Helpful Tips 🙏 on How to Choose 🔍 a Life Coach 🌟 ...


In order to have passion and purpose in your job it is important to know what type of work or job position will make you happy, which is why learning how to choose a life coach is so important. Unfortunately, that is not as easy as it may seem. Many of us are looking for a fresh start involving career or just positive life changes so that you can find your purpose.

This is when a life coach can be helpful. A life coach is a business professional that addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in a person’s life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now. They help discover what your obstacles or challenges might be, and will help you choose a course of action to make your life what you want it to be. Life coaches can also specialize in different areas such as time management, finances, spirit guidance, marriage, fitness goals and of course career guidance. Read on for more information on how to choose a life coach.

According to Anne Wondra, who has been working as a life coach/spirit worker for 15 years with a background in human resources, wellness, women’s studies, religious studies, and business, “We are so much more powerful on our own behalf when we don’t feel so alone, especially women. A personal renaissance or life change or decision to live a more conscious and meaningful life takes one into unfamiliar places—internally and sometimes externally. To have a trusted confidant, coach, consultant, an empowering positive presence, is powerful…and makes the process a lot more dynamic. There’s a synergy that’s created.”

Cathy Posner, a life coach who has been providing career and transition coaching for 11 years and has also worked as a consultant with nonprofit organizations in areas of strategic development which often included aspects of coaching, says “A coach acts as a partner, motivator, cheerleader and support system on your journey. They are able to see the issues more objectively and help you to do the same. A good coach will be well plugged-in to resources that can enhance whatever issue you are working on.”

If you are considering hiring a life coach, here are some pointers from Anne and Cathy for selecting the proper one.

1. Check Their Website and Background. Were They Referred by Someone You Know?

Not only do you want to make sure they're the real deal, but you want someone who is capable of guiding you on your specific journey. Making sure the coach is who they say they are is on of the most important steps when figuring out how to choose a life coach.
