What is a Life Coach, well, a coach works with clients in identifying and developing skills and capabilities that are within the person. This enables them to use these skills to the best of their ability to increase their individual independence thus reducing reliance. This can be directed toward specific areas/challenges or general life and development strategies.
The way Life Coaching is different from counseling, therapy or social work is that it is a future-focused practice. Unlike therapy, coaching does not focus on examining or diagnosing the past. It focuses on effecting change in a client's current and future behavior. The goal is to help a 'normal' person be a better person.
Life Coaching has its roots in management consulting and leadership training. It also draws from sociology, psychology, positive adult development, career counseling and mentoring. A coach is an equal to the client, allowing the client (who knows best about himself) to determine his direction.
I saw the need for this type of secular service. Our community is growing and we are not any different than anyone else we just need services geared to our mind set. My coaching is reason based and grounded in reality. SecularLifeCoach.com So what do you think?

Thisbe: So felch, you're saying that the managers are in on it, and aren't just dumb?

Of course they are. I have had my carcass sold at $300/hour for consultancy while in IT. It is wholly corrupt. My managers were in endless "off site meetings" that were essentially brothel tours spanning the Pacific and Indian oceans, from Tahiti to Thailand. They all know what they are doing and they know exactly how wrong it is. "Life coaching" and "team building" is the same type of idiocy. Deborah sees a gravy train and is desperate to catch it before the real world, finally, does wake up and catch on.

Thisbe: This thought doesn't make much sense to me. If companies employ such individuals for seminars I tend to think they are wasting the company's money to achieve nothing more than confusing all of the employees of the company, including the manager who hired the consult.

Thisbe, you don't understand the "management consultancy" network. It is one of the conspiracies that is actually real - "consultancy" is just a big circle of folks that know each other and siphon money out of organisations for "training". Often for tax credits from government. It is almost masonic, and it's definitely cult like. Some social philosophers like John Ralston Saul go as far as quantifuing it as one of the greatest causes of economic inflation in modern times. A giant toilet into which hard cash is eternally being flushed for no real world return on anything.

Where's the bullying in calling more snake oil on these pages ? Another 'law of attraction' evangelist is what I see (as did the others you nuked).

Life Coaching has its roots in management consulting and leadership training.

So does the current economic disaster. Your point ?

One thing this planet does NOT need is more high powered go-getters that don't take no for an answer and want to lead another horde of "bright-sided' lemmings over a cliff. And this planet definitely does NOT need more mumbo-jumbo that claims to be different and "empowers" these imbeciles to go and play chicken with our social fabric.

How do you sleep at night ?

And if you're gonna deny you are planting spam, then you don't really need the URL (which contains nothing except a business card - no content at all) of your company for the sake of discussion.

"My coaching is reason based and grounded in reality."
"When I see things I don't like, I delete them. Just like god."

Your nonsense is getting better and better. Go find the gullible without critical thinking skills somewhere else.

Life coach: When I see things I don't like, I delete them.

Your delete finger must have blisters. Not being able to address criticism and simply removing it is called being a "weenie". What a great life coach you make. Hide from problems !!! Run away !!!

@Talia

Have I told you lately how much I love you?
Comment by Deborah Z on March 9, 2010 at 6:22pm
When I see things I don't like, I delete them. Just like god. I has nothing to do with honesty or quirky observation. It has to do with living life my way, not the way you BELIEVE I SHOULD. Bully someone else.
