Saarathi Life Coaching

In a busy and highly distracted world, it can be hard to know if one is really progressing towards ones goals in the major areas of ones life. Only when we get down to the details do we realize the gaps in the various areas of our life. Saarathi Life Coaching uses “The Wheel of Life” tool to help people understand which areas they are already good at and which areas to work on.

The wheel of life will give you a quick, visual overview of how effective and satisfied you are with your life. The scoring for each segment on the wheel enables both you and your coach to see which life areas you feels good about – and which may need some work. Further you prioritize and work with your coach on those areas.

What is Life Coaching?

Coaching is a form of development in which an experienced person, called a coach, supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal by providing training and guidance. The learner is sometimes called a coachee. Occasionally, coaching may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring by focusing on specific tasks or objectives, as opposed to more general goals or overall development.

Who is Life Coaching for?

Coaching is for individuals who are ready to take responsibility for themselves and for their lives. It’s for people who dare to dream, and are committed to take action to make their dreams a reality. Coaching is for people ready to invest in themselves so as to significantly improve their careers and their lives.

What are the areas in which my Coach can help me?

Your will focus on improving areas of your wellbeing. They might help you create strategies for losing weight or getting in shape; ways to manage and come to terms with an illness; ways to reduce stress and increase your vitality or basically any area in the wheel of life (please refer below).

How can a Coach in any challenge I'm dealing with?

Your life coach may have one or more specialized niche areas, but they will also be skilled at general life coaching techniques. Life coaching helps you work on areas that bring more balance, happiness and success into your life. You might work to improve aspects of your life such as stress management, self esteem, time management, organizational skills, goal-setting, work/life balance and interpersonal skills.

What is the Process of Coaching?

Coaching is a two-way communication process that requires that the Coach and the Coachee both are fully engaged and motivated to set specific measurable goals, agree on next steps in terms of actions and timing, and gain a commitment. The steps involved in the process are given below

STEP 1: Establish Focus

The first step of any coaching conversation is to establish the focus for that conversation. This sets the stage for coaching conversations so there is a clear outcome identified, whether the conversations is two minutes or two hours.

Questions to ask: What would you like to get out of this conversation? What’s the real issue we are trying to discuss?

STEP 2: Discover Possibilities

Once you’ve established the focus of your conversation, it’s time to use good discovery questioning, or powerful open-ended questions, to elicit ideas. This is the brainstorming stage of the conversation, working toward determining all the options that are available to achieve an outcome to the conversation. Spending some time in this step allows a lot of solutions and ideas to surface—exactly what is needed to generate the best ideas to reach goal.

 Questions to ask: What are your ideas on how best to reach that goal? What else?

 

STEP 3: Remove Barriers

In this stage, the coach’s role is to encourage the employee to determine what he or she thinks is the best next step, determine how to secure any needed resources, and understand what might get in the way. Thinking about potential roadblocks and how to clear them helps employees adapt and continue forward even in the face of challenges.

 

Questions to ask: What might get in the way of you accomplishing this? How could you adapt or respond

STEP 4: Acknowledge Awareness

This step is about increased awareness, either on the part of the coach or the coachee. This is the “aha” stage, a stage where, through the questioning in the previous step, the coachee has discovered options that may have never been considered before. With this new awareness, the coachee is then better positioned to determine actions to take to achieve the identified goal.

 Questions to ask: How has your thinking changed as we’ve discovered new possibilities? What does this mean for you in terms of different actions you might take to achieve your goal?
