting them into effective practice. As leaders, we must go first. As leaders, we are watched and judged. Are we following through with our own commitments, or are we merely telling others what to do? As leaders, if we are inconsistent with our commitments, coaching can support and reinforce us in our … [Read more...]

Coaching Skills Series: The JOLT Technique

There are many coaching schools that teach concepts of integrity and accountability. In fact many coaching schools teach coaching skills that help you to become a coach that knows WHAT to do to become more fullfilled, powerful, and successful.   However, the biggest problem I find with new coaches that are trying to build a coaching practice (especially the ones that I meet in my coaches training) is not knowing what to do, but rather getting clients to DO what they ALREADY KNOW TO … [Read more...]
