What is Life Coaching!? "The aim of life is to thrive- to find your passion and live it. A life coach can help you find and live your passion and your dream," Jill M. Fratto
Life coaching is defined by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential,” (coachfederation.org). Life Coaching helps individuals break free from blockades, identify their passions, and design a life they love. The way a coach works with their client is by getting to know them, listening to their needs and desires, and asking specially designed questions which allow the client to find more clarity and freedom. Together coach and client can create an action plan to help the client to achieve a self identified goal they have for themselves.
How does it work?
Life coaching at HRS Life Coaching can take many forms. It can be one on one coaching where the client and coach schedule weekly phone calls, video chats, or in person meetings to discuss the goal the client has in mind. These weekly meetings typically last 30-45 minutes. The client and coach discuss the client’s action plan, progress they are making, things they are learning, changes they would like to make, and what to do moving forward. The conversations can continue as many weeks as the client feels he or she needs. It can also pause for a time and resume, depending on the client’s desires. Another form of life coaching is to take an online course. These typically last five to seven weeks. Included in the course is an online community, live video lessons with coach and classmates, reading material catered to the course topic and weekly assignments given to help students reach goals. The purpose of taking a course is to connect like minded individuals who are on a similar journey. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn alongside men and women who have similar life visions. The third form of life coaching is to take a course on your own, with no live coach. You can move through prerecorded lessons at your own pace, and reach out to a coach if you want to further your journey.
What does it cost?
Cost is dependent on the type of coaching you desire. At HRS Life coaching we offer a monthly membership, one-on-one coaching, and online courses.
