Life Coaches

Tips for Entry

Get a part-time or summer job helping out at a life coach's office to gain exposure to this field and see if it's a good fit for you. Look for job postings on employment Web sites and also on life coaches' Web sites.

Conduct an informational interview with a life coach to learn more about their educational background, their work history, and what got them interested in this profession. Create a list of questions before the interview and be prepared to take notes.

Visit the Web sites of professional associations for life coaches to keep up with news and developments and to see if there are upcoming education programs or events that offer opportunities to meet people in the field.

Visit the Co-Active Training Institute's Web site to learn more about coach training and leadership training programs:
