special case of coaching professionals is the one of coaches
I've built a practice speciality of coaching coaches who have
achieved an advanced level of coaching skill.
you are a master
coach and you have outgrown your coach or are currently un-coached,
let me tell you some of my story.
started coaching in 1987. It was not a plan - the coaching profession
even exist. I simply helped one business owner think things through
differently than he had been able to do on his own. His business
doubled in 100 days. He told someone, who told someone and soon
I was working regularly, nights and weekends, for free! I
thought I had found a great hobby.
January of 1990 I ended my day job, declared myself to be a coach,
hung out my shingle
started growing my practice. It was slow going.
of years later my wife sat down with me to review our financial
situation. In summary, she pointed out that we had no money and
that each month our debt was growing. I simply was not earning a
living being a coach. Her question was, "Do you have a plan?"
Without even having to think about my response, I asked her to figure
out how to keep us afloat for one more year, by whatever means we
could. I explained that while I had not yet figured out how to be
financially successful at coaching, I was doing what I was
really meant to do. Even today I can't explain the feeling
I had, the feeling of rightness of purpose, but it has grown deeper
over a year later I ran into Thomas Leonard and hired him to be
my first paid coach. Within two weeks my coaching practice took
off and my financial situation turned around. He helped me take
all the pieces I had developed - coaching skills, client processes,
sales abilities, and business systems - and optimize them so that
my coaching, which had been very useful for my clients, also became
financially rewarding for me. As a coach I was doing a lot of good;
my newly designed practice allowed me to also do well. (A
do for other coaches what Thomas did for me.
