WHO CAN MOST BENEFIT FROM LIFE EFFECTIVENESS COACHING

BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATING IN LIFE EFFECTIVENESS COACHING

Already functioning at adequate baseline in daily life

Are dealing with real world circumstances and consequences that they cannot afford to simply avoid or ignore, such as:

Threat of significant relationship ending

Increasing Marital/family discord

Chronic medical conditions

Job/financial loss

Paralyzed in making a potentially life changing choice or decision

Repeated patterns of relationship or work difficulties

(add your own version)

WHO WOULD MOST BENEFIT

Already having enough self knowledge to be frustrated with difficulty turning insights into reliable changes in behavior

Have identified difficulties in living that have attempted to address and still unsuccessful

Understand that they are not “just stupid” and have a legitimate need for and can benefit from fresh input from outside of themselves

Accept that the only real influence they have is on themselves and their own attitude and behavior–not on others

Are ready to “play hardball” (compassionately) about discovering and intervening on ways they limit/sabbotage/defeat themselves despite a conscious commitment to their stated goal

Willing to challenge their existing beliefs about themselves and life

Able to tolerate the emotional discomfort that can go with this

Can hear and use outside critiquing without being overly defensive

Uncertain whether they need therapy and want help in making a decision
