What are the benefits of life coaching?
What are the benefits of life coaching? This is a common question that I get asked, not only by my clients but also by individuals that have little to no experience with career & life coaching. I created this list of questions to clarify what the benefits of life coaching are so you can be informed before you choose to invest in life coaching.
Benefits of life coaching:
Mindset: Coaching can help shift your thought framework. Coaches can bring fresh perspective and new ideas or solutions that we’re not able to access when we’re stressed or frustrated. Coaching helps you see the big picture so you can see all of the possibilities that are in front of you. For example, if you feel that there are no options, the coach can help you find them!
Confidence: Coaching empowers you to be confident in who you are which translates into all aspects of your life. An improvement in confidence can lead to more success in your career, better ability to communicate, more happiness in your life as you’re living it by your terms, higher goal setting that aligns with your clear life purpose and aspirations, and an increased ability to maintain a work/life balance.
Return On Investment: In a survey conducted by the Global International Coaching Federation, 86% of clients who invested in life coaching felt they had a return on their investment.
Accountability: Life coaches hold you accountable to take the action you said you were going to take. If you set a goal, it’s the life coaches job to ensure you accomplish it. If you’re struggling with the goal it’s also the life coaches job to help you understand the resistance you’re having and create a path to overcome it.
Saves Time: The idea of hiring a life and career coach can initially seem costly. However, think of the time that you’re saving by taking action on your goals versus staying stuck and frustrated with where you’re at. A life coach is there to motivate you and inspire you to start taking action to accomplish your goals.
Reduces Stress: A life coach is there to give you tools to use to manage your stress and anxiety. The life coach provides clarity and a greater awareness so clients can always feel that they have a choice and are in control of their life versus feeling like we’re a product of our environment or circumstance.
