Summary

An updated version of the best-selling therapist-to-coach transition text.

With his best-selling Therapist as Life Coach, Patrick Williams introduced the therapeutic community to the career of life coach, and in Becoming a Professional Life Coach he and Diane Menendez covered all the basic principles and strategies for effective coaching. Now Williams, founder of the Institute for Life Coach Training (ILCT), and Menendez, former faculty at ILCT - both master certified coaches - bring back the book that has taught thousands of coaches, with all-new information on coaching competencies, ethics, somatic coaching, wellness coaching, and how positive psychology and neuroscience are informing the profession today.

Moving seamlessly from coaching fundamentals - listening skills, effective language, session preparation - to more advanced ideas such as helping clients to identify life purpose, recognize and combat obstacles, align values and actions, maintain a positive mind-set, and live with integrity, this new edition is one-stop-shopping for beginner and advanced coaches alike. Beginning with a brief history of the foundations of coaching and its future trajectory, Becoming a Professional Life Coach takes listeners step-by-step through the coaching process, covering all the crucial ideas and techniques for being a successful life coach.

Length of time stated inaccurate

The length of time shown stated on the sales page is inaccurate. It's stated 16 hours but is in fact only 8 hours when played.

Good coverage of many topics w/ ref to read furthe

Great book covering many topics for life coaching. Love the additional references for further in depth reading on specific topics (of other authors, not up-sells). Some of the references I recognized and agreed it was an excellent reference so I look forward to the other ones they mentioned.
Listened to sections multiple times already.

Great book I read for my Masters Class

The book was very simple to understand and digest. I would listen on my way home and to work for school and the voice was easy to listen and not tune out. Really would recommend this audio book if you need to read the book for school.
