25 Benefits of Working with a Coach

Coaching can help you set and achieve the goals that are most important to you.  But being in a professional coaching partnership offers you so much more than setting goals.

Here are 25 benefits you can experience when you work with a professional coach.

  1. Identify your unique strengths and gifts and then put them to work for you.   This insight alone can transform the way you plan your career and your life.
  2. Focus on your motivating values — the aspects of life that you care about the most — and then orient your decisions and actions around them.
  3. Uncover unmet needs that can cause you to become sidetracked from your goals.
  4. Establish firm boundaries for people and situations that challenge or drain you.
  5. Gain clarity and focus for how you want to design every aspect of your life.  Coaching helps you to reclaim control of your life.
  6. Find direction.  Every important journey needs a road map.  Our work together will help you create a strategy to get to where you want to go.
  7. Shed excess baggage.  To make room for what you want in your life, you may need to let go of what no longer fits.
  8. Maximize your time.  Coaching shines at helping you develop  schedules, routines and habits that will bring you closer to your goals, without burning you out.
  9. Set your sights high.  Working with a coach gives you a partner for gaining the courage and confidence to dream bigger dreams, and then turn those dreams into your new reality.
  10. Eliminate limiting beliefs.  Identify those beliefs that are holding you back and re-write them so they are no longer a barrier to your progress.
  11. Follow through.  Coaching gives you built-in accountability to someone who is genuinely invested in your success and happiness.
  12. Take action.  When you just can’t get yourself to take the actions towards the things you want the most, coaching can provide inspiration and motivation.
  13. Reconnect with your passions and dreams.  Coaching will help you identify and start enjoying the passions that make you feel alive.
  14. Honor your purpose.  If you don’t wake up every day with a clear sense of purpose, coaching excels at helping you identify it.
  15. Develop unconditional support.  Creating an amazing life alone is hard work.  Coaching provides built in support for everything you aspire to do.
  16. Take better care of yourself.  One of the foundational principles of coaching is improving your self-care.
  17. Create reserves.  Running on fumes won’t get you to your ideal life.  Coaching encourages you to build up reserves everywhere in your life, including time, space, money, support, and more.
  18. Eliminate energy drains.  In coaching terms, these are known as tolerations and they can derail your plans.   Dealing with them will open up your energy to focus on what’s truly important to you.
  19. Develop your intuition.   There are times in your life when you need to listen to your inner guidance.  Your intuition will never steer you wrong, but you have to listen to it for it to work.
  20. Overcome obstacles.  Journeys sometimes have roadblocks and detours along the way.  Coaching keeps you moving forward towards your destination.
  21. Set higher standards.  Why do you accept less than what you really want?
    Coaching helps you to raise your standards for yourself and others.
  22. Confront your fears.  Fear can let you know when there’s danger ahead, but it can also prevent you from trying a new path.  Coaching will help you confront and conquer your fears.
  23. Make better decisions.  Your life is defined by the choices you make.  If you’re unhappy with any part of your life, coaching will empower you to make better decisions.
  24. Gain confidence.  Taking steps towards your dreams and goals can be daunting.  But with a coach by your side you will learn how to take action consistently.
  25. And yes, coaching also excels at helping you with goal setting, life planning and reaching for your personal best.
