Life coaching is more than a collection of techniques and skills. It is more than something you do. Life coaching reflects who you are-it is your authentic being in action. Readers of Pat Williams's and Deborah Davis's book, Therapist as Life Coach, know Pat to be a gifted life coach and passionate teacher. Here Pat and colleague and writer, Lloyd J. Thomas, build on this earlier book and share a unique insight into the coaching process, which shows you precisely how to enhance your professional practices through practical and effective life coaching. It also empowers you to change your own lives through use of the practical information and philosophy presented here. Total Life Coaching is organized into a series of 50 life lessons, and is designed to be either read cover-to-cover or dipped into, as needed, for assistance when conducting a coaching session. Keeping life's processes on the "message and lesson" level makes living and life coaching much easier and more enjoyable. Total Life Coaching guides you step-by-step through the complex process of learning and coaching these fifty important lessons. The lessons are organized into 8 sections: Creating a Personal Identity; Coaching Spirituality and Life Purpose; Coaching Communication Skills; Living Life with Integrity; Success: Clients Achieving their Potential; Coaching Cognitive Skills; Creating High-Quality Relationships; Understanding Your Past to Create a Desired Future. Each lesson is presented as a structured recipe and includes: * The life lesson * The messages contained within the lesson * Coaching objectives for your clients regarding the lesson * What you need to know about the lesson to provide the framework for coaching it * Coaching methods, exercises, questions, and language for bringing each lesson to your clients * Sample coaching conversations that exemplify the coach-client dialogue for the coaching of the lesson. Total Life Coaching by Pat and Lloyd is more than just a book. It is an interactive experience in which you will find recipes for living your life more authentically, as well as master time-honored lessons that you can bring to your coaching clients. Regardless of the personal coaching techniques or skills you may have learned, you may still not be the most effective coach you can become. This book will help you move closer to that goal.

It is an easy read that is packed with a number of useful tips and practical advice of how to both develop and implement your business." Yvonne Thackray How do I set up a coaching business? How do I find clients? How do I market myself successfully? If you are considering these questions, then this is the book for you. The coaching market is thriving but many coaches need practical help on how to develop and grow their businesses. Being a good coach is never enough. This book gives practical help based on many years of successful experience. Many coaches make the mistake of starting too broadly when the secret is to find a niche - but how do you do this? How do you find your natural clients? How do they find you? What should you charge? Should you have an office or can you work from home? Start-up costs are never as minimal as they might look, so how do you sustain yourself while you are building the business? It is essential to promote your fledgling business but which methods work and which are just a waste of time and money? You must have a web site but what should it contain to carry the right message about you and your coaching practice? Then there is the whole question of selling - a process many coaches dread but which has to be done because word of mouth on its own will never generate enough clients to earn a decent living. Finally, how big do you ultimately want your business to be? What are the plusses and minuses of growth? This book explains step by step how to build a successful new coaching business using an innovative method of selling with integrity. Using helpful case studies, Jenny Rogers clearly analyses the practical issues that can make or break a new venture. This book is the first step in running a successful coaching business.
