Over 91% of All Life Coaching Is Conducted Over The Telephone.
Here are the many reasons why.
1. Telephone life coaching virtually assures success.
Because you will be connected with your ideal coach. The odds that your ideal coach will be within reasonable travel distance are extremely low.
With telephone coaching, you will be able to select from coaches located almost anywhere, so you can focus on how well they meet your ideal coach requirements, without geographical limitations. One of the 6 keys essential to successful coaching is that clients are connected with their ideal coaches.
Telephone coaching makes sure the ideal connection can be made.
2. Telephone life coaching assures that the client-coach relationship is an equal partnership
Where you (the client) are the center of attention. Clients who see their coaches will automatically consider the coaches to be superior or inferior to them based on their physical appearances.
You will not open up to coaches whom you feel are superior to you because of fear of judgment. Likewise you will not open up to coaches you feel are inferior to you due to disrespect for their capabilities.
Telephone coaching is the great equalizer. The telephone allows the coaching experience to be focused entirely on you, as it is intended.
3. Telephone life coaching is much more effective.
You will answer the open ended coaching questions more completely and more honestly over the telephone. You will not be distracted by the physical mannerisms or “tells” of the coaches, because you cannot see your coaches.
You will only face silence after hearing coaching questions and you have only one place to look for the real answers, within yourself, which is exactly where the truth as been waiting to come out.
4. Telephone life coaching is much more efficient.
You will be able to conduct your coaching sessions from any quiet, private and relaxed locations you wish. Neither you nor your coach will have to overcome the frustrations or the delays and hassles of traveling.
You and your coach get into coaching right away, without having to deal with the normal social graces required in face-to-face meetings.
5. Telephone life coaching is less costly.
You will not have to pay for the travel expenses for your coach or yourself, and you will not waste your valuable time traveling.
You will pay lower coaching fees and use less of your time during the sessions, because telephone coaching requires less time than face-to-face coaching.
6. Telephone life coaching is much more confidential.
The private and secure place you choose to be during coaching sessions will assure complete confidentiality. No one will know who you are talking to, let alone what you are talking about.
7. Telephone life coaching is more enjoyable.
You will be able to be yourself in private and have more fun doing it. You will be able to enjoy the moment without concern for others watching or listening.
Coaching over SKYPE
Coaching over SKYPE can be just as effective as Telephone coaching when the VIDEO is TURNED OFF!
Turning off the Video converts SKYPE into a audio (Voice only) communication means, thus eliminating the distractions of visual contacts. AND turning off the Video greatly enhances the audio connection, because it eliminates the huge usage of bandwidth for video, and allows the audio stream to be cleaner.
It is my belief that one of the untold the reasons the life coaching industry developed and grew so fast under the efforts of Thomas Leonard was the more common use of the cell phone.
People could easily find secure, private, and comfortable places to conduct their coaching sessions by using their cell phone. They were no longer confined to use land-lines that either allowed others to listen in or that were placed in public non-secure locations.
