The Ten Greatest Reasons to Hire a Professional Coach

The Ten Greatest Reasons to Hire a Professional Coach

sign post -guidance

What is the benefit of hiring a Professional Coach in any field: Life Coach, Business Coach, Fitness Coach, Recovery Coach, Family Recovery Coach, or any other specialized coach?

I get asked this question quite often from both sides of the equation: as an instructor of Professional Master Coaches, and as a successful business woman who utilizes a Professional Coach.  I’ll share with you my top ten reasons why I believe anyone should hire a Professional Coach.

Hello I am Your Coach
Before I share my thoughts with you on the top ten reasons to hire a Professional Coach, I want to define what a Professional Coach is and what they do.

A Professional Coach is:

A highly trained and very skilled individual
A professional with tools to get the job done
A very motivated individual who motivates others
An ethical and responsible person
A caring people person
A very advanced cheerleader
An action-oriented problem solver
A flexible, goal-driven communication specialist
A perception and perspective changer
A blockage buster and solution finder
It’s also important to look at what Professional Coaches are not to truly understand who they really are.

A Professional Coach is not:

A banker or accountant
A therapist or counselor
A sponsor or twelve-step guide
A psychiatrist
A goal or objective setter
A date or romantic interest
A party pal
A person with a conflict of interest in relation to a client
An uneducated or untrained individual
Interested in selfish, unethical, or illegal matters
Now that I have identified what a Professional Coach is and is not, I would like to describe what a coach does.  Coaching is a results and client driven process where the coach assists the client to reach a solution.  It is a development or training process where a client receives support while working towards goals and objectives via specific action plans, where the coach utilizes core competencies, skill sets, and tools to help the client see past blockages and reach solution or meet goals.  There are many different types of coaching:

Coaching Types and Styles:

1. Business Coaching
2. Recovery Coaching
3. Christian Coaching
4. Executive Coaching
5. Life Coaching
6. Financial Coaching
7. Health and Wellness Coaching
8. Fitness coaching
9. Relationship Coaching
10. Personal coaching
11. Family recovery coaching

There are many different types and styles of coaching; the largest difference today is peer coaching and Professional Coaching.  The difference is just like it sounds, peer coaching is peer to peer often volunteer, and Professional Coaching is a highly trained and skilled individual and almost always paid for their services. Professional Coaches use a range of communication skills such as active listening, powerful questioning, paraphrasing, the natural laws of cause and effect, reading body language, tones, and inflections, observation, intuition, action planning, and other activities. Professional Coaching helps an individual to identify their capabilities and skill sets that already exist internally and put them into motion to reach solutions in all coaching fields.

Now I’ve identified what a Professional Coach is and isn’t and what they do. You have to be prepared before you execute; now you’re ready to get the information you’ve been waiting for. What are the ten greatest benefits of hiring these highly trained and skilled individuals?

  • Every problem has a solution because the problem defines the solution; there is perspective and perception problems that block most clients from getting to solutions on their own, Profession Coaches help clients get past these blocks and reach solutions.
  • We all are human, thus we all suffer from the human condition. We all have blind spots; Professional Coaches can help clients can point out areas of weakness that clients miss or don’t see.
  • We all need someone to hold us accountable. Clients can take on greater responsibility by meeting with their coach on action plans with specific time tables and follow-up.
  • A Professional Coach will help redirect the client when they are off track with their action plan. The coach is trained to be flexible; however, to keep the plan moving forward toward solution.
  • A Professional Coach is trained to bring out the very best in the client through communication skills and other coaching techniques. The client won’t just be spinning in circles, but actually, always moving forward toward solution.
  • The coach brings extra talent to the table. When the client sets the goal, then the coach and client brainstorm together to reach solution; there is twice the creativity.
  • We all need spiritual sounding boards in our lives. Even coaches need coaches! I haven’t met a highly successful person yet who doesn’t have a coach!
  • Professional Coaches celebrate all the victories with the client, no matter how big or small. A win is a win!
  • Clients can communicate with their coach in confidence and confidentiality. The coach will always be supportive and non-judgmental. The coach may suggest change; however, it will be in a positive and nurturing way.
  • Professional Coaches get results! They bring out the best in clients and expect the champion from within to show him or herself.

 

 

This really is a no brainer!  If you could achieve your goal, increase your bottom line, lose those pounds, win that championship, or at least increase your chances for success, wouldn’t you do what it takes?  Professional Coaches make all the difference!

7 Secrets of a Sober Companion

A sober companion is not a sponsor, a lawyer, accountant, advisor, bookie, or lover!  A sober companion is an individual, working full- time with clients in a recovery coaching role.  At times nights, weekends, extended periods, or twenty-four hours a day, travel, live in, from several weeks to months, or longer.  The relationship begins with treatment discharge, or where there is need. The client returning home from treatment, leaves a drug-free environment for a situation where they know there could be problems. A Long Term Recovery Coach or Sober Companion will provide the symbolic safety of treatment.  A Long Term Sober Companion will introduce the client to the modalities of recovery; help them deal with triggers, and help them with an action plan. A Long Term Recovery Coach or Sober Companion will help the client to make life changes and work toward solutions needed.

Secret #1: Sober companions are highly trained professionals.
Sober companions go through rigorous training learning tools, techniques, skill sets, and competencies that aid them in their work.  Granted not all companions are the same, it depends on where they were trained and their level of training.

Secret #2: Sober companions are held to very high ethical standards.
Ethics are a very important part of any sober companion’s training.  They must learn all of the requirements and set boundaries, follow rules and regulations, and expectations.  There are ten categories of ethical standards that all companions are held to:
Fraud related conduct
Safety and welfare
Professional standards
Confidentiality
Unlawful conduct
Sexual Misconduct
Exploitation of clients
Record Keeping
Cooperation with investigations
Assisting unqualified practice

Secret #3: The practice of sober companions is goal and client driven.
Although the companion can assist with the action plan, the client must set the goal.  The companion never ever sets the goal in the action plan for the client.  Once the client sets the goal the companion will help with the action and specifics with follow up and time tables of when each task must be completed for success.  Action plans lead to success.
Secret #4: If you don’t like working with a certain sober companion, you can choose a different one.
Not all people click!  Sometimes two people just don’t mesh.  If you find that your companion is a dud, or they bore you to death, simply find a different one.  A word to the warning though, if this keeps happening it may be you.  You should be happy with your companion; you will be spending a good deal of time with them.
Secret #5: Sober companions will go to special events with you and help you make it through the event sober.
Sometimes weddings, funerals, and major life events can be gigantic triggers for those in early recovery.  Sober companions will go with you to events and help guide you through all of your triggers and provide you with coping mechanisms to get through sober and safe.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a lead singer playing a gig, or the best man in your cousin’s wedding, a sober companion will dress the part, and be right there with you.
Secret #6: All sober companions are not the same.
Sober companions come from all walks of life, all different backgrounds.  Some companions are in recovery, some are not, some are religious, some are not, some are spiritual, some are funny, some are more highly educated than others, and they have many different perspectives and worldviews.  The most important factor is that you find a sober companion who is highly trained.
Secret #7: You can become a sober Companion, yes you!
Imagine that! You could train to become an excellent sober companion and help change people’s lives for the better.  The Addictions Academy of Miami, Florida trains Companions, recovery coaches, interventionists, and all kinds of recovery professionals.  You can visit their website at www.theaddictionsacademy.com or call 800-706-0318 for more information on how to become a sober companion or recovery coach.
There is no secret that these wonderful professionals are helping to change and save lives each and every day.  Aftercare is paramount to long-term recovery and coaching and companions are very important in the big picture.  The need is overwhelming, there are not enough people to help all those in need at present.  Many more coaches and companions will be needed going forward in the war on addiction.  The bottom line is that sober companions make a difference.

YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS OUT ON THIS ONE OF A KIND EXPERT TRAINING!LEARN THE FACTS THAT WILL HELP MAKE YOU AN EXPERT IN THE ADDICTION FIELD! 

gambling addiction picProblem gambling, or ludomania, is an urge to continuously gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling often is defined by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler’s behavior. Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria. Pathological gambling is a common disorder that is associated with both social and family costs. “Pathological gambling” is the most severe form of problem gambling and has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as a disease since 1980. Gaming or gambling is supposed to be for fun, for entertainment.

Teenagers are 3 to 4 times more likely to become problem gamblers than adults. 90% of High School students have gambled at least once in the last year. In the USA ages 14-21, 2.1% struggle with Problem Gambling, another 6.5% are at risk. Every year, 2% -3%, 2M U.S. adults are estimated to meet the criteria for disordered gambling, while another 4-6M individuals are problem gamblers at risk for serious addiction consequences. Men make up 2/3 majority of Problem Gamblers.

In the United States, a report by the National Council on Problem Gambling showed approximately one in five pathological gamblers attempts suicide. The Council also said suicide rates among pathological gamblers are higher than any other addictive disorder. The Suicide rate is higher for people who gamble, and for their families. Those with mental health issues are at an even greater risk. Those addicted to illicit drugs and alcohol are also at greater risk.

Even the tough economy that we’re all living with doesn’t stop gambling. The hope of the big win keeps the rich and the poor gambling. The recent closings of The Revel Casino and The Showboat casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey show that the casino industry isn’t doing that well. People have less money for entertainment. The pathological gamblers won’t slow down because of the economy. In fact, it may even make the situation more extreme.

 This is a great course that you cannot afford to miss, if you are a recovery coach you will be more rounded and knowledgeable as an expert. A Must for Those training to be Master Addiction Coaches. You Can Bet On It!     –RevKev

As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will address both problem gambling and compulsive gambling with your clients. Similar to a drug or alcohol addiction, the gambling or gaming becomes a need and a compulsion to not only entertain but remove specific feelings of stress, anger, discord, etc. As a Gambling Addiction Coach we address these feelings, needs and compulsions with our clients and provide new coping skills and ways of structuring their lives that are productive and meaningful.

“Problem gambling” is any gambling behavior that disrupts your client’s life. If you find your client obsessing over the next bet, the next scratch off or the next win, they need some assistance.  Maybe they have gotten the drugs and alcohol addiction under control and now they are playing dice or poker incessantly. Maybe the primary addiction is gambling. As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will be taught about the natural release of endorphins that gambling produces, similar to sex, exercise and happy surprises. Gambling is a process addiction and hard to control. At The Addictions Academy we will teach you tips and tricks on getting a client’s gambling addiction under control. National Certification in Gambling Addiction.

If your client is preoccupied with gambling, spending more and more time and money on the ‘win’, chasing losses, or gambling despite serious consequences, they have a gambling problem. Gambling addiction, also known as compulsive gambling, is a type of impulse-control disorder. Compulsive gamblers are not able to control the impulse to gamble, and it becomes a source of stress reduction and release, similar to drug addiction or alcohol addiction.

In our Gambling Addiction Course and Gambling Addiction Certification  we will discuss different types of gambling or gaming: from casinos, to online, lotto, dice and street gambling, horseraces and dog track, sports betting and more will be covered. It is important to understand what styles and types of gambling and gaming there are and we cover the terminology of all styles and types of gambling and how to curtail the behaviors and how to handle the compulsions despite the consequences of the problem behaviors.
