Coaching Groundwork Advanced.


What is it? It’s an 16-hour coaching course that bridges the gap between beginner and advanced coaching skills for the new coach who is on the path to success.


Coach Cheryl Warner, CCC"Getting a chance to coach today (my first time ever!) was very helpful as I found myself with a little doubt. So the positive feedback from Julia and others was reassuring which will help my confidence grow... Thank you :-)" - Coach Cheri Warner, SCM-CCC

The gap between beginner and advanced coaching skills can cost you time and money everyday because...

  • You may lose clients that you could help
  • That means you won't make the money you deserve
  • That means you can't run your business the way you want
  • That means you'll spend your time doing the wrong things
  • And that means you'll lose more clients you could help...
  • Soon you're stuck in a vicious cycle

Does any of this sound familiar? Then read on...

Coach Chery Gebhart, CCC"This class has been very effective in simplifying the communication process between Connecting, Clarifying and Creating. In addition, the time spent coaching between class participants was exceptionally useful in internalizing being present and listening." - Coach Cheryl Gebhart, SCM-CCC



Coaching Groundwork Advanced bridges the gap between beginner and advanced coaching skills by addressing the issues that stop new coaches from succeeding:


  • How do I change a client's life in minutes?
  • How do I create the kind of results that attract high-paying clients?
  • How do I market without seeming pushy?
  • How do I know when someone wants to work with me?
  • What's the best way to close a sale?
  • How do I run my business with integrity?
  • How do I organize my time so I coach more and work less?
  • What do I do when I don't know how to coach someone?
  • How do I find my niche and specialty?
  • What do I do if a client doesn't pay me?
  • What are the ethical requirements of professional coaching?
"The coaching practices and discussions are very helpful". - Coach Carol Diaz, SCM-CCC
