Coaches have the ability to view things from afar, in what is called helicopter vision and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often, they act as a sounding board through your toughest decisions, help you sharpen skills, and motivate you into a well-being intent for your physical and mental journey.
Studies revealed where training alone was compared to life coaching, combined with training. The study showed that training by itself, increased productivity by 22.4% while training combined with weekly life coaching increased productivity by 88%. Here is why:
Accountability. Most life coaches have two calls a month with their clients. The regularly scheduled calls prompt clients to get more done than they would, if left to their own devices. Think about it, if you work out with a personal trainer at the gym, you work much harder than on your own. Clients take better actions, set higher goals, and think greater when they work with a life coach.
Expertise. The life coach knows how to help you set the right goals and structure your personal or professional life to achieve greater productivity with less effort. You’ll accomplish more in less time with the input of a life coach on your side.
Delivery. A coach knows how to use the right words and ask the right questions, so you are naturally motivated. Coaching typically works best with biweekly calls, so you have time to integrate new ways of thinking and take actions each week, toward your goals. Most life coaching is done by phone or SKYPE if international, and range in a half hour to one hour coaching calls. The session is challenging and uplifting. You will look forward to your calls with your life coach and share your experiences about how positive that your life has become, more intent filled and purposeful too with your family, friends, or colleagues. You will feel more confident and experience a better you.
Speed. Most people find that things start to happen very quickly after hiring a life coach.
