Building a Successful Coaching Practice
Live training Accelerator Day
With the new skills you have developed, the extensive coaching practice you will have undertaken, and a growing toolkit of models and techniques ready to hand, many of our diploma students begin to think of developing a coaching practice. This live training day focuses on some of the key activities that will get you up and running.
Defining your coaching niche can be a powerful way of moving yourself forward and into business. But what is a niche? And which would suit you? Your own background and interests will guide you. As a pointer we include DVDs teaching retirement coaching, health and wellbeing and stress in with this module.
This part of the course will help you in defining your coaching niche, and having achieved that, in helping to market it. The clearer you are about defining exactly the niche you are in, the easier it will be to market your new business service. We discuss the role of some of your most important business communications from your business cards to your new coaching website, as well as some key legal aspects of starting your coaching practice such as the importance of abiding by the data protection rules.
Last but definitely not least we discuss the subject that will be very close to your heart: getting paid! Your client invoices are just one side of the coin. The taxman needs paying too, and this session also considers VAT registration.
Throughout your diploma programme, a comprehensive resource of samples, scripts and plans is provided. Follow these as much as you wish until you have developed your own ideal way of doing things.

Five Ways To Build Rapport
What we say can create or destroy rapport, but interestingly only 7% of communication is the spoken word. Our body language and our tone of voice are more important than the actual words spoken.
Limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. Limiting beliefs are simply assumptions about reality that are not true. In order for our actions to have the greatest positive effect, we need to have beliefs that are as close to reality as possible - deceiving ourselves will take us further from the goal.
The GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Will) model is the most common and widely used coaching tool. It empowers the coach to structure a coaching conversation and deliver a meaningful result.
The GROW acronym suggests that a coach using the GROW model is likely to start by asking the client to set goals, both for what they want to get out of the coaching sessions as a whole and for each individual session.

This younger sister was the pretty one, the one who got all the boys, according to Lucy.
Going For The Goal
One of the core skills most coaches deal with is goal setting. It seems relatively straight forward, yet most of us and our clients find it hard to achieve the goals we’ve set, so let’s take a good look at why that is and what we can do about it. The most common model for goal-setting is represented by the acronym SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time based. The other element that is usually stressed is that the goal should be positive; for instance, instead of saying “I will lose 20 pounds,” one might say, “I will have a stable, healthy weight of 12 stone.
