- Reasons for wanting to get into coaching.
- The type of coaching you want to do.
- The correct guidance to put it all together.
This would just be an overview that would hopefully get you to have a clear understanding. Coaching is the most rewarding and fulfilling career in the world. Ok without further ado let’s dive in.
1. Reasons for wanting to get into coaching.
Well first thing first before you get into coaching, there must be a strong reason why you want to do coaching. Because if there isn’t one, you might not be able to achieve that goal of being a highly effective successful coach.
By a strong reason, I mean your why, a strong why, a deeper why. Because if you don’t have one, you might easily quit if it gets tougher while still in the process. Some of the reasons I’ve seen people getting into coaching is to genuinely want to help other people. You find that the person has overcome a certain challenge that has transformed their life for the better. And now they want to help others do the same thing. And the way to achieve that is with coaching, so they get into coaching.
This is just one example reason of why someone gets into coaching, there are many different reasons. But with this one, you can see a strong why. And with this why you can see that a person is likely to go all in and succeed because they really want to help others overcome what they’ve overcome.
2. The type of coaching you want to do.
Secondly, you need to know what kind of coaching you want to do. Because there are all sorts of different coachings out there. There is health coaching, life coaching, dating coaching, business coaching, etc. And this is why the first or previous point above become crucial. Because the reason why you want to do coaching also helps you know the kind of coaching you want to do. You can coach in any topic or area as long as you know that topic or area well enough that you can coach and guide people to the desired end results.
3. The correct guidance to put it all together.
Then the third part is to find the correct guidance that will show you the correct steps to take to start or build your coaching to succeed with it. And this part of finding the right guidance to do it right to succeed is the tricky one because there is so much information out there. It’s important to get the right guidance because it will save you a lot of time.
There are 2 common ways that people become coaches and start online coaching businesses. But in order to succeed with your coaching in either of these ways, you would need to have points 1 and 2 above intact.
The 2 common ways are:
A. Go to a coaching institution or school to train for that specific coaching such as life coaching, health coaching, fitness coaching, etc then get certified to coach in that area. Once certified you then need guidance that would help you put it together as a coaching business in order to help others or to run it as a business to get paying clients.
The correct guidance will entail things such as:
a) Aligning your coaching with your target market needs.
