Life coaching is a career and ethical profession. This profession uses the power of commitment to empower clients to achieve realistic goals in all areas of their lives. Thus life coaching is a holistic process that has the ability to create a balanced life. It creates a proactive approach in which 75% of the action plan comes from the client, thus a Life coach guides and teaches the client to find the right answers and gets results.
The main role of the Life Coach is to empower the client and helps them in all aspects of their life such as your career/job, wealth, health, relationships, friends and family, hobbies and interests, or spirituality. The strength and skill of Life coaching is not about giving advice BUT allowing the clients to find answers for themselves. It is about removing obstacles and encouraging clients to go beyond perceived barriers and dreams.
I like to use the SMART model of goal making which is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound. Life coaching concentrates on the present and future situation only and not your past and usually requires a commitment of 3 to 4 months for appointments.
