I think the thing that I do very, very well is to have real, honest conversations with people who have to make decisions that are really life changing. I think that’s one thing that a lot of people who get into coaching do not do well. I do not think that it takes a lot of work. I think that many of them feel that life coaching is not a very satisfying job. I find that, when I go with people or other types of people — you have to work hard to be a good life coach.
I have the privilege of having been a life coach, and as the years went by and I knew they were not going to be as satisfying as they could be, and I got the opportunity to be a coach, and I know how hard it can be to be a coach, and how you have to work really hard all day every day, and not sleep well, and have so many other issues. It can take a lot of work.
I don’t think that you need a PhD or a doctorate in psychology to be a good life coach. I think that a lot of our job as coaches, and especially as life coaches, we have to be very sensitive to people who are not very sensitive. Many times, when life coaches ask the question, who do you think could make a good life coach, or who want to be a life coach, they’re asking what kind of person would I like to have as a life coach, or to be coaching, or who would be a good person who I would like to be a coach?
Many times in life coaching, there are people who have a lot going on, or are very introverted, and there are some who are very social, and so many different types of personality types. I have a lot of respect for people who are sensitive, and they know how to connect with people. They make the connection without having to get into a lot of things that are not relevant to what it is to do a life coaching job. I’m sure many of you reading this are saying to yourself, “Wow, I would love to be a life coach,” and I would want to give the same level of care to those people who have different problems, who were just thinking of that as an opportunity. I would love that job, and I would give the same level of care and attention and attention to that as I would to my children.
What about coaching someone who is autistic?
