Sometimes you just need a “friend” who is not actually a friend. A listening ear, an understanding soul, a patient partner. Life coaches can help clients work through all sorts of life’s challenges without judgment, with compassion, and with deep commitment to positive outcomes. Coaches have the unique position to be completely honest and candid with their clients, in a way that probably no one else in their lives really can. Family members, spouses, friends, co-workers–none of these can be completely objective and unattached to possible outcomes. Coaches can, coaches are. And coaches approach these engagements with heart–their greatest joy is to experience their clients’ successes.
Professional coaches are trained to:
- Be curious
- Ask questions
- Hold a safe space
- Not judge
- Hold confidentiality
If you want to make a meaningful change in your life, consider working with a life coach. You may be surprised what you discover and what new avenues may develop as a result.
