9780393705058: Becoming a Professional Life Coach: Lessons from the Institute of Life Coach Training

Personal and professional coaching, which has emerged as a powerful career in the last several years, has shifted the paradigm of how people who seek help with life transitions find a "helper" to partner with them in designing their desired future.

No matter what kind of sub-specialty a coach might have, life coaching is the basic operating system: a whole-person, client-centered approach. Here, Pat Williams, who has been a leader in the life coaching movement, has co-authored another essential book for therapists working as coaches. Becoming a Professional Life Coach draws on the wisdom of years of collective experience that have gone into designing the curriculum for the Institute for Life Coach Training. This curriculum has trained therapists and psychologists around the world to add coaching to their current businesses. This book presents the essential elements of life coach training program in a content-rich form that is equivalent to a graduate-level education in the field.

Review:

“As a career counselor in private practice, I am always on the lookout for new tools and techniques to use with my clients. [This book] did not disappoint me. The book contains practical reminders of the basics of coaching and new ideas for improving coaching practices. . . . The authors guide readers through the fundamentals of coaching and do a great job in pointing out how counseling and coaching are similar and how they are different. . . . Readers obtain a potpourri of advice for becoming life coaches, as well as a refresher course on a number of important psychological theories and practices. They should find this book a pragmatic reference to accompany them on their transition from counseling to coaching.”
