What to Look For When Seeking a Life Coach

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, that person has it easy?” You probably are not alone. It is easy to look at another person’s life and think that they have it made. They seem to excel at everything and have had it all handed to them on a silver platter. But that is probably not the case.

 

They have to work at overcoming obstacles the same way that you do. Nothing ever comes that easy no matter whom you are. Everyone must break free from the easy path if they want to be a better, more motivated person.

 

A life coach is someone who is trained in the coaching process to help individuals cope with whatever problems that may be weighing them down and keeping them from succeeding. Take for example someone who is stuck in a rut at work and cannot find the motivation to break free from the rut and try for another position.

 

They want to move on but just do not have the motivation to do so. The career life coach will encourage the individual to achieve his or her goals and strive for more.

When looking for an effective coaching mentor for both life and business, it is important to look for a few qualities. The first quality is someone who is sympathetic to the problems of his or her clients. There has to be a rapport established.

 

This does not mean that the mentor will go easy on the person just because he or she is nice and wants to make friends. They must have a bond of respect and trust for the coaching relationship to work.

An important quality is time management. The mentor must set an example with his or her own life skills. If the mentor is having trouble keeping appointment times or seems to set expectations and give unreasonable goals, then he or she does not have the proper training needed for the job.

 

In fact, a life coach should not be setting goals or expectations at all. That is the client’s job and the coach is there to just help motivate the individual along their pathway to those particular aspirations.

 

One important thing to note: interview several coaches for the job. You should develop a relationship based on mutual respect and understanding. As well, the mentor should see your life goals as obtainable.
