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 [...]

Why Top CEOs Are Heavy Users of CEO Coaching

The following representative quotes from executives, entrepreneurs and the media state the many benefits derived from the CEO Coaching process: “Employers are shocked at how high their ROI numbers are for coaching.” ~ Alastair Robertson, Manager of worldwide leadership development, Accenture “Many of the World’s most admired corporations, from GE to Goldman Sachs, invest in coaching. Annual spending on coaching in the US is estimated at roughly $1 Billion Dollars.” ~ Harvard Business Review “In one study, executive coaching at Booz Allen Hamilton returned $7.90 for every $1 the firm spent on coaching.” ~ MetrixGlobal LLC “I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities.” ~ Bob Nardelli, former CEO, Home Depot “I’ll bet most of the companies that are in life-or-death [...]

Become THE Solution to Your Client’s Biggest Challenge

There is something so attractive about being very clear about your niche, the challenge of the people in that niche, and the solution you provide. When you can articulate this clearly, you become the ‘go to’ person for this particular group of people. It is easy to recommend you. Clients feel drawn to a specialist. If you were going to run a marathon, would you buy shoes at any old store, or would you go to a store that specialized in running shoes? Becoming a specialist will make practice development much easier. Here’s how I identified my specialty. When I received my niche of coaching new coaches, and decided to accept that group as my focal point, my community, I [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

4 Keys to a Successful Business Partnership

I have a confession. I am not really a person that is attracted to partnership. That may sound strange, since I really love people and have lots of friends and strong relationships. Yet I have always treasured my independence, and cherish being alone. I am the oldest of 6 children, and as such, have been a leader all my life (when I was 2 years old, I was the oldest of 3 children, so I don't ever remember not being a leader...). Because I was left to my own devices at a very early age, I have always made my own decisions, and many times, was called on to make decisions for others too. Being single my whole life has [...]
