Good thought--let performance set the pay! Thank you!
Wow--that's crazy!!!!!!!!! That's interesting..thanks for sharing!
Thanks. Have you ever seen a coach and if so how did it help (or not)?
Thanks for the feedback. Since the business is unregulated, what do you think people go off of to choose a coach? References? Certifications?
Certainly look for accreditation and extensive training. References are also a good way to go. Beware of "free" coaching or services that are linked to a religious or other organization with a hidden agenda to recruit you.
You are indeed fortunate to have family and friends as resources to turn to. Sadly many families I work with do not have people in their lives and so I help them create a circle of support and find people who can help them.
Yes Lizam1, I don't suggest any fault or failure of the individual who turns to professionals for those things family & friends provide, but rather point to a cultural fault & failure, that we've come to a point that so many live without that
A life coach is not a friend. A friend can listen to you, you're right, but a good life coach is not supposed to give you his opinion, judgment or advice. A coach can stay neutral ad solution focus. A coach and a friend are not the same at all.
I haven't heard of "Well-Being" Coaching--is that a niche in coaching or a company? I agree--pay only for something that helps!
Thanks--I didn't know about that website--I'll see what they have!
LIfe Coach--somebody who comes alongside another person and assists/supports them with a life goal. It could be anything--health, career, relationship. Wherever the person is "stuck" the coach acts as a guide/facilitator/support to help!
Thanks, it wasn't my ignorance, rather unawareness of,unfamiliarity of the " cultural" usage of " Coach" - in my long time ago the only " coach" we're the people around you, and naturally, theVOICE one learns to follow - of God.
Appreciate your feedback. Its true only self can help self, but sometimes self needs an outside help to help bring clarity, provide support, and direction. I've been amazed at how skilled coaches have brought clarity and momentum. But good words-TU!
Sometimes a skilled and well trained coach can help a person get started and clear the muddle to know how to get to step one.
