questions may crop up in coachee's mind
How good is life coaching for me?
Why do I need someone to tell me how to lead my life?
How would I listen to someone what they think I should do that would really help me?
Am I not capable of being my best self on my own?
What difference someone else will make in my life other than what I make by myself?
These are some of the questions that many people have been asking themselves and have contributed to a misunderstanding of what life coaching is, how it works, and how it can help people find out what drives them and apply it to create a better and more fulfilling life.
First and foremost, Life coaching is not Therapy or Counseling.
It’s not even a mentorship, in which a professional is made to interact with a more experienced professional.
Life coaching is also different from a training relationship, where a teacher or trainer agrees to share his/her knowledge or skills with a client for a short period of time.
Life coaching can help fill in the gaps in our life journey=personal or professional, and clarify the path- from where we are now to where we want to be.
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It’s helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”– Timothy Gallwey
