Coaching – An Extraordinary Career

What is Coaching?

Coaching has become one of the most sough-after professions in recent times. A mix of therapy and consulting, life coaching also draws techniques from sociology, career counseling, and management training. Coaching is seen as an ongoing, non-judgmental partnership between the coach and the client. Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what their obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make their life be what they want it to be.

Who is a Coach?

A Life coach works one-on-one with a client to support personal growth, professional growth, behavior modification, and goal-setting. Based on the premise that most people can achieve their goals if properly guided, a life coach will act as a mentor, assisting the client in the process of taking the life-improving actions necessary to take control of his or her future. A life coach does not focus on reviewing past events or analyzing previous failures. Through a series of attainable steps, a life coach helps clients overcome fears and achieve balance in both their personal and professional life.

Life Coaches can help their clients identify – and then put in place the steps needed to realize – their dreams. This can be a highly exhilarating experience, for both the client and the Coach as obstacles disappear and goals are achieved. Using a Coach is becoming an increasingly preferred way of making dramatic changes in attitude, performance, and well-being.

Coaches come from all walks of life and have various social and educational backgrounds. There are no prerequisites to becoming a successful coach. The Symbiosis Success Conversion Coaching Program has enrolled engineers, doctors, managers, executives, computer professionals, artists, finance and accounting professionals and many more.
It is extremely important for future clients to distinguish between coaches who are professionally trained and/or accredited and those who “hang their name plate” out as a coach.

The Business of Coaching - Financial Independence and Flexibility

One of the many attractions of Coaching as a career is that it has the flexibility to fit in with many different lifestyles; it is a worthwhile engagement for people looking to change careers, for people seeking extra income through a part time career, for the retired, for housewives, and for anyone else. Since a Coach can work just a few hours a week at first, perhaps just in the evenings, and then gradually expand their client list until Coaching becomes a full time career, the amount of flexibility that this career affords is unsurpassed.

Our flexible, downloadable training classes are designed to fit the schedules of everyone from busy mothers seeking a flexible career to people looking to either change their careers or supplement their existing jobs with additional income.
