Abstract: The purpose of this research is to show how life coaching can support the IT start-up entrepreneurs to train their talents. In this research we aim to analyze how life coaching can help IT start-up entrepreneurs to train their talent by applying a qualitative experiment. The experiment covered 5 stages: development and learning strategies, talent, collaboration (life coach-entrepreneur-organization), how to solve problems in a creative way, and align with business and market needs. Selection criteria referred to: entrepreneurs that have not participated in life coaching sessions, years of entrepreneurial experience in IT field 1-3 years, and ages 25-28. Through life coaching sessions, entrepreneurs have set out to expand their business and solve their personal life issues such as different states of emotions, thoughts and behaviors. Life coaching improves the IT entrepreneurs' talent at start-up level, which increases the productivity of the work of the entrepreneurs.
