The Value of Taking Inspired Actions

In developing my coaching practice, I have learned the importance of taking inspired actions. By that, I mean actions that resonate with my essence energy and values. These actions allow me to radiate my true self. When I radiate my true self, the clients that come to me are a mirror of that to me. They are a perfect fit. When my actions are not inspired, I find that I attract a lot of high maintenance clients, ones that are not a good fit. When I first came into coaching, I had a post-it note on my wall with a quote from Abraham-Hicks. And it said, “Line up your energy and take the inspired action.” That really became my business [...]

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 [...]

The Hidden Benefits of Laser Coaching in a Group Coaching Experience

I received this question on group coaching a couple of months ago: “I'm thinking of doing no "teaching" but doing laser coaching for each person so that everyone can get some experience of my coaching. Is that a good idea and any recommendation on how to best do this?” First of all, this is a GREAT idea!  “No teaching” is actually the best way of being a group coach.  This allows you to focus on bringing out the wisdom of each person in the group, rather than sharing your own. And laser coaching in the group will not only help the person who is being coached; there are hidden benefits for everyone in the group.  Laser coaching of an individual [...]

Price Management for Group Coaching

As someone who plans to set up group coaching during my first year as a coach, and would still be on a steep learning curve, could you suggest a rough correlation as to the cost for group coaching for an individual as compared to 1-1 coaching? Setting up a coaching group in your first year as a coach is a great idea!  It gives a more affordable rate for clients to access your coaching.  They can get an experience of you, and you can receive more income per hour with a group.  Once they get to know, like and trust you through working with you in the group, then you can enroll them in future VIP programs or individual coaching. [...]

Marketing Your Group Coaching

How do you market group coaching? This is a big question, and can have as many answers as there are coaches.  Marketing your group depends on your ideal client, how they like to be communicated with, and what has gotten you the best results in marketing your individual coaching. Have an ideal client in mind, with a compelling challenge that they want to solve. When your marketing is focused on a certain client and a challenge that keeps them up at night, it will have a greater chance of being successful.  Here are some examples -- For example, the ideal client could be a mom of a teenager and the challenge could be how to improve communication.   Then your group [...]

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 a bunch more questions. Right?  Well, yes and no. While this is true, it is only partially true.  As a [...]

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 [...]

Are You Seeing the Forest or the Trees?

I had a very productive VIP day at my home awhile back with an amazing group of coaches who are bringing love and transformation to businesses and organizations.  The women in this group are beautiful and talented, and all very accomplished, with advanced degrees (2 have their PhD’s and one is working on hers). And as smart as they are, their answer to one of the first questions I asked them astounded me.  When I asked them their intentions for the day, they all had some very specific and tangible outcomes that they wanted to walk away with.  Everything that they wanted was very do-able. What surprised me was that my intention list for them was much longer and robust [...]
