How to Maximize A Coaching Call
Have you ever wanted to book a coaching call with someone, but unsure if it’s really going to benefit you? I mean, you’re about to invest in a phone call, isn’t that kinda crazy? Yes, if you’re talking to the wrong person.
If you’re like me, you want to improve your business like 100% of the time, but between clients, product creation, blogging, emails, administrative work, you just don’t have the time to dedicate to an super intensive coaching experience.
Don’t get me wrong, there is crazy value in those. I would actually love to participate in something like this, but just don’t have to time right now. Between running a business and taking care of newborn, I can barely get the laundry done.
So, for people like me who are in a season of limited time to dedicate to work, coaching calls are pure gold. It allows you to connect with someone who has expertise with one specific area you want to grow without dishing out thousands of dollars.
It also provides a unique one-on-one experience! I always learn better when I am able to ask follow up questions, get specific advice, and just chit-chat. That’s why I have always loved coaching calls. I typically don’t need to do a massive overhaul with my business, I am just looking for some advice and support for a specific area of my business.
So, as you can see, coaching calls are what I love.
If you find yourself interested in booking a coaching call with someone (like me?!), you want to make sure you’re prepared so you walk away with the best experience and success!
Three ways to maximize a coaching call:
Come prepared: Whenever I have a call with a client, I always send “homework” several days before the call. There have been times when the client does not do the homework and comes to the call unprepared. This does not help us get off on a productive note. The homework is there for a reason and if you don’t take the time to prepare, you probably won’t get as much out of the call. And then you might walk away feeling like it was a waste of money. That’s no bueno! So, if you are going to invest in the call, make sure you’re willing to prepare beforehand for about 30 minutes.
Ask Questions: before the coaching call starts, make sure you have a list of questions ready. For me, I often forget the questions I have when it’s time to ask questions. I get distracted by the conversation that we are having and then after the call is over, they all come rushing back in. So, when you’re doing the advance homework for the call, take 5 minutes to write down some questions you have for the coach/mentor.
Do the work: after the call, put the advice into action! You just invested in your business with your money, now it’s time to invest in your business with your time. So, set aside a couple hours per week to put what you learned into practice. If you aren’t willing to do the work, why are investing in a coaching call? I know we often purchase online courses and then don’t even go through the content. Don’t let that happen with a coaching call! Do some work and see the magic happen.
I’ve had the opportunity coach creatives and it’s one of my favorite parts of my business. One of the missions and values of my business is to empower and encourage women. And there’s nothing I love more than to use my business experience to empower women to run profitable and heartfelt businesses. It is such a gift.
