Life coaches are becoming a lot more popular, people are realising that getting that extra push to help achieve individual goals is something which can be easily provided with the use of a qualified life coach. So what can a life coach help you with?

Phobias

Whether it be vertigo, arachnophobia or aerophobia – everyone has some kind of fear in life. Personally I have a fear of lifts and elevators, I am not certain where it stemmed from but I am sure it has something to do with getting stuck in a lift when I was a child. Ever since that moment I have never felt comfortable stepping in another lift, even going as far as walking up nine flights of stairs just to avoid using a lift.  Sometimes seeking help in confronting these fears can have a significant effect on how you view whatever phobia you might have.

Confidence

Even people who seem confident on the surface can suffer from insecurity at times. It is something which can affect us all at different point in our lives, but how much it affects us can differ. Some people seem to be born with an abundance of self-confidence whilst others need to learn how to build confidence up throughout their lives. Having confidence in yourself can branch out to so many different areas of your life and help you grow as a person.

Persuasiveness

Do you have a big business meeting coming up? Persuasiveness plays a huge part in life, it is one of the elements in life which is vital to everything we do in whatever capacity you do it in. Let’s take business as an example, you have a big business meeting scheduled with a potential client. How can you sell yourself and your business without persuasion, first you need to exude confidence in your business and then you need to tell this client exactly why they should choose your business. This goes the other way to, you could be the client trying to sell yourself to a business.

Motivation

How many times have you made it a target to lose that extra winter weight, feeling absolutely determined that the next morning you will get up nice and early and go for a run – then when the morning comes you take a look out at the cloudy, cold harsh weather and your warm bed just seem to be so much more appealing. We can all lack the motivation to do things in life, whether it be exercise or getting that piece of work done. Having the right motivation can help you make the changes you need in your life to bring you to the next level.

Life Coaching can help with you in all these areas and more. A life coach can help you overcome all these barriers. Tony has worked with everyone from the normal everyday person to the largest businesses in the UK or some of the world’s best athletes. These kind of issues can affect people from all walks of life but with the right coaching you can leave these problems in the past and move on to a better, brighter future.

Bill Gates once said “It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure”. The fear of failure is a feeling that everyone is inflicted with, it is part of who we are but it should stand in the way of potential success. Bill Gates is one of the richest people in the world, the founder of juggernaut that is Microsoft. Most of us use a Microsoft-made product every day, but we never really take in the inspiration we can all take from something like Microsoft who started as a pure idea.

In Business it is often the fear of failure which stops us from succeeding, the idea of failure makes most of us think of an end rather than a learning opportunity. This is especially important when running your own business, not only is there a need to motivate yourself but just as, if not more essential is the motivation of your employees.

There are many different techniques to effectively motivating people in business, a business coach uses NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques to make the most of motivational methods in areas such as performance, communication and team building – three key areas in business.

So why are the likes of communication, team building and performance so important in a motivational sense? Firstly to be an effective business you must be self-motivated – what are your business goals? How are going to achieve them? Only once you are motivated in yourself can you motivate those around you.

The team is the most important part of a successful organisation, a hard working and happy team will work harder to meet your business goals. But a poorly motivated team can be a cancer to your business and ultimately reflect on the whole business. Making sure that the whole office is happy performing their duties and any problems or grievances are listened to at all times.

Effective communication is an essential component in making sure you have a happy and hard-working office. Your employees appreciate been talked to like they are an important part of the business, learning how to encourage your employees will go a long way to motivating them to achieve their goals.

This leads to performance, make sure that you recognise and reward good performance. If your office has achieved the set of goals you aimed for over a certain period then ensure that you acknowledge that performance, if everyone knows that they are contributing to the overall completion of business aims it can go a long way to motivating the office. Everyone is motivated by different things so understanding that will go a long way to motivating each individual as well as the team.

Do not underestimate the importance of motivation in business, loom around in every walk of life and you will see that the most motivated people are the ones who go on to have success.
