I’ve been really excited about a new approach I am taking in my coaching program for next year. As a teacher of almost 30 years, I am super committed to the actual education of my students – what people really get out of my programs. What I’ve seen over the years is that people are at such different stages in their businesses, plus they have very different levels of engagement, different skill sets, and different levels of urgency. This creates enormous challenge for a teacher, who in a particular program is trying to meet students where they are at and take them through their next steps. The starting points are different, the next steps are different, and the pacing is different. That leads to a lot of diversity.
So for next year, I’ve created a program that is customized for every client – and it’s a really exciting and challenging task. Now that I have enough training materials (years worth) already created, I am focusing on customization and real coaching for each client, rather than on creating more and more training materials. This whole approach is requiring me to think in new ways about how to create our membership site, how to orient and set up clients, how to set up our retreat – all of it! I loved being stretched in this way, though sometimes I ask myself: “why do you always have to create something new and different?” But I know, that’s just my nature!
We are finally getting plenty of rain here in California – and in fact tomorrow we are due for a HUGE storm. So wish us luck through the high winds and inches of rain coming our way tomorrow. And we are going to be getting some of what other places have been experiencing the last few years!
