Tools of the Trade
We all have our favorite go-to tools we use most often. We do that for a reason – they work! This Cutting Edge Conversation is an opportunity to share either a coaching tool or a business tool that you absolutely would not want to do without. It could be a tool you developed yourself that you are willing to share or an old standby like the Wheel of Life you use in a unique way. Perhaps you have a filing system, scheduler, social media, or marketing tool you use on the operations side business that has become invaluable to your business – those are welcome in this discussion as well. Our fellow coach colleagues have a wealth of experience and wisdom to share. This conversation is about learning new methods from each other. If your favorite tool is a worksheet or product of some kind that you can bring to show us, that would be helpful to the visual learners in the group. The definition of tool is broad; it could be a worksheet, visualization, concept, book, exercise, assessment, video, website, organizer, poster, software, notebook et al. Bring your creativity and willingness to try something new.
In this Cutting Edge Conversations, we will explore:
- What is your favorite coaching tool(s) and why?
- How can I incorporate a new tool into my established way of doing business?
- What do I do when I am resistant to incorporating a new tool/system?
- How do I incorporate a new tool when it changes the way I interact with established clients?
- How does willingness to incorporate new practices expand my range as a coach?
