5 Reasons to Work With a Personal Coach

A coach can help when you feel stuck or are unhappy with the career path that you have chosen.

If you love what you are doing a coach can help you take that next step. It does not matter if you are stuck or love what you do a personal coach can help you decide what you want, put together a plan and work with you to achieve your desired outcome.

Health is often a big issue, by health I do not mean how fit you are I mean do you eat well, do you sleep well, and do you take any physical exercise. Very often people join a gym, or start a diet only to give up after a short space of time. A personal coach can help you identify the reason why you want to make a change, discuss the best options for you and introduce tools and strategies to keep you on track.

Some say that the world is a financial nightmare, you might agree, but let me ask you a little question. Do you have too much month at the end of the money? By this I mean do you run out of money every month before the month end and before your next paycheck is due. Some people are unable to pay off their credit cards each month, borrow every year to take a holiday or buy Christmas presents and are still paying off the loan the next time a holiday or Christmas comes around. A personal coach can help you get your finances back on track, reduce financial stress and help you achieve a better financial lifestyle.

Confidence, self-esteem how is yours right now? How do you feel when you walk into a room do you just sneak in and hope nobody notices that you are there? Do you feel that you can talk with the partner about the things that really bother you and if you were unhappy at home or work do you feel able to have a conversation and say why? A personal coach can help you build confidence and self-esteem and help you achieve things that you thought were not possible.

They say we can choose our friends but we cannot choose our family. How is your relationship with your family, do you wish they were better, what about your children, are they hard work, never doing what you want. Do you wish that you could spend more time with your partner and children and really enjoy great times, great relationships. Working with a coach can help you make the changes that you desire.

Just like athletes and sports people who work with a coach to help them achieve sporting success a personal coach can you help you step up and enjoy the life you want.

Online Coaching

Get the most out of your online coaching sessions by coming prepared with questions and be ready to discuss thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Determine what you would like to discuss and accomplish. Your sessions are opportunities to address strengths and weaknesses and identify your best values. During sessions your coach will discuss and look at options to implement in future plans. Session times may vary depending on your personal schedule. They can be a half hour to an hour a few days a week or a month. Online coaching allows you extra confidence as we will visit you where ever you want, via Skype.

Your first session will serve as an introduction which will allow the coach to learn about you and what you want to accomplish. The coach may ask questions about what you want to change or develop either in your personal or business life. When educating the coach about yourself you may talk about your past and how it has affected your current living scenario. From here you’ll work on structuring today and create plans for the future. Share what areas you want to improve such as time management, planning ahead, or learning to relax. As you become more comfortable with your coach you’ll learn to integrate and apply life coach training to daily living.

Sessions may have a specific topic or agenda to keep communication focused and on point. Areas of discussion include improving self esteem to boost confidence, taking responsibility to empower self and others (promote accountability), handling emotions and how to manage them, concentrating your energy and focus to handle interruptions easily, and taking on different perspectives to problems. Other session topics include identifying patterns and issues by addressing problems one issue at a time. Discuss habits you want to change; maybe you want to prepare for an upcoming event. Be open about relationships with family members and friends.

Online coaching sessions will help you develop and use skills in daily living and how to use them more effectively to improve your life. You’ll be working to create a legacy for family and others. Emphasise what values are important to you. Your life coach can help you identify your most critical values. Learn to set boundaries, say “no,” and negotiate outcomes. Eliminate tolerations (things you keep putting up with) which hinder values from being stated. Examine and expand boundaries; know that you don’t have to limit yourself from what you want to accomplish. Online coaching will give you a better understanding about yourself. Having a deeper understanding inspires insights.

Sessions are tailored to fit your personal needs. Overtime you’ll define purpose, implement solutions to challenges, achieve goals and fulfillment, enhance personal strengths and restore confidence, develop skills to bring out the best in you, and identify opportunities. At each session you’ll review your actions and progress. Online coaching can help in getting you out of the comfort zone when making changes allowing you to be come more productive. Communication and listening are key necessities. Talking and sharing information thoroughly and taking time to listen carefully will make sessions highly effective.
