Live training Accelerator Day

Many of our students really appreciate the practical emphasis of this live training Accelerator Day and in feedback it is consistently rated as one of our best live training days – particularly for those very new to coaching. If your fear of turning your new skills into a viable coaching business seems a daunting task, the advice you can pick up here will seem like gold dust.

Much of the emphasis here is on the type of detail you will need to get right in order to thrive as a coach - in addition to being an expert in the coaching skill set itself. So for instance, what is the best way to respond to telephone enquiries? How will you explain what coaching is, and its benefits, in such a way that the client signs up right away? What information should you take when a potential client first contacts you? How do you progress forward to that wonderful moment when you can sign a contract?

This training day guides you through key steps that are vital to you as you launch your coaching business. You will learn how to run a client intake session and how to make sure that it goes smoothly along with how to keep control of the session.

As the title of the day suggests, this part of the Personal Performance diploma is full of the advice you will need to succeed. One key piece of advice is on – how not to give advice! As a new coach it can be so tempting to do that, but of course we know we mustn’t, as it is beyond a coach’s expertise to do so.

You will also consider how to project the image of the professional coach; how to build a series of sessions for your client so that their expectations are met; and how to include exercises and homework in the on-going relationship you build with your clients.

And finally you will consider for a moment your own well-being and how to you look after your own energy during a challenging series of coaching sessions.

The Practicalities of Getting Going as a Coach covers the following topics:

  • Responding to telephone enquiries
  • Explaining coaching and coach expectations
  • Pre-contact information
  • Contracts/agreements
  • Running an intake session
  • Keeping control of sessions
  • Not giving advice
  • Looking after own energy
  • The image of a professional coach
  • Building a series of sessions
  • Beginnings and endings
  • Setting homework and exercises
