Life coaching is about helping people reach their fullest potential. This means helping people reach their goals by creating more balance in their lives, and helping them build more self confidence and self-esteem in order to feel more fulfilled in their lives. Coaching helps people get from where they are to where they want to be. Coaching is different from counseling in that counseling is designed to help people with more serious issues. Counselors are usually trying to help people overcome their past issues in order to move forward.
Coaching kids is different from coaching adults because of brain development occurring in kids. Adults have a developed brain and have more life experience to draw upon and because of this, coaching kids requires a stronger teaching component. Kids also have a shorter attention span than adults which is why coaching kids must involve an engaging curriculum like Adventures in Wisdom. Coaching kids helps build resilience, self-esteem, and self-confidence. It also helps kids develop their own "inner compass" in order to think for themselves and stand up to peer pressure. Through the coaching experience kids will learn to live life with intention, purpose and a vision for what they want in their lives.
