Life coaches aim to support and encourage their clients in their personal and professional growth by helping them to identify and achieve their goals. They use a variety of conversational and written techniques to help them find the best way forward, strengthen their motivation and take action. Good coaches don't give advice, but help the client to find the answer for themselves. But they are expensive. If you follow the tried and tested methods offered in this book, you can transform your life with no financial outlay other than the cover price. The author bases his methods on three simple ideas: the TGROW Method, Eight Steps to Success, and the ITIA Formula.
