Topic: How to Develop a Thriving Coaching Business

As a coach are you satisfied with the results of your business?Would you like to have more clients and more clarity in how to make that happen? Although we may be competent and committed coaches, we may never have considered the “business side” of coaching. Come join your colleagues on November 5th when we address this important topic. We will learn the importance of being an effective coach and an effective entrepreneur and explore the distinction between business development and sales. A practical model for business development and sales in coaching will be presented.
