Life Coaching, sometimes called personal life coaching or personal development coaching, embraces your whole life and aims to bring success, balance and fulfillment to all areas of it. We often begin by discovering and defining your goals, vision, values and priorities. And, with awareness, insight and conscious choice, go on to design meaningful and powerful actions, which together, form the steps to make achieving those goals a reality. My Life Coaching program will help you reach your personal and professional goals faster and with less stress.

All you need to know

Life Coaching is an emerging field that provides a short-term or ongoing partnership between a coach and client. It’s a unique way to find more balance and fulfillment in life.

As we walk through life, we all face many challenges. Problems, aspirations, opportunities, and changes abound. Sometimes it can be overwhelming. But there is a way to skillfully navigate through it. A life coach is an ally there to support, guide, and encourage... making the journey more effective, efficient and fulfilling. Coaching takes people where they otherwise might not go!

“COACHING CONCENTRATES ON where clients are today and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be tomorrow.” - (International Coach Federation, 2001)

Coaching is practical and convenient! There is no traffic, parking, or time concerns because it is accomplished through ‘tele-coaching' (over the phone or video) whereby soulful listening is maximize due to no visual distractions. Distance and other logistical factors that might otherwise impede contact are non-existent. Schedules are created that work for everyone. Clients contract for 3 - 4 coaching calls per month, with e-mail support and brief additional calls as needed.

In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice.” (International Coach Federation, 2001)

“Coaching focuses on what the client’s want. People come to coaching because they want things to be different. They are looking for change or they have an important goal to reach. People come to coaching for lots of individual reasons… In general they come to coaching because they want a better quality of life: more fulfillment, better balance, or a different process to accomplish their life desires. Whatever the individual reason, it all starts with the client.” ( International Coach Federation, 2001)

My job… is not to lead but to facilitate and draw out the answers that are already there - hidden within you - unlocking your potential, accelerating your progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. I am committed to you and your best interests. I will give you my undivided attention, contribute observations, ask powerful questions that may not always be easy to answer, and reflect back to you what I hear – striving in all of this to get to the heart of the issue quickly. I am trained to really hear not only what is in your head, but also your heart. While your issues may be quite serious in nature, there will be lightness and laughter at times. I will encourage you to stretch out of your comfort zones and explore new things by making requests of you which you can accept, reject or modify. I will not tell you what to do. I will support you in deciding your best course of action, and then, hold you accountable to do it. As your coach, I am a resource and a presence. I am here for you.

Your job… is to recognize that the results are a matter of your intentions, choices and actions and that you must be ready, willing, and able to make changes. It is your responsibility to be true, committed, and motivated into action. You will choose the focus of the conversations. The more clear you are, the quicker I can get a true picture of things. Your real growth will come from the work you do in the time between our calls when you are doing discovery work and/or reflecting over our session, spurring new thoughts and perspectives. It is imperative that you apply yourself fully if coaching is to be successful.

As you explore and taste the different styles and personalities of the many coaches that are available to you, ask yourself the following questions as you reflect on your conversation with them:
  • How did you connect with them?
  • Was their personality and style a fit with yours?
  • Did you feel comfortable?
  • Was it easy to converse with them?
  • How authentic were they?  Did their interest seem genuine?
  • Did they understand what you are wanting?
  • What did they say that makes you think this?
  • For what reasons might they be the right coach for you?
  • For what reasons might they not be the right coach for you?
  • Was it all about you and what you want ?

Life coaching can make the difference of living an okay life to living an extraordinary life! A personal coach can help you with:

  • Clearly identified goals and priorities
  • The ability to achieve goals faster than otherwise possible
  • Better overall life balance (including work-life)
  • Increased efficiency in and leadership of your life
  • Better time management
  • Clarified values and greater self insight
  • Renewed life purpose
  • Decreased stress
  • Improved career development
  • Improved self confidence
  • Increased personal growth and awareness
  • Improved relationships
  • New perspectives and behaviors
  • A source of support, empowerment, encouragement, motivation and accountability

Ideal personal coaching candidates share a common trait in that they want some sort of change in their lives. They must be willing, wanting and ready to put both work and energy into making those changes happen for themselves. For personal coaching to work at its best, it is essential that the coachee is motivated to invest their time and energy into integrating the outcomes of the coaching sessions into their life to maximize the benefits of the coaching.

The client may bring different topics to focus on each personal coaching session, picking what is the most relevant and urgent in their life at that time. Although topics may vary, your personal coach keeps the overall goals and vision in mind at all times, making sure actions and decisions are all fitting into the bigger picture and are aligned with the overall vision. Some common personal life coaching topics are:

  • Life Transformation
  • Better work-life balance
  • Goal setting and accomplishment
  • To improve relationships
  • To have passion for life
  • To overcome chaos and create a simpler, more organized life
  • To live a fulfilled life; to leave a legacy

Group Coaching can be done by tele-conference calls OR in person at local establishments.  The beauty of coaching in groups is that you not only get coaching from Jetro but also from your peers who may have already succeeded at what you are wanting.  Although you do not get as much individual coaching time, you learn and take value away from the coaching that goes on with others.  Another perk: the cost is considerably lower than individual coaching.

The dynamics and synergy of Group Coaching add interest and fun!  The relationships and benefits that result can be priceless.  At times, these groups may be a hybrid of teaching and coaching by Jetro, depending on the topic.  It is usually best to be in a group that has goals in similar areas.   Everyone takes part in every session.  Everyone sets goals, looks at possible obstacles, and determines what action they will take.  Accountability is the bottom line for success.  In individual coaching, clients are accountable to their Coach.  In Group Coaching you are accountable also to your Coach and your Coach Buddies.

Minimum 5 people but no more than 15 people required to conduct a group session - The group session can either be done by phone or in person if location is in the same city as the life coach. Group sessions can be on any of our Life Coaching topics above.

One key thing to remember when you are looking for the right life coach, you want to make sure their training, skills, and personality match what you are looking for. That is one reason why I offer a 15 minute FREE consultation. To help you see if we are the right coach for you. During the 15 minute free consultation:
  1. You will share with the coach who you are and what you are trying to accomplish.
  2. You will learn how coaching can help you.
  3. You will learn how you and I will work together.

Part One: The ICF Philosophy of Coaching

The International Coach Federation adheres to a form of coaching that honors the client as the expert in his/her life and work and believes that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:
  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

Part Two: The ICF Definition of Coaching

Professional Life Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.

In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client's progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches and ICF credentialed coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client's intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach's efforts and application of the coaching process

Part Three: The ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct

Professional Conduct At Large As a coach:
  1. I will conduct myself in a manner that reflects positively upon the coaching profession and I will refrain from engaging in conduct or making statements that may negatively impact the public's understanding or acceptance of coaching as a profession.
  2. I will not knowingly make any public statements that are untrue or misleading, or make false claims in any written documents relating to the coaching profession.
  3. I will respect different approaches to coaching. I will honor the efforts and contributions of others and not misrepresent them as my own.
  4. I will be aware of any issues that may potentially lead to the misuse of my influence by recognizing the nature of coaching and the way in which it may affect the lives of others.
  5.  I will at all times strive to recognize personal issues that may impair, conflict or interfere with my coaching performance or my professional relationships. Whenever the facts and circumstances necessitate, I will promptly seek professional assistance and determine the action to be taken, including whether it is appropriate to suspend or terminate my coaching relationship(s).
  6. As a trainer or supervisor of current and potential coaches, I will conduct myself in accordance with the ICF Code of Ethics in all training and supervisory situations.
  7. I will conduct and report research with competence, honesty and within recognized scientific standards. My research will be carried out with the necessary approval or consent from those involved, and with an approach that will reasonably protect participants from any potential harm. All research efforts will be performed in a manner that complies with the laws of the country in which the research is conducted.
  8. I will accurately create, maintain, store and dispose of any records of work done in relation to the practice of coaching in a way that promotes confidentiality and complies with any applicable laws.
  9. I will use ICF member contact information (email addresses, telephone numbers, etc.) only in the manner and to the extent authorized by the ICF.
Professional Conduct With Clients
  1. I will be responsible for setting clear, appropriate, and culturally sensitive boundaries that govern any physical contact that I may have with my clients.
  2. I will not become sexually involved with any of my clients.
  3. I will construct clear agreements with my clients, and will honor all agreements made in the context of professional coaching relationships.
  4. I will ensure that, prior to or at the initial session, my coaching client understands the nature of coaching, the bounds of confidentiality, financial arrangements and other terms of the coaching agreement.
  5. I will accurately identify my qualifications, expertise and experience as a coach.
  6. I will not intentionally mislead or make false claims about what my client will receive from the coaching process or from me as their coach.
  7. I will not give my clients or prospective clients information or advice I know or believe to be misleading.
  8. I will not knowingly exploit any aspect of the coach-client relationship for my personal, professional or monetary advantage or benefit.
  9. I will respect the client's right to terminate coaching at any point during the process. I will be alert to indications that the client is no longer benefiting from our coaching relationship.
  10. If I believe the client would be better served by another coach, or by another resource, I will encourage the client to make a change.
  11. I will suggest that my clients seek the services of other professionals when deemed appropriate or necessary.
  12. I will take all reasonable steps to notify the appropriate authorities in the event a client discloses an intention to endanger self or others.
Confidentiality/Privacy
  1. I will respect the confidentiality of my client's information, except as otherwise authorized by my client, or as required by law.
  2. I will obtain agreement from my clients before releasing their names as clients or references, or any other client identifying information.
  3. I will obtain agreement from the person being coached before releasing information to another person compensating me.
Conflicts of Interest
  1. I will seek to avoid conflicts between my interests and the interests of my clients.
  2. Whenever any actual conflict of interest or the potential for a conflict of interest arises, I will openly disclose it and fully discuss with my client how to deal with it in whatever way best serves my client.
  3. I will disclose to my client all anticipated compensation from third parties that I may receive for referrals of that client.
  4. I will only barter for services, goods or other non-monetary remuneration when it will not impair the coaching relationship.

Part Four: The ICF Pledge of Ethics

As a professional coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical obligations to my coaching clients and colleagues and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the ICF Code of Ethics, to treat people with dignity as independent and equal human beings, and to model these standards with those whom I coach. If I breach this Pledge of Ethics or any part of the ICF Code of Ethics, I agree that the ICF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that my accountability to the ICF for any breach may include loss of my ICF membership and/or my ICF credentials.

Do I really need a Life Coach?
This question is just like asking "do I need a personal trainer". You can do some reading and research and get yourself fit, or you can make it easier by getting individual help from an expert. If you allow yourself that help and find the right person, it can seriously speed up your results and make it a lot easier. Of course it also has the advantage of having a human connection where you receive instant feedback.

What is your coaching style?
I look for the deeper issues and I will employ any models or tools which I think will benefit the client. I like logical reasoning behind things, and I hope you'll find me quite down to earth. I want you to feel completely supported, understood and listened to. That doesn't mean I will let you off the hook where I feel you need to be challenged, however. I'll be working to open your mind to ways of thinking that better serve you. I will share insights with you where I feel it's appropriate, and I like to see the funny side of things.

Will the benefits of Life Coaching wear off or will they last?
The goal of my coaching is to facilitate lasting change at a deep level. In order to do this I need to challenge you to push past your comfort zone in the way you think about things and identify and mess up any old strategies or beliefs which are holding you back. The more you approach coaching with an open mind and a willingness and commitment to change, the better the results you will get. There is no certificate to say that you've passed and all your future thinking will be completely sane and constructive, you'll have to continue working at it, but I'm confident you'll experience lasting change if you want to.  (Some people actually don't want to – they're quite attached to their problems, but I can help you with that too).

How is coaching different from mentoring, therapy or counselling?
Patients seeking counselling or therapy may have a problem arising from a specific incident, condition or trauma. Some people are not suitable for coaching because their immediate needs are different and may require medical or more specialized attention.

Mentoring tends to be more focused on a specific area of expertise where the client benefits from the specific knowledge and experience of the mentor in a particular area. Mentoring for specific career or skill areas can be highly beneficial.

Life Coaching can be about the "doing", i.e. helping the client create specific goals, identify specific tasks and commit to them. My coaching is about the "being", that is guiding you to be the person you want and need to be to achieve what you really want out of life.

Is your coaching available in my location?
I coach using the channels described below, sometimes by phone, all over the world. If we are able to communicate effectively in English, get connected by phone, Skype or other mediums and find a mutually suitable time, it can go ahead. I use this meeting planner to compare time zones: click here for time zone meeting planner

What can I expect from the coaching process?
You can expect no judgement, complete confidentiality and my full and undivided attention. I want you to feel listened to, respected and understood. As your coach I enter the sessions with the assumption that you are whole and able. I am "on your side", though that does not mean I will buy into any stories you may be telling yourself which are not serving and empowering you. I will be looking for your strengths and your true capabilities and for ways of bringing those things into your service.

Do you operate by a code of ethics?
Yes, I undertake to abide by the ethical standards set out by the International Coach Federation.

How do I get started?
Fill the Free Consultancy form to the right to schedule an appointment for your free session.  We'll arrange a time to have a chat and I'll answer any questions you may have. If you decide you would like to go ahead and work with me, you select which package you would like and we'll arrange a suitable time for your coaching sessions. You'll then receive a questionnaire to get things started. However, if you are sure of what you want, you can choose a suitable package below.

  1. I understand that a Life Coaching program will provide one-on-one phone coaching during our coaching sessions.
  2. Each phone coaching session will last 60 minutes.
  3. Payment is required prior to each coaching session.
  4. Session cancellations and/or rescheduling must be made within a minimum of 24 hours before any scheduled coaching session by email: coaching@jetroolowole.com. If no notice or late notice is received your coach will be disappointed and your session will be lost and no refunds will be given. Remember, your time slot is set aside for you. So if you don’t give the required 24 hour notice in time then that time slot goes to waste and could have been given to someone else.
  5. At any point, you the client can stop the coaching session and you can terminate the coach- client coaching process at anytime. The Coach can also terminate the coach-client coaching process at anytime. In the event of termination, no compensation will be granted on sessions used up to that point.
  6. I understand that coaching sessions cannot take the place for professional advice by a Medical Doctor, Lawyer, Financial or Business Person, or any other qualified Professional Person.
  7. Coaching does not involve the diagnosis, therapy or treatment of any kind. If you are seeing a Doctor for mental health or other health or non-health reasons, please consult with them first to get permission to see a Life Coach.
  8. It is the role of the Coach to act as a guide during the coaching process. The results that will come from the sessions will depend solely on the responsibility you take for taking action and making the necessary changes you are trying to achieve.
  9. The Coaching sessions are 100% non judgmental and confidential unless required by the law.
