Active Listening Reflecting Powerful Questioning Non- Judgmental
Goal Setting Process Identify SMART Goal Establish Action Plan Address obstacles Identify supports needed
Goal Setting “I was lucky enough to get a life coach, so it’s good because when I was diagnosed, it seemed like this huge thing and she helps me break it down so that there are little goals along the way, so that I’m not looking at it as an insurmountable mountain.”
Goal Setting “If you have a goal it has to be written you can’t have it in your mind the goal has to be very… you have to look at it…This is my goal… this is my day…this is what I have to do today.”
Satisfaction How satisfied are you with your life coaching experience overall? 12341234 3.80 N = 93 Completely Dissatisfied Completely Satisfied
Satisfaction 12341234 3.83 N = 93 How satisfied are you with your coach’s ability to elicit answers and actions rather than directly advising you? Completely Dissatisfied Completely Satisfied
Satisfaction with Life Coach “I love my life coach and her willingness to be available and provide insight and thought provoking ideas to consider outside of my comfort zone. She has helped me look at the "big picture" instead of just a portion. I believe she has helped me never to look at a slight falter as a disaster but an opportunity to recover, learn, and do better.”
What did you like about life coaching? Motivating Insightful Goal Setting Accountability
Life Coaching “Helped me through the hard process. Look at my alternatives, think, do critical thinking about, um, making conscious decisions, and looking at different alternatives to overcome the barriers and challenges.” “I have a lot more self awareness, understanding why I do things, which helps to make the change if you understand why you are doing things, then it’s easier to make the change”
Discussion / Questions Patients naturally select goals that are most important to them Managing health becomes a choice rather than a directive Results in higher self- efficacy
