Why Hire a Life Coach?
The reason you hire a life coach is to achieve your life improving goals. (Called “Coachable Goals”). The reason your life coach coaches you is to make darn sure you DO achieve your coachable goals.
The life coaching process is a completion process. Life Coaches strive to coach themselves out of their jobs, which occurs only when YOU, their clients declare that YOU have achieved YOUR coachable goals.
A “coachable goal” is a future place you want to reach that requires you to grow and improve as a person to achieve it.
Coachable goals are only achieved through life coaching, and are sometimes considered, too good to be true, because they had been so hard to reach, before life coaching appeared. Non-coachable goals are best achieved through the other 9 human achievement processes. For example, to improve a physical skill you might employ a trainer. To improve your education, you would employ a teacher (i.e. go to school)

Life coaching is one of the 10 major personal improvement processes
These 10 are Therapy, Psychiatry, Consulting, Counseling, Teaching, Training, Mentoring, Religious Guru, Self Help, and Life Coaching, the newest of the 10.
All of these personal improvement processes have different objectives and different methods, and when conducted correctly they all work very well. The more you learn about life coaching the better you can decide whether using a life coach is right for you.
Life coaching differs dramatically from the other 9 in that the life coach is not superior to the client.

The true life coaching process remains the same, regardless of the types or labels of coachable goals targeted. And multiple types of coachable goals can easily be achieved by the same coach. No need to get specialty coaches for each different type of coachable goal.
For example a coach will always do the special things listed under “What does a life coach do?” Regardless of whether you have “business goals,” “career goals,” “leadership goals,” or “personal goals.”
There are hundreds of varied and often confusing different Types Of Life Coaching promoted for many different reasons. Most often the different “Types” are attached by coaches to best market their “niche” services.
