Are you considering a career change? If you have been thinking about a second career or a side gig that offers more personal fulfilment, becoming a Life Coach may be exactly what you are looking for. A coaching career offers many benefits, not only for your clients, but also for you personally.
A life coach career offers the opportunity for transformative change. You will experience firsthand how limiting beliefs and one’s mindset can impact whether we see things positively or negatively.
Often, we think a life coach is there to provide solutions to your problems, however, this isn’t the case. A life coach is there to change the lens on the way you see your problems. They are there to shine a spotlight on issues you are already familiar with but have trouble seeing. Through this newfound awareness and clarity, a life coach helps people progress to attain greater fulfilment in their relationships, careers, and daily lives.
In achieving long-lasting transformative change, a life coach helps direct their mind towards what is positive and possible.
What Are the Characteristics of a Great Life Coach?
Compassionate – A great coach has compassion for their clients’ personal circumstances. They can empathize and show kindness in any situation.

Supportive – A coach provides a safe space for their client. Being supportive and nurturing provides comfort and is an important characteristic of a great coach.
