Frequently Asked Questions
What is coaching?
ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
In its truest form, Life Coaching is a forward focused process. It is the process of determining
where the client wants to go, recognizing where they are now and designing success strategies to
fast-track to the goal with supportive encouragement and accountability along the way.
Who hires a life coach?
In general, people who hire a life coach tend to be people that want the following:
- To achieve their goals and be successful
- To find happiness
- To find their life purpose
- To do what they love
- To decide on or change their career
- To be more confident
- To find love or improve their relationships
Is coaching a type of therapy?
What matters is that people get help in their efforts to grow, master their problems, and become more effective in their lives. Both approaches aim to do this.
How does one become a life coach?
To become a qualified Life Coach, it is essential first and foremost that you have a love for people and personal development, a passion for change, and a heart to help.
Enroll in a course recognised by the ICF (International Coaching Federation) and you are on your way to becoming a Life Coach.
What is the difference between a coach and a consultant?
Both coaches and consultants can be incredibly useful for people who want to improve their lives and make better decisions. But while they both can serve a similar purpose, coaching vs. consulting actually describe approaches that have fundamental differences.
Coaching is the process of helping people become the best versions of themselves. Whether it’s in life, health, or business (or all three), coaches don’t just hand down the answers to the people they are working with but instead expect the clients to come to the conclusions that fit their situations on their own.
Coaches help by asking the right questions and pushing their clients in the right direction, which empowers them to find the answers they are looking for and become better equipped at dealing with similar situations in the future.
Consulting is the process of providing clients advice on how to approach specific situations. Consultants are usually leading experts in their fields, with plenty of experience, and they offer clients specific instructions on how to deal with various issues, scenarios, and opportunities.
Instead of helping the clients learn to manage problems independently, consultants focus more on how their expertise can improve the current situation.
Even though coaching and consulting aren’t the same, they do have some things in common. That’s actually the reason why coaching vs. consulting often gets confused, with even the experts themselves unsure about how to better position themselves to reflect what they can offer clients.
For one thing, both coaching and consulting require you to be knowledgeable and experienced in the field. Whether you’re tackling the problem yourself or working with the client so that they can find solutions to the issues on their own, the end goal can often be similar.
