How I choose my course

Choosing the right coach is a crucial decision that can have a significant impact on your personal and professional growth. Here are some tips to help you select the coach best suited to your needs:

1. Determine your goals

Before looking for a coach, think about your goals. Get clear on what areas of your life you want to work on, whether it is career, relationships, personal development, or other specific goals.

2. Search for a coach with expertise in the field

Coaches have different specializations. For example:

  • If you want to improve at work, look for a Business Coach.

  • If you want to work on your private life, contact a Life Coach.

  • If you are an athlete, consider a Mental Coach.

3. Check the coach's preparation

  • Look for coaches who have completed serious and proven successful training programs.

  • Consider their experience helping clients achieve their goals.

4. Consider your coaching style and approach

  • Every coach has a distinctive style. Some are more direct and action-oriented, while others focus on introspection and personal growth.

  • Choose a style that suits your preferences.

5. Ask for recommendations and reviews

  • Talk to friends, colleagues, or people who have collaborated with trained coaches.

  • Read online reviews and testimonials to evaluate the coach's reputation and effectiveness.

6. Make an appointment for a free introductory call

  • Many coaches offer a no-obligation initial chat. Use this opportunity to get to know the coach, discuss her approach, and understand if you are compatible.

7. Evaluate chemistry and compatibility

  • A good coach-client relationship is based on trust, rapport, and open communication.

  • Make sure you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and challenges with the coach.

8. Agree on planning and investment

  • Understand the frequency and length of sessions, the fee, and any additional support provided.

  • Evaluate whether the investment required is in line with the value you expect to receive.


Remember that the choice of coach is personal, so take the time to find the right one for you!
