Life and Executive Coaches
Working one-on-one with a certified Life Coach can help you identify and attain your biggest goals. Our private coaching clients experience significant breakthroughs that lead them to challenge their thinking, resulting in remarkable changes in their careers, relationships and quality of life. Private coaching is personalized to your unique situation and needs.
How Does it Work?
One-on-one life coaching requires commitment from both sides and takes place over an extended period of time, usually weeks to months. In an initial interview, the coach and the client review the desired outcome and then come up with a schedule that seems feasible for both of them.
We’ll be frank with you: one-on-one life coaching isn’t for everyone. It’s hard, soul-searching work with another human being that can make you feel uncomfortable at times.

The Practical Stuff: Coaching by Phone, VOIP
Most life coaches prefer to coach by phone; ours generally do. There are several reasons for this:
- It’s more efficient for both client and life coach. No wasted time traveling to see your coach: attend your coaching sessions wherever you want, in your own office or a conference room at work, at home or even while traveling. Given that most people who hire life coaches are already very busy, this time-savings makes a huge difference.
- Greater choice. When you have to see your private life coach in person, you’re limited to those who happen to be in your local area. What if the best one for you happens to live in Canada and you live in Nebraska? Not a problem on the phone. Private life coaches are experienced in managing the time differences and will work with you to find a mutually agreeable time. The most important thing is to have the right life coach, regardless of geography. I’ve personally coached people all over the world and done it all by phone. So don’t limit yourself or your options!
- The comfort of distance. In our experience, people tend to open up more quickly when they’re on the telephone: the “distance” imposed by the phone gives them the freedom to tell the real truth about their life and what’s going on. While life coaches are sworn to keep coaching details confidential, some people still feel uncomfortable with the thought of bumping into their life coach at the supermarket. If you’re one of those who do, then private life coaching by phone is the perfect choice.
How much does private life coaching cost?
Most life coaches working directly with individuals charge from $500 to $1,000 per month; that’s for three to four 30- to 60-minute calls a month. Executive coaches charge more and typically work with their clients for two hours a month. It all works out to about $300 per hour.
Corporate coaching can cost up to $10,000 per month and usually starts at $500 per hour. This often includes on-site programs and online computerized assessments.

In-person life coaching is appropriate for people who might be hard of hearing or have some disability that requires an in-person meeting. Or, you might just prefer the personal face-to-face aspect of in-person coaching.
Note: life coaching is not the same as therapy. If you need to resolve an issue from your past, have an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or have recently experienced trauma or loss, please seek the professional help of a qualified therapist or social worker in your community right away.
Life coaching or executive coaching, as beneficial as it is, isn’t appropriate for everyone. If you are in need of therapy to resolve an issue from the past, have addictions to drugs or alcohol, have experienced a trauma or loss recently, now is probably not the best time to start changing your life. Seek the help of a therapist or social worker in your community. Consult your doctor for a recommendation.
