    [Coaching Call] Defining Your Coaching Practice with Courtney Watson

    [Coaching Call] Defining Your Coaching Practice with Courtney Watson

    If you’ve been wondering about making the transition from therapy into coaching or starting a new group coaching program, this episode is for you.
    For today’s coaching call, I’m so excited to introduce you to Courtney Watson, a counselor based on the West Coast with quite a bit of experience providing trauma therapy.
    Courtney is interested in creating a group coaching program and on this call we cover quite a lot of ground from whether you need to start with one-on-one coaching, how to differentiate between your therapy and coaching clients, what goes into starting a group program, what you can do to vet potential members for your program, and more.
    I’m so grateful to Courtney for sharing what she’s been pondering and giving us a look behind the curtain as she develops her first group coaching program. So much of what Courtney shared reflects what I’ve heard from my clients, members, and students and I think you'll get a lot out of today's coaching call.

    How to Conduct a Mid-Year Review

    How to Conduct a Mid-Year Review

    As we quickly approach the middle of the year, I have to take a moment to wrap my head around the fact that we’ve already completed five months in the year. It feels like just yesterday that I was celebrating the new year and I was getting all of my ducks in a row for 2021.
    Even though it’s gone by so quickly, it’s extraordinary what we’ve accomplished in our businesses with everything that's going on in our world. That’s why I wanted to take this episode to talk about a topic I love - planning and preparing for your business success - and specifically conducting a mid-year review.
    I'm going to walk you through the process I use that’s been very helpful for me and my clients and I want you to make it your own. Feel free to use this information as inspiration, to follow it to the letter, or anything between, and spend a little time reflecting on the last six months, and what you want the next six months to look like.

    Transparency in Coaching

    Transparency in Coaching

    How much of your life should your clients have access to? Where are your boundaries?
    Transparency and self-disclosure are important topics for us as coaches. It can be tricky to figure out what’s appropriate because there are serious implications whether we share too much or don’t share enough.
    As a coach, your level of transparency with your clients is a very personal decision and there’s no one right answer. Today I’m sharing a series of questions to help you figure out what feels right for you, your clients, and your audience through the lenses of marketing and service delivery.

    [Coaching Call] Connecting Your Voice and Your Heart with Lisa DeLuca

    [Coaching Call] Connecting Your Voice and Your Heart with Lisa DeLuca

    Coaching calls are a pretty special part of the podcast because they give me an opportunity to connect one-on-one with a listener and provide some targeted coaching to serve them in their business and in their life.
    For today’s coaching call, I’m honored to introduce Lisa DeLuca, a talented therapist who has wanted to transition into the coaching profession for years. For a long time, Lisa has had a big vision of how she wants her business to grow. She's held on to those plans for years but there have also been some external and internal obstacles that have emerged along the way, both of which we explore in this call.
    Lisa came to this session with such a willingness to go deep and be vulnerable and by the end, both she and I were moved by the journey. This was such a powerful coaching call and I can’t wait to see what Lisa creates next.

Getting Started

I am so grateful to have come upon Lee and her work, this podcast included, during the formative stage of getting my coaching business started after practicing as a licensed psychotherapist. The content, tools, and interviews (coaching calls) have been so valuable in providing me with guidance and inspiration for tapping into my strengths and creativity to build the business I envision.
