From this article, you will learn that life coaching is not only a profession, but also a lifestyle of successful people. What requests do people turn to a specialist and why does the work take so long, why does the Western approach not work for us? You will also get an answer to the question of what nuances coaches do not take into account when working with clients.
What is the basis of the work of a life coach and a client
The main task of a life coach is to help a person in his self-development, using the potential of a person and his internal resources. And this means that there is work to be done on the internal state of a person, increasing his self-worth and self-esteem, self-confidence, necessary to achieve the desired result. Therefore, in the first introductory session, the life coach clarifies the client's request and determines whether this technology is suitable for the client. That is, whether a person is ready to take responsibility for changing his life, to work on himself in order to get the desired result with the support of a life coach. And most importantly, whether a person is ready to invest time and money in his development, and whether he is ready to work on himself.
It is one thing to want to change the situation, to change yourself, and another thing to act. Many people prefer words to deeds. That is why they do not achieve their intended goals. Therefore, the main work in this consultation does not take place during the session itself, as many people think, but between sessions. At coaching sessions, only the vector (direction) of the client's step-by-step movement towards the goal is determined. And the movement itself or the actions that lead to the result are carried out by the client between coaching sessions.
This can be the study of any information, specific steps according to the plan, analysis of your behavior strategies, gradual change in habits, observation of your emotions, asking yourself motivating and promoting questions, developing new models of conscious behavior, working out limiting beliefs, and much more that promotes a person in his personal development.
