One of the best ways to become a life coach is to hire a coach yourself. In fact, if you are not sure coaching is the right profession for you, definitely hire a coach first to support you in whatever goals you wish to work on. If you don’t enjoy being coached, you probably won’t enjoy becoming a coach so you might as well find that out first. The most successful coaches have a coach and new coaches in training have mentor coaches to help them build their coaching business and develop their coaching skills. Ever since I had my first coach (who helped me realize that I could be a great coach!) I have had a different coach every year or two. I’m continually growing my businesses and growing myself so it makes sense to have a coach support me in this process. The few times I’ve taken a break from coaching, I’ve noticed a drop in my productivity. All good coaches have a coach as well. Find a mentor coach.
1) Get Coaching fit
Become a model coach by working with an Accredited Mentor Coach, or if you are not sure if you aready for that commitment yet, or have scored below 90 on the Clean Sweep™ Program then we recommend that you get your own life in order first in the Coach Yourself to Success Online program, or for minimal investment start with the international best-selling book Coach Yourself to Success: 101 Tips for Reaching Your goals at Work and in Life book which is a great primer for coaching and a useful reference tool for coaches.
2) Get the best coach training.
If you enjoy working with a coach, then the next step is to get coach training at an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program. For a full list of accredited programs please go to the ICF website at www.coachfederation.org. While LifeCoach.com has many great resources, we do not offer coach training.
3) Practice your coaching skills.
Once you are enrolled in training, then you will immediately begin to practice your new skills on “guinea pig” clients. Grab any acquaintance that is willing and start practicing. After you have coached 100 people you will feel a level of mastery and confidence and have a track record of successful results behind you.
4) List yourself with various coaching directories so clients can find you.
Once you are enrolled in an ICF accredited coach training program, then you may be able to list yourself as a “coach in training” for various coaching directories. This will help you get exposure to new clients and you can offer coaching for free or a deeply discounted rate in order to get practice, which is what you will need now more than anything. Do NOT quit your day job! It took me two years to complete my coach training at CoachU and develop my skills sufficiently to become a full-time coach. I kept my full-time job at Chase Bank in the meantime so that I could enjoy the process and not worry about how to pay the rent in New York City. If you have already quit, then get a part-time job to support yourself while you develop your coaching skills. It can take five or more years to develop a full coaching practice.
5) Enjoy the process!
It takes years to become a Master Certified Coach (the highest ICF credential). Don’t rush it, but keep on developing your skills until you get there.
