The past two months our focus was bringing coaching to organizations. This month we will shift to individuals and the business side of coaching. This pertains to coaching practitioners both external (Solopreneur) and internal (working within an organization) as well as those who have blended the two.
As we’ve discussed in previous newsletters and webinars – there is a lot more to success in coaching than excellent coaching skills. This month we will pull the curtain back on The Business of Coaching taking a close look at the biggest challenges faced by coaching practitioners and strategies for overcoming these potential roadblocks. To get a well-rounded picture of coaching challenges and strategies we will take both a macro view and a ‘feet on the street’ view of challenges you may encounter and real-world strategies you can use to overcome. For the macro view, I have pulled a few stats from the 2016 ICF Global Coaching Study. For the ‘feet on the street’ view I will share insights from several coaches including a few from my own experience when I first started my coaching business. Be sure to register for our next webinar to get the ‘feet on the street’ view and hear how these coaches overcame their challenges.
