What Your Coaching Client Needs

What Your Coaching Client Needs

You're a great coach. You absolutely understand what kind of clients you want to work with.  You know what your coaching client needs. The issue you've had so far (if I had to hazard a guess) is that people just don't seem to understand what you do. Am I right? Your...

I Don’t Want To Coach THAT Kind Of Client!

What kind of client would you like to coach? This week I had a very interesting conversation with a woman who described herself as a political activist. This woman works full-time supporting the seriously disadvantaged; women in refuges and the homeless, to name but...
