What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a professional service providing clients with feedback, insights and guidance from an outside vantage point.  People hire a coach when they are making a career transition, starting a new business, feeling dissatisfied, re-evaluating life choices, or simply looking for personal and professional breakthroughs.  Coaching often gets confused with mentoring, consulting or counseling, but there are distinct differences.

The table below highlights the key differences between professional services commonly confused with one another.

It is very important to match the correct service to the need. Clients in need of counseling should not be engaging a life coach, and vice-versa.

Life Coaching is all about helping people establish a future vision of their life that is aligned to how they are wired, then helping them achieve the necessary transformation goals to get there.

    Very nice blog and thank you for sharing this information. I stumbled upon the following career testing website that I also found interesting. In contrast to traditional approaches which only use a simple personality test, OptYourLife examines many aspects such as memory, IQ, problem solving, and patience. It uses artificial intelligence to evaluate suitability of a job for a person while taking salary into account: http://www.optyourlife.com
