Life Coaching - Do You Get What You Pay For?
The recent explosion in the Life Coaching industry with literally hundreds of new Life Coaches setting up in business every month has proved to be very unsettling for people looking to hire a Life Coach. As the industry is not regulated the market place is at best confusing and at worst almost impossible to navigate for the average person who does not know what to look for.
If you are buying a new car one of the most important considerations is your budget. If you only have $25,000 to spend and want to buy new, there is little point yearning after a Ferraro or a Porsche. Similarly, if you have a budget of $100,000 or more I doubt you will be taking the Nissan Versa for a test drive.
The thing is though, shopping for cars is fairly easy because by and large you get what you pay for. No disrespect to the Nissan Versa, but a brief inspection would confirm that it is not made as well as the Porsche 911 no matter how you view it.
Taking this approach with hiring a Life Coach is not quite as cut and dried though because there are so many variables to take into consideration. You don’t need to build rapport with your new car, but you do with your Life Coach. You don’t need to check what training your car has had, but you do with your Life Coach. And you don’t need to see how experienced your car is, but you really should know that with your Life Coach.
Unfortunately though a handful of unscrupulous Life Coaches understand human behavior. They know that the expression “you get what you pay for” is ingrained in the minds of many people. Therefore, they also realize that by charging very high prices some people will jump to the erroneous conclusion that they must be really good at what they do and thus worth the investment they are being asked to make.
At this stage due diligence is often thrown out of the window because the client has already made the mental leap to thinking they are getting a world class Life Coach because they are paying world class money.
The reality of the Life Coaching industry is you don’t necessarily get what you pay for. There are very high priced Life Coaches that are quite frankly, not very good. And equally there are Life Coaches charging reasonable fees that are excellent., it’s just not that easy to spot which are which.
My advice for what it is worth is check which coach or coaches appeal to you most through a mixture of training, experience, testimonials and your gut feeling, and at that stage find out what they charge. If they then fit your budget, great, go hire them. If they don’t, start the process over again.
