So you want to be a coach?
So you want to be a coach?
Well, I’ll be honest with you, just knowing that you want to be a coach puts you further along on this path than I was when I embarked on this adventure.
I was the marketing director for the world’s largest real estate office. Over the years I worked with 1,000’s of agents who were launching or re-launching their business. I had a great time, the money was good, the work came easily to me and I enjoyed helping people. But to be honest with you, I wasn’t happy.
Then one of my clients and dear friend died.
As I was sitting at her memorial service, I knew that I wasn’t living the life I really wanted. I knew I was just going through the motions.
Ben Franklin said, some people die at 25 but aren’t buried until they are 75. That’s how I felt sitting at that memorial service.
So I took a good look at my life to figure out what I needed to do to feel more fulfilled, to feel more joy, to make a bigger impact and to maintain or improve my income.
Taking stock of the conversations I had everyday with agents, I knew I was really good at helping them, not just with marketing their personal brand, but also the method of launching their business.
So I created an online, group coaching program that taught just that.
I also started doing one-on-one coaching with folks, helping them through the challenges that life was throwing at them.
And that combination of helping from a distance and helping one-on-one when I wanted to…is when I caught the coaching bug. I really liked helping people. I really liked the freedom that coaching offered me. I liked the income. I really liked being a coach.
I was good at something, and I knew I could help other people develop that skill set.
Coaching, both being a coach and having a coach, profoundly changed my life.
When I got into this world I was totally hooked on personal and professional development. I couldn’t get enough of it.
I absolutely love it, I know this may sound corny, but I’ll say it anyway…. it feels like all my life I was preparing for this.
Next Level Coaching is the culmination of those years of experience and research and I am so excited to share it with you.
I wanted to take just a few minutes to tell you what you get when you come to Certified Next Level Coach Training.
Let’s start with the outcomes….
When you finish certification training, you get a fancy certificate that says you are a Certified Next Level Coach. What does that mean?
Well, honestly, only what you make of it.
Coaching isn’t a regulated industry. So anyone can go out there and say they are a life or business coach. Our curriculum is suited for both paths.
Training is 5 days of intensive learning, role-playing and workshops, broken out into 2 parts:
1) the curriculum and 2) your coaching business
The curriculum – what’s this about?
There’s a book called “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Victor Frankl that I read several years ago that got me thinking about writing a coaching curriculum. In his book, he talks about the gap between where you are and where you want to be, he calls this idea “logotherapy”.
This idea of the gap wasn’t new to me, I had heard it before. I have suffered from anxiety for a long time and one of the definitions of anxiety that I had read somewhere was, anxiety is the tension that exist between the way things are, and the way you want them to be.
This gap idea, has been floating around in my head and I knew it was something I wanted to explore.
So my life has really been spent trying to fill that gap. What are the things that lie in that gulf that will help you get to where you want to be?
I started researching that idea and what developed out of it was the Next Level Coaching Curriculum.
There are 12 ideas that I suggest we must confront on our journey to our next level.
- Clarity and Purpose
- Money Mindset
- Skill Development
And what I learned through my own process of research and discovery was that these things were applicable to me as an entrepreneur, a business person and as a human being. It addressed my personal and professional development. That’s why we have both business and life coaches in our training.
And then there’s the training for your coaching business…
Maybe it’s my past life that causes me to obsess over this, but just knowing the material isn’t going to do much good. You have to take that information and go use it to help people and get paid for doing so. So we’ll spend part of your training, just talking about your coaching business.
One of the things that people are surprised by, is that being a coach, doesn’t have to be limited to just one-on-one coaching. You can have group coaching, like I have. You can have masterminds, host retreats, create online courses, do speaking gigs.
I told you, being a coach is pretty amazing!
We’re going to talk about all these revenue sources in your training. I’ll help you get a plan together for what your business is going to look like and teach you how to execute on that vision.
Our training sessions are intentionally small. We take a very limited number of coaching candidates. This is so that while you are in training, you get the attention you deserve, the role playing and observation hours that will make the biggest difference, and genuinely connect with me and the other coaching candidates.
If you’re like I was and you know that you have more to give, you want to help people while creating a great career, and you know that there is a next level for you…
Then I invite you to complete the coaching candidate application on this site.
