Coaching Vs Consulting: What's The Difference & How To Decide What's Right For You?

Become A Coach

In short, coaches help their clients by PULLING out the answer from the person they are working with, rather than telling them exactly what to do.

You can also think of a coach as someone who is more like a guide than anything else, offering perspective to their clients during times of indecision.

Coming Up: In the next lesson of this guide to coaching and consulting, you'll see some examples of coaches we believe are doing a great job in their chosen space.

In order for a coach to function properly, they should also have extensive knowledge in the industry they are coaching in.

Characteristics of a Great Coach

In order to be a successful coach you should have most, if not all of these character traits:

  1. Decisive
  2. Compassionate
  3. Empathetic
  4. Creative
  5. Charming

If this sounds like you, then you will probably make a great coach!

Become A Consultant

Consultants unlike coaches, help their clients by TELLING them exactly what to do at any given moment.

For example, if a client has a problem that is preventing them from taking further action, they could pay a consultant who already has the answer to tell them what action they should take next.

A coach on the other hand, may not know the answer, but they could guide their client in the right direction towards finding it themselves.
