To Hire Or Not to Hire a Life Coach

Good things are happening at SOAR Coaching Academy. As a grassroots life coach and change cultivator, I absolutely love what I do! Yet I know that life coaching is not for everybody.

While there are plenty of reasons to hire a life coach, there are also several reasons NOT to hire a life coach.

Don’t hire a life coach if you are a person who. . . .

  • Wants to be told what to do.
  • Is already living your best life, satisfied with where you are, or see no room for improvement.
  • Hates change.
  • Does not want to manage or improve your relationships.
  • Needs/wants therapy or counseling.
  • Do not see life coaching as a worthwhile investment of time, resource, money, and willingness to do the work.

On the other hand, hiring a coach can help you to…

  • Define, vision, purpose and action.
  • Turn potential energy into kinetic action.
  • Gain clarity and keep your focus.
  • Adopt an attitude of personal accountability/responsibility.
  • Save you time and wasted effort.
  • Increase your confidence and motivation.
  • Develop a growth/benefit mindset.
  • Nurture, grow and empower your life.
  • Improve your leadership skills.
  • Boost your overall wellbeing.
