What is Life Coaching and how does it work?

We have heard about cricket coach and swimming coach. Who is this life coach and why do we need them??

Life coaches teach us how to live our lives properly. They help us to meet goals in our personal and business spheres and guide us in the right direction. Here the methods vary from person to person, as each individual is unique.

In the days of joint families, this was done by the grandparents, uncles, cousins, and elders in the family. In the present days of nuclear families of a single child and both parents being busy, many youngsters are confused without proper help and guidance. Life coaching is just a professional extension of that help.

Life coaching is a form of counseling...to help people solve their problems and achieve ambitions. Life coaching will be conducted as a series of sessions based on the gravity of the situation, over telephone, e-mails or through face-to-face sessions. The more personal kind of life coaching is done face-to-face and aims at helping people solve their problems and achieve their ambitions.

Life coaches help people make clear decisions and leave their negative beliefs of failure and instill faith in them about themselves boosting their confidence. Life coaches will be specialists in many fields like relationships, marriage, career, family, and finances. The bottom line is that by working with a coach, you can set better goals and reach them faster than if you tried to reach them under your own steam.
