What’s the difference between coaching and counseling?
Counseling plays an important role in helping a man repair or recover from mental or emotional health challenges.
3 in 10 men struggle with some kind of mental or emotional health challenge.
Men are more likely to become addicted to alcohol or drugs than women.
Men are more likely to commit suicide than women.
Only 1 in 4 will talk to a counselor about their problem.
Counseling plays a lifesaving role in helping men recover. Everyone needs to do their part to help men get help. Men can help themselves by talking with a trained counselor. Talking with a counselor is not a sign that a man is weak. It’s a bold declaration that he’s going to do whatever it takes to get stronger.
Coaching plays an important role in helping a man discover, develop, and use his strengths.
Coaching is built on the understanding that every man has strengths. Strengths waiting to be maximized.
A man doesn’t need to wait until he’s mentally or emotionally healthy to hire a coach. Every man has strengths and abilities he can leverage to show up in an effective way and create powerful benefit for himself, his family, his company, his world.
What resources are available for a man eager to discover how coaching can help him be the best man he can be?
