People often ask me: What are the differences between life and leadership coaching?
While the core competencies are the same, there is a distinction.
In general, people choose life coaching because they want to move forward in some area that mostly pertains to challenges in life. Examples:
- Health & Wellness
- Spiritual Formation
- Life Transitions
- Major life decisions
- Developing a life pla
In general, people choose leadership coaching because they want to move forward in some area that mostly pertains to challenges in leadership, their ability to lead, and or their company/business. Examples:
- Growing your business
- Building a team
- Executive decisions
- Organizational development
- Discovering team dynamics
- Impact ROI
- Business planning
- Manage business/teams
Life or Leadership Coaching?
If you’re a coach, and you’re trying to decide what type of coaching you’ll offer, consider the following.
- Do you enjoy seeing people improve their relationships with family and friends?
- Is it a blessing to you to walk alongside someone as they discern the best choices in life?
- Are you passionate about helping people transition from functioning to thriving in their daily lives?
If you answered “yes” to most of these, life coaching would most likely be a great fit for you.
- Do you enjoy partnering with business owners or leaders to build and grow their businesses?
- Is it a blessing to you to walk alongside someone as they discern the best ways to manage their team?
- Are you passionate about seeing business leaders maximize their potential and their ROI?
If you answered “yes” to most of these, leadership coaching would most likely be a great fit for you.
And if you answered “yes” to most in both categories, you’d most likely find a great fit with either or both!
