Life Coach: “A [life] coach is an individual who has the tools, techniques, focus, wisdom, intent, and knowledge to elicit a client’s values, goals and beliefs. The coach is then able to create a plan of action and a strategy for success toward a defined outcome or result and is able to guide the client.”¹
Did you know the difference?²
Consulting: Expert in a limited area such as a statistician who works with mergers. Often part-time.
Advice: Free help, most often from friend, family, or colleague.
Mentoring: Limited connotation where they are an expert.
Counseling: Generally a legally licensed therapist with degrees from a university.
Therapy: Therapeutically aids someone in some way. Many states require degrees and certifications with licensing behind it.
Critiquing: Similar to criticizing. This approach looks at, but does not offer a solution.
Guidance: Not necessarily proactive and does not offer solutions generally. A college counselor gives guidance.
