Educational Webinars

The Business of Coaching

If you are just starting your practice or you are ready to see your practice soar, this webinar is for you.



You've already got the coaching skills, now is the time to learn what it takes to Make it as a Coach and Build a Successful Practice.

It takes more than great coaching skills to create a thriving coaching practice. We've seen too many excellent coaches falter when it comes time to launch their coaching practice - just because they don't have the business skills.

You wouldn’t have started coaching without coaching skills so why would you start a business without business skills? Our next webinar takes you through tips for success when you are ready to start or grow your own coaching business.

We'll look at steps you can take before you open for business as well as tips for success during the first year.

Topics we will cover include;

  • Where do I want to go? Your vision and goals
  • What do I need to know? Education / training
  • How do I get there? Business / marketing plan
  • How do I get on the express lane? Operating systems / Getting help
  • Time for Q and A
