We all know for the most part what a coach is. The first example that likely comes to mind may be one of a coach in sports. I think of those awesome coaches that bought us some of the world’s greatest sports figures in the areas of basketball, baseball, football and track and field. Those coaches took those players from mediocre to success, in some cases extraordinary success. That is exactly what a life coach does.
The official definition of Life Coaching is the process of assessing thoughts and emotions, observing behavior and language, setting specific goals and discerning hidden saboteurs. Effective life coaching should also be supportive of the client in making a plan of action and then follow it to reach the desired outcomes, to move the client from their former place to one of success.
A Life Coach who specializes in transitioning military members would be likened to a Battle Buddy of sorts. I have been through similar experiences and can relate to many of the challenges you may face as you embark upon your transition to civilian life. I will be that Battle Buddy to help you work through your feelings associated with transitioning from the military, keeping you focused on your goals and plan of action allowing for a smooth transition. Your Battle Buddy, that person who is going to hold you accountable, reassure you that you can make it through transition because I have gone before you and I know it is achievable.
