Life coach? Teach living!

Attention all life coaches! What are you coaching?

Seems like there are many, many life coaches and almost as many life coaching courses out there. So what exactly are you coaching?

Here’s a quote from a well known life coaching program:

“Our program will show you to help your client achieve success in business, finance, asset accumulation, financial management and wealth creation”.

Doesn’t sound like a life coach – sounds like a CPA.

Improve your Coaching by NOT Coaching

By Wayne Goldsmith |

You read right – improve your coaching by NOT coaching.

Coaching improves performance.

But too much coaching – over coaching – can have a negative influence on performance.

Who OVER coaches?

Typically five types of coaches OVER coach:

  1. Young, inexperienced coaches who are trying too hard;
  2. Coaches who lack real belief in themselves and who try to make up for it by giving too much information. These coaches will often want to be liked – and feel the more coaching they do, the more the athletes will like them;
  3. Coaches who lack belief in their athletes and feel the need to control every element of preparation and performance;
  4. Coaches who are being evaluated or assessed and aim to impress by being SEEN to control every element of the training session, i.e. they believe that great coaching is talking more;
  5. EGO driven coaches who see athletes / players as a vehicle to promote themselves and their reputations.

So, why do so many coaches insist on teaching the basic skills without progressing them from playing level to performance level?
