Life Coaching

Life coaching is a future-focused practice with the aim of helping clients determine and achieve personal goals. Life coaches select from among several methods to help clients set and reach goals.
Life coaching has its roots in executive coaching, which itself drew on techniques developed in management consulting and leadership training. Life coaching also draws inspiration from disciplines including sociology,psychology, positive adult development,career counseling, mentoring and other types of counseling.

Contemporary life coaching can also be traced to teachings of Benjamin Karter,a college football coach turned motivational speaker of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The coach may apply mentoring, values assessment, behavior modification, behavior modeling, goal-setting and other techniques in helping their clients.

Life Satisfaction Wheel (click for larger):

On a scale of 1 to 10, how are you doing in the following areas?


More often than not, there is probably at least one area that you are having difficulty with. You can’t seem to improve that aspect of your life, no matter how hard you try.

Job Satisfaction Wheel (click for larger):


The ten sections of the Job Satisfaction Wheel represent important factors, which for many people determine job satisfaction. Print the wheel. Seeing the center of the wheel as 0 and the outer edges as 10, assign each section a value between 0 and 10, depending on YOUR satisfaction with the particular factor at YOUR current workplace. If you connect these values with a straight or curved line to create a new outer edge, do you still have a nice, round wheel?
