Life Skills Coaching
Life Coaching/Mentoring and Case Management
The International Coach Federation “defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential” (ICF, 2015).
Life coaching will include an individual who will work one-on-one (1:1) with individuals and/or small groups to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses, set goals, encourage growth, and work out a plan with actionable steps to complete the set goals. Life coaches will submit summary reports of their activities at the end of the month.
Why life coaching? According to an article published on askmen.com, “A life coach is more of a partnership than anything else. It is a support system with one goal in mind: improving your quality of life.” A life coach is a cheerleader, an encourager, a compass, and a team player. The life coach will cheer the client on to make necessary changes, overcome hurdles, and continue moving forward. The life coach will encourage the client when stressed, overwhelmed, discouraged and feeling hopeless. The life coach will remind the client what the goals are and help the client stay on track on achieving those goals. The life coach will work with the client to set goals and develop a plan for the client to meet goals, set new goals, and continue forward.
Life coaches are held to the strictest confidentiality, not discussing or sharing client information outside the coach and coach supervisor, unless otherwise directed by a court of law. Life coaches are required to conform to a code of ethics developed by Life Force Professional Society, a partner program through Summit International, and other governing bodies.
