Creating Awareness and Tweaking Training Options

By Jonathan Reitz

May 21, 2015

I love working with coaches.

Either in training or as a mentor coach, working with coaches--especially coaches like readers of this blog, who have kingdom purposes in mind and want to get better--is the best thing I get to do.

I think that's because coaches are committed to Creating Awareness. It's one of the ICF Core Competencies, so it's one of the things we're about. Creating awareness seems to come to life in all of my interactions with other coaches.

I love that.

One of the awarenesses you've helped me with recently is that the CoachNet training tracks need some tweaking. I've heard several times from you--or someone like you--that CoachNet need to help developing coaches gain more experience. I hear you, and we're going to adjust to that feedback.

And that's why yesterday we stripped every training option out of the CoachNet store.

Seriously. Go in there right now and look around. It's crickets. If we were a brick-and-mortar operation, it would look like this:

But it's only for a few days. On Tuesday May 26 at 9am Eastern, an updated set of CoachNet coaching and training options will debut in the store. These new options are based on the feedback we got from you: Get more coaching experience into the training process!

Over the Memorial Day weekend, we'll be stacking the shelves of the CoachNet store with these new options.  Here's a quick preview of what you'll see:

  • An updated training flow built around four key learning strategies: Orient, Practice, Specialize, Internalize. I can't wait to show it to you.
  • Expanded training options for the rest of 2015.
  • And, summer options where you can pick up significant training hours in a condensed training calendar.

All of this comes out on Tuesday at 9am Eastern. Let's see if we can't create some new awareness for and your coaching!
