Introducing Life Coaching.

Life coaching and personal coaching are interchangeable terms – they mean the same.
Life coaching aims to draws out a person’s potential rather than puts in aims and knowledge from outside.
It develops rather than imposes.
It reflects rather than directs.
Effective life coaching or personal coaching is a form of change facilitation – it enables people, rather than trains them.
Life coaching is reactive and flexible – it allows for personal transition on an individual basis.
Coaching of this sort makes no assumptions – it’s not judgmental, nor is it prescriptive or instructional.
Empathy is central to the coaching process.
Good personal coaching seeks to help the other person’s understanding of himself or herself.
Life coaching is rather like a brand or label of the life coaching industry, but it potentially covers virtually every aspect of personal development that an individual might aspire to – for career direction and development, management, executive and leadership, business start-up and entrepreneurial, life skills, personal fulfillment, life-balance, and the acquisition of specific skills or knowledge.
Life coaching can be this adaptable because it is not concerned with delivery and specialized training – it focuses on enablement and reflection, so that the individual decides and discovers their required progression themselves.
