What is life coaching?

Life coaching is a collaborative process between a coachee willing to make positive changes in their personal and/or professional lives and a trained professional, known as a life coach, helping the coachee in setting and achieving goals in the areas of career, health, relationships, finances, or other aspects of life. During a life coaching session, the coach helps the coachee clarify their values, identify their strengths and areas for improvement, and set specific and achievable goals. The coach may also help the coachee identify and overcome limiting beliefs, negative thought patterns, and other obstacles that may be hindering their progress. Unlike therapy, which typically focuses on resolving past issues or traumas, life coaching is focused on the present and future. The coach and coachee work together to develop actionable steps to achieve the coachee's desired outcomes and make positive changes in their life.

How do you prepare yourself for life coaching?

Preparing for life coaching can help you get the most out of your coaching sessions and ensure that you're ready to engage in the coaching process. Here are some steps you can take to prepare for life coaching:

  • Clarify your goals: before beginning coaching sessions, take some time to clarify your goals and what you hope to achieve through coaching. This can help you and your coach develop a clear plan for achieving your desired outcomes.
  • Reflect on your strengths and weaknesses: reflect on your strengths and areas for improvement, and consider what is holding you back from achieving your goals. This can help you and your coach identify potential obstacles and develop a plan to overcome them.
  • Identify any limiting beliefs: consider any limiting beliefs or negative self-talk that may be holding you back from achieving your goals. Bringing these to your coach's attention can help you develop strategies to overcome them.
  • Be open to feedback: life coaching often involves receiving feedback and insights from your coach. Be open to feedback and be willing to consider different perspectives and approaches to achieving your goals.
  • Come prepared with questions: prepare a list of questions or topics that you'd like to discuss during coaching sessions. This can help you stay focused and get the most out of your time with your coach.

By taking these steps to prepare for life coaching, you can approach coaching sessions with a clear focus and a readiness to engage in the coaching process.
