Beyond the Conversations: Supporting your clients after the session
How clients apply what they’ve learned in a coaching session makes all the difference. ICF Core Competencies focus on what happens during the coaching session itself, but how the client uses their time between sessions is what creates lasting change.
What a client does between sessions is often left to them to figure out. Yet there are several ways that we as coaches can set those clients up for success, WITHOUT being a babysitter! Setting up clients for success between sessions acts as a powerful force-multiplier on the net effectiveness of coaching.
By the end, you’ll have actionable steps to make your coaching more effective, have your existing clients more likely to re-up, and make your practice more attractive to new prospects.
This presentation will cover:
Attendees will receive 1.0 Core Competencies and 0.5 Resource Development CEU
- What it is to have a system (for your clients) and what difference that makes
How individuals vary in their receptiveness to being coached (and ways you can influence it)
- Systems that increase the effectiveness of coaching with little to no extra work
Meet John Larson
John Larson got his first introduction into the world of transformational coaching during his Landmark Forum here in St. Louis back in 2004. It was profoundly impactful and forever changed the trajectory of his life. YET he wasn’t great at being coached. When he himself was in the role of coaching others, he found that he wasn’t alone in this tendency. He quickly realized that these coaching shortcomings could easily be solved with a little bit of programming.
John is the founder and creator of CoachAccountable, a software platform born of that recognition and grown with the insight and collaboration of hundreds of coaches over the last 8 years and counting. His aim with CoachAccountable is to make coaching so much more than the conversations themselves, turning it more tangible and results-based in a way such that even the most hardnosed, uninitiated cynics would appreciate. His end goal is to make coaching mainstream, specifically a world in which everyone generally knows that, “yeah, duh, if you’re up to something in life OF COURSE you work with a coach.”
John originally moved to St. Louis to get a Masters in Computer Science at Wash U. He currently lives in Denver with his wife and two kids.
