Questions When Looking for a Lightworker Business Coach
You will never know just how energized working with a coach can make you, how sharp and productive you can be, and how much fun you can have in the process, until you have experienced it. It can also be a frustrating experience if you are in a coaching program that you have outgrown.
If you find yourself struggling in your Lightworker Business or feeling stuck, it may time to invest in a business coach to help get you on track. A good coach will listen to your concerns, give you an honest assessment, and help you leverage your strengths to maximize your success momentum.
In finding a Lightworker Business Coach, here are some key questions to ask.
- Ask a prospective coach "Who is their ideal client"? Part of checking for a good fit with a potential coach is hearing them describe their ideal client. Does that ideal client sound like you?
- Do they have a comprehensive program to support getting your change process started from the right place, building a success momentum plan, providing ongoing support (both energetic and practical) and offer business building fundamentals support.
- Have they worked with Lightworkers before? You want to know if they appreciate the challenges Lightworkers can face in growing the success of their practice.
- Am I coachable? Am I ready to hear feedback and apply it. Seeing your own blind spots is a huge benefit of receiving coaching.
- Ask them "How Can You Help Me?" You want to hear about their approach, their style and understand the depth of their experience. You want to know that they have "been there" so that they know from real experience.
- How will they help you define success for you? You likely are considering a coach because you want to be more successful. You may want to ask them what success looks like to them. You want to check whether this fits your nature and goals.
- Are they offering group coaching or private, 1-1 coaching? While group coaching may require less of an investment, online group settings are not for everyone. If your nature is somewhat shy or not the first person to speak up, you may feel left out in group coaching settings. Ask what coaching format a coach employs.
- Do you feel chemistry with the prospective Coach? It's important to feel that you could work with you on your business. They need to be a person you feel you can open up to about business issues too. That's what they are there to help you solve.
- How do I know coaching will work for me? No two coaches are the same, no two clients are the same, and no two issues that can be resolved with coaching expertise will be the same. Cookie cutter coaching (the one-sized fits all often promoted online) doesn't work for lots of lightworkers. Finding the right coach makes a huge difference in how well you'll progress. The deeper question to ask yourself is whether you are ready to dig in, receive direction and take action. Without those, coaching is not likely to produce the success you desire.
The Bottom Line
Those who hire coaches are ready to go places and get things done. They might not always know exactly where they are going or exactly what it is they plan to do, but they have a sense of purpose and a commitment to themselves that can be amplified considerably by working with a coach.
That is why they hire a coach, to get more out of themselves toward their business success momentum than they ever thought possible by working on their own.
