Do you follow a proven format for coaching clients? If not, consider that the best 1:1 coaching programs not only follow a proven format, but they offer more than phone calls and Skype meetings as well.
Coaching Tools Include
- Reading material (books, e-books, blogs, etc.)
- Video—either for training purposes, to illustrate a point, or to offer inspiration
- Audio content
- Simple printables to help explain ideas and concepts
Many coaching tools are easily repurposed from your own business. For example, if you have standard operating procedures or a variant of checklists that would be beneficial to your clients, rebrand them and offer as PDF downloads.
You can also create a reading list of your favorite books. Compile a list of useful You-Tube videos. Package your email responses to share.
Worksheets that offer fill-in-the-blank questions can help your clients work through complex or confusing processes, and will serve as a reminder in coming weeks or after their coaching program is completed, so they can continue to benefit.
Another option for high-end coaching programs is to send your clients physical books that will help with their growth. If you’ve written a book, another idea is to send clients a physical copy of your book, perhaps even customized for them, with notes in the margins or sticky notes to highlight important chapters.
