Life coaching can help empower an individual by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives. A key aspect of life coaching is confidence.
Often people that use a life coach are short of self-confidence and find themselves in a routine or rut that lacks enjoyment or excitement. Their self-worth is low or the challenge facing them too high. A life coach essentially seeks to reinstall an individual’s faltering confidence and ensure they have it within themselves to live up to their potential.
In essence, three words can be used to describe what a life coach does; guidance, empowerment and improvement.
Guidance is the life coach providing the tools and support for someone to broaden their perspective and open their mind, hence enabling them to reach their goals.
Empowerment is to a large extent down to the individual to realise their own self-worth and self-belief that has, for one reason or another, diminished.
Improvement in the sense that an individual will go from where they are to where they want to be, in effect reaching their goal.
