    I'm feeling a bit ill. Do I cancel or push through? Episode 56

    I'm feeling a bit ill. Do I cancel or push through? Episode 56

    Most coaches commit to showing up for their clients. Some do so much so that they’re coaching clients even when they’re really quite ill or would much rather hide under a blanket for one reason or another. What’s your threshold for cancelling a coaching session? How ill do you need to get to say “I can’t make it today”. What might the fallout be? And how might we make those decisions? Due to present circumstances, this and more is what our resident coaches Nicki, Siawash and Yannick discuss in today’s episode.

    Does niching kill diversity in my client base? Episode 55

    Does niching kill diversity in my client base? Episode 55

    We learn and grow so much when we’re coaching clients who are very different to us. Similarly, clients benefit a lot when they work with a coach who is different to them. We probably all appreciate that diversity leads to more innovation, yet most experts will tell us to speak to a very specific kind of person when marketing our coaching businesses, with the inevitable effect that we’re, by definition, reducing diversity in our clientele. Or is it? 
    Today’s question was sparked during a recent episode on another podcast (Animas's Coaching Uncaged Season 13 Episode 4 with Coaching Diversity Institute Founder Towanna Burrous) and our resident coaches Yannick, Nicki and Siawash decided to take the topic up and going a little deeper on the subject matter.

    Virtual or blurred backgrounds - What are you hiding? Episode 54

    Virtual or blurred backgrounds - What are you hiding? Episode 54

    On some level I always think “what are you hiding?” when I see someone with a blurred or virtual background. Imagine that’s what your client thinks when they first meet you? Does it inspire trust? Not really. On the other hand there are many reasons why a coach may choose not to reveal what’s happening behind them. Same goes for clients, and even if we can see their full frame clearly, we have no idea what’s happening outside of this frame, and it’s really worth getting curious about that. So in this episode of Talking about Coaching our resident coaching Yannick, Nicki and Siawash discuss if, when and how it may or may not be helpful to curate the visual coaching experience - with some big reveals!

    Prices on your website: Do or don’t? Episode 53

    Prices on your website: Do or don’t? Episode 53

    It’s one of the most regular topics that we see discussed: Is it going to help me to have my coaching fees on my website, or will it scare potential clients off? It seems like you can’t win either way: If the price is too low, they might think I’m not a good coach. If they’re too high, they’re not reaching out in the first place even though they probably would have invested once they get a sense for how powerful these conversations are. There are many good arguments for and against telling people how much you charge for your coaching service and in this episode our resident coaches Yannick, Siawash and Nicki are discussing the ins and outs.

    Do I need coaching supervision? Episode 52

    Do I need coaching supervision? Episode 52

    Nobody needs a supervisor (with a good few notable exceptions perhaps) - every coach should want one, is the underlying message of today’s episode of Talking about Coaching. “I want every coach I know to listen to this conversation” Siawash concluded toward the end of this episode, Yannick got super excited and dove in deep on what supervision is, why it’s important and how broad the range is of what supervision can mean in practice, and Nicki shared her experience of being supervised as a relatively new coach and how she was able to secure low-cost supervision to support her practice. Come join us for a conversation about the pinnacle of reflective practice and why supervision will likely 10x your coaching revenue. 


    If you’d like to work with a coaching supervisor, there are many ways to find one. Here are a few options: 
    Reach out to your training providerhttps://directory.iccs.co/www.coachfederation.org.uk/professional-development/supervision/www.associationofcoachingsupervisors.com/supervisors/searchwww.trustedcoachdirectory.com/coaching-supervision/www.coachingsupervisionacademy.com/csa-accredited-supervisors/Google „find a coaching supervisor“Ask Yannick to connect you with a supervisor-in-training from the International Centre for Coaching Supervision (https://iccs.co/) or contact them directly.

    Always trust your intuition in coaching. Is that true? Episode 51

    Always trust your intuition in coaching. Is that true? Episode 51

    You will have heard many coaches rave about the importance of listening to your gut, your intuition, your hunches about what to do when you’re coaching, which question to ask, how to navigate your session, etc. Some coaches go as far to argue that you should always trust your intuition, so in this episode of Talking about Coaching our resident coaches Nicki, Siawash and Yannick are taking a good look at when and how following our instincts is or isn’t a good idea. We draw on the literature, professional poker, action sports and our experience to discuss this important question.
