Life Coaching Questions
“What Can a Denver Life Coach Help ME With?”
People seek Life Coaching for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes our clients have specific concerns that they want to resolve, like loosing weight, changing careers, or developing healthier habits. Sometimes people come to Life Coaching because they want to feel happier, more productive, or more in control of their lives.
Because Denver is such a progressive, socially conscious and health conscious community, we often have clients seek our services to help them become their “best selves” with a meaningful and fulfilling life that reflects their values.
But the real reason for — and the real value of — good Life Coaching is that it helps you be more successful in achieving whatever goals you have for yourself. To have an accountability partner and a guide that can offer you feedback, new ideas, and emotional support during your change process can make all the difference between your creating a new reality…. or continuing to spin your wheels and wish that things were different.
In general, Life Coaching is always appropriate when you have specific goals that you’re working towards. But in particular, here are some examples of the specific issues we address that help our Denver life coaching clients and online life coaching clients achieve success:
Can Life Coaching Help Me Be More Productive?
Definitely. No one takes a class in school that teaches you how to be productive and get things done. Often, that’s one of the reasons that people seek out a coach in the first place — because they feel like they are not making progress on their own. Often, people get by doing the “old way” until they encounter a new phase of life that pushes them past their limits– then they start to flounder. Coaching can teach you the skills and strategies you need to function at a higher level.
Your coach will help you figure out what isn’t currently working, in terms of your productivity process, and help you revise it. (Or, help you build a whole new process from the ground up, if that is what’s required). We’ll address the mental, emotional, and behavioral aspects of productivity, and help you design effective new strategies to get things done.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Get Healthier?
Yes. Good life coaching can help you understand the mental, emotional, and circumstantial obstacles that have been in the way of successfully taking care of yourself, and help you eliminate them. Coaching also provides the structure, assignments, insight and accountability you need to follow a long-term plan like committing to eating healthy foods, cultivating respect for your body, learning to listen to yourself, as well as cultivating intuitive eating styles that support your health long term.
The most helpful aspect of health-focused coaching is that it can provide you with new self-awareness that helps you cultivate compassion and understanding for yourself. That in turn can lead to stronger motivation for change as well as a renewed sense of strength and commitment. Perhaps most importantly, life coaching that focuses on your health and wellness also offers both structure and accountability. We all know how easy it can be to make plans and then not follow through with them. When you partner with an expert coach who knows how to help you stay on track, it will be much easier to cultivate the healthy lifestyle that nourishes your mind, body, heart and soul.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Stop Bad Habits?
Absolutely. We all know how easy it can be to pick up a bad habits that seem to sabotage your success. Your coach can help you understand how your negative habits may currently be serving you so that you can understand the root cause of why you do them. Then, you’ll be in a position of power to make real and effective changes in the way you do things. You coach may work with you to develop new skills and strategies, based on your self awareness, that allow you to meet your needs in healthy ways so that you can cultivate healthy habits. We walk along side of you, helping provide the accountability and motivation required for long-term success.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Get Organized?
Many people enter coaching feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, and scattered. This can manifest itself physically, mentally and emotionally. Our clients may start coaching having poor time management skills, and always feel rushed and late. Many people come to us for help with things like developing new systems that allow them to feel more productive and in control of their time and energy.
Great coaching helps you understand the root causes of why you do what you do, so that you can become empowered to make different choices. Coaching can teach you the mental, emotional, and behavioral strategies you need to practice in order to get your life under control. We can look at what isn’t currently working, and help you craft a plan to change it. Then you’ll get assignments that will guide you, step-by-step, and help you create your new organized, under-control reality.
Can Life Coaching Help Me With My Career?
Many people seek out career coaching in order to figure out what they want to be when they grow up. Through personality tests and structured assignments, your coach can help you figure out the intersection of your talents, interests, and abilities — and match those with careers.
Once you have clarity around what you were “put here to do” your coach can help you design a plan to make it happen. Your coach will help you work your plan, step by step, until you’re living in your new reality.
But even beyond “what do I want to do with my life” career coaching, coaching offers many opportunities to help you with your professional development. A great career coach can help you develop yourself so that you can be genuinely successful. Many of our career coaching clients seek out our coaching services in Denver (and online) when they need to step up their game. Perhaps you’ve gotten a promotion, or are rising into a management position? Now you have to learn how to lead, and be a strong inspiring leader for others. That requires strong communication skills and a high degree of emotional intelligence.
Engaging in leadership coaching, emotional intelligence coaching, and professional development coaching can help you develop the skills and practices that allow you to grow into the highest level of your potential as a professional on the path of empowered self-actualization, and meaningful success.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Feel Happier?
Yes. Most people start coaching because they feel dissatisfied with some aspect of their lives. And of course, that makes them feel unhappy. In fact, unhappiness is a pre-requisite for positive change. Nobody changes when things are fine.
As you address old ways of being that are no longer making you feel happy, and start creating a new life for yourself you will feel happier. Your coaching experience will help you feel increasingly “congruent” meaning that your outside reality matches up with your needs, values, and aspirations. For some, that kind of peace and satisfaction is the very definition of happiness.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Have Better Relationships?
If you’ve become aware that negative patterns keep happening in your relationships, Life Coaching can help you figure out why you’re getting the results you are getting. As Tony Robbins says, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” We help you figure out what’s been going wrong, and the new strategies that can help you get better results in the future.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Have More Friends?
No one ever really teaches you, specifically, how to form and maintain friendships. When you’re young, its relatively easy– you just fall into friendships. As an adult, you have to work at it. For many people, this feels difficult, and they feel lonely as a result.
Coaching can help you figure out what’s missing from your current friend-building skill-set, and teach you the strategies you need to get better results. Coaches walk by your side as you experiment with new tools, and provide you with support as you take social risks.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Start a Business?
Starting a new business is an aspiration for many people. But it’s a big, fat, hairy deal and it’s really hard to do in practice. Building a business is like imagining a staircase in your head…. and then actually walking up it, one step at a time.
Coaching can help you prioritize the thousands of tiny tasks that the CEO and chief bottle-washer (you) need to do every day in order to get traction. Coaches assess for any skills-deficits that are getting in the way of your forward progress, and support them. Most of all, coaches walk with you over the long haul– helping you keep sight of the prize and keep up your motivation over the months and years of your journey towards success in entrepreneurship.
Can Life Coaching Help Me Succeed?
Yes. No matter what area of your life you’d like to improve, coaching can help you. The principles of coaching (assessment, teaching, motivation and accountability) can be applied to just about everything. The most powerful, successful people in the world rely on their coaches to help them be the very best they can be. You deserve this kind of support too.
