What exactly is coaching?

Coaching is a method of directing, instructing and training a person or group of people, with the aim to achieve some goal or develop specific skills. (Wikipedia)

Who needs to hire a coach?

Most coaches would say that everyone needs a coach but in reality some people are not coachable and it often isn’t people that you would think need coached that actually need the coach. Often those who make the best use of a coach are those who are already successful. The reason is simple they know they can do it, they believe in themselves and really are interested in doing even better and achieving more success.

Now don't get me wrong, I think that everyone has the ability to achieve more and if they wanted to they could benefit from a coach. The problem is that the average person doesn't want to make any sacrifices even if it would make their own life a thousand times better.

What people don't understand is that even a simple sacrifice of watching less TV every night could make an enormous difference.

What to look for in a coach?

First thing to ask yourself is “Does this coach feel right for me?” Your intuition is a fantastic tool and you really need to act on your intuition. Remember just because they are a good coach doesn’t mean that they are good for you, there are many amazing coaches out there.

Second, “Do they really know what they are talking about?” Some coaches could know how to achieve themselves, but are unable to teach others how to do so. And on the contrary some coaches may not know how to pull it off themselves but have great coaching skills.
