    Hi Todd, just a question on this topic. If in coaching, the coach isn’t supposed to give advice, how come a Financial coach (or a Life coach) has to learn or be knowlegable in Finance and Investments to specialize as a financial coach? how does the knowledge in finance and investment comes to play in financial coaching if the coach will not advice the client but rather ask only questions? 
    Your feedback will appreciated Coach Todd

      chrisazuka If you read my companion article on the difference between coaching and mentoring it should answer your question. They are different techniques used at different times for specific circumstances. Coaching is one technique. Mentoring is another technique. They require different skills and backgrounds. Stated in an entirely different way, you can’t be a very guide if you don’t already know the territory.
