The site is divided into three sections to address the three most important aspects of coaching.
To keep things fun and informative, and coaching memorable, we used the word "coaching" to describe the three sounds great coaches hear most, and we used those sounds to define the functions of this site.
The first sound is Oh! Great coaches hear this sound when they increase understanding and provide new and immediately useful knowledge to their clients faster and more efficiently than the client could ever manage on his/her own. This section contains articles, reports, research, tips, tools and resources that add knowledge and increase understanding represent Oh!.
The second sound is Ah! Great coaches hear this sound when they have substantially increased awareness, insight and deeper wisdom such that clients can effectively apply the knowledge they have gained, progress faster and sustain the gains they make longer. This section contains articles, quotes, bits of wisdom, and images, sights and sounds that inspire, add insight and lead to deeper wisdom represent Ah! .
The third sound is C’ ching! Great coaches hear this sound when they increase success and profitability for their clients and, in the process, for their families and themselves. This section contains articles, reports, research, tips, tools and resources that increase business, improve marketing outcomes, turn prospects into raving fans and paying clients, and lead to greater prosperity for you and your clients represent C’ ching!
All the information about how to succeed as a coach ultimately boils do the these three sounds, which are beautifully self-contained in the word "coaching."
Oh! is represented by the letter “o” in cOaching
Ah! is represented by the letter “a” (coAching)
And C’ Ching! is represented by the rest of the word (Coaching)
Great coaches hear these sounds a lot.
Oh! is heard when clients suddenly “get” something they never quiet realized or understood before.
Ah! Is heard when profound insights occur and when awareness and knowlwdge deepen to become true wisdom.
C’ Ching! is heard when clients become so successful as a result of being coached effectively that they enthusiastically endorse and recommend their coach to others. It is the sound of growing success, which applies to both great coaches and their clients.
All three factors are vitally important. Without the first two factors, your clients won’t have an exceptional coaching experience to you get to the third factor. Without the third you will not be able to continue coaching and the world will lose all you have to offer.
We strongly believe in the value and power of coaching and want you to succeed in a BIG way. We want you to have and keep an edge so your business continues to grow and thrive. We are here to help.
