Course Description

Coaching has long been an accepted method of improving performance, specifically in sports.  The excellent results shown in the sports arena have been expanded to those in executive positions in business. 

For the last fifteen to twenty years, many more people have been exposed to the idea of coaching in all aspects of their lives.  Coaches must have the necessary life experiences and communication skills to be totally present to their clients, to really listen to them, and provide a safe arena to express ideas.

This course will focus on how to be a Life Coach. Life Coaching is an occupation where you work with individuals who wish to make a change in their lives.  By working with clients to evaluate their lives on a personal, professional, and spiritual level, you help them to make realistic goals and establish the necessary steps required to reach those goals.

As a life coach, you will join the client in focusing on his or her goals.  Together, you will formulate ways to approach those goals, and in a nonthreatening way help your client be held accountable to those goals. As a life coach, you must be constantly observant and flexible, when one approach to a perceived problem is not working, then you must be able to formulate another approach.  Similarly, if something worked well for a client, your job will be to help your client incorporate that successful approach in other areas of their lives.  Additionally, as a life coach, you will work with your client to identify and name areas of strength and talent and help your client to strengthen those.  Understanding the mechanism of motivation will be the key to your success.

"If we go down into ourselves,

we find that we possess exactly what we desire."

~Simone Weil

Course Lessons

  • Lesson 1: Life Coaching Basics

    Those on the road of life coaching are looking to better themselves; in life, at work, and in creating a better balance between the two.
  • Lesson 2: Responsibilities of a Life Coach

    At least, life coaches do not find it hard while they are coaching a client because they have taught themselves to be wholly and completely involved in the coaching process and do not allow outside thoughts to interfere.
  • Lesson 3: Integrity and Responsibility

    Being a life coach means you are whole, you have integrity, you are authentic, and you work at your life as hard as you expect your clients to work at theirs.
  • Lesson 4: Spirituality

    Not to be confused with religion, morality or ethics, spirituality is that yearning inside of us for something greater than ourselves.
  • Lesson 5: Communications

    Communication seems as though it should be a very easy task; but in reality, it is one of the most complicated activities we do every day.
  • Lesson 6: Goal -setting

    The most successful people in the world reached that place in life because they learned early in life how to set and achieve their goals.
  • Lesson 7: Attitude

    We all want good results from the effort that we put forth. For the most part, we are willing to put in the necessary hard work, and most of us know we have to pay the price to achieve success and happiness.
  • Lesson 8: Looking Inside

    We are getting to some of the really intense life coaching skills you are going to need in your job. You will have to be encouraging, a sounding board, and a safe haven for your clients.
  • Lesson 9: Leadership Training

    You also will have clients who need to learn what leadership is about. You will have to help them recognize good leader role models in their lives to use as examples.
  • Lesson 10: Procrastination

    The basic definition of procrastination is putting off doing something that could be done now until a later date and time. What makes this procrastination is that we usually put off essential tasks in favor of doing nonessential tasks.
  • Lesson 11: Overcoming Procrastination

    As we learned in Lesson 10, procrastination is a problem that can affect many areas of our lives. The real truth is that most of us procrastinate about something.
  • Lesson 12: Why We Resist Change

    Scientists at MIT have proven that we repeat certain behaviors because our brain is in a "rut" of sorts. Because of this, it is often very difficult for us to change our behavior.
  • Lesson 13: How to Change

    Change requires some work, a vision, some strategy, and commitment. It requires that you live for today, reflect on the past, and prepare for the future.
  • Lesson 14: Setting Yourself Up to Win

    As implied, personal development is a way for you to develop personally.
  • Lesson 15: Recognizing Success

    If we do not stop to look at our accomplishments, we could become discouraged because our horizon is just such an imaginary goal that is constantly moving out ahead of us.
