How Does Your Life Coach Know Your Needs In Hawthorn?
With life coaching becoming "the" career choice in this millennium, many of you are seeking the right choice for training and certification. Hopefully this article will answer some of your questions.
There are many fine life coach schools, academies and institutes. Some are accredited and some not. Should the school's accreditation make a difference to you? In my opinion, no.
Because there are no universal standards for the life coaching profession, there are no universal standards for schools. Also, because well-paid coaches generally work in a niche, those niches are such that they are developed by the coach independently of any training they might receive.
What makes the issue of accreditation particularly confusing is marketing. Accreditation is being used as a marketing tool in some cases, not as a barometer of their success. Many coaching schools are accredited only because a group of colleagues got together and decided to form a group and accredit their associates' schools. How do you know whether this is the case for a school you are interested in? You really don't know and generally can't find out.
Many schools use accreditation as a marketing ploy to draw you in and charge exorbitant rates. If you just want to spend more money, go ahead. Price really has little to do with the effectiveness of the materials. Mid-range schools generally work harder to please students and offer as good or better training in many cases, because students get more one-on-one time with instructors.
How important is a school's accreditation? Let's put it into realistic perspective. What is most important to a prospective coaching client is, can this coach help me? Most clients look to see whether a coach has had formal coach training, but not into the background of the school. And the truth is, clients don't care whether the school you attended, is accredited. It just doesn't come up. Clients will decide to use your services if they like you, feel a connection, and see that you offer the solutions they need. That's pretty much it.
I found PCCCA stands on their principles of faith, maintains the integrity of their programs and consistently strives for excellence. Their programs have been newly revised in 2010 for content and expanded business and marketing components that include social media. What is more, they offer one-to-one training with practicing coaches, serving as coach training instructors. Any coaching school's success relies on what they bring to the table with their skills, integrity, reasonable fees and knowledge. Add that to superb training and you have an unbeatable combination. While PCCCA has Christian Coaching School Accreditation, and has received their highest recognition with the Award of Excellence, prospective students can be assured they do not have secular ties or accreditation.
Regardless of your world view, I recommend that prospective coaching students not be persuaded by gimicky advertising, high fees and accreditation. Look for the best school for you. Period.
Life Coaching - Past, Present, and Future
Life coaching has become fashionable in recent years and there seems to be a big demand for what they offer. Counselling and many forms of therapy are also on offer, these may have been around for many years and have advantages to offer clients. Yet how do you choose which one to go for?
Choosing a therapist is possibly the easiest choice to make. Generally, a therapist will offer a form of therapy to treat a particular range of conditions in a particular way. So a reflexologist will offer to treat a range of ailments by using reflexology (generally massage of the feet). So you'd approach a therapist if you wished to try that therapy for your condition or you had previously had success from that therapy, or the therapy (therapist) had been recommended to you by a friend or other professional.
An additional factor you need to take into account is the qualifications of the life coach or counsellor. Counselling is an established profession and its practitioners should all have recognised qualifications. Life coaching is still new and there are a range of training bodies offering many different sorts of training. Indeed, some life coaches may not be trained at all. So do ask what qualifications and experience the life coach has.
