What is Life Transformation Coaching ?
Transformational coaching seeks to bring about increased awareness of a person’s model of the world in order to create new possibilities for how one sees oneself, other people and the world. Over the last few years, there has been increasing recognition that different kinds of coaching have fundamentally different intentions that drive the nature of the conversation.
Whilst there are many approaches to coaching and many styles, it has generally become established that there are essentially three kinds of coaching.
- Life Coaching
- NLP Coaching
- Life Transformation Coaching
Each is distinctive in its underlying intention.
Life Coaching’s main intention is to help the client towards agreed outcomes and to achieve their goals more efficiently and effectively and raise above their current challenges and situations.
NLP Coaching (Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner) broadens the coaching to explore what learning the client takes from the coaching and the change that takes place. The fundamental intention is to create learning from action. The two major areas for NLP training is the advanced strategies for communication and influence and effective models for creating behavioral change.
Life Transformation Coaching could be said to work “deeper”. The focus is on helping the client explore the underlying assumptions, beliefs, values, expectations, personal attitudes that shape their experience of themselves, their world and other people. Of course, this is not an unfocused exploration. It starts with the client’s presenting challenge, issue or aspiration but rather than focusing purely on resolving or achieving this, it seeks to explore what is at the heart of this whilst also enabling, where relevant, the achievement of the objectives.
