What’s a personal life coach?

A personal coach is similar to an athletic coach. Instead of focusing on improving athletic skills and reaching athletic goals, an effective personal coach helps clients better utilize their planning and problem solving skills to set and achieve their life goals. (A life goal can cover any facet of living that the client deems important and meaningful.)

Who uses a personal life coach?

coachingxMillions of people use personal life coaches. They are come from all walks of life and all stages of life. They wear all kinds of hats. They are parents, students, employees, leaders, people in transition and seeking change. They are people who are willing to make an investment in themselves. The reality is that everyone is getting some amount of “coaching.”  It likely comes from teachers, spouses, parents, mentors, managers, etc.  “Professional Life Coaching” is different in that it is:

  • Consistent – Professional life coaches are trained to help people improve and accomplish more
  • Objective – we don’t have a vested interest in our client’s decisions. We can truly think from a “what’s best for you” mindset…
  • Timely – we are available when you need coaching
  • Client Focused – It is about you. We are here to assist with your challenges, encourage your progress and celebrate your successes.
  • A Partnership – The client and coach are peers, equals who are working together at the client’s request.
  • Effective – we will help you make the progress you desire to make.

No matter what your age or role, everyone can benefit from personal life coaching.

What’s differentiates “Better Life Personal Coaching” from other coaches?

Our focus is HOLISTIC

We use the Better Day – Better Life Model to encourage each client to think in terms of

  • Relationships (Who you are positively connected to…)
  • Productivity (What you accomplish and contribute…)
  • Enjoyment (How much joy and fun you have…)

Our perspective is grounded in BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES

  • All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.  2 Timothy 3:16 NLT

Clients are prayed for, praised, persuaded to make progress. They are exhorted and cajoled, if need be, to keep going.  We have a bias for productive action.

We develop SKILLS and seek to understand FEELINGS
Skills are the tools that enable the work and our feelings are the fuel that move us forward or hold us back.  We work on both.

We ask, “Are you making progress?”
We also say, “You can do it!”

We are PASSIONATE – I love working with clients as they share their dreams and desires. It’s a privilege to partner with them to create and execute the action plans that turn desires into reality. We are thrilled to see clients succeed and to be a small part of it.
