Things to Consider When Looking for a Life Coach

Jul 18th 2014 at 12:25 AM

Many people who struggle to find a source of motivation to unleash their true potential or need help with identifying their goals and objectives in life, turn to a life coach for guidance.

A life coach is someone who interacts with healthy people and helps them improve their way of life. They help people focus on their goals, regulate their behavior, and show them how to get from where they are to where they want to be.

Before choosing someone who is going to have a monumental impact on their lives, people should consider certain factors and qualities that a good life coach must possess:

A Good Match

Life coaches can deal with different areas – some might specialize in relationships while others in career management. A coach might be good for one person but not for another – it depends on a person’s own nature and preferences. Therefore, it important to determine the area of life where a person needs coaching to choose a life coach accordingly.

Interpersonal Skills

An effective life coach will inherently have good interpersonal skills. Their responsibility of motivating and guiding people is all based on effective communication and interaction. Words are the power of a life coach which they use to uplift, inspire and motivate people. It is very important to have a life coach with whom a person can relate to, be comfortable with and understand their approach and method. Therefore, a good life coach should be good at communicating with people, adopting different techniques to connect with them and know what kind of conversation will impact different people.

To find a life coach with whom a person can resonate with, it is best to have a direct one-to-one conversation with a potential coach and determine whether his approach and style is going to be effective or not.


A life coach does not need to have a license to practice Life Coaching – anyone can call themselves a life coach. However, there are various trainings programs and credential organizations that ensure that life coaching is done both ethically and professionally. A certification, however, will not guarantee that a life coach’s techniques and coaching style will be effective. Sometimes even a non-certified person can be a great coach, so it is all about how empathetic they are, how good they are at helping people find their purpose in life and at motivating them to achieve that purpose.


A good coach will have satisfied clients who successfully found a new direction in life or discovered their goals after contracting the services of the life coach. Ask around for references – neighbors, friends, colleagues – they might know a credible life coach who helped them bring significant changes in their lives.
