[ What is Personal Coaching?  

Everyone knows what a sports coach does. Many people also know about artistic coaches in music, dance and acting.

Like the other types of coaches, a personal coach will:

  • look at what the client wants to accomplish and help with setting better goals,
  • help a client evaluate what his or her strengths are and then use those strengths to achieve more than they would have on their own,
  • help clients stay better focused so that results may be produced more quickly,
  • provide clients with the tools, support, and structure to enable them to accomplish more than they could by themselves.

While knowledge about human behavior and past patterns may be revealed as a client grows and develops, it is not the focus of a coaching relationship. "Issues" in these areas need to be handled by a trained therapist.

Unlike a consultant who provides "how to" information and then leaves the client to fend for himself, a personal coach stays with the client to help implement the new skills, changes, and goals and make sure that the client's objectives are accomplished.

Although personal coaches are trained professionals who have skills, tools, and abilities beyond those of most close friends, they still listen when you need a sympathetic ear, maintain confidence in regard to what you tell them, and support you and cheer you on as you face life's challenges.
