What do coaches, teachers, advisors, counselors, priests, and rabbis have in common? A couple of things. They're professionals with specialized skills and they help people. Sometimes they help people through relationship problems, and sometimes they serve as role models. And if we want to learn a particular skill, like playing the guitar, we use their expertise to help us improve. After all, they've been down the road we're on and they're willing to share their knowledge.

Coach For Life trains others to be "coaches." Once you've completed the Coach For Life program, you become a coach for others. Coaches get paid for "providing ongoing support to other people so that they may have and be more of what they want in their lives."

Ordinarily, coaching others is a skill that you pick up here and there, with only a few reaching the ranks of a true professional. But, Coach For Life has managed to break down the coaching process into a learnable program. And just how does Coach For Life define coaching? They define coaching as "an ongoing relationship which focuses on the client taking action toward the realization of their vision, goals or desires." Coach for Life "uses a process of inquiry and personal discovery to build the client's level of awareness and responsibility, and provide the client with structure, support and feedback."

Coach For Life trains professionals in the skills of coaching, the philosophy of coaching and the means to create a sacred space held for the client in the coaching relationship.

Professional coaching isn't for everyone but Coach for Life just might be the catalyst to put your life on the right road and help you achieve your own personal success by helping others achieve theirs.
