Who are the Most Famous Life Coaches in the World?

By Tim Brownson Subscribe to RSS | February 16th 2012 | Views:

Being a Life Coach is a bit weird at times. Even though there are tens of thousands of Life Coaches all over the United States, not many people actually know what we do. That is largely to do with the fact that Life Coaching isn’t regulated in the US and as such anybody can call themselves a Life Coach without fear of reprisal or having to actually learn any coaching skills.

Having said that I regularly get asked who I think is the best Life Coach in the world. Of course that’s a ridiculous question because it’s entirely subjective and I would have had to work with every Life Coach to even offer an opinion.

I think what people mean when they ask this question is “Who is the most well known Life Coach in the world?” and it’s usually asked from a position of wanting to know what Life Coaches actually do.

If you have an interest in hiring a Life Coach, but you’re not sure what one does and you call me to ask. I may well ask you if you know Tony Robbins? Most people do as Robbins has been on the Coaching and NLP scene since the mid 80’s and has worked with some very high profile people, not least of whom was Bill Clinton. Even though Robbins does a lot of intervention work using hypnotherapy and NLP, skills that are often, although by no means always, the preserve of therapists. He also is a high profile Life Coach and regularly appears on TV when not touring the globe.

There is a huge drop off from Tony Robbins when talking about visible well known Life Coaches. There are a lot of coaches like Michael Neill who command very high fees ($50k and upwards are not that unusual) but are not very well known outside the coaching and self development industry.

There are also key note speakers and best-selling authors like Steven Covey and Wayne Dyer who are well known and used to do one-on-one work, but rarely if ever do now. And that is the issue, Life Coaching isn’t usually very well paid and as such those that become very successful branch out in other areas such as speaking, writing and seminars.

Steven Covey can reputably command $250,000 for a key note speech. He would have to see a lot of clients or be hired by a handful of super wealthy clients to procure that kind of income. and the speech may only last a couple of hours whereas client work takes a lot longer, sometimes spanning many months.

So the answer to the question is I really don’t know. I guess it could be Robbins and he has definitely earned that spot with his relentless hard work, but whether he is a Life Coach per se is another matter altogether.
