4 Essential Life Coaching Skills
If you want to become a life coach, you will need several skills to enable you to achieve success. Fortunately, just like good sales people, great life coaches are made, not born. Like anything else, all the life coaching skills you need can be learned.
The best life coaches have the skills and knowledge to help others achieve what they want in life. They gain these skills from studying the best life coaching courses.
Make sure that you choose an excellent course too, because it means the difference between success and failure as a life coach.
The course you choose should include a wealth of life coaching skills, including the following:
NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming)
NLP enables you to help your clients identify and change certain thoughts and behaviours. This is virtually impossible to do without using NLP, as those behaviours are controlled by the subconscious mind. The technique is widely regarded by experts in the field as being a crucial element of life coaching.
Circle of Excellence
Circle of Excellence training is vital in enabling you to build successful relationships with clients, and to teach your clients how to do the same. This training gives you the techniques you need to build a rapport with anyone you meet. It is an essential skill that will help you build your life coaching business and teach your clients how to get ahead in life.
Effective Listening Skills
Effective listening is one of the life coaching skills that you must master if you want to become a successful life coach. Many people think they listen properly, but they don’t hear. Effective listening skills involve more than knowing what was said. To be an effective listener, you need to be able to make others feel heard and understood. You also need them to know that you empathise with their situation.
Using the Right and Left Hemisphere of the Brain Together
You may have heard people claim that they use their right or left brain more. It is true, that most people do use one hemisphere of the brain more than the other. The trouble is, in order to overcome fears, achieve success and make the right decisions, you need to use both halves of your brain together. A good life coaching course will teach you how to do this. This one skill alone will help you to transform your clients’ lives, as well as your own.
So Where Do You Start?
These are just 4 of the important life coaching skills you will need to acquire before you launch your life coaching career. There are many other skills to master too. So where do you begin?
