Executive Coaching Special Interest Group
New coaches and experienced coaches alike have an opportunity to leave a powerful impression with prospective corporate clients, but frequently struggle with their message and communicating the value of executive coaching. What value do they bring to the client and their sponsor? What is the process of executive coaching? How do you measure ROI? Even more fundamentally, what is executive coaching?
In the December 6th kickoff we will explore the key components to position yourself and your work for repeat business from corporate sponsors. This 90-minute Executive Coaching Special Interest Group (ECSIG) meeting will be facilitated by Craig Juengling, PCC, coaches will discuss key learning objectives such as:
- What the research says about how to be an effective executive coach?
- What is executive coaching and how to coherently present it.
- Building the business case for executive coaching.
- What distinguishes you as an executive coach?

Dreams: The power of leveraging your coaching
Wednesday, January 16th | 12:00pm to 1:30pm (CST)
Neuroscience tells us that everybody dreams. History tells us that dreams have inspired scientific discoveries (Einstein, Bohr), music (McCarthy) and literature (Shelly, Stevenson) to name a few. Virtually all cultures prior to the modern age valued dreams as part of the human experience; it is only fairly recently that we have confined dreams to the analytic process and convinced ourselves that their meanings are clouded in mystery that can only be deciphered by experts.

Life Coaching Isn’t Just for Grownups – Three Skills Every Child Should Learn Before the Age of 10
Wednesday, February 20th | 12:00pm to 1:00pm (CST)
When faced with challenges or disappointments, most kids don’t have the tools to handle them. As a result, they often get down on themselves or give up on themselves – developing belief systems that can hold them back for the rest of their lives. As coaches, we’ve seen the impact of childhood events on adult clients over-and-over again! Coaching isn’t just for grownups. It’s a game changer for our youth when they learn how to break through limiting beliefs and proactively create supportive beliefs to help them thrive. Life coaching can help kids learn how to use the power of their thoughts to handle the ups and downs of growing up and to develop a mindset for creating happiness, confidence, and success in life. In this session coaches will learn about three mindset skills that all kids should learn before the age of 10 and how they can use stories and activities to coach kids (the skills work for grownup clients too).

You need three things to grow your business: you need to know who your ideal clients are, where they hang out and you must have an irresistible offer. Too often I see entrepreneurs fail to work with their ideal clients because they haven’t put together the right offer So, in this interactive presentation, you’ll learn how to package, name & price your services so that you can raise your rates and the two most common mistakes that solopreneurs make when putting together their programs that costs them $1,000 (and what to do instead).
