The Presuppositions of Effective Life Coaching
Presuppositions, in general, are beliefs underlying a system. The presuppositions of Life Coaching are beliefs that guide and have guided the development of Life Coaching since it started becoming popular back in the 1970's. Beliefs are usually self-fulfilling. If we believe someone doesn’t like us, our defensive manner can make this a reality. If we believe we can master a skill, we persevere until we do. The following are three of the main presuppositions of the life coaching which will be taught throughout this course;People work perfectly: No-one is broken. People function perfectly even if what they are doing is ruining their life. All behaviour has a structure. When you understand the structure, you can change the outcome into something more desirable.People make the best choice available at any given time: The idea is to add options and resources. When you take away options, other compensating behaviours can occur.
People have all the resources they need: This assumption opens up possibilities. Resources mean the innate responses and external reactions required to get the desired response. Often people have resources that they haven’t considered or are available in other contexts.Kain will explain these in more detail in this lecture.

The 'Gerard Egan' Listening Framework
Gerard Egan’s Skilled Helper Model of eclectically based counselling provides a structured and solution focused basis for life coaches, counsellors, psychotherapists and other helping therapists.There are many things that get in the way of active listening (and learning). It's important to be aware of these barriers, many of which are just bad habits, in order to become a more effective listener. Barriers and bad habits to effective listening can include:
  1. Trying to listen to more than one conversation at a time. This includes having the television or radio on while attempting to listen to somebody talk; being on the phone to one person and talking to another person in the same room and also being distracted by some dominant noise in the immediate environment.
  2. You find the communicator attractive/unattractive. You pay more attention to how you feel about the communicator and their physical appearance than to what they are saying. Perhaps you simply don't like the speaker (or what the speaker is saying) so you end up mentally arguing with the speaker and become fast to criticise and reject what they're saying.
  3. You are not interested in the topic/issue being discussed and therefore become bored too soon.
  4. Not focusing and being easily distracted by other external factors, fiddling with your hair, the weather, fingers, traffic, gazing out of the window or focusing on objects other than the speaker.
  5. You are prejudiced or biased by race, gender, age, religion, accent, and/or past experiences.
  6. You have preconceived ideas or bias. Effective listening includes being open-minded to the ideas and opinions of others, this does not mean you have to agree but should listen and attempt to understand.
  7. You make judgements, thinking, for example that  a person is not very bright or is under-qualified so there is no point listening to what they have to say.
  8. Previous experiences. We are all influenced by previous experiences in life.  We respond to people based on personal appearances, how initial introductions or welcomes were received and/or previous interpersonal encounters.  If we stereotype a person we become less objective and therefore less likely to listen effectively.
  9. Preoccupation. When we have a lot on our minds we can fail to listen to what is being said as we're too busy concentrating on what we're thinking about. This is particularly true when we feel stressed or worried about issues.
  10. Having a Closed Mind. We all have ideals and values that we believe to be correct and it can be difficult to listen to the views of others that contradict our own opinions. The key to effective listening (and interpersonal skills) is adapting the ability to maintain an open mind, in view of understand why others think about things differently to you and use this information to gain a better understanding of the speaker.

We can easily pick up bad habits when it comes to listening. Listening is a key interpersonal skill and a prerequisite to many other communication skills, therefore, by learning to listen more effectively you can improve the quality of both your professional and personal life - especially if you go on to practice life coaching with others into the future.

A Definition of Life Coaching
Life Coaching is a respected profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice giving, therapy, or even counselling.The life coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on with them right now.By discovering what your clients perceived obstacles or challenges might be, as a life coach, you will become able to discern the action steps that a client may take towards accomplishing any goal or desired outcome as determined by them. Life Coaching Certification Programme (Beginner to Advanced)
People's Primary Learning Styles
Many people recognise that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.

Choosing the 'Right' Coaching Clients: The 'Chris' Story

Before we even consider coaching another person ... it's important that we develop a standard for those who we are (and aren't) willing to work with. In this video, Kain will share a few ideas about how to determine what this is. Life Coaching Certification Programme (Beginner to Advanced)
A Standard for Effective Life Coaching
There is a standard by which we can integrate into our practice, our day-to-day interactions, and in fact, every area in our lives. It's this immediately actionable standard that Kain will disclose in this thought provoking video.Life Coaching Certification Programme (Beginner to Advanced)
Perception Isn't Everything!
Perception occurs when people organise and make sense of information gathered through their senses. Different individuals can perceive the same information differently based on a variety of personal factors.A person's educational background, past experiences, current feelings, socioeconomic status and cultural background are all factors that can influence the way a person perceives incoming information. Gender, age, race and occupation are other factors that play a role.For example, it is common for teenagers and adults to perceive situations in very different ways. A teenager may think learning algebra is boring and pointless, while an adult with more experience may understand that strong math skills are very important in a variety of fields.An example of perception is the way children view objects differently as they develop. Early on, they only perceive individual shapes and objects, while they are later capable of recognizing relationships between objects. Another example is the phenomenon of miscommunication in which a person wrongly perceives someone's words or intentions. Life Coaching Certification Programme (Beginner to Advanced)
