The Life Coach Manifesto v1.1

1) Believe in people.

See them better than they see themselves.

2) You are no better than the people you coach.

Walk with them shoulder by shoulder. You’re both on the same path.

3) Skill doesn’t change people. Love changes people.

All the skills in the world aren’t worth a dime if you don’t care.

4) You still need skill.

Effective coaching is not an accident.

5) You don’t change people. People change themselves.

You can show them the door, but they’re the ones who walk through it.

6) The most important person you coach is you.

Do your best to walk the talk and lead the way.

7) Your client is a magnificent being, and so are you.

    Hey that’s just so right Alvin. And adding on, it is equally if not more important to tell your partner how it feels like to you when he/she has done or said something right, that makes you feel loved. Describe the feeling to them. Trust me, you will get much more of such feelings by telling your partner and appreciating him/her for it. ;)
