A Different Framework for Goal Setting as a Coach

Hi coach! In this episode of The Coaching Edge, we’ll discuss the importance of goal setting and how it should be an ongoing practice. I emphasize the value of setting specific revenue goals for business success, and I’ll also introduce the concept of setting goals based on how we want to feel rather than what we want to achieve.

Reflecting on progress and achievements is an essential step in goal setting. I’ll suggest focusing on supporting specific clients and improving coaching skills. I also encourage you to take control of your personal growth outside of the business and take risks to overcome fear. Tune in to get some of my best tips about goal setting in your personal and professional life.

Marketing Mindset Matters with Coach Christy Osborne

One thing that I find that coaches who are building a business continually misunderstand is the business of marketing. It can feel so overwhelming that we resist showing up in this part of our business. But here’s the reality; without it, you don’t have a business, let alone a profitable one. So I’ve invited Coach Christy Osborne back so we could talk about the mindset you have to embrace to attract the clients you want.

We’ll talk about why you don’t have to have a degree in marketing to grow your coaching business, and why you need to start by picking one medium and platform that feels most natural to you and commit to showing up consistently there. We’ll share examples from our own experience of how the like, know, and trust factor is critical in a successful coaching business and why you have to commit to the long game in your marketing strategy to build it.
