The Coaching Revolution
Helping Coaches To Earn A Living, Doing What They Love
The Qualified Coach
Qualified, or just about to be? Just setting out on your coaching career? Your coaching skills will be honed to perfection, but what about your business skills? In particular, your business development skills? They’re probably not so honed, as rarely do training providers cover them. The Coaching Revolution offers mentoring to help you navigate the road to success. We share our knowledge with you so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes we made. We also offer first class coaching material, that’s not prescriptive. You’re the professional, you know how to coach, you just need a framework within which to coach. That’s what we do.
The Aspiring Coach/Mentor
You have a life-time of experience, both work-based and real-life based. You’re at the top of your game professionally and you find yourself thinking ‘is this it?’. It may be that you’ve found yourself in a situation whereby your role was made redundant. Your desire to share what you know with the next generation, to help them avoid the pitfalls you know are there is huge. But….. Can you go it alone? Do you need a qualification? What if it doesn’t work? Is the right thing to do to stop dreaming and just get your head down until retirement?
Coaching Changes Lives
We’re Changing Coaches Lives
Coaches Are People People
We coaches are people who love to help. Because of this, our core values include those of supporting and motivating people to be the best version of themselves. We gain our qualifications or experience and we set out to change the world. Then we discover that getting clients, paying clients, is a whole different ball-game and before you know it, we are coaching or mentoring for free. Sound familiar? Or worse, sound like a nightmare scenario – you have to make a living, right? Some of us coach for free because of our compulsion to help, our commitment to this way of working and the fact that we haven’t found a way to make coaching viable – a way to get paying clients. Others do have clients that pay, but have found themselves discounting fees ‘to get the business’ and will have discovered that this is a race to the bottom. It doesn’t have to be that way!
The Coaching Revolution
Is a thriving community of professional coaches, all heading in the same direction. That direction is towards financially successful coaching businesses. What does ‘financially successful’ mean? Well, you get to decide that.
We exist both online and offline – we meet face-to-face in the UK on a quarterly basis.
We have members in the UK, The Netherlands, Greece, Germany, the Czech Republic and Australia. Wherever we are we have one thing in common; we are passionate about coaching, because coaching changes lives!
How Do We Make Coaching Viable?
The Coaching Revolution mentors have successful coaching businesses. We’ve all walked the walk and have all the scars to show for it. What that means for you is that you don’t have to fall into the same pitfalls that we have; you get to learn from our combined experience.
In addition, we teach a simple, pragmatic process for creating a coaching business. That process is this:
- First, we help you to work out who the people are, who are most likely to want to pay you for your coaching
- Next, we support you to craft your unique marketing message, that describes exactly to the people who are most likely to pay you, the benefits to them, of working with you
- Finally, we help you to work out where these people are, both on and offline
This Is What We Know:
- are not natural sales people. In fact, selling can make us uncomfortable
- don’t know where to look for clients, particularly clients who can pay
- need mentoring and don’t have access to successful coach/mentors to get it (unless we pay £££££££ – think Rich Litvin or Tony Robbins)
- need support to set and then achieve their own business goals
- love to network with like-minded professionals
- embrace Continuing Professional Development
- love to share their knowledge and experience
- want a framework around which to hang a coaching business
We don’t work with every coach. In fact, we’re very specific about the kind of coach we work with. The two attributes our mentees must bring to the party are an open mind and a willingness to take the actions agreed with their mentor at the end of every session.
