Life coaches are dime-a-dozen these days, so how do you find the right coach for you?
Investing in life coaching is a big decision and you want to get it right! Here are 8 qualities to look for in a coach:
1. They are passionate
Passion is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days but a great coach is passionate about what they do. I believe wholeheartedly in the transformational power of coaching and am committed to helping you create a life overflowing with vitality and joy.
2. They are motivating, inspiring and positive (but not in a ‘good vibes only’ kinda way)
I truly believe that you are capable of greatness and I will hold that belief for you until you are ready to believe it too. I will be in your corner, celebrating your breakthroughs and wins every step of the way.
3. They are empowering
Coaching is NOT about telling you how to live your life. As a coach, I draw on a wealth of personal and professional experience in the wellness space. I may provide suggestions from time to time but I am not an expert on anyone else’s life and will never pretend to be. You are the expert and my role is to help you to tap into your own wisdom so you can move forward with grace and grit.
When you are empowered, your growth continues long after your coaching series is complete.
4. They are authentic
I show up with authenticity and integrity, and encourage you to do the same. I create a safe space so that, when you’re with me, you can drop the facade and be yourself.
5. They listen
A great coach is an outstanding communicator and understands the importance of listening. I listen to what is said… and what is left unsaid.
6. They are flexible and adaptable
When it comes to coaching, it’s not one-size-fits-all. The Beautiful You Life Coaching model is organised, systematic and goal-oriented to give you the best chance of success. But it’s not a cookie-cutter approach because you are unique and you deserve a coaching experience that is tailored to your individual needs and wants.
7. They focus on solutions, not problems
A great coach doesn’t shy away from difficult conversations. We will talk about issues, problems and concerns but, rather than dwell on the past, I’ll encourage you to look to the future and move beyond these challenges in a positive, proactive way. I will hold you accountable for your daily and weekly actions to maintain momentum as you move towards your goals.
8. They walk the talk!
I believe in the transformational power of coaching and am 100% committed to personal growth. Personal experience has shown me that I can tinker around on the surface all I like but it’s when I have the courage to dig deeper that magic happens!
Committing to a coaching series can be daunting – I’ve been there!
