should I have 2 coaches

19 posts in this topic

hello

do you think it is a good idea to have 2 coaches, and see each one every two weeks? or is it better to have only one?  i am thinking about getting 2 for having more than one  perspective.

I'd say that seeing one high quality coach more frequently is better.  They can get to know your life and situation better if you see them more often.  You can always get different perspectives from books, meditation, self-inquiry, videos and other personal development stuff.

It depends on what kind of coaching you are talking about.

The best coaches will help you to see your own perspective and help you change your perspective on your own terms if you want and are ready to. Life coaches are not really supposed to teach you anything (I am a coach). They are supposed to act as a sound board, ask you deep questions tailored to your specific situation so you think in ways you never had before and they are supposed to challenge your limiting beliefs so you can empower yourself. 
It is not like having two doctors and having two different diagnosis.

Leo is acting more as a mentor than a coach. If somebody is teaching you anything they are mentoring you, not coaching.

I agree with FlyingLotus, best to work with a high quality one rather than two lower quality ones however do your research properly because in this industry price not always necessarily means quality. Look out for testimonials and qualifications. You will probably get a 30 to 45 minutes complimentary session to ask questions, get to know your coach and see if you both are a good fit. You will benefit from using and trusting your intuition here and clarify all of your doubts and curiosities.

Having said that I am working with 3 coaches at the moment - 1 for business / 1 for my art making / 1 for communication skills and English language (this is a mix of coaching and mentoring as I am advanced level but I want to get to native level). I had another coach for health and fitness but I simply don't have any more time and energy at the moment, plus this an area that I need less support with.

So in a nutshell, think about the area of your life you want to work on and find a coach that specialises in that particular area (not because they will teach you but most importantly because they have probably been where you are or have a passion for the topic which gives them great empathy and insight about the challenges you are going through) or find a general Life Coach that is happy to coach in any topic. Or work with more than one like I do but I suggest that you compartmentalise.

Or find a mentor.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.

@eliasvelez You may want to check out Healthy Gamer's coaching program.  Their channel and Dr.K is awesome.   He's a Stage Yellow-Turquoise addiction therapist from Harvard.  He has a coaching program that's very affordable.  40$ USD for 50 mins.  They also have group coaching for $24 per 90 mins.

You can get a sense of what his approach is like ahead of time by watching his channel.  Healthy Gamer gg.  It's tough finding a good coach or therapist.  A lot of them will charge 3 figures an hour and don't even know what they're doing.  If I'm paying someone that much money they better know what they're doing or be giving me a back massage !

With a short glance at this thread I first thought that the question was "Should I have 2 couches?".

I mean... Yeah man go for it, sometimes you need to switch it up, change your position, sit down and relax into another point of view.

So the answear to your question works for either one, whether it is about couches or coaches doesn't really matter in the end as you see..;)

Only the most holy and conscious of Zen masters can meditate on this couch without being distracted by roaches and termites.

Exactly so. It may even take a stone buddha to pull it off.

Or..

One could just get another couch:-)

Perhaps the call of the psychedelic monster couch exists to be embraced!  Tis merely the final boss, the threshold guardian, that the Zen master must defeat before entry into the Godhead!!!  Get your tetanus shot ready!

Should have as many coaches as you can possibly afford. If you have 2 coaches, then you can take the best attributes from both or compare them and see who is a better fit.

Three coaches, and then ask yourself, who is coaching who. You need at least three coaches, to coach your coaches.

I’d say go for 3.82 couches, or 2 couches, a gaming chair and an ottoman.  Just don’t get wicker, unless you want your life to get worse xD.

Now when I see this thread all I can think of is shopping for a life couch ?️.

@eliasvelez Did you decide on a coach yet, or a couch?
