Would you like to stop trying too hard with clients, being frustrated by them, wishing they would move faster, be more self generating or put into action what they are learning?

If so, I hope today's issue will help.

My best to you,

Class #2406.  How To Enjoy Your Client Immensely
 
How To Enjoy Your Client Immensely
Yes, we know this sounds a bit 'bland,' and rightfully you may be wondering what a training topic like this is doing in the GSC.  And, it's one of the most powerful of the 15 Coaching Proficiencies. Why?  Because to get to this level of collaborative relationship with your client, yet still have an edge and be effective with them, calls for a fairly high level skill set and awareness level.  That's all we're going to say at this point but if you find yourself trying too hard with clients, being frustrated by them, wishing they would move faster, be more self generating or put into action what they are learning, then this material will prove beneficial.

What is the purpose of the Learning Guide for this class?
To broaden the understanding of this key coaching proficiency and how mastering it brings a more powerful experience to coaching - for you and for your client. By mastering this coaching proficiency, you'll be that much closer to passing the Certified Coach exam.

During the one-hour overview TeleClass, the instructor will cover the following...
1. The guiding principles of enjoying your client immensely.
2. How to enjoy your client even more.
3. How to know when you're NOT enjoying your client.
4. Setting boundaries.
5. The benefits - to you and your client - of you mastering this proficiency.

The Guiding Principles
1. Enjoy yourself first.
In order to really enjoy someone else and all their quirks, you have to be able to appreciate and enjoy your own first. If you don't, you'll end up judging them even without meaning to. It all starts with you.

2. Know that everyone is doing their best at any given time.
By knowing this you eliminate any pressure you might put on the client. This doesn't mean you don't help hold them to a higher standard. It means you trust that the greatest wisdom is from within them. Honoring this can actually free the client to move forward immensely.

3. Be fully present.
You must get out of your own way and let go of your need to add value or show what a great coach you are. The focus needs to be on them, completely. 

4. Be interested vs. being interesting.
Again, the focus is on the client. Be genuinely curious. Avoid the temptation to ask too many questions or probing too deeply without rapport. As you discover more about them and who they are, you will find lots to compliment them on and encourage them about.

5. Come from love.
Simply loving the client is probably the fastest way to creating a safe environment for the client to move forward. When you come from love you set your own agenda aside, which creates the space for the client to really move forward.

How to Enjoy Your Client Even More
1. Appreciation
Look for what you appreciate in your client, in the coaching experience with them. Tell them what you appreciate about them. Not only will it build rapport, make them feel good and more open, they will probably tell you what they appreciate about you as well. Gotta like that! 

2. See Perfection
See perfection in everything that happens - even your own "mistakes". This helps make it OK for your client to be going through whatever they are going through. Acknowledging the perfection eliminates judgment and opens the door to possibility and options.

3. Get curious
See the guiding principles above.

4. Enjoy the Moment
When you enjoy the moment, your client can sense it. You are the model for them to follow.

5. Think of it as Empowerment.
By thinking of enjoying your client as a form of empowerment, you have the incentive to actually do it. How much easier would coaching be (for you and your client) if you simply enjoyed it? How empowering would that be?

6. Enjoy the Pace
Coaches evolve pretty quickly. Most clients, they because they're not in the same levels of environments, move much much slower. Their seemingly slow pace of development is right for them. Enjoy the ease and the change it offers from your own normal, fast-paced growth. Celebrate each change with them. 

How to Know When You're NOT Enjoying Your Client
Seems obvious, but sometimes we get so caught up in adding value that we don't notice the warning signs.
1. You feel like you are doing all the work. 
In other words, when you take on more of the responsibility for coaching than they do. This is the sure-fire way to lead to disappointment, resentment, and/or not having fun.
2. You dread their coaching call.
Duh.
3. You feel drained after the call rather than energized.
Coaching your clients should be an energizing, inspiring experience for you. After all, that's part of why you do it, right? 
4. There's a mismatch.
When you cannot engage with them, either there's a mismatch going on, or they are done coaching with you.
5. You are frustrated with their "stuckness".
Whenever you are frustrated, that's a good sign that you are not enjoying your client. What's that frustration about for you? How could you employ one of the guiding principles or ways of enjoying your client to shift your energy?
6. Pay attention.
If you are not already, just pay attention to how you feel when you think about that particular client. Are you pleased or annoyed? Curious or frustrated? Peaceful or drained? Your own feelings are the perfect indicator of how much you are enjoying your client.


The Benefits of Enjoying Your Client Immensely
(how it's better for you and for your client!)
It is freeing for the client when the coach really enjoys them.
By enjoying your client, you are letting them know that you think they are OK - not broken or in need of being fixed.
To enjoy someone else, you have to actually enjoy yourself first.
When you enjoy the client, they tend to find their own value.
It is empowering - for you and them!
You will have more fun, which will make you more fun to work with, and hence, more attractive!
It keeps things lighter, which creates more space for possibilities. 

A Final Note About Boundaries
What do you do if a client ventures into an area that really goes against your values? 
Be clear with yourself and with your client about what you will talk about and what you won't. Saying something like, "That topic isn't my strong suit, can we focus on something else?" or "I'm just not up for that particular conversation." can be great ways of shifting the direction of the call.

The Curriculum

Class #2401 | required
Learning the CoachVille Coaching System
Wondering what the 15 Coaching Proficiencies, Life Frameworks, Client Deliverables, Listening Clarifiers and Communication Style Points are, how to use them, and how to integrate them into your coaching?  In this one hour session, we'll help you to get your arms around these components so that you can weave them into your coaching.  The 15 Proficiencies and the related elements comprise the Certified Coach designation.  Note that we won't be training you on the 15 Proficiencies themselves during this one hour but that we will be describing them and showing you how the whole coaching process works.  Single session/one hour.

Class #2402 | elective
The Million Dollar Coaching Company
If you've got your sights set on building a coaching company, special interest membership community or other market segment and you would like to know how coaches are jumping from $100,000 to $250,000 and even to $1mm in revenue through a combination of coaching, classes, licensing, assessments, memberships and more, then you will benefit from this overview.  You will also benefit even if you don't plan to go for the big numbers, given that you'll learn about how to target a market and serve that market in a variety of ways beyond traditional one to one coaching.  Single session/one hour. 

Class #2403 | required
Introducing Your Clients To New Frameworks
Frameworks are ways of thinking, akin to paradigms, "come-froms," personal operating systems, and even paradoxes.  One of the ways that the coach adds value to their clients is by freshening or expanding the client's thinking or assumptions and in this one hour overview, you'll be introduced to the 15 Frameworks, along with the specific situations that clients are in, and which are most fitting for each.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2404 | required
Designing Failsafe Structures for Performance
The discussion is for the coach who is coaching clients who have a lot at stake and need support structures to keep them focused and productive in their work or business.  And not just any support structures, but failsafe support structures, meaning support structures, systems and environments which are 'even stronger' than the client is.  If you've worked with busy/hectic clients who are distracted by the events of the day, then you'll understand the need for the coach to be proficient at designing and installing these types of sophisticated structures.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2405 | required
How to Develop a Client Coaching Program
If you've been wondering how to package what you know into a stand alone, highly targeted solution for a market segment, then you'll want to be in this one hour segment where we walk you through the steps to develop a client coaching program (meaning a coaching program for the public, including your clients).  As you can imagine, it's quite a jump from 'knowing stuff' to packaging that stuff into a defined and structured program, and we'll show you how.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2406 | required
How To Enjoy Your Client Immensely
Yes, we know this sounds a bit 'bland,' and rightfully you may be wondering what a training topic like this is doing in the GSC.  And, it's one of the most powerful of the 15 Coaching Proficiencies.  Why?  Because to get to this level of collaborative relationship with your client, yet still have an edge and be effective with them, calls for a fairly high level skill set and awareness level.  That's all we're going to say at this point but if you find yourself trying too hard with clients, being frustrated by them, wishing they would move faster, be more self generating or put into action what they are learning, then this one hour training will prove beneficial.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2407 | required
Understanding the 15 Client Deliverables
Our view is that every several minutes during a coaching session, value is being delivered or created. It's just that the client (and often the coach) haven't recognized it or been able to put it into words.  In this one hour overview of Client Deliverables, you will learn this language and we'll show you how to weave these terms into your coaching sessions so that your client will recognize all that they are receiving from you.  And interestingly, as you learn these 15 Deliverables, you're coaching will also shift to ensure that you are delivering these during your coaching sessions.  Quite clever when you think about it.  And, the more/better your clients understand what they are getting from you during their coaching sessions, the more they'll stick with you and have faith in the process until the "big result" occurs.  Single session/one hour.   

Class #2408 | elective
The Attraction Program Overview & Licensee Training
If you've heard about the 28 Attraction Principles and/or are curious about how to weave these into your coaching and/or conduct Attraction TeleClasses or Workshops yourself, then spend an hour with us and learn exactly how to do this.  You'll receive an overview of the Attraction Principles, and learn how and when to use them with your clients.  And, how to conduct a training or ecourse based on these principles for your clients, potential clients and/or the public.  Single session/one hour.  
(Please note that this session is not the full six-week version of the Personal Foundation Program; you can purchase that as an upgrade at http://www.coachville.com/attraction/default.html for only $49. We do recommend that you go through the six-week live TeleClass version so that you can experience this program for yourself and/or to conduct it for others, but we do not require that you do so.)


Class #2409 | required
3 Step Selling Process
Do selling and coaching go together?  Well, no, not really.  It's probably more nearly accurate to call this the "3 Step Buying Process."  That said, what you will learn in this one hour session is how to walk potential clients through a simple 3 step process to facilitate their process of buying coaching from you.  This process does work and it's completely "non-selly" in its foundation, tone and delivery. It's clean and natural and it's not manipulative.  And even the most dedicated of the "I hate selling" crowd will enjoy this 3 step process.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2410 | elective
Small Business Dashboard
With all the plates that the small business owner or professional has to spin, how can you coach them to focus on what really matters in their business (think dashboard in your car)?  Enter the Small Business Dashboard which is a visual way of thinking and looking at the 5 measurables that matter most to your client and their company.  We'll show you the 25 most common measurables, so that you can help your client select the top 5 that fit best for them.  By selecting the 'best' 5, your client will focus on what matters most, and have more time/space for your coaching because the fear/worry factor will have been reduced significantly.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2411 | elective
Certified Mentor Coach Training
Are you interested in coaching/mentoring other coaches and perhaps becoming a Certified Mentor Coach?  Details about this six week training are at http://www.graduateschoolofcoaching.com/tourcmc.html Six 2-hour sessions over 6 weeks.  

Class #2412 | required
Introduction to Group Coaching
Are you looking to offer coaching to groups of clients at the same time on a conferencing bridge?   If so, then come to learn the basics of setting up a group coaching practice or program.  We'll cover niches, marketing, call management, group dynamic, topic/focus selection, bridge use, email discussion lists and other tools to maximize the group coaching format. Single session/one hour. 

Class #2413 | elective
Winning Websites Tour
Thinking of setting up a website for your coaching?  Then take a live virtual tour of 10 websites that have earned the CoachVille Seal of Approval.  You'll learn what works (and what doesn't) and the many design, marketing and system features on a variety of coaching related websites.  (Note:  You will need two phone lines for this tour; one to call into the bridge as you would normally do, and one to be connected to the internet to take the web based tour concurrently.  If you have DSL, cable or satellite, then you only need one line of course, to call into the bridge on.) Single session/one hour.  

Class #2414 | required
Designing Environments to Support Growth and Change
Certainly, a person can rely primarily on themselves for their own growth, development and success. And, why put yourself through that stress and learning curve?  The idea behind this class is that success comes so much easier when one has designed and installed environments that support what the person is up to.  Why type of environments?  Everything from automation of bill paying to having a virtual assistant, from being part of a Mastermind type group to having a personal projects R&D Team.  You will learn about 25 such environments in this course.  Single session/one hour. 

Class #2415 | required
Working with Cultural Creatives
Cultural Creatives is the term used to describe the group of individuals who are the early adopters of progressive trends in a society. They are the ones who are creating and defining the future of life and living.  They are the experimenters, crafting new products, ideas, services, experiences and lifestyles.  And they respond well to coaches who understand their way of thinking and creating and who respect their sometimes radical approaches to their way of living and priorities.   In this one-hour session learn how to coach these Cultural Creatives.   These Cultural Creatives will keep you young and thinking fresh.  Single session/one hour.

Class #2416 | elective
How Thomas Is Able to Create As Much As He Does
The most often asked question of Thomas is "Do you ever sleep?"  Thomas' answer?  "8 hours a night!"  That said, however, the question remains as to how Thomas and crew can create so much new, fresh, practical content.  In this one hour session, one of thomas' colleagues shares his 10 secrets and will do his/her best to answer your questions as well. Single session/one hour.   

Class #2417 | elective
A Perfect Person Program Overview & Licensee Training
If you are howling with displeasure about the term 'perfect person,' then simply move on to another GSC course.  But if you find the idea intriguing for yourself and you feel that several of your clients are up for this game, then please sign up for this one-hour overview.  The Perfect Person Program is a client-driven and client-defined program that orients around the question: "If I were to become a perfect person, what are the 25 elements of my behavior, lifestyle and development that I would want to perfect?"  The Perfect Person Program provides a structure for clients/participants who want to engage themselves in that question for 30 to 90 days.  In this one-hour overview, you will learn the basics of the concept and the basics of how to offer this program to groups, or just to one client at a time.  Single session/one hour.   

Class #2418 | elective
Absence Of Program Overview & Licensee Training

Class #2419 | elective
The Reserve Program Overview &  Licensee Training
The notice and practice of sufficiency is a terrific one; and the notion of reserve/reserves takes sufficiency to the next level.  The basic idea here is that when one develops reserves in many areas of their life (i.e., money, energy, ideas, skills, opportunities, relationships, love, access), then life itself becomes a higher grade experience.  Why?   Because the certain percentage of your thinking, time and personal RAM that is taken up by fear and survival needs is reduced dramatically when you have reserves in all areas, thus freeing up one's natural energy and creativity.  It's a little hard to explain but life because easier and much richer when you, your body and your mind are utterly relaxed because you  have more than enough reserves.  Sufficiency, while useful, isn't enough to quiet the genes that cause us to waste a significant percentage of our resources to 'watching out' for our safety.  Single session/one hour.

Class #2420 | elective
101 Ways to Make Your Point Program Overview & License

Class #2433 | elective
Integrity Day Program and Licensee Training
The term "Integrity Day" sounds a bit dry, so you might want to jazz it up a bit by calling it Spring Cleaning Day, or Clear the Clutter Day or Get Your Taxes Done Day.  The way this program works is that folks call into a teleconferencing bridge at the top of the hour for about 7 minutes for 3 to 5 hours in row, usually on a Saturday.  Folks identify their measurables for each hour and support and challenge each other to make their targets.  Yes, we know that it sounds a little soft, but it works and is miraculous.   Details at http://www.integrityday.com.  The best way to learn how to lead one of these is to lead one of these, but during this one hour overview, we'll go over how to structure the calls, lead them well, schedule them and we'll answer your questions. Single session/one hour.

Transition Path: From Therapist to Coach
Are you currently a therapist who wishes to either add the coaching skills set and approach to your current clients, or perhaps launch a coaching-specific practice?  Join our instructor, a former therapist who will outline for you the basic shifts in thinking, the changes in approach and the tweaks in style that will facilitate this transition for you.   This one-hour discussion is also for therapists who have "been coaching their clients for a long time" and who consider themselves to be coaches.  As you will learn, there are additional shifts in thinking, assumptions, methodology and style to make a complete transition to coaching.  Coaching calls for a completely different orientation, even if it appears to be similar to some of the skills/approaches you used as a therapist. For many therapists, becoming a coach calls for a 180 degree turn.  Single session/one hour.  

Class #2435 | elective
Transition Path: From Consultant to Coach
Are you a business or technical or other consultant who is either transitioning into coaching or wish to be more 'coach like' in how you work with your clients?  If so, then join a consultant-turned-coach who leads this call and learn from him/her the changes in thinking, attitude, approach, communication style and packaging of services that are important to make this transition.  Single session/one hour.

How To Shift  a Client's Paradigm
A paradigm is a set of rules, a model of thinking/operating, a set of assumptions.  For example, Detroit (home of America's automobile industry) operated in the paradigm that the vast majority of Americans will only buy U.S. automobiles and thus, the Japanese car industry was not a threat.  Same with the Swiss and their watches.  Even as the evidence mounted, the paradigm was so strong, that both groups were in denial.  By the time they figured out that they were in a paradigm at all, it was too late; the momentum went to the Japanese who lived in a very different paradigm.  (The Japanese paradigm at that time was "We can/must learn all we can about making great cars, very inexpensively.")  There are personal paradigms as well these business paradigms.  We cover both in this one hour session.
