What a Relationship Coach does
A relationship coach’s job is to get a deep understanding of a client’s relationship issue, then provide actionable steps and guidance to improve the client’s relationship.
A relationship coach isn’t a therapist. Therapy is focused on mental health and a client’s inner state, while relationship coaching is more externally focused.
A relationship coach is an empathetic listener but does not always agree with the client and tell the client nice things that the client wants to hear. A relationship coach is a helpful professional, not the client’s personal friend.
You have a unique skill set
Are you an empathetic person who is also a critical and analytical thinker? Are you someone friends come to for relationship advice? We’re hiring people who have these kinds of skills.
Do you already have professional experience as a relationship coach? That’s great. But even if you’ve never done it professionally, we’ve built a training program just for you. And if your job application is accepted, we’ll pay you to do our training program.
Relationship Coach is a unique job
Compared to other remote jobs like customer service agent or executive assistant, being a relationship coach is pretty different.
Relationship coaching involves talking on the phone or texting in a chatroom to help clients around the world navigate their relationships with their boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, kids, friends, family, and coworkers.
There’s a lot to learn before you’ll be really good at it. We’ll train you on many principles and techniques.
Managing your stress is also a challenge when you’re coaching a client who is feeling intense emotional pain. We teach techniques for providing empathetic coaching while also maintaining a level of detachment from the client’s emotions.
It’s fulfilling to help people
We all deeply value our relationships. When we have relationship issues, we really want to fix them, but we often don’t know how. Relationship Hero is the most popular service that provides 1-on-1 coaching focused on building & maintaining healthy relationships.
Our clients are very thankful to their coaches. Here are the latest reviews and videos from our clients talking about how Relationship Hero has helped them.
It’s a rewarding feeling to wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night knowing that you’re making a difference to improve people’s lives. And as the days, weeks, and months pass, you can observe how your clients’ lives improve from the impact of your coaching.
You’re joining a great team
If you’re passionate about relationship coaching, it’s a rare treat to be able to work with a team of over 100 professional relationship coaches. Each coach contributes their own insight to our company, and many of them have written parts of our training program that you’ll learn from.
We’re all one big coaching team, all trained on the same coaching tools and techniques. That’s why we can provide 24/7 service to clients — there’s always a coach available who can catch up on their situation, not just the same person who coached them last time.
We’re easy to make friends and connections with. The same qualities that our clients value in their coaches — their empathy, low ego, non-judgmental style, helpfulness, their great listening ability — also makes for great teammates.
Since we know that working remotely can be isolating, we have regular calls and video chats to keep everyone feeling connected.
You’re joining a fast-growing startup
Relationship Hero is a startup from Silicon Valley, California. A startup is a company that starts small and then grows rapidly to serve many millions of customers. You’ve heard of startups like AirBnB, Netflix and Reddit which also started in Silicon Valley and grew to serve many millions of customers around the world. Our company is backed by the same investors as these companies:
- Y Combinator — the first investor in AirBnB and Reddit
- Foundation Capital — an early investor in Netflix
- Village Global —invests money from Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg
Today Relationship Hero has 100 coaches and serves many thousands of clients. In the next 2–3 years, we’re hiring over 1,000 additional coaches. We need to hire this many coaches because the number of clients in the world who need a relationship coach is many millions. So today, you’re actually one of the first people to join our startup.
It’s better for you to join a company that’s growing fast than to join one that isn’t. As the company grows, there are many areas to manage, which creates career growth opportunities for everyone on the team.
Our company values
When you have an idea for something that could help the company, we’d like you to speak up and lead the initiative, and we’ll empower you with the time and resources to do it.
Candor means honesty together with openness. It means you never have to say polite BS to us, you can be open and honest. No one has a big ego here. You can criticize any manager and point out any problems, even to the CEO. They may or may not agree with everything you say, but they will always value that you are speaking up with candor.
Our mission is to help our clients improve their relationships. It’s what guides the principles of our coaching and our business. We also value being helpful to one another within our team; for example, we provide internal support sessions to coaches (actually we pay you to do them).
We don’t have an office building anywhere. Everyone is equally part of the company no matter where they work from.
Everyone’s success here is judged equally according to their business impact and our company values, no nepotism.
Supporting coach wellness
We have a wellness team that offers support from your fellow team members. Each coach gets paid for participating in 1-on-1 wellness sessions multiple times per month. Our goal is to make coaching a rewarding and sustainable career for you.
Career growth opportunities
Performance is one of our company values, and we promote fast here. Most coaches become Senior Coaches and earn a large raise within 6–12 months of joining. Check out our post about How Raises and Promotions Work at Relationship Hero
