Life coaches who work with executives in weekly telephone sessions may charge $300 to $400 per hour. Coaches with corporate clients may coach senior executives or get paid thousands of dollars a day to lead training programs to help employees reduce burnout, improve customer service, get along with co-workers, and maximize performance. Fees for training programs are typically charged by the day, with trainers charging anywhere from $500 to $7,000 or more per day.
What is the Role of a Life Coach?
As a life coach you will help people identify what is holding them back from having everything they want in business or life, and coach them to overcome those challenges. Coaches have “clients” instead of “patients.” Instead of telling clients what they should do, you will act as a facilitator to help them figure out solutions for themselves. As a life coach, your job is to listen, to ask questions, and to give honest feedback.
