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.
