Is coaching with the online coach right for me?
There are a lot of reasons why people come to a life coach. It's a $2 billion industry and growing. In the U.S., there is only one life coach for about every 15-20,000 people. Depending on where you live, there may not be a life coach near you. You may want to consider the online coach solution.
Here are some reasons to consider online coaching:
You have a busy schedule which makes seeing a life coach in person hard
Most of us are incredibly busy, juggling family, career, interests. An online coach allows us access to life-changing coaching at our convenience. Whether over Skype or telephone, a good coach should be able to help you drive more life satisfaction, create important goals, and stay on track.
Seeing a coach in-office means taking time, usually during the day. There may be a commute, parking, etc.
You're more comfortable in your home/office
Some people enjoy talking to the online coach curled up in a comfy chairs wearing their sweats. No big deal. The magic of technology makes this entirely possible. Coaching over the telephone or voice or video conference has become hugely popular.
Reducing anxiety by talking to your life coach in a comfortable environment is a good thing.
You can hire the life coach who is perfect for you.
There are all kinds of coaches out there - health coaches, wellness coaches, spiritual coaches, transformational coaches. You should be able to find one you resonate with and who specializes in what you want to work on.
You can have access to coaches all over the world.
Ultimately, it's about flexibility
Time, location, selection of coaches. What works for you? I believe that life coaching is one of the most powerful tools we have available for personal development. But you need to find a coach who resonates and works with you.
