Becoming a Paid Coach... Or Just An Extremely Valuable and Influential Person
Becoming A Paid Coach
When I was in a networking business I did a TON of prospecting on the telephone.
I had to deal with a lot of prospects who were VERY challenging to work with.
I remember my early years--
Talk about frustration!
Many of them had no money.
Others had unrealistic expectations.
Some were just down right depressed.
Some would talk and talk and talk...
Some were distracted.
Some were really kind people but totally feared change.
Others only needed a nudge. For me to ask one good question that ended up leading them forward THANKING me for the dramatic impact it had on them it. Wow.
I learned the hard way--and the long way--how to positively influence people; how to change the way they think about things by helping them discover the answers for themselves.
As you know, with Barbara Silva's Coaching Cognition training soon opening up, you'll be able to learn these skills head on, in a safe environment and quickly.
Instead of it taking years it can be learned in months.
These skills will assist you in nearly every interaction you have (in your business AND personal life).
They'll assist you in understanding people in general (helping you in all forms of communication, including emails and copy), and how to lead people to action (key).
They'll assist you in your confidence, competence and how your marketing comes across.
Obviously, they will assist you in succeeding by addressing the "essential list" we've talked about over these last two weeks.
A Safe Environment To Learn To Lead
Just one of the valuable aspects of Coaching Cognition is live role playing.
You'll have lots of opportunities to participate in the LIVE role playing--
This alone can be life-changing... because it's where you learn some of the 'finer distinctions' (AKA, developing a "keen insight"--the first item on the 'essential list').
It may sound scary at first; but in this environment it's actually quite safe and fun--no one is ever put on the spot.
Role playing is an extremely important part of learning at a fast pace. Because it gives a type of "accelerated experience."
Here's why it's accelerated...
The Impact of a "Real Life" Role Playing Session
When role playing, one "coach in training" will pretend to be a challenging prospect or client. The other 'coach in training' will pretend to be the Coach.
Interactive discussions among the students and Barbara help the Coaches pinpoint key moments in the conversation where it could move forward, or fall flat.
Ever had a conversation with a prospect or client fall flat or go south when you wanted it to go north?
Imagine holding a compass that you could use during any given conversation and always knowing where north is (moving toward their goals positively).
And whenever your prospect or client goes the wrong direction you're able to ask a question to get them to realize ON THEIR OWN how to correct course so they can achieve what it is they want faster.
You'll have "Influence" with such a skill.
Through role playing with Barbara and the other students, you'll learn to recognize patterns in conversation and what to do to build bridges that lead it forward constructively.
The power comes by learning to recognize the patterns and 'own' the questions that definitively lead someone forward.
One of the role playing sessions I listened to was between Eric Walker and Claire Covington--they were in the first Coaching Cognition training course offered by Barbara.
Here, Eric Walker role plays as the client and pretends to have just signed up in a new opportunity and has very "Unrealistic Expectations."
Claire Covington pretends to be the Coach.
They then discuss the pivotal moments in the conversation where it could go north or 'south' and this is when you pick up the skills.
You'll have access to the recordings of this very role playing session with Claire and Eric, along with many more from the first students who have now graduated from Coaching Cognition.
AND, of course... you'll be able to have 'accelerated experience' of your own by partaking in the new LIVE sessions offered.
In the next two emails, I'm going to answer these two questions
1. "What Does Coaching Have To Do With YOUR Business." (just in case that isn't clear yet)
2. "How Coaching Impacts Your Personal Life"
I'll soon share the details of what is completely covered in this highly in-depth six month course.
In case you missed it, watch what Claire has to say about her experience with the entire Coaching Cognition program.
Hear Eric Walker on Coaching Cognition
We'll be opening this to new students for a limited time in early October.
After that, you'll have to wait until next year to become a coach with us again.
So if you have interest in moving forward fast this year with Coaching, please pay close attention to our emails.
I'll share more details as I have them.
Partners in success,
