Whether you call them a life coach, personal strategist or mentor, having a guiding presence in your life can be hugely beneficial to your personal and professional development. Rather than telling you what to do, a good life coach will help you create a vision for where you want your life to go and then assist you in reaching that destination. The tricky part is finding one and knowing whether they are any good. This infographic explains what prospective 'life students' need to know.
