Durham CEC:  Chemistry and Fit - How to Know When

It's There and When It's Not
Thursday, April 25, 2019

4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

In the hustle of building your coaching business, have you ever overlooked the “Chemistry or Fit” between you and the client?  Maybe signed up a client knowing the match wasn’t quite right? Learn why it’s important to determine beforehand, if we will have the right chemistry with our clients. Plus, how to know if it’s a good match for building a strong coaching relationship.

Conversely, what if at the outset all was great, then over time the chemistry fades and the fit is no longer working. What can we do to reignite it when it gets lost along the way? Or if it can’t be revived, we will discuss the steps needed to graciously bow out of the coaching engagement.

In this CEC, we will discuss: 

  • Chemistry and fit - how to know when it is there and when it is not
  • Share stories of how we have overcome this situation
  • Why we chose to stay and struggled through it
  • How to let go with grace and move on

Come prepared to share your successes and strategies in managing the “relationship of coaching.”
