Here are some of the most common Life Coaching FAQ and the answers.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is an ongoing relationship of respect and trust, which helps clients take action toward the realization of their visions, goals, and desires. Coaching uses a process of inquiry and personal discovery to develop a client’s awareness, initiative, and responsibility. It also involves problem solving, strategic planning, action steps, and motivation.
What is the role of a coach?
The coach’s role is to provide support, facilitation, feedback, and challenge. Life Purpose coaches also know how to work with people psychologically and spiritually and understand the overall process of discovering and manifesting one’s life purpose. My purpose is to help you discover important truths about yourself and manifest them in the world. I will never push an agenda on you; we create a path together that is meaningful and rewarding.
What is the Life Purpose Coaching process?
Life Purpose Coaching helps you explore the depths of your psyche using reflective inquiry and guided meditation to discover your life purpose. When needed, a Life Purpose coach can help you work through psychological blocks that are holding you back from progressing.
How does it work/look?
The base coaching is four 45 minute phone sessions per month. Phone charges are included in your coaching fee, regardless of where you live in the world. This is supplemented by email coaching at no extra charge, plus the occasional “power coaching call” (5 minutes) as required. You take on as much homework/homeplay as you choose, and most of the learning/growth/action/results happen between the calls.
I’m not interested in replacing what you would do on your own. I want to add to what you would do on your own.
Who are my clients?
Basically, people ready to make changes in their life, and/or to really go for what they want. My clients are normally successful in many areas of their life, but there might be one or two that are not up to scratch. Or – they are ready for more self-awareness – can you ever be too aware?
My clients are both men and women, normally in the 35 to 60 age range. Mainly professionals. And a lot of people wanting help with relationship issues. Some small business owners whose businesses are expanding, and executives looking to create a bigger game to play or to get more balance in their life.
What does coaching provide?
This is different for each client. Most often I hear words like: challenge, accountability, direction, inspiration, focus, sounding board, support and validation. Some people want someone else to share the wins with. Others request a firm kick up the butt “he he he”. But the bottom line is, we’re normally after a specific result that makes a *difference* in your life. And above all – let’s have fun with it!
Do you have any Specialties?
I mostly work with:
A) Entrepreneurs wanting to improve, or start, their own small business.
B) Sales Executives and managers ready to make changes in their business or personal life.
C) Relationship coaching– mainly divorce issues and roadblocks created by divorce.
How long would we work together?
Some people are done in 3 months, and others are looking for 1-2 year partnerships. We’ll normally start with a 3-6 month time frame. I simply suggest my clients stay with me as long as they love the coaching, and the results!
What if I decide not to finish the coaching term?
If at some point during the coaching you’re not getting value, we’ll both know it. You may cease coaching at the end of any four week cycle, and get a full refund for the unused portion. You would then be charged at the normal monthly rate for the coaching you have used (divide the three monthly fee by three, and add 25%), rather than the discounted rate.
