Become a Certified Group Life Coach!

This course provides training for life coaches who want to grow their business through offering life coaching groups.

Unfortunately, most life coaches end up leaving the field. Not because they’re not talented, but because they’re not making enough money. They burn out constantly stressing over how to get enough paying clients and how to juggle their schedule.

Adding group coaching to our coaching business is hands down one of the most important things we’ve done to create success.

We designed this program to teach you everything you need to know to create your very own group coaching program.

  • How to use the same process you use with your individual clients to coach an entire group of your ideal clients.
  • How to effectively manage your group, including all of the administrative details, logistics, and technology.
  • How to structure your group, what content to include, what to charge, and how to prosper as a group coach.
  • How to create marketing campaigns THAT FILL YOUR GROUPS using email autoresponder sequences, webinars, opt-in pages and sales pages.
  • How to feel confident facilitating a group by learning advanced group facilitation techniques and communication strategies.

More about the instructors:

Joeel A. Rivera, MEd: From an early age, Joeel faced adversity, including failing his first year of college and losing his brother to a car accident at the age of 19. This experience transformed his life and instilled a deep sense of purpose by inspiring him to give his brother Daniel's name a meaning by helping others find their true path. He returned to college, earning a Master's Degree in Counseling, and he is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D. in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. In almost a decade, Joeel has reached over ten thousand people from different parts of the world as an educator, entrepreneur, speaker, curriculum developer, and consultant. His clients have included school systems, the juvenile justice system, non-profits, the penitentiary system, medical centers, legal firms, individuals and small businesses.

Natalie Rivera is passionate about empowering others to live authentically and embrace their inner callings. After a decade of living a life that wasn't hers and developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Natalie let go of everything and completely transformed. Through her journey to healing she rediscovered her true self and greater purpose—to be an entrepreneur and inspire others to transform their lives. Natalie “retired" from the rat race at 24, put herself through school as a freelance designer, and created a non-profit teen center. She is also the Publisher of Transformation Magazine.
