Do You Find Your Niche or Does Your Niche Find You?

Figuring out a niche is perhaps one of the most perplexing and nerve-wracking things for a new coach. Some marketing experts will say you choose a niche. Others say to decide on a niche.  And still others say you must find your niche.

And laser coaching in the group will not only help [...]

Addressing Individual Needs within Group Coaching Sessions

How do you coach a group and still make impact on each individual in the group by being able to address their individual needs? When coaching an individual client, you can easily address their needs by listening deeply to them.  The client sets the agenda, and lets you know what is working along the way.  If their gremlins come up, they can be taken care of.  You can hear the right question to ask because there is only one person talking. In a group, this can become exponentially more complicated.  With more people there are more agendas, more gremlins and [...]
