Top Five Things To Look For When Hiring A Life Coach
There comes a time in one’s life when it’s easy to get stuck in a rut, working long hours and not getting enough time to spend with family, exercise, or relax. It can lead to strained relationships, poor health, and career stagnation.
Therefore, to avoid negative lifestyle habits, it’s worth consulting with a certified life coach that can help you overcome obstacles and make a breakthrough. However, finding an experienced mentor is not always easy.
So, if you’re seeking a professional to transform your thinking and take you to new heights, here’s a list of the top five things to look for in a life coach.
You want to hire someone you see yourself connecting closely with and who can help to deliver the desired outcome. Your first meeting should ideally be in person or over Zoom, where you can see each other’s expressions.
A phone session for your first meeting could work, but that would depend on you, the client. The first session may lead to a second meeting where a decision gets reached on working together long-term. During these sessions, you are learning about each other and the possibilities to live a more empowered life.
Goal achieving is a coach’s primary function, and you want someone to keep you accountable. So, look for someone who has received certifications and training as a coach.
Also, keep in mind that coaching is a collaborative activity where both parties are intrinsically involved in unraveling your true nature. As a result, a good coach will not have you stay on as a client if you no longer benefit from the coaching.
You want your coach to be a good listener and offer a safe space to express yourself. They should also motivate you to move forward with inspired nudges to form new habits and a winning attitude.
Some people may gravitate towards finding a coach who may have experienced similar setbacks. This thinking may not necessarily produce good results other than the coach being able to relate to you. So go for a coach that could get you unstuck and assist you in moving beyond your current limitations.
5. Great value
While coaching is not therapy, it can be therapeutic in having you feel a more joyous and clearer view of life. Therefore, you should look for a coach who can understand your life purpose, uniqueness, and greatness.
On a final note, remember life coaching services come at a cost. However, time is money, so consider how much more time you are dreaming of what’s possible instead of making it a reality.
