FANTASTIC FREE FORMS:
Below are all the forms that I use for coaching. Feel free to download them and make them your own.
Coaching Welcome Letter – Introduce yourself to your client. Even though you will be “Designing the Alliance” with them later, this helps to establish your side of it more quickly.
Agreement Contract – A simple word document listing all the coaching agreements. This helps the client get really clear about what is expected of them and what they can expect.
Primary Focus Intake Questionnaire – This does not replace the intake session, but rather helps stir up the client’s thinking and how they look at themselves and their lives.
Intake Questions – The Intake session is really about “Designing the Alliance” and “Creating the Relationship”. Everything that you do is all about setting the groundwork of your coaching relationship. Use this as a guideline, but feel free to “Dance in the Moment”.
Client Profile Information – Always good to have all the information on your client in case you need to contact them.
Release Authorization – This gives you permission to log hours and use their name for credentialing purposes.
Excel template for logging hours – simple excel spreadsheet to track of your coaching hours and payments.
Client Completion Form – When it’s time to let a client go, how do you do it while still holding them powerfully? This questionnaire helps them explore their coaching experience as well as what’s next.[/toggle]
You Can’t Teach a Kid to Ride A Bike in a Seminar
by David Sandler
Don’t let the super-long title fool you. This is an indispensable resource for any coach that wants to have a successful practice. In order to coach, you need clients, and in order to get clients, you need to learn how to sell. The great news is that with your coach training, you already have all you need to sell powerfully.
This book breaks it down to simple steps that anyone can adapt and learn. In no time, you’ll be selling your coaching and building your practice.
Taming Your Gremlin
by Richard Carlson
Simply put, every single action and reaction we make is either pulling us towards our Values, or towards our fears. Call it what you will, “the Saboteur” “the Critic” “the gremlin” “the Monkey Mind” “he who runs the show when you are not present,” this book breaks it down in simple, easy to digest, ways to recognize and work with this “voice” that keeps us from shining brilliantly.
Leadership and Self-Deception
by the Arbinger Institute
Yes, it’s required reading for many coaches and for the CTI leadership program. But it’s also an easy to read story, packed with incredible learning. You’ll instantly see your life in a whole new way and be able to take yourself “out of the box.” Not only will this book impact your life, but provide you with a powerful focus to take to your clients.
Strengths Finder 2.0
by Tom Rath
Get this book. Use the link and password provided to take the quiz. Have your top five strengths revealed. Why? Because once you know your strengths, then you can build upon them. You can begin to meld them into your coaching. They can help clarify what direction to take your coaching, in your marketing, in declaring your niche, in all sorts of things.
Not only that, but it’s really exciting and cool to have that part of yourself revealed and affirmed. (HINT: Buy two, cause you’re going to want to send one to your clients for sure.)
Think and Grow Rich
by Napoleon Hill
The Grand-daddy of creating your own success. Before “The Secret”, before “The Aladdin Factor” before all those “You are what you think about” and “You create your future” programs and gurus, there was this book. Back in 1938, the secret to success and wealth was revealed, and it’s the exact same material that’s just repackaged with pretty bells and whistles. This is where it all starts.
Multiple Streams of Coaching Income
by Andrea J. Lee
I get the same questions all the time. “How do I start marketing myself?” “What can I do?” “Do I have to have a newsletter or blog?” “I’m not sure how to start.” “Why is everyone doing workshops? Do they really help?” And much more.
I tell them to get this book.
If you’ve got any of these questions or more about building your business, GET THIS BOOK. It will open up a whole new world of possibilities for you.
Yeah. the same guy who wrote the book, created one of the most powerful Sales training centers in the world. If you have any apprehension towards SELLING, get this program. It’s the more detailed, more expansive, more complete version of the book to your left. By the end of this 6 disc set, you will have powerful tools to help you SELL your coaching and build your client base, easily and effectively.
Larry tells it straight, sometimes things you don’t want to hear, but you need to hear, and gets you focused and in action. He’s all about clearing away the junk and making big changes. Don’t order this unless you want to be inspired to move now!
It’s said that the answers are on a different level than what got you stuck. In order to get to that next level, you need to think differently, believe differently, and act differently. And wouldn’t it be great if all your answers were easy to get? Marshall shows you how to reach that next level with ease, so you can make big changes.
It’s simple. The coaching industry is growing exponentially every day, and it’s more challenging to stand out from the masses. However, what do Coke, Disney, and Oprah all have in common? That’s right, they’re not just a product or a name, they are a BRAND. And when you hear them mentioned, you know exactly what to expect. (Like BeDo coaching, right?)
Fine. You don’t have the time to read. It’s gets tiring. It’s challenging to remember all those words. Well, how about this? Get the audio version and have it read to you. If you resonate with learning by listening, these words will land in a deeper part of you, and before you know it, you’ll be on your way to creating your success. Trust me, this stuff works powerfully. Don’t get this book until you’re really ready to make big changes and take on your life in a whole new way.
What if you had a mentor who told you how to create your own success? What if you had someone to tell you where you were going wrong, or what you were missing? What if you had a guide to keep you focused on your path to getting the life that you truly desire? And what if it was contained within this program. Chock full of insights and directions to build your own success as well as your clients’.
