||Frequently Asked Questions
How is Life Coaching different from Executive and Business Coaching?
The process is extremely similar however the emphasis is different. Executive and business coaching is designed to address the demands on high achieving individuals within their corporate or business life. Specifically around leadership, strategy, professional development and reducing stress whilst achieving more.
You will probably find that even if you are wanting a highly focused program that an overlap inevitably exists within the different areas of your life. We are suitably qualified and experienced to provide you with an optimum coaching program based on your personal needs and preferences.
What sort of clients do you coach?
Most of our clients are professionals in the corporate and business sectors and are a mix of employees at various levels and business owners. Our clients are usually seeking life coaching within the frame-work of both their professional and personal objectives. This may be based on a desire to improve skills, income, work-life balance, communication or relationships. Most of our clients are investing in themselves with their coaching program and occasionally corporate employers may pay for, or contribute towards coaching fees.
We also coach a range of people outside of this general scope who may be in the areas of creative arts, philanthropy, full time home carers and soon to be or current retirees. For more information on how life coaching might help you click here.
How do I really know I will get results?
We have carefully acquired a solid track record with the hundreds of people who have experienced our life coaching programs and workshops. It’s a tried and tested process that is also tailored to your personal style. Please also refer to our unedited client testimonials to see what others have achieved, however you should note that your success will depend on the energy, time and effort you are willing to put into your coaching program. Your life coach will use their skills, training and experience to support you and hold you accountable to extend yourself for optimum achievement. Please also see What Life Coaching is Not.
What is the difference between life coaching, counselling and mentoring?
Simply put, Life Coaching is a forward moving, solution focused process aimed at achieving results using the coaches skills, training and experience to bring out your personal best. Counselling generally looks at the present and focuses on the past, applying therapy to overcome and delve deeper into issues. In a Mentoring program your mentor usually has specific experience in a particular field and can offer guidance based on this personal experience, but is usually not trained beyond this.
What is appropriate to talk about in Coaching?
You can discuss just about anything in your life coaching program providing it is legal and is working towards a positive outcome in your life.
What locations do you work in?
We coach in multiple locations throughout Sydney and also regularly coach clients via telephone and Skype if preferred. Please speak to your coach about the options available to you.
What qualifications do you hold?
We feel this is a really important question. “Life Coaching” is a general term that can be used by individuals or organisations with no experience, formal training or qualifications and life coaching is still a largely unregulated industry. At Authentic Empowerment all our coaches have a minimum of five years and 1000 hours of direct professional coaching experience and are certified with Results Coaching Systems (one of the worlds largest life coaching training organisations) as well as holding various additional individual training qualifications.
