Why Do People Hire Coaches?
Coaches can be people who have had enough successes in their lives, in a particular field, that they feel they are qualified to coach others. Sometimes, coaches are educated or certified in a particular area, but most of the time they’re just ordinary people passing on their own life experience.
- A coach is someone who will hold you accountable. If you set goals and then try to achieve them yourself, you are probably not going to hold yourself very accountable.
- A coach also provides a reflective surface for you to talk to. Sometimes, all people need is for someone to listen to them, and they can figure out the solution themselves.
- A coach is also a great resource if you aren’t good at planning or keeping track of things.
- A coach has been in your shoes and knows what things to avoid and what things you should do.
