A slightly different format for today's issue due to a time sensitive
announcement about the launch of the
Graduate School of
Coaching in two weeks. This is a big development in the
coaching world, and I wanted you to know about it.
First, if you or someone you know is considering
advanced coach training from a TeleClass based school,
I invite you to read carefully the message below from Thomas Leonard.
In the announcement, he describes in detail the web based training and
client resources that make
up the GSC. Quite a breathtaking body of work, actually. The reason I
bring this to your attention is, until May 1, 2002,
there is an early bird tuition of $895 in effect. On May 1, 2002, the
tuition doubles to $1795, making the savings $895 per person.
Hey, we'll call this the $895 Today's Coach issue, because it saved you
that much! <g>
And...also in this issue is a very interesting audio link, of a live
TeleClass that was held last month for GSC members. This 45 minute
audio session is part of a growing body of GSC material, described in
detail below. I hope you enjoy the clip of Thomas
leading a discussion on the topic of "Empowering
Your Clients to Identify their Needs" and that you find the
advanced coaching concepts in it useful to you sometime this week.
Of special interest may be the Corporate Coach and Mentor Coach Training
that Thomas explains further below as well. Exciting times!
Here's the audio link. (You'll need
a copy of the free RealPlayer to listen.)

Coach Training MicroModule
Empowering Your Clients to Identify their (soft) Needs
March 5, 2002 - 5:00 p.m. EST
Thomas Leonard, Session Leader
All the best,
Kind words from
your coaching colleagues...
Thomas' finger is firmly on the pulse!
GSC is a sensational value. I am a student in another school and
choose to invest in GSC in addition to my other program. Thomas'
materials are all outstanding. I love the collaborative model of
GSC and feel Thomas has his finger firmly on the pulse of new
and experienced coaches and the coaching profession. If GSC had
been launched when I choose my original Coach Training it would
have been my only choice. The resources alone are well worth the
price. The 15 Coaching Competencies are right on target and the
training in the development of the competencies will produce
outstanding coaches. As a trainer, educator (my first 25 years),
and Coach I highly recommend GSC. You cannot lose!

Personal & Professional Coach
I want my coach training to be leading
I joined the GSC because after I graduated from
another school, I wanted to make sure that my coach training was
still leading edge. I was a founding member of CoachVille and I
highly value the constant tweaking of programs and learning. I
know the GSC will continue to deliver this. I have previously
been the recipient of great coaching insight, I knew that the
graduate school would continue this great insight, so it made
sense to join especially in view of a price increase.
My clients and my practice
As a Business Results Coach, I joined the Graduate
School of Coaching (at the 'early adopter' rate of $895) because
I have already experienced the high quality of coaching
materials and support as a CoachVille member, buddy coach and a
study group host. The flexibility and variety of technology
supported learning and "doing" options make sense to me. My
clients and my practice will benefit from my opportunity to use
and contribute to the development of advanced coaching materials
(skill and competency modules, Business and Corporate
situational training, best practices database and quick score
tools). The invitation to have fresh content, advanced
curriculum, intellectual stimulation and better coaching fit my
commitment to be the best possible coach I can be and my passion
for learning. While it will take months to achieve the full
Certified Coach and Certified Mentor Coach designations, I know
I will be able to immediately apply the learnings with clients
and increase the value of my practice.
I know I'll get a huge return on my
About 5 years ago, I stumbled across Thomas Leonard's
website. Part of that site was a single web page that listed all
the projects he was developing at that time-about 100 of them. I
was tired just reading through all his ideas, but also
fascinated. How could one person generate so much interesting
information? After years of watching the development of his
programs and benefiting from his generous sharing of methods and
experience, I'm still amazed at his ability to generate
cutting-edge, provocative, and highly marketable information.
Joining the GSC was really a no-brainer. Based on past
experience I know I'll get a huge return on my investment. Note:
I'm not a Thomas Leonard ""groupie."" I haven't been trained by
Coach U. And I don't agree with everything he does or says. But
the man is a coaching and marketing genius. His ability to offer
loads of useful coach training and information at bargain prices
is what makes participating in the GSC a no-brainer--especially
at the current pre-launch price.

Dear Today's Coach Subscriber:

increase. After all, you have 5 years to take the 50 hours of
