Life coaching came to popularity to help self funding individuals reduce stress, become more confident and to achieve their goals. More coaches are moving into the business sector being hired as consultants, trainers and personal coaches. Business leaders are seeing the benefits of personal coaching from an impartial source. “Employees are more likely to open up” says Chris Delaney a confidence and career coach “to an external coach who has no obligations to the company.”
Prior to businesses sourcing life coaching sessions for employees, HR departments and line managers would use appraisal sessions to motivate staff. “Employees would be reluctant to fully open up in theses session, rarely discussing the issue of stress as they would believe that this would impact on their ability to gain a promotion or would effect redundancy processes.” explains Delaney
There is a big demand for business and life coaches with many coaches working on a global basis through Skype and Google hangouts. A coaching business has little overheads and coaches can earn anything from $80 – $500 per session making a coaching business a potential goldmine.
