    147. Coaching moms on parenting kids who are not like you interview with Meg Kuhnle

    147. Coaching moms on parenting kids who are not like you interview with Meg Kuhnle

    Coaching Moms to navigate parenting when your kid is not like you is Meg's SpecialtyParenting isn't a one-size-fits-all journey. Each child is unique, and often, parents find themselves navigating the challenge of parenting a child who is nothing like them. Coaching for moms to navigate this territory and address these differences is an invaluable option.
    Building a Safe Community for your coaching clientsMeg is one of Molly's coaching clients and is so grateful for the supportive community Molly has created. Meg brings this community, which provides a "soft landing" where individuals can grow without external pressures, into her coaching for moms. It is important to create a safe space where clients feel relaxed and confident so that they can have true growth.
    Understanding Parenting ChallengesThere are specific challenges moms face when their children are very different from them. There are common worries among moms, such as maintaining a good relationship and having enough skills to support their children effectively. Moms care so much for their kids and want the best for them, often making them feel pressured to "fix" their kids in the interest of their well-being.
    Embracing Acceptance and GentlenessMeg advocates for a gentle approach, encouraging moms to accept their feelings and gain a better understanding of why they feel certain ways about certain behaviors from their children. When moms can accept how they are feeling and create space to reflect on the situation, it can significantly reduce the impulse to control or change their children's actions.
    The Impact of SupportWhen Moms are able to slow down and reflect on their more challenging interactions with their children, they may realize different pressures or expectations they are putting on their children to fit a certain mold. By stepping back and allowing their children to be themselves, moms can foster a more supportive and encouraging environment, leading to a stronger parent-child relationship.
    Coaching Moms: Tapping Into CalmnessIn her coaching practice, Meg offers free weekly tapping sessions for moms. These 15-minute sessions aim to help moms relax and take the edge off, especially during the summer when parenting can be particularly challenging. Sign up for this wonderful opportunity here.
    More strategies for supporting Moms
    Join Meg's CommunityMeg is a mom of 3 kids within 4 years, wife, certified life coach, fitness enthusiast, and is passionate about helping other moms show up as the parent & woman they want to be. She focuses on helping moms navigate the unique journeys of all children, no matter their abilities or needs.
    Meg invites listeners to a one-on-one starting point session, where she helps moms better understand their situation and develop a plan for improving their relationship with their children. She emphasizes the value of coaching and the profound impact it can have not just on the moms but on their entire family.

    Supercharge your coaching skills with Molly Claire

    Supercharge your coaching skills with Molly Claire

    Supercharge Your Coaching SkillsTo advance your coaching skills and truly excel as a coach, you must view and understand your clients as whole people. Integrating cognitive, emotional, and nervous system awareness methods allows you to adjust your approach fluidly based on your clients' needs. This adaptability ensures smoother sessions and enables you to guide clients intuitively and effectively.
    Why Advanced Coaching Skills MatterAs coaches, we are passionate about providing exceptional experiences for our clients. For those dedicated to transformational change, safety, and ethics, enhancing your coaching skills is paramount. This workshop series is designed for you.
    The Essentials of Advanced Coaching Skills: 4 Fundamentals discussed in the IntensiveAdvanced Cognitive CoachingMy foundational training was through the Life Coach School, where I mastered the cognitive coaching model. Cognitive approaches are incredibly effective yet not holistic. My experience with cognitive coaching showed that it could only go so far. Cognitive coaching is excellent for mindset work, but the emotional and physical aspects that also affect our clients need to be addressed.
    Emotion-Focused ModalitiesEmotions and past traumas are stored in the body, affecting our clients deeply. Solely relying on cognitive approaches might not only be ineffective but detrimental. Embracing emotion-focused modalities ensures that we address these emotional blocks. Combining cognitive strategies with emotion-focused ones can supercharge your ability to help clients create lasting change.
    Understanding the Nervous SystemNervous system awareness is critical for advancing your coaching skills. Your clients might experience fight-or-flight responses in coaching sessions or in their daily lives. Knowing how to help your clients understand and manage their nervous systems can vastly improve the effectiveness of your coaching. If a client continually has a stress response in specific situations, your interventions must address this underlying activation to facilitate true change.
    Action-Focused StrategiesFinally, many coaching programs emphasize action plans. While structured actions are beneficial, they often fail when clients have underlying emotional blocks or conflicting beliefs. A comprehensive understanding of your client's emotional states and beliefs allows you to tailor action plans that align with their unique situation, removing friction and fostering real progress.

    SEO Strategies for marketing your business without social media with Robyn Graham

    SEO Strategies for marketing your business without social media with Robyn Graham

    The Myth of Social Media as an necessityA common misconception is that businesses must be active on social media to succeed. Robyn shared that many multi-million dollar businesses thrive without a robust social media presence, focusing instead on building a strong foundation. Building a solid foundation is invaluable to your business success.
    Building a Solid Foundation using SEO StrategiesA solid business foundation begins with a personal brand. By being distinct and clear about who you are and the results you can deliver, you set yourself up for sustainable business success.
    A business foundation needs
    an optimized websitean engaged email list
    Unlike what you post on social media platforms, you have complete control over these elements, which are up to the platform's discretion.
     
    Clarity and Client ConnectionWhen you want to attract your ideal or soulmate clients, you must be extremely clear on what you provide and who you are there to help. Robyn describes these as soulmate clients - clients with whom you share a deep and meaningful connection, leading to better results and long-term relationships. Unlike the superficial connections often formed on social media, soulmate clients are those who truly understand your value and are aligned with your mission.
    Authenticity and DifferentiationBeing on social media can often lead to comparison and even trying to mimic others' successful strategies. You must avoid mimicking others to be authentic and connect with your soulmate clients. Your authenticity will attract your soulmate clients and differentiate you from others in your field. It also helps eliminate the feelings of doubt and imposter syndrome that often come from comparing oneself to others on social media.
    Trust and Mutual RespectIn discussing client relationships, Robyn emphasized the significance of mutual trust and respect. It's not enough for clients to trust you; you must also trust them to take your advice and implement your strategies. This mutual respect fosters a collaborative environment where you and your clients can thrive.
    SEO Strategies: A Tip from RobynEnsure that you have a photograph of yourself on your homepage, on your About page, and sprinkled throughout your website. On those images, include alt text. Alt text is for nonsighted people to understand what is on an image, and it is search engine optimized. You can include your name, title, and whoever is in your niche. Add those keywords and key phrases for your images because that will help Google see who you are, what you do, and how you do it, and then show you to more people.
    About Robyn Dr. Robyn Graham is the founder and owner of Robyn Graham, LLC, and the creator of the Purpose to Results™- Success without Social Method. With an emphasis on mindset, strategy, and action, she helps small business owners and entrepreneurs, especially those in the health and wellness industry, health coaches, life coaches, and creatives, start and grow sustainable businesses and have a meaningful impact without being chained to social media.

    Adding to your Coaching Toolbox is Essential: An Interview with Brenda Lomeli

    Adding to your Coaching Toolbox is Essential: An Interview with Brenda Lomeli

    If you are a coach committed to helping your clients, you must also be committed to personal growth. As you continue to grow, you learn new skills and modalities to add to your coaching toolbox, which will benefit you and your clients.
    How can you add to your coaching toolbox?Building trust with your clients and adding your uniqueness to their coaching experience is why they came to see you. Don't overlook your personal gifts and how impactful those are to your soulmate clients.
    Expanding and shifting your skillsets to best serve your clientsPart of adding to your coaching toolbox and being an impactful coach is being in tune with your client's needs. Checking in with your clients and looking for what needs to be addressed so you can bridge that gap and meet their needs is invaluable to your effectiveness as a coach. You are in this field because you believe in what you do, and you not only care about your clients but are devoted to their success.
    Remember to stay in tune with your clients, look for what is needed, and then find a way to bridge that gap, whether that means searching for a new modality or shifting your perspective and adding to what is already in place.
    Teach what you believe in and have experienced.One of the things Brenda deeply believes in is to teach what you know. When working with clients, she looks at them and her own journey and growth and asks herself, How can I learn and grow to find the right tool if I do not have the tools to support this particular client?
    Part of delivering the best service for your clients is your investment in their personal growth and being committed to growing so that you can help find the right tools to support them along their journey.
    Adding self-care tools to your coaching toolboxMost entrepreneurs have learned to work hard and hustle to get their businesses off the ground. However, it is just as important to learn self-care habits to prevent overexhaustion or burnout. Working hard is wonderful, but not when you do it at your own expense.
    Learning to listen to your body and when you need rest and honoring that is an invaluable skill. There is always a list of one million things that need to be done—that list never ends—but it does not all need to be fixed today. Honor when you need to rest, and you, too, just might find that you are able to have your best thinking and coaching once you are rested.
    Instead of asking, have I worked hard enough to rest? Ask, have I rested enough to work hard? Apply the tools you offer to clients to yourself first, and make sure you take time to rest.
