What is a life coach?
A life coach can help you overcome life's challenges, whether you want to change careers, build superior human relationships, or improve your health and wellness.
According to the International Coach Federation in a survey of 210 coaching clients who had been coach for an average of nine months, 98.5% of the respondents to their study on coaching, stated that their coaching sessions were valuable. At least 62% of the respondents confide in their coach at least as much as they confide in their spouse, their best friend, or their therapist.
Life coaching can improve all areas of your life including building better connections with your spouse or significant other, your children, wealth, health and fitness, and much more.
Why use a life coach
If you want to improve your life, health, or business, life coaching may be just right for you. Your life coach will treat you like you are the only person in the world, and who couldn't benefit from that? Don't we all like to be listened to? Don't we all relish speaking with someone who only wants to hear what we have to say.
Everyone is cost conscious today. They wonder if they can afford to hire a life coach. The more appropriate question, is can they afford not to - especially if they want to take their life's work and achievements to the next level.
People who have worked with life coaches, according to the survey I referenced above, experienced higher levels of self-awareness, smarter goal-setting, a more balanced life, and lower levels of stress, among many other benefits. They have more self-confidence, enhanced communications skills, and more fun.
