Coaches are people people. We like other people, it’s why we do what we do. We are the world’s natural helpers.
We’re also not naturally the best at business development – that’s no me being disparaging, its me reflecting on the global statistic that says that 82% of coaching businesses fail.
Why then, do we so often find ourselves working in on our own? Working without the support that we really need to learn how to get clients and to thrive in our businesses?
Online coaching communities are legion. However, almost without exception, they are about coaching technique and not about business building. We coaches are very comfortable with discussing the latest ideas for removing limiting beliefs, or helping our clients overcome, well, anything really.
There is the occasional business-focused group for coaches, one that I know of that’s based overseas is so tightly wrapped that the members can only post about success. They can’t ask questions or ask for help. It’s a real ‘rah-rah-rah’ group and honestly, it’s main output is that it makes people feel inadequate.
Coaching Republic is different. It’s the free community from The Coaching Revolution.
At Last – A Community For You
The Coaching Revolution is first and foremost a community of mentors and mentees who are all walking the same road. That road is the one that leads to paying clients. The only thing that’s different between a mentor and a mentee is that the former has been walking the road for longer and therefore knows what they’re doing. That’s why they mentor others, to show them the map, and help them avoid the pitfalls.
We became increasingly aware that we should have a group for those who aren’t mentees but who could still use our mentors’ help. It is important to us to share what we know to help all coaches, not just our mentees. It’s why I deliver free training webinars to professional associations of coaches.
Coaching Republic is a public group for coaches just like you, in which we share all our knowledge. You can find it here.
It’s free to join and it is lighthearted and entertaining, but most of all, it teaches you everything you need to know to get paying clients. No, it doesn’t offer the 1:1 support that our mentoring programme offers (you can find out more about that here). We do however, share everything that we teach our mentees.
Our core values are on display there. Those values are integrity, simplicity and knowledge. They shape everything we do.
Why don’t you come and join us? You have absolutely nothing to lose, and lots to gain.
