The 10 Major Human Improvement Processes

The reason you hire a life coach is to achieve your coachable goals. The reason your life coach coaches you is to be darn sure you do. Life coaches focus 100% on you.

You have more human improvement choices than you realize


Have you stopped to look at the various methods or processes available to you to improve yourself and/or your life? Wouldn’t it be helpful to understand the various human improvement processes and what they will provide you, before you embark on your own improvement journey?

The Key to Human Improvement Success

The key is to pick the human improvement process that best fits your desired
outcome and your situation. When you match the right improvement process with
the right objectives, you will be surprised at how quickly and effectively you
will achieve the improvements desired.

You will make the right choice when you know what you want to accomplish and
you know the purposes and methods of each of the ten process available to you.
Each of the following ten processes provides unique and different benefits. They
all work extremely well when you match the right human improvement process to
your chosen objectives and when they are conducted under the right conditions
for each method. Frequently, several processes are used together to help people
improve their lives.

The 10 most widely used human improvement processes listed in
alphabetical order are:

The consulting process

The education process

The life coaching process

The mentoring process

The psychiatric process

The self-help process

The spiritual process

The teaching process

The therapy process

The training process

Let’s look briefly at each of the ten human improvement processes to give you
a better understanding of what you can accomplish and how they work.

The consulting process
Consultants are recognized experts in their fields, who either sell their expert advice or perform their expert actions (or both) to complete a task on your behalf. Consultants are hired to solve problems for you. These problems are always external to who you are. Consultants will rarely affect your personal improvement. Some examples of consultants are attorneys, doctors, auto mechanics, and accountants.

The education process
Educators focus on you learning
certain information or concepts. They involve themselves in your learning
process to be sure you grasp the information or concept being conveyed.
Generally, educators are experts in their fields, but not always. Educators will
focus on you improving your knowledge, your understanding of concepts and your
ability to learn.

The life coaching process
The reason you hire a life coach is to achieve your coachable goals. The reason
your life coach coaches you is to be darn sure you do. Life coaches focus 100%
on you. You become the center of attention. Life coaches are equal partners and
are not experts. Coaches assist you to improve and grow as a person as the means to achieving your life improving coachable goals. Life coaches assist you to
become the “world’s leading expert on you” by providing you different, very
objective perspectives about you and encourage you to take the actions necessary to achieve your goals. Life coaches hold you accountable to you so you can concentrate on actually implementing (executing) your chosen goals.

The mentoring process
Mentors focus on providing you sage
advice and wisdom gathered through experience and knowledge when you ask for
their insight. Mentors can be considered a library of human knowledge in the
particular areas of life they have gained expertise. Mentors normally focus on
providing knowledge, understanding and direction, but have been known to help in your improvement as a person when you allow yourself to become the

The psychiatric process
Psychiatrists focus on helping you to overcome mental and thinking imbalances. They are medical doctor experts who provide medications, possibly medical procedures, and behavior change methods to adjust your mental activity back to as normal as possible. Psychiatrists focus exclusively on you improving as a person to get better control of your thinking and emotional activities.

The self-help process
People who use the self-help
process usually follow the advice of self-help books, Television shows, tapes,
seminars, radio shows, and or Internet sites. When using the self-help process,
you must provide the guidance, energy, support, wisdom, and direction to learn
and do what you feel is necessary to accomplish your goals. You may act as your
own teacher to train yourself, to become the expert to solve your problems, by
acting as your own consultant.

The self-help process also requires you to conduct most if not all of the
improving processes alone. It will normally take much longer to accomplish
objectives using the self-help process than it will if you use any of the other
people supported improvement processes listed above. Using the self-help process normally produces incompletion.

It has been reported that the average person reads only 16 pages of a
self-help book. The what, the why and the how are undoubtedly all provided for
practically any subject, but the actual execution without the help of other
people is much more difficult than it appears. It’s apparent that people need
other people to actually grow and improve as a person.

The spiritual (Religious) process
Spiritual people focus
on helping you to relate to another force or higher power outside you. They help
you discover and follow a known or even new belief system of values to guide you
in your moral and or spiritual actions. Usually, spiritual leaders are
considered experts. They focus exclusively on you improving as a person within
the structure of the spiritual beliefs followed. Priests, rabbis, pastors, or
mullahs are considered spiritual leaders.

The teaching process
Teachers focus on providing you
information, data or concepts. Teachers are experts in their field. You are
responsible for absorbing the information provided, so you will become more
knowledgeable. Teachers also do not necessarily focus on improving you as a
person. Teachers will not do the learning for you.

The therapy process
Therapists focus on helping you
overcome past problems that impede your ability to function in a normal day to
day manner. Therapists direct you to revisit past events to discover and resolve
conflicting issues that have burdened you. Therapists are experts in their
field. Therapists direct their sole attention on you to resolve internal
conflicts that will affect your personal improvement. A typical conflict
therapists will help clients resolve is overcoming the mistreatment by parents.

The training process
Trainers focus on teaching you how
to perform something. Trainers are experts in their fields and teach you various
processes, methods, and or skills, to do something in a predetermined manner.
Trainers do not necessarily focus on you improving as a person. Trainers
instruct you on what to do and how to do it. You might use a trainer to learn
how to operate a particular computer program, or how to operate an airplane, or
how to hit a golf ball.
