How to get the most out of your life?

What kinds of people can benefit from coaching?
Anyone who wants to try new patterns and form new habits in their life can benefit from coaching. People who are open to new possibilities and prepared to do what is necessary to reach their goals benefit most.
What happens in a typical life coaching session?
I do a number of coaching “exercises" to get an accurate idea of a client’s strengths and values. Questions are also a critical part of coaching. A simple question can have a long-term effect on a person’s lifestyle. In every coaching session, I listen intently and repeat aloud the exact words I heard from the client.People often respond with enthusiasm and praise me for the wisdom of my words. I tell them I am simply saying their own words back to them.
What results can people expect from life coaching?
People who achieve their goals experience more peace of mind, satisfaction and success in life. Ideally, coaching helps people shift to a higher level of performance and achieve desired results more consistently. I often compare coaching to dropping a stone in the middle of a pond. It’s amazing to watch the ripples move to the edges of the shore and sometimes even beyond.
