Group Coaching – Visualizing Your Ideal Group and Topic

We’ve been talking about the six-step model of group coaching. Now it’s time for the juicy part…the CONTENT! In the third step of a coaching group, the coach provides thought-provoking questions—or jumping off points—that are related to the group theme or topic. In order to do this with ease, there are a couple pieces that need to be put into place: visualizing exactly who is your ideal group member; and determining a topic that is very juicy for this person! First, get yourself in the receiving frame of mind. You may want to step away from your computer. Instead, this is the time to nourish your creativity. Do you like to journal? Go find that beautiful pen and lovely journal. Burn [...]

68 Seconds to Creation!

When I began my coaching practice, I was very intrigued by the concept of manifestation.  I listened to hours and hours of Abraham-Hicks audios.  I read Laura Day, Catherine Ponder and Wayne Dyer, and was very intent on unlocking the secret to instant manifestation.  In fact, this concept still intrigues me to this day. The idea that pure thought, held for a certain period of time, could replace hours and even years of action in the creation process was one that I played with a lot in those days.  In fact, it was said that 17 seconds of pure positive thought energy would equal 2,000 “man-hours” of work, and that if you went to 68 seconds, it would equate with [...]

The Standards of Presence

The Approach: Co-creating a Safe EnvironmentAll groups that come together for the purpose of learning, creating, communicating, living or celebrating are served when the creation and maintenance of a safe space is established. A truly safe group environment provides the basis for powerful transformation, empowering exploration, inspired collaboration and vibrant living. The use of the Standards of Presence, a clearly articulated and easy to understand set of guidelines, provides a proven container of safety in any group. The Underlying Principle: Acceptance The primary underlying principle of the Standards of Presence is acceptance. Know that everyone is doing their best to learn, grow, respect, and follow these Standards. Self-acceptance is particularly beneficial to experience a safe, empowering environment to learn, create, [...]

Receiving Your Niche

Determining a niche is perhaps one of the most perplexing and nerve-wracking things for a new coach. Some people call it choosing a niche. Many marketing gurus say that you must make a decision about this, and that it is going to be the entire foundation of your practice, so you had better get it right! That’s a lot of pressure for a new coach! And it is unnecessary, IMHO. When I began coaching, I did not know much about niches or ideal clients. I didn’t make a conscious decision about who I would be coaching. My niche actually found me, and I received these clients wholeheartedly with great joy, because the niche was so natural to me. Your ideal [...]

Your Essence Energy

The concept of essence energy came to me when I first began to do speaking engagements. I wanted to have a deliberate way to get into a state of being that was very powerful for me while I was up in front of the room. I wanted to have a way of quantifying my own energy. What I have noticed is that each person has their very own essence energy. Your essence energy is the energy that you exude when you are feeling empowered and strong. It is the feeling you have that comes from deep within, like the name that describes my true self. It’s that feeling you get when you have gotten up on the ‘right side of [...]

10 Ways to Increase Your Capacity to Receive

One of the most important aspects of running your business is your own internal capacity to receive. As a business owner, you must receive income, clients, guidance, and more. Yet as a coach, your inclination is to give. You are here to bring light to the world and support others in their transformation. This is all about giving. You have been a giver all of your life. It is easy to forget about your ‘receiving muscle’. Over the years, I have done many different self-development practices to increase my internal capacity to receive, and each time I have up-leveled my inner capacity, I have reaped rewards in my business: new clients, income from unexpected sources, opportunities that just came to [...]

Become Like the Pied Piper!

The Pied Piper story came to mind as I was thinking about following up with prospective clients.  Remember the story of the guy who played his song, and all the village children followed him?  This is a perfect metaphor for attraction in a coaching practice. I know that as each of us plays our own unique authentic song (shares our own signature message with the world), then others will hear, and follow us.  It sounds easy.  And it can be.  But in my coaching business, I realized that this was only half of the story.  And that I had to embrace the other half of the story in order for my clients to have true success. The other half of [...]

Speaking In Front Of Groups – Gulp, I received my first invitation, now what?

I have become a contributing author to a new online magazine called Healers Unite! My article entitled "Speaking in Front of Groups: Gulp, I received my first invitation, now what?" is featured in  the March issue in the category: Anxiety No More. I would like to share an excerpt from my article and invite you to share YOUR stories about speaking in front of groups... Do you ever experience “dread energy” when creating your presentation? Take a moment to reconnect with your source. Be fully delighted as you recall your stories. Visualize the listeners as they become engaged and moved during your presentation. Imagine meeting up with these same listeners, perhaps a year later, and picture them telling you how much you inspired them. [...]

The Energy of Your Business

Everything in my life has energy, and yours also. If you have a relationship with another person, it’s easy to see that the relationship has its own energy. It’s an amalgamation of two people. That makes sense to me. This thing about a business having its own energy was a little strange at first. Perhaps that’s also different than how you usually think about your business. We’ve all heard of a business having a mission, but not necessarily a soul. If you know your essence energy, values and purpose, then it’s really easy to make decisions. I would call my personal essence energy, “tender exuberance.” I feel this love and tenderness. I also have this very exuberant feeling within me. [...]
