31 Days of Life Coaching - Day 2

31 Days of Life Coaching



Day 2 – What Is Life Coaching Anyway?



When I began training to become a coach, I wasn’t quite sure how to define it myself. But then I heard this concise statement that totally resonated with me and summed up life coaching perfectly.

“Coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals and groups to move from where they are to where they want to be.”  Gary R. Collins, Ph.D.

It’s really quite simple isn’t it?
  • A coach comes alongside someone who wants to move forward in their lives; a person who wants to intentionally change or grow. <==Click to Tweet
  • A coach is an active listener, asking questions instead of telling the client what to do. This way the client is an active participant in assessing where they are, identifying changes they want to make, and formulating action steps that they are committed to taking.
  • As the process unfolds, and by utilizing powerful and revealing inventory tools, the coach helps the client recognize and understand the obstacles that stop him or her from moving forward or reaching the goals they’ve set.
  • Through regular sessions and accountability, momentum toward change continues forward, obstacles are overcome, and essentially the client reaches goals that allow him or her to live the life they want to live with purpose, passion, and intentionality.

Through regular sessions and accountability, momentum toward change continues forward, obstacles are overcome, and essentially the client reaches goals that allow him or her to live the life they want to live with purpose, passion, and intentionality.
