Coaching Tools to Make Your Coaching Business Exactly What You Want It to Be

There are many steps that must be taken to create a successful online coaching business and my goal is to walk you through those steps so that you can get to work creating the coaching business, lifestyle, and income you desire.

Before you begin to implement tactics you must create a vision for your coaching business. You can have any type of coaching business you desire so give some time and thought to what you really want your business to look like, feel, and offer to your clients and yourself.

Think about whom you like to work with, what type of environment you want to create, how many hours a week do you want to work, what multiple streams of income you would like, how do you want your coaching business to operate and anything else that is important to you.

Decide what you want your coaching business to look like. When you own your business you can decide how you want to work. How many hours a week do you want to spend working in your business? Do you want to coach individuals or groups? Do you want income from other sources such as coaching products? What time of day do you want to be working? Do you want to work on weekends or in the evening?

Choose your target coaching niche. You must narrow your coaching down to a defined target coaching niche. When you have a tightly targeted niche it is much easier to determine what their problems, desires, and challenges are so you can appeal to their pain and desire for resolution to that pain. I know it seems like you will limit yourself if you narrow your target coaching niche but the reality is you will attract more clients because you will understand and speak directly to their needs.

Set your intention. You must set your intention for your business, income and lifestyle firmly in your mind in order to make it real. Your results will be far better if you have an intention set in your mind and you can visualize the results of that intention. Take time to visualize achieving your goals and feel the feelings you will feel when you have accomplished each step of the way before you actually reach the goal. This will help to manifest your desires and goals.

Take time before you get caught up in the day to day task to ensure that your business is what you want it to be. Set your intention for your business and work toward that goal.

10 Practical Tips to Help You Build a Successful Coaching Business.

Building a coaching business is tough. Coaching is a hard sell. The reality of building a coaching business (and any business) is often not what people envisaged when they decided to start out on their own.

I have grown my company, Southern Cross Coaching & Development, from zero income & a blank laptop working at home in 2006 to 23 coaches & consultants providing services to NSW Government & large corporate entities, with no cash other than my own organic growth. These are some lessons I’ve learnt along the way.

Why did you become a coach & start a coaching business?

When I asked that question to 60+ coaches when I presented at a recent ICF event, I got the usual plethora of €to help people€; €to make a difference€: €I’m passionate about coaching€; €fed up with the corporate world & wanted to do something I believe in€, €because coaching is amazing€; €I was fed up working for muppet managers€ or similar responses. In my experience, the extremely large majority of coaches will say something similar.

In reality, many coaches struggle to make enough even to pay the bills, let alone earn a decent living. According to the ICF 2012 Global Coaching Study, the median annual coach’s income in Oceania is US$36,700. Many coaches end up having to supplement their income – or worse, go back & work for another muppet manager!

First: why did I start a coaching business? All of the above, of course – that goes almost without saying. Especially the muppet manager bit, I’ve had far too many of those (I hope they’re reading this!).

However, my primary reason? To make money. My strongest motivator is my need to make sure my business pays me an income & security to support my family, our lifestyle & our future (I have a 3 -year old & a 15-month old). US$36,700 will not do that.

1. Think primarily like a business, not a coach.

If you don’t have the attitude that you are in business to make money, it is extremely unlikely to happen. You know this as a coach – if you don’t have that as a goal, how can you achieve it?

Look at the numbers. To earn $100,000 p.a. give or take you need to earn approx $133,000 to cover your wages & business expenses. That equates to income of $3,023/week (44 working weeks: 4 weeks holidays, 2 weeks over Christmas, a week of Public Holidays, a week sick/miscellaneous, etc. And that’s being conservative!

Translate that to hours worked. It equals: $75.57/hour every hour for coaching 40 hours/week = $151.14/hour for coaching 20 hours = $302.27 for 10 hours = $604.55/hour for 5 hours = $453.41/hour for 7.5 hours/week. 7.5 hours per week? Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

However, comma. How often does your diary have 7 lovely hours of coaching in one day? Not very often!

A more realistic business week involves coaching spread over the week, hours of travel time, preparation for & debrief from coaching, emails, proposal writing, marketing & sales meetings, invoicing, networking functions, phone calls, more emails, sorting IT issues, time on hold to your phone/internet provider, etc. Most people forget these entire ancillary – but absolutely business essential – tasks.

So, you’re now likely questioning: €how the hell am I supposed to make money if that’s the reality?€

2. Time Management – Get focussed.

Do it religiously & be utterly RUTHLESS. Set up processes. Outsource. Your time is literally your money. Every hour is potentially worth $453.41+ – if you waste 15 minutes, you are losing $113.35! Would you throw away $113.35? Learning time management skills was one of the most valuable things I did.

Ask yourself: €is this time I’m spending worth $453.41/hour?€ I used to spend 5+ hours a month doing my books/BAS, etc. My bookkeeper does it in 5 hours a quarter. That’s 10 hours per quarter I have back to do more important things.

3. Charge for your time. Charge what you are worth.

Charge what you need to make the money you want to make (within what the market will bear, of course!). If you charge $200/hour, & do two free sessions, how much money will you make? Not enough is likely to be the answer!

If you coach 7.5 hours a week & need to make $100k in your pocket, you need to charge no less than $453.41/hour. Your time is money. Every minute is precious: charge for it whenever you can.

4. Believe in what you do.

You are a professional. You have a right to be there. Believe that you deserve to get paid a decent wage for it! If you don’t believe all of that, why would a client?

We all start somewhere – I started off coaching for free, then charging $50/hour, then built it up from there to pay myself $92,000 in my first year. If I’d believed more early on, I’d have paid myself a lot more. Of course, confidence can take time to build – the important thing is you make sure you’re focussed on building it.

5. The €S Word’.

It often invokes fear & strikes dread into the hearts of many idealistic coaches desperate to €make a difference€. I’m talking SALES. Selling.

Like it or not, even if you have exceptionally well-established networks and the most amazing website on the planet, you will still have to sell – and sell yourself. You are a salesperson first & a coach second. Accept it. If you can’t sell yourself, you won’t get to do much coaching.

Sales is 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration. There is no single magic formula. There are all sorts of methodologies you can learn of course, but none of them are effective unless you get off your backside & put in the hard yakka.

We’re in the trust business. No matter how hard it is, make those uncomfortable follow up phone calls, put some shoe leather on the road & get your face in front of people. Then ask for the business. Follow up – people are busy, they often need a nudge. If you get knocked down, get back up again! It’s not personal, it’s just business. You expect your clients to do all of this, right? Take some of your own medicine.

6. Use your coaching skills to sell.

Your coaching skills are extremely powerful sales tools. Yes, really. If more sales people were trained as coaches, they’d be a lot more successful. Use your coaching skills to listen & delve into what people need. That’s really the core of sales.

However, you still have to ask for the business. And you still have to get off your butt & get out & meet people in the first place. There are no short cuts for that: €Nike it€ – just do it!

7. Don’t waste your time trying to teach people how fantastic coaching is.

If you have to teach people what coaching is, you’re usually wasting your [very valuable] time. Walk away. It took me quite a while to work that out, but when I did it was a real relief & my business grew more. 2 hours spent teaching someone about coaching, is potentially $906 lost. Sell to people who know what coaching can do.

8. Lose the warm, fluffy coaching language.

Use the client’s professional business language, not coaching speak, especially with organisational & business clients. Challenge thinking, yes! But talking about €spiritual journeys’ for example, although you may be very right the CEO needs to go on one, is rarely going to get you the gig to coach their hard-nosed CFO! Talk for success. And dress for success.

9. You are a not selling coaching.

You are not selling that you are a coach – the fact that you’re a coach is a given. You are selling a solution, and you are selling your experience & expertise. That’s what I’ve found clients pay for.

You may have left the e.g. IT industry to find a new path, and yes, you may be able to coach in any industry, but the reality is clients want – and pay for your IT industry expertise, so you’re probably best placed to at least start coaching in it & then branch out from there.

10. Be flexible & adapt your coaching style.

How To Find An ‘A’ Class Business Coach

If you’re business or team is stuck in a rut and no matter what you’ve tried to help get to the next level, nothing has worked, then business coaching is what you need. Not only should it be the first thing that comes to mind when this happens, it gets proven and lasting results because of it’s dynamic and educational approach.

As companies became more focused on survival and expansion, senior executives had less time to develop and mentor new managers themselves, so an external source was sought, and a business coach was the quick and logical solution.

Once the idea of using a business coach caught on, the issue then became one of choosing the right one. The relationship between a coach and the client is too important to be left to chance.

The manager or executive being mentored through business coaching will make decisions affecting the business based on the ideas developed through this relationship, so it is vital that the match between the coach and the organization is a sound one.

Here are some important areas to be aware of when considering which coaching company is right for your business:

Cost is obviously an important issue, but this needs to be measured against the results expected. The profitability and in some cases, survival, of the business may depend on it.

The business coach selected should be capable of either reviewing and helping to revise any existing business and marketing plans, or if there are none in place, assist the business in the development of these plans.

The coach should provide support and guidance through a mentoring relationship with the client. The reason why coaching works so effectively in business is because the relationship must be built on trust, respect and transparency. This negates power plays or unproductive behavior.

Assisting in the development of ideas and suggesting resources should also be part of a good business coaching program, so you should ensure that the business coaching company has this expertise

When engaging new employees, the proven techniques of short listing, interviewing and checking references with previous employers usually results in the right person for the job.

Engaging a business coach should follow the same rigorous process, and word-of-mouth references are one of the most reliable ways to check if claims of past successes are genuine.

When a company engages a business coaching organization, they are tapping into the collective experience and wisdom of a network of people with a wide range of management, financial and inter-personal skills.

Over time, the relationship that develops between a well-matched coach and the client can provide the innovation, direction and focus towards the future that is often difficult to develop during the day-to-day grind of operational management.

A good business coaching specialist doesn’t get involved in the nitty-gritty issues, and therein lies their strength. They are good strategists that help the business take a wider view of the market and their place in it. In this rapidly-changing world, these are skills that repay their outlay tenfold.

You don’t have to structure your day down to the minute. Basically, you need to get into the habit of reading your e-mails, doing websites, talking to clients at specific times during the day. Each project that you do should also be done at specific times. It is easy to train your brain in the same way that you have trained your body to, say, exercise.
