Description

FULLY ACCREDITED LIFE COACHING DIPLOMA

Start up your own life coaching business, the complete life coach package - PART 2

This life coaching course is the second in the series of life coaching courses by Libby Seery, which are designed to help you train as a professional life coach and start your own life coaching business.

This course is fully accredited by a globally recognized CPD body, the Continuing Professional Development Standards Agency. 

Taking this life coaching course will give you the opportunity to gain a diploma signifying formal certification for 10 hours of CPD credit. 

Please note, accreditation is optional. It is by no means compulsory, or a prerequisite for taking the course. Degree requirements vary based on the position you pursue and the area in which you reside or work. Should you wish to opt for accreditation and the diploma, full details and directions will be given at the end of the course. 

What life coaching looks like is not something that is set in stone, but rather an area of constant development. 

The modern life coach, is not about accumulating various qualifications, in fact the modern life coach doesn’t need any qualifications.

What you do need is an array of skills, and this start up your own life coaching business course has been designed, to teach you all the skills you need, to be able to set up your own practice and have it running in a matter of weeks!

Whatever your level of coaching ability is at the moment, advanced, intermediate, or a complete beginner, this start up your own life coaching business course will provide you with everything you need, to start up your own coaching practice.

As long as you can help someone commit to the work necessary to make a change in their lives then you can do the job.

Life coaches are almost universally entrepreneurs. The burden is on them to find work and sustain a business based on providing life coaching services. This means that a successful life coach must not only master the art of life coaching itself, but must be an effective marketer, consultant and business manager.

Everything has been covered in this start up your own life coaching business course, and to help you achieve success in this amazing profession, this complete life coaching package, for the modern life coach entrepreneur is:

Fully accredited

Comes with certification

Comes with full support from the course creator, Libby Seery, 7 days a week

Support is continued from Libby during and after course completion, helping you establish yourself in this lucrative profession

This start up your own life coaching business course, has been designed with every aspect of coaching in mind, nothing has been left out. Taking this course will provide you with everything you need (even if you’re new to coaching) to start your own life coach practice, in as little as a few weeks. Previous clients have set up their own coaching businesses, with less than $50.

This is by far the simplest, cheapest and easiest time in history to run a life coaching business. In this modern internet-age you can do without a lot of the hassle and expenses of running a small business that were a definite hurdle in the past for an aspiring entrepreneur.

Established life coaches are gaining substantial financial and personal rewards for their hard work. In this internet age there is also a world of possibilities for life coaches who can develop a strong personal brand and create online content that will either draw in clients or become a source of revenue by themselves. Preferably both.

This means that a modern life coach also needs to understand internet marketing and the role of social media in growing your own life coaching business.

Generally traditional life coaching consists of complimentary consultations followed by regular support sessions. Some of these sessions are face-to-face, but the majority will be via phone, Skype or email.

However, someone looking to build a flourishing and sustainable life coaching business may also find themselves performing minor variations on the core process of life coaching on a one-on-one basis.

For example, you may provide short seminars to groups of people or have shorter one-on-one sessions, but have them with a greater number and variety of clients.

In this start up your own life coach business course, these are exactly the skills you will be learning. After you have completed this course you will be firmly on your way to establishing yourself as a life coach. Ready to get out in the world and make a difference to someone.

Some of the things I’ll teach you include:

What you do and do not need in order to run a life coaching business.

The various ways in which you can source business for your coaching practice, including Social Media, Networking and General Marketing

How to market your services to the outside world

I’ll teach you professional consultation skills. 

We’ll also cover all aspects of internet based life coaching, as this is a rapidly growing area of the modern life coach, and you’ll need the ability to communicate cheaply and easily with anyone anywhere in the world. This is not just limited to sending each other text-based messages, but also includes high-quality face to face video communication.

We’ll also be discussing work life balance in your career as an independent life coach.

This start up your own life coaching business course, also provides you with several coaching models, which are all tried and tested coaching methodologies.  All coaching models, come with examples of case studies, so you can see how they work in different scenarios.

Does My Client Need Counselling Rather Than Coaching?

Life coaching and psychotherapy, are two roles that many people often get confused with each other. There are many reasons for this, as the role of each often overlap with the other.

 In this lecture I'll clearly define the differences between the role of a life coach, and the role of a psychotherapist.

Fundamental Differences

Introduction To The Basics

I'll now cover the basic skills that every life coach should possess. These are neither hard to learn, or hard to put into practice. However, these skills take time to master and this comes down to experience and practice.

A Refresher On The Basics Skills of Coaching
02:49

This lecture is taken from my other life coaching course – Online Life Coach Course Training

I have added it in this covering the basics section, because it's such an important lecture, which covers the 5 aspects associated with listening. If you have taken  my previous life coaching course, you'll still be able to enjoy this lecture, as i've updated it and given it a new look and feel.

Life Coaching Basics: Listening

This lecture is also taken from my other life coaching course – Online Life Coach Course Training

I have added it in this covering the basics section, because it's such an important lecture, which covers an array of different groups of questions, that'll help you illicit information from your clients. If you have taken  my previous life coaching course, you'll still be able to enjoy this lecture, as i've updated it and given it a new look and feel.

Life Coaching Basics: Questioning

One of the most important skills a life coach can have, is the ability to see another person's perspective, especially if you don't personally agree with it.

The Clean Language Model - "Using Case Studies"
4 Lectures 12:24

The Clean Language Model, is one of the fundamental tools of coaching. Clear communication between coach and client, is essential when it comes to the coaching relationship.

The Clean Language Model
02:29

There are twelve clean language questions in total. Here we discuss the first two.

Clean Language Questions
01:06

Using three case studies, we're now going to apply the first of our clean language questions, so you can see how well formulated they are, and how well they work.

Clean Language Examples And Developing Questions

Following on from the six developing questions in clean language, we have three sequence and source questions, and the final three questions known as intention questions. We'll put these into practice, staying with our case studies from the previous lecture.

Using The SMART Model - "Coaching Mary"
10 Lectures 33:38

In this lecture, we're going to be applying the steps and principles of one of the most popular and effective life coaching models in existence today, the SMART Model.

Case Study: Using The SMART Model
04:40

Here, we're going to cover specific goal setting, the S in the SMART Model.

Specific Goal Setting
01:47

Using a case study as an example, I'll show you how important it is, to be specific, when it comes to setting goals.

Applying The Specifics To Mary
04:08

Here, we're going to cover measurable goal setting, the M in the SMART Model.

Measurable Goal Setting
01:42

Staying with our case study, we're now going to set some measurable goals for Mary.

Measuring Mary's Goals
03:28

The A in SMART stands for attainable, or achievable and refers to a goal, that in principle can be reached.

Attainable Goal Setting
03:35

In this lecture, we're going to look at our case study, Mary, and see if her goals are achievable or not!

Are Mary's Goals Achievable?
02:19

The R in SMART stands for relevant. This means that any goals that are set, need to be relevant and worthwhile to the client.

Relevant Goal Setting
05:33

The final letter T in the acronym SMART, stands for timely or time bound, meaning that goals need to have some sort of deadline to them.

Timely Goal Setting
03:29

We're now going to evaluate our case study, Mary, and see if Mary's goals are framed correctly, in a time-bound manner.

Using The TGROW Model - "Coaching Jenna"
11 Lectures 26:19

Now we're going to cover the TGROW Model, using another case study to demonstrate the principles of this model. The TGROW Model is an excellent system for goal directed areas, such as sports and business.

The TGROW Model In Practice
03:16

The T in TGROW stands for topic, and is a very important first step in the process. The topic phase is the first conversation you'll have with your client, and will give you an understanding of your clients needs.

Exploring The Topic
02:17

Now using some example questions, that fall under our heading, topic, we're going to apply these questions to our case study, Jenna, in order to elicit the information we need.

Coaching Jenna: Part 1
02:31

The G in TGROW stands for goal. So we can now, in cooperation with the client, set specific goals, whilst remembering to stick to the SMART criteria. 

Setting Specific Goals
01:51

Using the questions we've just covered in the previous lecture, we can now apply them to our case study, Jenna.

Coaching Jenna: Part 2
02:30

The R in the TGROW Model, stands for reality. This part of the process is about guiding your client through a reality check, in order to discover what it is, that's holding them back, or having a negative effect, preventing them achieving their overall goal.

Assessing Reality
03:05

Using the questions we've just covered in assessing reality, we can now apply them to our case study, Jenna.

Coaching Jenna: Part 3
02:00

The O in the TGROW Model, stands for options. This phase of TGROW is concerned with exploring the action plans, that are realised from this point onwards.

Exploring Options
03:20

Let's now help Jenna come up with her own options, and we can counter any negative statements she may make, by using "what if" questions.

Coaching Jenna: Part 4
01:38

The W in TGROW stands for way forward. This is the final phase of TGROW. The client now has a set of specific goals, has identified hurdles and laid out options. Now, is the right time, for the client to commit to one of the options they've outlined, and follow an action plan to make that option a reality.

Wrapping Up And The Way Forward
02:04

Let's now apply what we've learnt to Jenna's case.

Content Marketing
01:40

I'll teach you how to generate more revenue, than just from your coaching sessions. The more revenue streams you have, the more passive income you'll generate.

Good Old Fashioned Networking
01:43

This is the business part of the coaching game, where you must make agreements before the coaching begins.

Professional Consultation Skills
