What is a Coaching Program, and How is it More Valuable Than Coaching Sessions?

What is the difference between a coaching program and a series of coaching sessions that aren’t part of a program? A fellow coach recently asked me this, and I thought it was a very good question. To my knowledge, there is no official consensus regarding what differentiates a program from any other type of coaching, and there are different ways to structure a program. But there are some criteria that I find useful for making the distinction. In this article, I'll explain what those criteria are, and how they can make coaching... Read More

How do I Lay Out the Content for my Group Coaching Program?

A coach recently asked me, "How do you lay out the information you'll include in your group coaching program?" This can be a tricky process for a coach; if you're used to structuring your coaching around your client's questions and a two-way dialogue, organizing your information into a step-by-step curriculum without that feedback might be new territory for you. But it CAN be easy, once you know the basic principles. In this video, I describe the simple method I use to organize the information for my coaching programs, and for any other... Read More

What Bonuses and Handouts Should You Include in Your Group Coaching Program?

If you're anything like me, when you create a group coaching program, you want your clients to LOVE it. You want to change their lives, blow their socks of, and inspire them to refer their friends and family to you! One of the best ways to do that is by helping them to get the result they desire with as little time, guesswork and effort as possible. And a great way to accomplish that is to give them handouts and bonuses that make it easier to get that result, or that do some of their work for them. That's the good news. The BAD news is,...

How to Define and Describe the Transformation Your Coaching Creates

A coach recently asked me, "How do you nail down the transformation you create in your group coaching program?" This is an excellent question, and it's very important for you to know the answer before you start designing your program. It's also essential for attracting clients, because people aren't looking for videos, coaching calls or PDFs; they're looking for a way to change a specific part of their lives! When you know exactly what kind of transformation you create for your clients, you can laser-focus your program on the exact... Read More

How Selling to Too Wide an Audience Can Make Your Clients Angry

Happy New Year! As we start 2020, one way to set yourself up for success is to make sure you're marketing to the right people - and that you aren't marketing to people who will be justifiably angry with you if you sell them your product or services. When I talk about marketing to the right people, I don't just mean picking a niche by age, gender, marital status, and whether or not they have kids. In this blog post, I'm going to share an example of how bad audience selection left me ticked off at a coach who'd enrolled me into his program,... Read More

What To Do If You Don't Have Enough Material For A Group Coaching Program

When coaches who are used to working one-on-one start to create their first group program, some of them worry that they don't have enough material to build a full curriculum. They get held up by doubts, such as, "I normally get a lot of my coaching material by listening to my clients and offering guidance based on what they said. How can I pull together enough information to make a full course without the client's active input?" In this video, I'll give you a quick, simple method for overcoming this obstacle.
