Who Is A Life Coach?
Coaching is the art & practice of guiding a person or group from ‘where they are now’ to ‘where they can be & want to be’. Coaching is all about unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their growth in their desired area.
Coaching aims at Transformation, unlike most of the other development avenues like training which mainly focuses on imparting external knowledge to induce some change.
A life coach is someone that looks to empower others by helping them make, meet and exceed goals in both their personal and professional lives.They are like a supportive friend and a trusted adviser rolled into one.
And in Hirav Shah’s words- A life coach is a catalyst who can help people spark extraordinary results.
Hirav Shah as we all know is India’s most trusted Astro-Business Strategist, Business Coach, Corporate Guru and Adviser.
What Does A Life Coach Do?
Well, we will discuss that in a bit, but first this.
As we all know Hirav Shah is an accomplished Corporate Coach and Astro-Business Strategist whose opinions, analysis and answers have made many struggling businesses and people reach out to their next level, and therefore he can be easily called a great life coach, right !!
Yes, very much, since he has been instrumental in the prosperity and progress of numerous businesses and businessmen.
So, as per the man himself, Hirav Shah – Life Coaching is essentially a series of powerful & intense conversations between a coach & a Coachee, wherein the coach uses a systematic step-by-step process involving critical questioning & active listening, enabling the coachee to get clarity around “what he or she actually wants” and then, together, developing an action plan to achieve it, followed by actively supporting Coachee in overcoming any obstacles in the way to achieve his or her goals.
Let us also understand, what the Life Coach is “NOT” about & what Life Coach “IS” about…Life coach is NOT an Adviser or Consultant or a Therapist, Avers Shah.
A Life Coach is an Extensively Trained, Skillful & Knowledgeable person with specialized Tools & Techniques who assists you in looking at a bigger & holistic picture & then collaborates with you in exploring specific solutions for your life.
Life Coach supports you, motivates you, & offers you fact based feed forward while believing in your abilities to meet the goals you have set for yourself. He helps someone go from where they are, to where they want to be faster and/or easier than they otherwise would.
Meanwhile, all kinds of people use life coaches, including actors, business leaders, creatives, entrepreneurs, executives, homemakers, managers, professionals, small business owners and start-up pioneers. Hugely successful public figures from Oprah Winfrey to Bill Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio and Hugh Jackman to Bill Gates all work extensively with A Life Coach.
