What is life coaching?

The life coaching process is the only human improvement process that focuses completely on YOU! Life coaches are equal partners who assist you to improve and grow as a person who achieves their goals. Life coaches turn you into a World Leading Expert on YOU! Coaches also assist you in executing the actions necessary in achieving your goals. You have virtual control over the results you achieve through coaching, because you set the coaching goals, and the coaching process assures you achieve them.

Why see a life coach?

By making an appointment with a coach, youre committing to achieving your personal, spiritual, family, and business goals much more effectively, more efficiently, and more completely. Life coaches assist you in: overcoming obstacles and fears, focusing on solutions, bouncing off ideas, and discovering truths about yourself. In addition, they facilitate helping you accomplish more than you thought possible and achieve balance in your personal, work, and family lives. Your coach will help you tap into your greatest potential, becoming the person you always wanted to be and are capable of becoming.

How does life coaching work for you?

Your coach will focus his or her full energy and attention on you achieving your goals. Your coach serves as the totally objective, nonjudgmental, supportive mirror into whom you really are and what you really want to do. Your coach will provide life options, new perspectives, encouragement, and concentrated attention giving you the insight, and confidence, to take life-improving actions towards your goals. They assist in identifying your self-imposed obstacles and further guide you towards overcoming them to reaching your goals.

How to maximize the rewards you receive through life coaching.

The life coaching process works exceptionally well at improving your life, business, relationships, and work. But like anything else, life coaching works best under the right conditions.

How will you know when it is time to stop coaching?

You can stop coaching after achieving your coaching goals. However, many people continue the coaching process to achieve new, loftier goals or as maintenance.

Why is life coaching valuable?

The value of the goals you achieve greatly exceeds the cost of coaching. You set your coaching goals most valuable and important to you.

There are also other, hidden benefits of coaching frequently worth more than the value of the goals achieved. The benefits from improving as a person are priceless such as reducing or eliminating your life stresses, improving your attitude about life, improving your relationships with others, etc.

How will you know if you have coachable goals?

A coachable goal is a future you envision for yourself which requires personal growth or improvement to reach. Coachable goals always involve moving forward in your life and refrain from reviewing past events.

Some examples of coachable goals are:

Discover and obtain your Ideal Income Position,

Transform your relationships; let go of anger issues

Overcome living your life with chronic stress,

Become a more Productive and Successful Business Owner,

and much, much more!

You have total control over your degree of readiness to reap full rewards from coaching. You determine the degree of your readiness when you positively answer the following questions:

1. How committed are you to achieving your goal(s)?

2. How willingly do you accept new perspectives?

3. Are you willing to invest something of value in yourself?

4. How committed are you to follow the actions you and your coach uncover to achieve your goal(s)

What is the Gift of Coaching?

Coaches have the Gift of Coaching when they naturally care more about others than themselves. Coaches with the gift place the success of their clients first and completely, because their ego, their intuition, their passions, and their personal values revolve around assisting others.

How long do coaching sessions last?

Your coaching sessions lastapproximately 45-60 minutes.

What are the different types of life coaching?

The life coaching profession encompasses a whole array of different types of specialized coaching. The specific titles signify the different fields of life in which coaches concentrate. However, the coaching done under each label can and does frequently crossover from one field to another. Some of the more recognizable specialties of life coaching are shown below.

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of being. John Wooden

What good is life coaching? Why do I need someone to tell me how to live my life? How would listening to someone else talk about what they think I should do really help me? Am I not capable of being my best self on my own?

These are some of the questions that many people have been asking themselves and has 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.

If this description of life coaching sounds like it could benefit just about anybody, its because it can. Life coaching is not therapy or counseling, which pairs a mental health professional with a client who may be struggling with an illness or disability.

Its not mentorship, in which a professional is paired with a more experienced professional. Life coaching is also distinct from a training relationship, where a teacher or trainer agrees to share their knowledge or skills with a client for a short period of time.

Life coaching can help fill in the gaps in our master plans and clarify the path from where we are to where we want to be. It is a partnership between the life coach and the client designed to help the client explore their options, focus on their goals, and create a personalized action plan.

Life coaches do not give their clients a list of boxes to tick or a strict set of steps to follow, rather they aim to help their clients discover their own motives and goals, and aid them in finding the best path towards them.

The Positive Psychology Toolkit

Become a Science-Based Practitioner!

The Positive Psychology toolkit is a science-based, online platform containing 135+ exercises, activities, interventions, questionnaires, assessments and scales.

Life coaching is not for the faint-hearted.

Its a career path that allows you to put your skills to use helping others, facilitating their personal and professional growth. The range of problems, challenges, and goals that clients bring to coaches is so vast, it would take an entire article just to list them all.

With such a broad range of practice, there are many skills and tools that a life coach must have in order to be successful. In this piece, we provide 40 exercises, tools, and tips for effective life coaching, plus links to other resources that may prove useful.

Read on to see if there are any exercises or tools that you can apply to your practice!

Coaching is unlocking a persons potential to maximize their own performance. Its helping them to learn rather than teaching them. Timothy Gallwey

There are numerous tools in the life coachs toolbox, and each life coach will likely have their own tools, exercises, and methods. However, there are some tools that have so much potential, they would be at home in almost any coachs practice.

One of the life coachs most valuable and versatile tools is the Wheel of Life. Its a simple and easy-to-use exercise that can help clients find out which areas of their lives are most satisfying and where they would like to focus attention on improving their quality of life (The Coaching Tools Company, 2012).

There are only two steps to this exercise:

1) Review the 8 categories on the wheel and think about what would represent a satisfying life in each area:

2) Draw a line across each segment that best represents the current level of satisfaction, with the center of the wheel equal to 0 and the edge of the wheel equal to 10, the maximum level of satisfaction.

The end result looks a bit like a spider web and can give your client a general idea of their overall life satisfaction in relation to their desired life satisfaction.

You can find the Wheel of Life exercise and download a copy for yourself here. For more information on how you can use the Wheel of Life, check out this article.

One of the many ways that we tend to get off track or bogged down while striving towards our goals relates to our spheres of influence. The idea behind the spheres of influence tool is that there are three distinct areas we can sort the comings and goings of life into:

While we may feel like there is nothing under our control at times, there is always at least one thing we have direct control over ourselves. Even when we are under enormous pressure or when we feel trapped, we always have at least some level of control over our attitude and our behavior.

The second area is that of factors we can influence. We do not have direct control over these factors, but we can put our effort into pushing them in the right direction. For instance, while we cannot control others attitudes or behavior, we can offer them advice, guidance, or provide evidence to help them make good decisions.

The final area is things that we have no control or influence over. This is the largest area since the majority of what happens around us is not under our direct control. A good life coach will help his or her clients to recognize and accept that there is much we cannot control, but will also help them to find opportunities to effect change through taking control or influencing that which is within their reach.

Life coaches can walk their clients through the spheres, helping them identify what is within their control, what is in their sphere of influence, and what cannot be controlled. To read more about this tool, plus learn how clients can apply the lessons learned to their work, click here.

Keeping a journal can be useful for many different reasons, including as a life coaching exercise. Daily journaling facilitates reflection and can spark useful brainstorming about how to better strive toward your goals. Coaches can help ensure that their clients journaling is helpful by providing some guidance.

To guide your client in effective journaling, use can use the handy JOURNAL acronym (Coach Federation, 2013):

To learn more about the JOURNAL acronym, check out this blog.

The action brainstorming worksheet can help clients get out of a rut or a sticky situation.

This easy to use tool is only one page long, with a table that is split into five columns. The instructions are to think of actions or behaviors that you frequently engage in or would like to engage in, and direct them into the appropriate column.

This easy-to-use, one-page tool can be viewed and downloaded here.

The Understanding Our Goals worksheet is intended to help clients figure out whether their goals are worth their time and energy, or to help them prioritize their goals in terms of utility.

This worksheet invites readers to identify their top three current goals and asks a series of questions to help them learn about why each goal is important to them and what they are hoping to gain. These questions begin with the simple Why do you want this goal? What does it give you? and essentially repeat several times to help the reader drill down into what they are really hoping to achieve.

After answering these questions four times, the final question for each goal is What will this goal help you feel? Once the reader has reached the heart of the goal, answering this question should be easy.

As an example, take the goal of losing 20 pounds.

An answer to the first question may be To look and feel better.

The answer to the second repetition could be something like Achieving this goal will allow me to take pride in my body.

The third iteration may elicit a response like Taking pride in my body will help me feel better about myself overall.

The fourth question may then be answered with Feeling better about myself overall will help me to tackle my other goals and improve my quality of life.

Finally, the answer to the ultimate question, What will this goal help you feel? might be something like Confident, proud of myself, and motivated to pursue all of my other goals.

To see the worksheet for yourself or to download a copy for your clients, follow this link.

The coaching website from Kristin Houser (www.mshouser.com) is an excellent resource for instructional coaches, but the tools and tips are not limited to one kind of coach they can be adapted or modified to apply to all forms of coaching.

Here are some of her tools and processes for coaching, from beginning to end (Houser, Instructional Coaching Tools):

This is a great way to begin a coaching relationship, as it gets both parties up to speed on what the coach can offer and what the client is hoping to work on.

Questions to be answered at the kick-off meeting include Whats going well? and What are they struggling with? This is also where the coach and client can set up a schedule and agree on a way to keep in touch and track progress on goals.

The coaching work plan tool includes space for identifying the client, the coaching goal, brainstorming ways to support the goal(s), how you will track progress, and any other notes. As you work through the coaching process, you can also note the progress that has been made and how you can support the client moving forward.

This tool is an excellent way for coaches to stay organized and devote as much time as possible to working with their clients.

This tool is geared towards teacher coaches, but it can be used with any client who a coach has the opportunity to observe in action. It provides space to take notes on what the coach observes when sitting in on a class or other client-led activity.

After the observation has ended, there are prompts to review the next steps and ask any clarifying questions, as well as discussion prompts for the coach and client to go over together. Finally, it ends with space for identifying the next steps.

These tools can help many coaches with many different kinds of clients, ensuring that the coach stays organized and on top of their coaching duties.

For more instructional coaching tools, there is an excellent resource page from http://www.instructionalcoaching.com that you can access here. You will find teaching tools, forms, and exercises that can take coaching from effective to highly impactful.

Coaches know that to make a change, you need to first assess your current state. Assessment tools are a great way to do this, and there are dozens if not hundreds of different assessments in disparate areas that can help.

No matter the area of life that a client is committed to improving, there is probably an assessment that can help them get started!

Here, we go over four essential areas that coaches often help their clients understand, improve, or maximize (Stinnett, 2011):

These areas are identified in the context of leadership coaching, but we find that they are extremely relevant for life coaching as well. What is the intention of life coaching, if not to help the client take leadership of their own life?

Leadership is a common area that coaches are called in to assess and improve. Whether its leadership in the boardroom, in a work team, or in ones own personal life, leadership skills are an excellent resource to have in your toolbox.

These are some of the most popular leadership assessment tools.

The Leadership Competency Inventory measures leadership skills as a function of four leadership dimensions:

This assessment is composed of 46 items gauging the degree to which the user has demonstrated certain behaviors. If the client is interested in getting a more holistic view of their leadership skills and abilities, they can have their colleagues, subordinates, or even friends respond to these items as well.

To learn more about the Leadership Competency Inventory, click here.

This assessment from developers Paul Hersey and Kenneth Blanchard helps the client figure out their leadership style and generates scores in four leadership areas:

The quadrant in which the client has the highest score is considered their dominant style, while the next highest score or scores represent their fallback style or the style they can use when their dominant style is not appropriate or effective.

This assessment is most useful for those who must practice active leadership in their work, but it can help those who may someday take on a more leading role to learn and prepare for that future.

You can download the assessment and try it for yourself or your clients here.

This questionnaire is similar to the previous assessment, in that it divides leadership style into four quadrants. However, this assessment replaces the Supports quadrant with Facilitating.

The different styles can be briefly described as follows:

Directing

A leader high in the Directing style likely provides detailed instructions, specific goals, and works closely with staff.

Coaching

A coaching leader likes to motivate and encourage staff, both praising their success and providing feedback for them to improve.

Facilitating

A facilitating leader involves staff in the decision-making process, listens to their comments and concerns, and is likely to have an open-door policy.

Delegating

A leader high in Delegating provides less detail than a directing leader, and expects staff to find their own way in navigating their goals and objectives.

Like the LEAD, this assessment can be a useful tool for leaders and future leaders to think about their own personal style. This questionnaire can be accessed by anyone through SurveyMonkey at this link.

Personality assessments are very common in all types of coaching, as well as the classroom, a therapists office, and in guidance counseling.

While there is no personality assessment that can tell you exactly who you are and what is most important to you, the results from these assessments can be an excellent guide to learning more about yourself and making sure your goals line up with your priorities.

A few of the most popular personality assessments are described below.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator , or MBTI , is perhaps the most well-known personality inventory. It narrows down the test takers personality based on four bipolar dimensions:

Individuals can fall anywhere along the spectrum between the two poles, but they will always be a bit closer to one than the other. This results in 16 possible personality types, all with their own unique characteristics.

This tool has been put to good use in the corporate world as well as in schools and universities. The idea is that when you know more about your distinct preferences, you can learn how to put them to best use. Your results are not a crystal ball in which you can see your life plan, but they can be a useful resource when building an outline of your future goals.

You can learn more about the MBTI or complete the assessment here.

The Values in Action Inventory of Strengths, or VIA-IS, is another popular assessment tool. This is slightly different from the MBTI in that it focuses on values instead of traits or preferences. It still provides a window into understanding your personality, but it focuses on your strengths instead of neutral factors.

There are 24 character strengths, divided into 6 categories:

Hi, ImJulieCreffield the no bullshit Life Coach. I am a mum to a gloriously mischevious 5-year-old, author of 8 books, owner of 2 thriving businesses, international speaker, and marathon runner.

Now reading that you might be thinking I am one of those super annoying overachievers in life who literally turns everything they touch into gold, if only.

My life hasnt always been an easy one.

I was a little shit at school for a start, I got in heaps of trouble in my teens and well into my twenties, Ive had some shocking relationships, battled with depression, had business ventures that didnt quite make it, I wasmade redundant 4 times in 10 years, and then 4 years ago I found myself a single parent of a child under 2, unemployedand about to lose everything.

I think the worst thing I lost during that time though was my confidence.

I completely forgot who I was, and what I was capable of.

I know what its like to feels like what you want is out of reach, to think that theres no way that you have the time, the energy or the resources to make any changes in your life. To feel like you need a new reason to get out of bed in the morning aside from making breakfast and clearing up after other people. What happened to all those dreams you had? What happened to that sense of adventure?

If you said yes to any of the above I get it, I have been there, done that. In fact, thats why I am here sharing this with you.

Heres the thing I know for sureIf I can do it, so can you!

What is a Life Coach? Learn What Does a Life Coach Do To …

Posted: January 21, 2019 at 10:41 pm


without comments

A results life coach is someone who helps you identify your goals and develop an actionable plan to achieve them. Coaching may sound like a foreign concept to some, but to compete as a world-class athlete, you need the experience, enthusiastic support, objective perspective and insight of a coach. This is just as true for CEOs, entrepreneurs, business leaders, executives and business professionals. So, what is a life coach? A life coach is someone professionally trained to help you maximize your full potential and reach your desired results.

Want to achieve real results NOW? Schedule your FREE 30-minute introductory session with a Tony Robbins Results Coaching Specialist.

A life coach encourages and counsels clients on a range of professional and personal issues. Life coaching is distinct from giving advice, consulting, counseling, mentoring and administering therapy. You would hire a coach to help you with specific professional projects, personal goals and transitions. A coach helps you to grow by analyzing your current situation, identifying existing and potential challenges and obstacles you face and devising a custom plan of action designed to help you achieve specific outcomes in your life.

The relationship between a client and their lifestyle coach is a creative partnership that seeks to:

These aspects of the process all work together to allow the client to maximize his or her potential, and research shows that coaching and training is a far more effective combination than training alone. In fact, training alone can increase productivity by 22.4%, but when combined with weekly life coaching, productivity is boosted by 88%.

Tony pioneered the Results Life Coaching industry over 40 years ago, and his Results Coaches are the only ones trained in Tony Robbins proprietary techniques and methodologies, which have helped millions of people all over the world to change their lives forever.

Unlike other coaching programs, your Tony Robbins Results Coach will go beyond simple strategy and mentoring. If you find yourself asking, What is a life coach? perhaps you should really be asking, What is a Results Coach and what can they do for me? Your Results Coach will help you get in the best possible mental state to tackle your goals. Your coach knows that the mind is the key to your success. Even a great strategy wont succeed without the right mindset to implement it. Results Coaches know the secrets to Tonys Ultimate Success Formula, and will help you define and discover your personal success. Tony Robbins Results Coaches specialize in helping you to identify poor thoughts and behavior, break negative patterns, and push you to meet and exceed your desired results.

These are just a few of the ways a Results Coach will impact your life.

Now that you know what it is a Results Coach does, its time to examine the many misconceptions and myths out there about life coaching. Here are some of the most common.

Anyone can be a life coach and coaches do not require training. This isnt the case. Great life coaches must possess the right blend of expertise and skilled delivery. This ensures that they can properly motivate and encourage clients while determining and resolving the core issues that merit attention in each case. Tony Robbins Results Coaches receive over 250 hours of training so they have all the skills needed to help you transform your life. Whats more, Tony Robbins Results Coaches are people who have already achieved proven success in their own lives.

Coaching is like unlicensed therapy. Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals, and they do not diagnose you. In contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and motivations. It is analytical, but not action-oriented.

Check out our infographic on the differences between a life coach and a therapist to learn more.

Coaching is only for people who have problems or who cant succeed on their own. Going back to the athlete analogy, life coaching is for anyone who wants to improve their performance whether youre trying to advance at work or make more meaningful personal connections. Even the most skilled, successful people can benefit from coaching.

Coaches let you vent, then they offer advice. Coaches do need to have great listening skills, but delivering high-quality coaching is far more than giving advice. It demands that the coach be able to draw on a deep base of knowledge, experience and training to craft unique solutions for each scenario and work with the client to implement them. Coaches are objective and will offer unbiased opinions about how to move toward accomplishing your goals.

People choose to hire life coaches because they want to do even more tomorrow than they can do today. They want to improve their output and see more growth, and they want to do those things quickly and to the best of their ability. All kinds of people use life coaches, including actors, business leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs, executives, homemakers, managers, professionals, small business owners and start-up pioneers. These people all identify a gap between where they are and where they want to be, and turn to coaching when they want help reaching their goals.

Some of the most common steps clients take while working with life coaches include:

Life coaching typically works in a specific, structured format, although your coach will ultimately work with you to create a custom action plan. First, you will work with your coach to define your vision: What is it that truly drives you? Whats at the basis of your goals? After answering that question, youll work alongside your coach to identify barriers and limiting beliefs that have been holding you back. What negative things have you been telling yourself? How have these patterns gotten in your way, and how can you move past them? Finally, you and your coach willset challenging, but achievable, goals. Your coach will ensure that you are not settling for limited goals or being too negative as you assess your position by helping you calibrate your long and short-term goals against your core values.

Assessing your current position helps you and your lifestyle coach measure your progress and identify current and potential obstacles. After this important step, you and your coach will review your resources and all courses of action available to you in order to create a plan of action. Youll then decide which specific steps you will take and when you will take them. You will prepare for potential obstacles and decide how to cope with them. At this time, you will ensure that each step supports your end goals, while your coach will help you stay motivated and track your progress. If your plan needs modification at any point, your coach will help you with this as well, which will empower you to stay committed and on track toward your goals along the way.

Theres a reason that life coaching is the second-fastest growing profession in the world because it works for people. Few people can honestly say that they are already performing at the top of their game each and every day. If you are ready to truly maximize your human potential, and take your life to the next level, then its time to seek out a life coach.

5 Life-Boosting Resolutions for 2019 (That You Can Actually Keep)

Posted: January 12, 2019 at 11:04 am


without comments

New Year’s resolutions are hard to keep. We’ve all made decisions about how we will improve our lives only to fall back into old patterns by February or March. And, truth be told, we’re often doomed before we even begin. This is partly because we focus on an outcome instead of a process, like losing 30 pounds instead of feeling better in our clothes. Our inability to stick to resolutions also has to do with how extreme we make the resolution. For example, someone who never exercises will have a hard time sustaining a resolution that asks them to workout for an hour five days a week. If you want to see changes in the new year, here are five resolutions that are inspirational, motivational, and sustainable!

Resolution #1 Get Better Sleep

Have you ever noticed how sleep tends to be considered more of a luxury than a necessity? Unfortunately, that kind of thinking — while often perpetuated by society and culture — can lead to physical and mental health issues. Take back control of your nightly slumber and you’re likely to see an improvement in productivity, mood, blood pressure and immunity. That means prioritizing healthy sleep habits will boost your overall mental and physical health. Have you endured many sleepless nights in 2018 and not sure where to start? Look no further than your mattress. If you’re sleeping on a bed that is more than seven years old, it’s past time to make a change.

Resolution #2 Prioritize Self-Care

Making sure your needs are a priority is the foundation to preventing burnout, managing stress and handling responsibilities. All too often in our busy schedules we push aside the things we need so we can tackle the things others need. Gliding down that slippery slope leads to unhealthy habits and poor coping mechanisms. This is especially true for people who have recently suffered a major loss. Losing a loved one is one of the most challenging and devastating situations we face, and we all face it at one time or another. If you lost a loved on in 2018 and are struggling with the grief, consider an online bereavement program as a part of your self-care routine.

Resolution #3 Exercise More Regularly

Physical activity is a great way to improve multiple areas of your life. Exercise has a positive ripple effect in both your mental and physical health. When you make the time to exercise moderately for about 30 minutes three to four days a week, you will likely notice physical improvements, like increased energy and better sleep. But exercise isn’t just about shrinking your waistline. It helps manage depression, anxiety and stress, while improving focus and attention.

Resolution #4 Eat More Wholesome Meals

Cooking can be a time-consuming chore, especially for people who aren’t interested or adventurous in the kitchen. But if you are looking for resolutions that boost your whole health in 2019, your kitchen is the place to start. There are several effective ways to make eating healthy easier. You can start a meal prep routine, where you take one day to cook and store healthy meals for the whole week. You can also try out a subscription to a meal delivery service, where you’ll get recipes and fresh ingredients delivered straight to your door.

Resolution #5 Let It Go

Ruminating on stressful or hurtful situations won’t fix any challenges in your life. It’s hard, but not impossible, to practice letting go. When you let go of attachments to certain expectations, you’ll feel less disappointed with outcomes you can’t control. Letting go also helps you develop more confidence in who you are, instead of fixating on who you think you are supposed to be. While letting go does require a level of acknowledgment and acceptance, it doesn’t mean accepting a toxic relationship or a harmful situation. Letting go means you understand that you deserve better than the negative narratives and relationships you find yourself in.

When it comes to making life-improving resolutions, think about the state of mind you want to cultivate. The outcomes will naturally develop, and you’ll feel less overwhelmed and more satisfied. Here’s to a healthful 2019!

Thank you for visiting Coaching Breakthroughs of Toronto (Richmond Hill actually). My name is Guy Reichard, and I invite you to explore this growing website to learn more about coaching and personal growth.

I am a professionally trained and certified executive life coach and personal growth mentor who works with a wide variety of unique people, with one main thing in common their desire and yearning to create a meaningful life with more authenticity, purpose, fulfillment and freedom.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms to choose ones attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose ones own way.~ Viktor Frankl

Through deep and meaningful coaching conversations & impactful exercises that tap you in to your inner wisdom, I will help you create the life youve always wanted to live but didnt realize or believe was possible for you (or more likely you got in your own way, big time).

As a coach, I help people create richer, more balanced (centered/grounded) and more fulfilling lives. I embrace a holistic approach to coaching working on all areas of a persons life that require support and growth mind, emotions, spirit, relationships, career, purpose, leadership and more. But more than that for the courageous few we work on different parts of a persons psyche the good, the bad, the ugly, the disowned.

My purpose is to help as many people as I can to awaken to their true essence, and create lives they are truly capable of creating living with more authenticity, passion, purpose, inner peace and limitless possibilities.

My intention is to be an intensely supportive and nurturing catalyst of new breakthroughs, meaningful growth, and providing new ways and tools to empower and sustain you as you create fulfillment & authentic happiness in your life.

I developed this site to help you learn all about personal coaching and growth, and have divided it into two main sections:

Please explore the site and take your time with the pages, articles and exercises included in some of the blog posts. Feel free to interact with me by posting comments on the posts that interest you. Then, when you feel ready, I encourage you to register for a complimentary consultation and strategy session.

I am a Certified Executive Life Coach & Personal Growth Mentor. I work most often with people in the Greater Toronto Area. However, I do have international clientele and provide coaching by phone and video-conferencing in case you are not in the Toronto area. I offer deep, profound & soulful coaching for exceptional people to help them be who they really are and make the most out of this thing called life!

How to Start a Successful Life Coaching Business – Coach …

Step 3: Identify your preferred coaching business structure

In the United States, there are six unique business structures:

Each offers a variety of legal protections and comes with a range of different tax obligations. The U.S. Small Business Administration has created an excellent resource for learning more about each of the specific types, as well as the common industries that most often take advantage of them.

In addition, one of our graduates (who is a CPA and small business coach) offers some insider tips on the pros and cons of the most popular business structure options for coaches. As you watch Ana, keep in mind the two most important details when choosing your structure: legal liability and taxation.

Coaches love to work with their clients in person. After all, we are relationship-oriented people. But the option of web connectivity provides a broader reach and more convenience, both for the coach and their clients.

This takes us to another decision in the process: should you get an office or work from home?

The decision to invest in a physical office really depends on your preferences and your budget. Having an office can feel really good. It gives your services a professional appearance, especially if you plan on offering group coaching or workshops.

If you dont need the space full-time, you may be able to sublet or rent it to other coaches if your lease allows. This is one way many coaches subsidize their office space when theyre just starting out. As their practice grows and they need the space more often, they simply scale back on the subletting. Craigslist.org is a great place to find such opportunities within your area.

One potential drawback to keep in mind: A physical office requires separate phone services, high-speed web access, and utilities. These services can add up quickly depending on your location. But there are also a number of offices you can rent by the hour.

Day offices like ShareDesk and Davinci provide a complete office setup and include all the necessary business amenities (some even come with a live lobby greeter). Prices start between $10 and $60 per hour, with day rates from $30 to $300. On-demand work spaces can be booked online and offer a variety of unique office settings, from individual work stations to full conference rooms and office suites. Theyre another great way to get started without a ton of expense.

In contrast, working from home has its own set of rewards. I love it! And the pros are obvious:

One potential drawback to keep in mind: If you end up working at home, youll need to find a way to separate your business from the rest of your life. This includes kids, dogs, and household distractions such as laundry, yard work, and the siren song of the refrigerator.

When setting up a home office, establish a place that makes boundaries clear and enables you to easily avoid the distractions and temptations that threaten to keep you from focusing on your clients. Also, consider how comfortable you feel having people over. How easy will it be to constantly maintain a clean and private environment?

That said, if you plan on coaching clients primarily on the phone or online, a home office might be the way to go.

My favorite setup is a self-contained office located on the property similar to a guest house or bungalow. Its in a separate area from the main house so it feels more professional but also offers the convenience of proximity. Its the best of both worlds.

Another version of this setup is a separate entrance into a private area of your home. But honestly, when you start packing in the clients, a separate office or location is really the way to go. And if you havent noticed the number of coaches working out of coffee shops, pay attention to whos around you the next time youre in one!

With your ideal space chosen, the final core component is to furnish it with the tools of the coaching trade. Most coaches need a good phone and a headset for phone coaching. And thats about it! I recommend a landline with a wireless headset. Although a good noise-cancelling headset and your cell phone might do just as well.

Before buying equipment, consider where youll be coaching from. To give you an example, Ive coached while traveling, using my cell and a laptop computer from as far as Indonesia with no problem. One word of caution: make sure you have a backup plan to avoid disappointing your clients if your primary means of communication fails. Wireless signals and web connectivity can be unreliable, more so in some parts of the world than others.

Skype is one of the most popular platforms for offering coaching services. Its free for most people, easy to use, and accessible anywhere and on a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets. If you intend on using Skype, ensure that you have a strong Internet connection.

It might also be worthwhile to invest in another virtual meeting space that, for a small fee, will give you more reliable service. Popular examples include Google Hangouts (free for up to 10 participants; $5 per month for 11 to 15 participants), WebEx ($25 to $50 per month), and Fuze ($15 to $70 per month). Although in the past year, you cant go wrong with Zoom.us free to work with individuals one-on-one, and only $15 a month to work with groups.

If you decide to do group coaching, youll definitely want an online meeting/seminar service like WebEx or GoToMeeting. These platforms offer additional options and enhanced features for leading groups and managing participants.

Starting a life coaching business is similar to any other enterprise: there are a number of components that minimize cost, organize your process, and ensure success.

Among the most common, youll find:

Liability insurance. Depending on your risk tolerance and the type of coaching you plan on offering, you might want to look into liability insurance for life coaches. As a certified life coach, holding either an ICF or BCC Credential, youll qualify for discounted rates on this type of policy with many insurance companies. Start by comparing premiums directly through the ICF.

Client organization tools. For those who like to stay super organized and have a streamlined system in place, explore online platforms that minimize your administrative duties. This can include everything from letting clients self-book their appointments to managing your billing, record keeping, CRM, appointment reminders, and the hosting of client information and session data. Popular platforms include:

Taxes, write-offs and quarterly estimated taxes. You can begin writing off your business expenses once youve officially opened the doors to your business. But be aware: there are a few exceptions.

Professional services. This isnt just for coaches. Its for anyone starting their business. Create your dream support team in advance to avoid stress and unwelcome surprises. This typically includes resources for legal advice, accounting and taxes. Also, hiring a seasoned marketing coach is never a bad investment. It could save you hundreds of hours and thousands of wasted dollars. Depending on your marketing skills, you may also require a graphic artist, web developer and copywriter to help brand your services.

The above topics represent broad considerations for starting your life coaching business. But as you integrate the specifics of your chosen niche, you may have questions or need additional guidance to ensure you take the most direct and economical path forward.

Coach Training World offers two business courses for coaches: Live & Brand Your Brilliance and CONVERT: From Clarity & Confidence to Clients. They are included free with our Whole Person Certified Coach Training (WPCC) Certification package but can also be taken independently. Within each, youll find a comprehensive series of strategy, tools and business resources that can simplify the often frustrating process of establishing and promoting a new coaching business.

A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how and whether to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesnt help solve problems from your past theyre focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

Regardless of which type of life coach youre interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.
