In opening the mailbox #11, we've got some pandemic related questions to answer. It is time to rethink some of our strategies, and in doing so, we’ll not only be able to move forward now, but we will be repositioning ourselves for future growth.
In today's episode, we address these topics:
Are people still paying for coaching? If so, how can I encourage people to sign up sooner versus later so they can flourish in uncertain times?
I run into a brick wall when discussions turn to client acquisition. Business development is the least favorite part of what I do. So, what can I do to get clients?
The digital world has become much noisier since EVERYbody has jumped in with their offers. Should I jump in? How can I get noticed? And more importantly, how can I serve well?
The ICF updated their Coaching Core Competency Model in late 2019, and in this episode, our expert guests will give you an inside look into what’s changed and what hasn’t.
Tune in and stay up-to-date by learning:
The entirely new competency #2
Where and why the emphasis was changed from “coach-focused” to using partnership language
The beautiful balance between being and doing
The four types of coaching agreements

About John Ramstead
You know that you were designed to accomplish great things…but first, you must help your team eliminate conflict and take full ownership of their roles. You want to make an impact and not only retain your best people, but also create an environment for all of you that delivers the joy of living on purpose. Here’s what I know for a fact:
Living life fully alive is not only possible, but it is also right in front of you! The secret is figuring out exactly WHO you are and HOW you lead, then designing a flight plan so that your strengths and gifts take you to the destination you have dreamed of, but didn’t know quite how to reach.
My name is John Ramstead, and I love combining my experience as a Navy combat fighter pilot, Fortune 500 manager and serial entrepreneur with my passion for helping you and your team reach your full potential…all while incorporating the very valuable lessons I learned from surviving a near-fatal horseback riding accident in 2011. Recovering from a severe traumatic brain injury--that required 25 surgeries and put me under hospital care for almost two years—radically transformed my thinking and forced me to connect with who I was meant to be. I learned how to create my best life, and I am excited to help you and your team do the same!
