It’s a new year, which means it’s time to envision what you want the year to look like so you can turn that vision into a reality. One thing that’s part of many coaches’ vision for any year is getting clients. This is why our first webinar for the CAM Community of Coaches in 2022 will focus on “7 Ways to Get Clients in 2022.” In this 45-minute webinar, Brian and I will share practical ideas for finding and contracting with new clients in the new year. Our goal is for you to walk away from the webinar with some new ideas and a fresh commitment to doing what it takes to get clients. (After all, you can’t change the world as a coach if you don’t have people to coach!)
Join us January 13 @11am Eastern for the webinar or come back to the website to watch the recording the following week!
One of the most important things a coach does is “evoke awareness” for the client. The ICF describes two kinds of awareness: awareness about the issue (“what”) and awareness about the client (“who”). Both are important.
Beginner coaches tend to struggle to help the client come up with their own awareness of any sort. Better coaches support new awareness, but mostly about the issue at hand. Mature, professional-level coaches support new awareness about the issue and about the client as a person.
This month’s focus in the CAM Community of Coaches is on coaching the person. This is something Christian coaches especially desire since it leads to deep change, growth, and transformation. If you missed the Member Webinar, be sure to check out the recording here on the member website!
In coaching (as in most of life), it’s tempting to overdo things, especially good things. Such is the case with coaching questions. Questions are a good and important aspect of coaching, which is why it’s so tempting to overdo questions. We can put so much emphasis on questions that we begin to think there’s little else to coaching other than asking the right question at the right time.
Once we wake up to the fact that there’s much more to coaching than asking questions, it’s tempting to overdo this fact! In our efforts to put questions in their proper place, we can deemphasize them too much. Ugh!
In this month’s community focus, we’re going to do our best to put questions in their rightful place. While questions are not everything about coaching, they are still important and they matter greatly. So during this month’s members only webinar, we’re going to give them some well-deserved attention (without overdoing it!).
Join the webinar live on November 11 at 11am Eastern Time, or watch the video here on the member website. See you then!
