    Becoming Comfortable with Selling Coaching

    November 18, 2020

    7:00 - 8:30 PM

    Many coaches are uncomfortable with selling. Even the word can bring on uneasy feelings.

    The ironic part is that as a coach in business for yourself you are essentially a full time sales person because we only get paid for selling our coaching services, or other offerings. So if you want to succeed you must become comfortable with the skillset of selling.

    In order to begin to master the art of selling without feeling pushy or intrusive we must look at it from a whole new perspective and understand our real job here. This webinar will help you relax with selling and really clear up your role in this process. As a result you can leave her with more confidence and use-now methods that work!

    Points Covered:

    • Turning our passion of coaching into an income source
    • The natural evolution of getting clients
    • Understanding we are a full-time sales person
    • Breaking down selling to better understand
    • Identifying need and timing
    • Becoming a master asker

    The presentation will last 60 minutes and will be followed by a 30 minute open Q&A. Participants will receive 1.5 Resource Development CCEU.

    Speaker: Jeff St. Laurent

    Jeffrey St Laurent took the leap and launched his full-time seminar & coaching business in 2004 after graduating from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).

    Since then he has devoted well over 9,000 coaching hours with clients and is a highly sought after presenter and business coach.

    Jeffrey is the author of the highly inspiring book “Being Fulfilled” as well as five other personal and business development audio/video training programs that benefit entrepreneurs at all levels of conscious development.

    In 2014 Jeff shifted his focus to Helping Coaches Transition to a Full-Time Business as he saw a huge need because most coaches struggled. Now as a mentor coach with his business SellingCoaching.com he is dedicated to showing coaches how to structure their business from the ground up and get comfortable with the skillset of selling.

    Jeff’s WHY through it all is simple: “To be a part of people’s success.”

    ICF Philadelphia is excited to announce we will be offering Coaching Supervision as part of our 2020 Community of Practice series. Ken Giglio, Principal of Mindful Leadership Consulting, and a certified coach supervisor, will be leading supervision groups for external and internal coaches based on his Tri-Lens Coaching Supervision Model™. The separate groups for internal and external coaches will be tailored toward the unique challenges that come with coaching situations for coaches working with leaders internally and those working with clients externally. These monthly virtual meetings for each group will be held for 1.5 hours each. 

    Coaching Supervision is a collaborative learning practice to continually build the capacity of the coach through reflective dialogue for the benefit of the coaches, their clients, and their organizations. (adapted ICF definition). Group supervision uniquely provides a space for collective reflection and learning. Coaches explore the depth and breadth of their coaching work through three lens—self as coach; relationship with the client; influence of the system/s in which the client works. The group experience is designed to build a coach’s confidence, competence, connection, creativity, and compassion.

    The ICF recognizes coaching supervision as part of a coach’s  continuing professional development, and up to 10 hours of coaching supervision (delivering and/or receiving) will be counted toward Continuing Coach Education requirements. (Note: ongoing coaching supervision is a required practice by European and Australian coaching bodies, and it is also required by a growing number of corporations for coaches to obtain work.)

    Pre-work for Group Coaching Supervision:

    Please come prepared to present to the group a coaching case or theme/s from your coaching practice that you are curious about, have questions around, or may be struggling with. Reflect on how this coaching situation is impacting you and your relationship with your coaching client, and also reflect on how the system in which the client works might be impacting the coaching engagement. Ask yourself,

    • What am I noticing?
    • What am I sensing in my body and my surroundings?

    Bio:  Ken Giglio is Principal of Mindful Leadership Consulting, a global leadership consulting and executive coaching firm, with over 130 coaches and coach supervisors partnering with top organizations globally. Ken leads his team in developing mindful leaders to be attentive and present within themselves, with others, and with the systems in which they work.
