What are the benefits of having a coach?

Coaching is a big industry, but have you ever utilised the services of a business or life coach? You may think you’re doing just fine without a coach, so why would you need one? But, there are lots of surprising benefits of having a coach, as well as the more obvious ones.

Let’s look at a few key benefits of hiring a coach.

Improve your vision of the future

A lot of clients come for coaching because they feel a little lost in their life or at work, and they’re not sure why. Nine times out of 10 it’s because they can’t see where they’re going, what their plans for the future are. This makes it difficult to plan your path going forward if you don’t know what your destination is.

 Help you make decisions

I’m not saying that a life or business coach will make the tough decisions for you, that’s not what we’re here for. However, the support of a coach will give you the confidence and clarity to make your own decisions, even ones you’ve been struggling with.

“Sarah wasn’t afraid to challenge me when necessary, particularly when I was pontificating and struggling to make a decision.”

 Help you identify your strengths

We all have things we’re good at and things we’re not so good at. The problem is that most people focus too much on their weaknesses and not enough on their strengths. Working with a coach can help you identify your real strengths and how you can work with those to improve your life or career.

“Prior to the sessions with Sarah I think I’ve been too distracted and concerned by my weaknesses; I often took my weaknesses out of context hindering my career progression.”
