What is coaching?
Life coaching is a results-orientated alliance between a coach and an individual who wants to make positive change. The coach is a trained communicator who guides the client to discover strategies and inner and outer resources to reach their goals more efficiently and with less stress. 
How does working with a coach help a person to achieve goals more quickly?
To explain, I'll use an analogy. Imagine you are trying to move a piano. You realize you aren't making progress. You call your strong, handy friend who works at Home Depot. He arrives with a moving blanket, tape, ramp, racket straps, dolly, and pulley. After protecting the piano, each of you lifts one side, centering the piano on the dolly. Then you roll the piano down the ramp to the garage where you're storing it. Goal achieved!
Similarly, the coach comes to each session with tools, strategies, and a commitment to help you reach your goal efficiently and with less stress. As a bonus, you leave coaching with a roadmap and a set of skills to help you reach future goals like you did during coaching.
What are the differences between a therapist, mentor, and coach?
  • A therapist treats emotional issues and mental disorders.
  • A mentor serves as a model and provides information, resources, and support.
  • A coach partners with emotionally healthy individuals for the achievement of their goals by focusing on awareness, accountability, and action.
With so many coaches, how do I know which one is right for me?
  • Decide what you want from coaching – help with relationships, career, finances, productivity, wellness, starting a business, or something else. Search for coaches under that category.
  • Talk briefly with three coaches.
  • Then arrange for a longer conversation with the two who stand out.  
  • To see if you are a good match for each other, ask about their training, experiences, coaching style, and fees. Also, request to see testimonials.
  • If you find a coach you want to work with and you're ready to start, schedule the first session.
How does coaching fit into a busy schedule?
Your sessions can be in-person, virtual, or hybrid. You and the coach communicate by email, phone, or text in between sessions. As you progress toward your goals, you'll probably find you are more energized and productive and have more free time. 
Is coaching expensive?
While high-profile coaches can be very expensive, many well-trained, experienced coaches offer services in their area of expertise at affordable prices. You can arrange for short-term coaching or sign up for a video course that includes communication with the coach to keep costs low.
